You use a local copy of this header file in iproute2, you don't even
use the kernel header itself.  It's the worst possible example and
excuse for this change.

Nobody references this header directly for these definitions.
The one and only use is using a local copy.

iproute2 is the only thing even remotely referencing this stuff.

So there is no breakage.  The only breakage is if you, Stephen, decide
to copy the kernel header into iproute2 as-is, and that is your
choice.  :-)
