I think that is a valid point. I would expect the test<->driver UAPI to track the kernel
version since the sources are "released" together. I suppose a version number could be
included in the request structure to handle mismatch driver and test program but that
may be overkill.
Are you suggesting that include/linux/test_hmm.h is a better location?
