Re: Location of the kernel version number

Aside from a couple of files, nothing in the kernel actually

The solution seems to be to move the kernel version number
into a file of its own. The few places that actually care can
include that new header file.
Ideally, param.h would not include this file at all, certainly
it can't include it unconditionally, as that would defeat the
purpose of moving the thing out.
Yes, I agree with this.
