Why would userspace need/want all of these inline functions? A uapi
header file should just have a the structures that are passed
user/kernel and any needed ioctls. Why would they ever care about
strange byte flip functions and a ton of inline functions?

I don't think this is needed, of if it is, I really don't want to see
your crazy userspace code...
