Userspace visible of 3 include/asm/ headers

Could anyone help me regarding the desired userspace visibility of the
following three headers under include/asm/?

Header : cpufeature.h
Architectures : i386, x86_64
Is there any reason why this header is exported to userspace?

Header : setup.h
Architectures : i386, ia64, x86_64
- COMMAND_LINE_SIZE on ia64, x86_64
- much more on i386
Should COMMAND_LINE_SIZE be visible to userspace?
Anything else from the i386 setup.h?

Header : timex.h
Architectures : all architectures
Offers CLOCK_TICK_RATE on all architectures, but on some architectures
(like i386) this depends on the kernel configuration.
-> not a userspace header?



Gentoo kernels are 42 times more popular than SUSE kernels among
KLive users (a service by SUSE contractor Andrea Arcangeli that
gathers data about kernels from many users worldwide).
