    Well, I'm all for cleaning up sched.h, it includes way too much things
    not strongly related to kernel/sched*.c like a lot of the signal things
    and the misnamed signal_struct (should be called process_struct or

    That also causes the inversion between sched.h and wait.h

    What I don't like is those _types.h headers, and definitely not the
    massive explosion of those as per the proposed patch.

    Nor do I quite get why all that is needed, sched_types which would
    define task_struct still needs the new task_rcu_struct bits, and as per
    the patch you need to split the rcu headers into two. Once you've done
    that, I don't see why sched.h still needs splitting too.
