These are known, in Australia at least, as "Copenhagen-style bike lanes".
(Seems to have limited use outside Australia, from a quick google.)

That has the problem that some parts of the world spell it "kerb".

I think it should definitely be a kind of cycleway, rather than an extra
option:
cycleway=protected
cycleway=copenhagen
cycleway=segregated_lane
...

You would definitely want to tag it two-way or one-way though. I think
one-way is more common, but the example I pasted has both directions on the
one side of the street.
