FYI, these __KERNEL__ ifdefs in non-uapi headers should go away.

Splitting uapi headers is standard practive, no need for the comment,
especially not with a meaningless driver version number.

This needs the syscall noticed for uapi headers.  FYI, what is our
stance of just adding that notice to headers newly moved to UAPI?
Do we need agreement from everyone who touched the file?  Or just
after we started the split and SPDX annotations, as in this case
this header used to be available to user programs?
