I will argue just this one point. I don't think this is true. There are many
things in machine/foo headers that I do not consider to be part of the public
KPI, but are solely for use in MD code, for example for the nexus(4) driver to
interface with other MD code such as msi.c or intr_machdep.c on x86. Almost
all of <machine/intr_machdep.h> falls into this category. In fact, I don't
see a single thing in the current <machine/intr_machdep.h> that is intended to
be used by any MI code and is part of the public KPI.
