Expected is to get rid of kernel.h completely.
For instance, in arch/arm/include/asm/word-at-a-time.h case this
should become:

#include <linux/bitops.h>
#include <linux/wordpart.h>

(Briefly looking the same is for include/asm-generic/word-at-a-time.h)

And so on...

Okay, we don't back include because we changing all the users at once.

Can be on a single line.

Is it? Personally I skip this from the split headers, but I'm not your lawyer.
