    dlm: audit and remove any unnecessary uses of module.h · 7963b8a5

    Historically a lot of these existed because we did not have
    a distinction between what was modular code and what was providing
    support to modules via EXPORT_SYMBOL and friends.  That changed
    when we forked out support for the latter into the export.h file.
    This means we should be able to reduce the usage of module.h
    in code that is obj-y Makefile or bool Kconfig.
    In the case of some code where it is modular, we can extend that to
    also include files that are building basic support functionality but
    not related to loading or registering the final module; such files
    also have no need whatsoever for module.h
    The advantage in removing such instances is that module.h itself
    sources about 15 other headers; adding significantly to what we feed
    cpp, and it can obscure what headers we are effectively using.
    Since module.h might have been the implicit source for init.h
    (for __init) and for export.h (for EXPORT_SYMBOL) we consider each
    instance for the presence of either and replace as needed.
    In the dlm case, we remove module.h from a global header and only
    introduce it in the files where it is explicitly required, since
    there is nothing modular in dlm_internal.h itself.
