There is no screwdriver for those fasteners. They are not made to be removed. You might be able to hold them in a vice and unscrew them from the bigger part. Be careful not to break the big piece. You might be able to use locking pliers.
Maybe take a dremel tool and cut part way through them, then try to use a chisel to open the small piece off the threaded stud.
If that won't work, you can heat the big part a little bit. Only a little. And then try to unscrew the stud from the bigger piece.

There is a technique I've used that doesn't damadge anything in the car other then the bolts.
But , as its an ignition lock , I will not go further into it on an open board.

Those are shear head bolts. There was a hex head attatched to them when they were installed, which breaks off at a predetermined torque, resulting in what you have now. Automotive topic.

We use those kind of bolts on street signs to make the vandal proof. Once the head snaps, no regular tool will remove them.
Since I fix stuff for a living (or at least supervise the guys that do), here's how I'd handle that: They make a set of sockets for removing damaged bolts and nuts. It's a set of sockets with a tapered, left hand thread inside instead of the usual hex head. You put them on a damaged bolt and turn with a ratchet. The socket threads itself firmly onto the fastener and removes it.
Or, I would put a nut over the end of the bolt and weld the nut to the bolt inside the nut. They use any wrench to remove. But first, I'd try the simple way, I'd just use a pair of vice grips and see if that would turn them.

Use a dremel to cut a slot into the screw. Then you've got yourself a flathead screw.

I cut a slot in them, and if they won't unscrew, i cut the heads off... then they are easy to remove. I do not use an easyout on them nor mig weld a nut on them cause of the sparks on stuff ( actually i am too lazy to cover things up real good...)Rick

Most folks simply use an ice pick to put an indentation and then using the same ice pick and light taps from a hammer to back them out.
