Who ever gave you that advice is wrong. You should always (except in
very rare circumstances) include every header file that your code
references things from. We have over 20 architectures and many, many
possible configurations in the kernel build system and the fact that a
file builds for one is not guarantee that it will build for another
combination if you depend on implicit includes.

See Rule 1 in Documentation/SubmitChecklist.

Which just proves my point.
