Subject[Patch] Always include <linux/types.h>
Hardly any file in the kernel can be compiled without including
<linux/types.h>, directly or indirectly. And I'd wager a beer that
noone can find a non-trivial example. I couldn't.

So instead of sprinkling even more #include <linux/types.h> everywhere -
140 headers in include/linux/ would need that to compile standalone -
let us just pass it automatically.

The existing 4000 odd includes for types.h, plus some 300 each for
compiler.h and stddef.h, which get pulled through types.h, can get
removed at leasure.
