    It was probably at one point for the sake of asm/openpromio.h but
    that header has no dependencies on openprom.h

    The only hit I can find in google code search, for non-kernel code, is
    the SILO bootloader.

    But that tree includes it's own copy of include/asm/openprom.h so
    the actual kernel copy isn't even used.

    I'd say we can stop exporting that header and also therefore not
    worry about making phandle_t visible to userspace.
