I think this probably depends on the type of include. For headers in
include/linux the reasoning is that they can change often as part of
some rework and this has in the past caused unrelated files to break
builds because suddenly a file no longer has all required definitions
available.

It's slightly different for header files that have a narrower exposure
because the chances of breaking things randomly are much lower.

With those changes, this is:
