I tried removing it a moth or two ago, but gave up.  There was too much
secondary namespace pollution that should be cleaned up first.

These are needed for <sys/ucred.h> too (except <sys/ucred.h> includes
them itself).  The struct mtx in <sys/ucred.h> is one of the main sources
of secondary pollution.  struct ucred insn't inside the _KERNEL ifdef
because a few parts of userland still need it.
