I know Dan and Bryan have some experience with the kernel and its headers. Maybe they can shed some light, or get hold of an opinion from upstream?
That's probably a gross overstatement of my experience with the kernel
I believe sisfb.h is proper public API. I don't know who uses it
(DirectFB shows up on Google code search), but that's been exported
from the kernel pretty much since David Woodhouse added the
Additionally, it appears 2.6.24 will have two more headers in there,
uvesa.h and edid.h. So, I'd suspect the video/ headers are proper API
for Linux and don't conflict with anything else, like glibc.
