move there code from <linux/kernel.h>,
and include it in UAPI headers instead of <linux/kernel.h>.

The reason is to avoid indirect <linux/sysinfo.h> include when using
some network headers: <linux/netlink.h> or others -> <linux/kernel.h>
-> <linux/sysinfo.h>.

This indirect include causes on MUSL redefinition of struct sysinfo when
included both <sys/sysinfo.h> and some of UAPI headers:

Changes v1->v2:
* Move kernel.h content into new header in order not break the existing
contract with glibc.

Background: long standing problem: python-psutil [1], iproute2 [2],
even for glibc in the past [3].

Kind regards,
Petr
