Fair enough - I thought about that, but then realised we don't
really have any "global" shared header files that fit this purpose.
The only two really are xfs_fs.h - which is used for ioctl interface
definitions - and xfs_types.h which is used for type definitions,
not structure instances...

So I'm not really sure where we'd put something like this without
creating a new header file, and I don't really want to do that,
