I am working on a small wireless sniffer (i.e. everything is passed directly
to userspace via bpf; no libpcap involved). One design solution was to
follow the generic ieee80211(4)-framework as closely as is possible.

It works very well for this purpose too and I can naturally roll my own
functions/macros, but given that I use ieee80211.h-structures, it feels
stupid to rewrite something that is already there.

So not a problem as such. Can you give any other hints about kernel-only
headers in this context?
