Okay, this is in include/uapi but surrounding by __KERNEL__ so I guess
it's still okay to remove it?

btw: why it is not static in seg6_iptunnel.c then?

Anyway I will wait until I hear something back what the use of headroom
exactly is and why the original authors of segmentation routing sets it.
In my case it will simple not work with a IPv6 min mtu so I will set it
to zero for possible net-next patches.
