Hi Andy,

Like this (on top of my previous fix - which I assume Andrew will
squash out of existence)?

Subject: [PATCH] kernel.h: split out instrcutions pointer accessors

botton_half.h needs _THIS_IP_ to be standalone, so split that and _RET_IP_
out from kernel.h into the new instruction_pointer.h.  kernel.h directly
needs them, so include it there and replace the include of kernel.h with
this new file in bottom_half.h.

There are, presumably, other places this new file can be included ...
