This has to be justified. Usually such file use macro definitions which
are defined by the file including them.

If you can not justify, there is probably a way to have your file as its
own .c/.h unit.

Yes, no exception.

Not necessarily, you can have .h.inc included in .c.inc:

Function prototype declarations -> .h
If generated -> .h.inc

Function body definitions -> .c
These can NOT go in .h, so if generated -> .c.inc

Inlined function body definitions -> .h/.c/.h.inc

Yes, although it is harder to justify human-written .inc.


Header exposing subsystem X API to other subsystems go in include/..X..h
(example include/hw/sd/sd.h)

Header sharing prototypes local to a particular subsystem go in X/..h
(example hw/sd/sdmmc-internal.h)

*.inc must not go in include/
