If you mean this:

include/linux/hyperv.h | 321 +----------------------------------------
include/uapi/linux/Kbuild | 1 +
include/uapi/linux/hyperv.h | 344 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

create mode 100644 include/uapi/linux/hyperv.h

you've got the rough idea of uapi headers :-).

Whether that makes sense at all in the hyperv case, you'll have to wait
for the hyperv guys to say something.

What makes me wonder is why do you need to export this now?

Because if those userspace hyperv tools would really need the
definitions in that header, then they never did build before. Which
would be really stupid. Btw, which userspace hyperv tools do you mean?
Where are they?

What am I missing?
