Header files private to a driver should be alongside the driver.  Look
at drivers/net or drivers/scsi for plenty of examples.

Just because its a header file does not mean it must be in some directory
with 'include' in its path.  The only reason to put it in include/linux
is if it contains stuff which needs to be shared outside of the driver
(eg, with arches).
