Wow, that was fast!

Anyway looking at the patch this seems to be incomplete. We should
synthesise a cycleway for the following tags:
track,left,rigt,lane and yes.

Where left or right will imply oneway=yes.

Hm, I'm not shure if this is a good idea, because the Garmin devices tend
to prefer real cycleways over generic roads. This may not be the expected
behaviour for one-way roads thus it might be better to assign the real type
of "highway".
