This file was taken from the Linux Kernel source tree and slightly
altered (Dropped everything in #ifdef __KERNEL__ as not needed and
useful in userspace). So this is licensed under the GPL. Would it
suffice to add a notice about this to debian/copyright (plus the
copyright information for the same file)? Or might it be better to
depend on linux-kernel-headers and take the file from there
