Tanzir, I wonder if you could include some of the symbol names used for
some of these more esoteric headers. Let me describe what I mean:

Andy talks about "why <vdso/...>" and perhaps some comments (in your
patch message, not in the source itself) about which symbols are being
used from these headers would serve useful. I believe IWYU can generate
this information and should clear up some confusion or lead to better
suggestions from reviewers if we understand why a header is being
included.

At any rate, this builds for me doing randconfigs on x86_64 with these
KCONFIG_SEEDs
1: 0x3DD9D136
2: 0xB4440EE4
3: 0x98778270
4: 0x8C237F26
5: 0x244F8A64
6: 0x5A5C5E5C
7: 0xA77896BC
8: 0x9B5FF0D5
9: 0x24F23F6A
10: 0x35C0A107

I applied your patch on top of 5db8752c3b81bd33.
