The idea is that file-system on-disk layout is stable, so it should be easy for
you to have a copy, and you do not need to ever update it unless you add
support of a new feature in busybox which requeres an up-to-date header file,
and this should be a rare event.

>From the FS'es POW - the on-disk layout is not kernel-userspace API so kernel
should not export it to user-space. This will also make things easier for the
kernel people - we can freely clean-up/rename/shuffle things in the header
without being afraid of breaking busybox or any other tool.
