Well, at first I just wanted to fix the header dependencies, since timekeeping.h
is using ktime_to_ns(), a static function defined ktime.h, but it does not 
include the header. Then Arnd rightly pointed out this was an opportunity to
perform a bit more housekeeping and consolidation, yes.

All right, I understand I should be following the imperative mood there.

Thanks for the feedback Thomas, I will cross compile with the other archs
to make sure we are not leaving anyone behind and send updated version (v3).
