So we need additionally: 

- #include <linux/sched.h> in include/linux/flex_proportions.h
  and I think un another file as well.

- write_seqcount_t_begin_nested() as a define

- write_seqcount_t_begin() as a define

Any "static inline" in the header file using
lockdep_assert_preemption_disabled() will tro to complain about missing
current-> define. But yes, it will work otherwise.
