It's fine with me, but asm/compat.h is also included in
hw_breakpoint.c, process.c, ptrace.c and signal.c.

After replacing asm/compat.h to linux/compat.h in these files, I could successfully built
the kernel, but I can't guarantee that the kernel works without any problem :-)

Anyway I will go forward with this change.
