They were exposed to userspace already.  On my Fedora 16 test box, I see:

	[root@...romeda ~]# grep -r IFF_EBRIDGE /usr/include/linux
	/usr/include/linux/if.h:#define IFF_EBRIDGE     0x2             /* Ethernet bridging device.    */

which is from:


which was built before UAPI proper started going in:

	[root@...romeda ~]# rpm -qfi /usr/include/linux/if.h | grep "Build Date"
	Build Date  : Wed 16 May 2012 23:05:59 BST

Looking at commit 607ca46e97a1b6594b29647d98a32d545c24bdff, I see:

	--------------------------- include/uapi/linux/if.h ---------------------------
	similarity index 100%
	rename from include/linux/if.h
	rename to include/uapi/linux/if.h

so my script just moved it without alteration.
