The idiom used in the kernel for such code is "global code and compile
the files separately". The expected inclusion for a C file into the
kernel is through the Makefile, and everything else is surprising when
looking through the code.

"artificial interfaces" is not a problem since these are completely
private interfaces you can change at any time.
