Ideally you should include all headers you have direct users of.
mod_devicetable.h is exactly one and I doubt the pwm.h should include
it, but it's another story.

There are, of course, some cases when not all required because there
is a guarantee that upper one includes lower one. For example, if you
use bitops.h there is no need to include bits.h.
