Well that's a PITA.  Can't include ratelimit.h into kernel.h because a)
it'll slow everyone's compiels down and b) ratelimit.h needs spinlock.h
which surely needs kernel.h.  Fixable by adding a new
printk_ratelimit.h and including that from 135 source files, blah.

I'll give up and pronounce that users of printk_ratelimited() need to
include ratelimit.h as well.
