Staging code should be self-contained within drivers/staging/

Now I know that a bunch of people are now working on this codebase, and
hopefully it will finally get moved out of staging someday soon, but
until then, I can't add this file in this location, sorry.

Look at how the drivers/staging/android code handles the uapi files, you
should try doing that instead.
