As you already have the SPDX line up there, you do not need this
paragraph.  Please remove it from all of the new files you have added in
this series.

We know the filename, no need to have it here again.

Now this is what probably needs more information...

For enums you export to userspace, you need to specify the values so
that all compilers get them right.

You should never need a version, that way lies madness.

You better be testing this for 0, right?
