Probably the simplest is to put the names of the header files in a file,
eg find . -name "*h" > header_list, and then give the arguement
--file-groups header_list to Coccinelle.

Another option is to use python in te semantic patch to detect the current
file and then abort if it doesn't end in .h.  But that would be much
slower because the undesired files would still be parsed.
