I kind of expected this feedback.
The reason is that CAIF originally was written as a OS independent stack, 
with a thin glue layer for OS specific things.
I am aware that this is not the preferred way of doing it in the Linux kernel.
As mentioned to Marcel Holtmann, my problem is that I have more than 50 unit
tests in User Space that I might have to ditch if I remove cfglue.h and list.h.

But I'll probably do as you suggest in the next patch set...
