    Bear in mind that with the first cut of the headers_install I was trying
    to keep it entirely uncontentious and stick to _mechanism_, not policy.
    The _first_ set of exported headers still aren't ideal, and we're still
    cleaning up some parts of them (like properly getting rid of the
    _syscallX() macros, etc.).

    We've only just started to be sensible about what we export to userspace
    -- it's not entirely set in stone at this point,
