Hmm, we can't include this one because it pulls in linux/bitops.h. I've
moved the percpu cmpxchg stuff into asm/percpu.h, but that too is missing
the linux/preempt.h #include, so I've added that as well.

Generally, I think if we want to clean up our #includes then that's better
done as a separate series rather than as a piecemeal effort, which will
likely fail to identify many of the underlying problems.
