Please don't put filenames in the top of file block comments. They're
redudant and as history shows out of date far too often.

> +#ifdef __KERNEL__

Please split the user/kernel ABI and kernel implementation details into
two different headers. That way we don't have to run unifdef as part of
the user headers generation process and it's much cleaner what bit is a
kernel implementation details and what's the public ABI.

Please use enums here.

Please try to avoid spilling over the 80 chars limit. In this case it's
easy, just put the comment before the field beeing documented.

Having global arrays is not very nice. Any chance this could be hidden
behind proper accessor functions?

The code implementing these prototypes doesn't exist.

Dito. Please clean the header from all this dead code.

Why does this need a return value?

Please make this an initcall in this file and make sure it's linked before
kevent_users.c

Could you reorder the file so these forward-declaring prototypes aren't
needed?

> + for (i=0; i<ARRAY_SIZE(u->kevent_list); ++i)

for (i = 0; i < ARRAY_SIZE(u->kevent_list); i++)

So we have a pagefault handler that allocates pages.

but you always map the first page. This model sounds odd and rather confusing.
Do we really need to avoid of the cost of the pagefault just for the special
first page?

If so please at least use vm_insert_page() instead of remap_pfn_range().

Please remove that #if 0 code.

We were rather against these kind of odd multiplexers in the past. For
these three we at least have a common type beeing passed down so there's
not compat handling problem, but I'm still not very happy with it..

This one on the other hand is plain wrong. At least it should be a separate
syscall. But looking at the code I don't quite understand why you need
a syscall at all, why can't kevent be implemented as a cloning chardevice
(on where every open allocates a new structure and stores it into
file->private_data?)
