Ordinarily, yes, it is preferable to include the needed .h files from
within the .c files. However quite a mumber of kernel subsystems do
take the #include "everything.h" approach.

However, drivers/bcma is a bit odd in that it has bcma_private.h which
includes delay.h (the everything.h approach) but most .c files
explicitly include other things, including export.h.

There's no real pattern here and yes, I agree that the minimal and more
typical approach is better.
