Which API?  I'm not familiar with KVM internals.

My concern is that when I think of a user-space header file, I think of a
user-space application that calls ioctls.  I know that KVM guest kernels
run as user-space processes, but that does not seem like a reason to
combine all of the header files that the KVM guest kernel needs with
"real" user-space header files.
