Admittedly I know nothing about the kernel selftests although copying
the UAPI header, seems to defeat the purpose of this exercise.
Shouldn't one reuse the existing header ? It would even cause issues
as the interface gets updated (iirc Gustavo changed the ioctl numbers
and/or header name with latter series).
