This is gross.

Please explain how keeping headers on the filesystem is not OK due
to "licensing and other issues" but keeping a module on the filesystem
is OK.

Please don't.

IKHD_ST IKHD_ED are bogus artifacts as others mentioned.
proc_create(S_IFREG) is redundant.
seq_file.h is not needed as is THIS_MODULE.
I'd say such data should live in their own section for easy extraction
with "objdump -j", something /proc/config.gz never did.
