That's just my opinion. Anyway, if this header needed only for declaring single enum
it worth to replace include with enum declaration.

That's why we need to remove reboot.h from iop13xx.h.
Are you going to send a proper formatted patch for that?

Speaking of asm/page.h, a lot of other architectures
also have it included in thread_info.h, so I would leave it there.
