It _isn't_ significantly more work. The _real_ work is in reading
through the header files and deciding which parts should be private and
which can be public, then splitting them up accordingly into separate
files (or using 'ifdef __KERNEL__' if appropriate). That's the kind of
thing that you seem particularly good at, which is why I've asked if you
could help us with it.
Moving the public files from one directory to another, if they've been
suitably marked or listed somewhere, is _trivial_. Even if you've used
#ifdef __KERNEL__ it's simple enough to do it automatically with tools
like unifdef. The _real_ work which requires human attention is the same
But if you're not willing to help, that's fine. I just thought you'd be
particularly suited to the task, that's all.
