    include: replace linux/module.h with "struct module" wherever possible · de477254
    Paul Gortmaker authored
    The <linux/module.h> pretty much brings in the kitchen sink along
    with it, so it should be avoided wherever reasonably possible in
    terms of being included from other commonly used <linux/something.h>
    files, as it results in a measureable increase on compile times.
    
    The worst culprit was probably device.h since it is used everywhere.
    This file also had an implicit dependency/usage of mutex.h which was
    masked by module.h, and is also fixed here at the same time.
    
    There are over a dozen other headers that simply declare the
    struct instead of pulling in the whole file, so follow their lead
    and simply make it a few more.
    
    Most of the implicit dependencies on module.h being present by
    these headers pulling it in have been now weeded out, so we can
    finally make this change with hopefully minimal breakage.
