What I meant was:
The header currently does not help a relevant number of users
(it would make Zeranoe's and Hendrik's life a little easier, that's
all). In the future, it will be useful because AMD plans to provide
a Linux driver. But I have a feeling that the current header will
not work for this future driver, meaning adding the header now
may be counter-productive.

That's completely apart from the fact that this header file does
not comply with any style guide while Nvidia's does (from a
very quick look at both files).
