There is a rule of (subtly) better maintenance.
If you need to add / remove some header later in a (long) list of unordered
list, it would be error prone.

Just run `make includecheck` and see the result.

I personally fixed some header duplications and removal of init.h in unsorted
lists, which have been missed by some reasons.

Neither does kernel in general.
But kernel is evolving and styles also. When you do such statement consider to
divide by a time period when certain code was pushed to upstream.

Why? It makes a sense to ask for new code (and even for patches against old one in some cases).

How ordering would screw this up?
