As far as I can tell, nobody thought it would be a problem to move it
from asm/sockios.h to linux/sockios.h, as the general rule is that one
should use the linux/*.h version if both exist, and that the asm/*.h
version only contains architecture specific definitions. The new
definition is the same across all architectures, so it made sense to
have it in the common file.

If the assumption was wrong, the obvious solution is to duplicate the
definitions everywhere or move the common parts into
asm-generic/sockios.h, but it would have been better to hear about
that earlier.
