I noticed that now the limit is 100 when improves readability, so this
one is good.

Functions and variables which (file scope) are static go to the
beginning of file. Ones visible externally (non static), go after them.

Then just remove it.

Because:
1. The header is included in other files (more than one) so each other
compilation unit will include all these headers, while not all of them
need. This has a performance penalty during preprocessing.

2. You will loose the track which headers are needed, which are not. We
tend to keep it local, which means each compilation unit includes stuff
it needs. This helps removing obsolete includes later.

3. Otherwise you could make one header, including all headers of Linux,
and then include this one header in each of C files. One to rule them
all.

Krzysztof
