The only header files included by rwsem.h that aren't directly
included in sched.h already are linux/linkage.h and asm/atomic.h.
Since sighand_struct in sched.h has an atomic_t field, sched.h is
clearly including atomic.h somewhere indirectly. And there are mutex
fields in sched.h, which means it's indirectly including
linux/mutex.h, which includes linux/linkage.h. So I think that it's
hard to argue that this change would make the kernel build any more
