Looks like a nasty problem. If we can't include <linux/config.h>,
there is no guarantee that the header contents will be correct. We
can obviously move the definition of HZ into the (existing)
__KERNEL__-only section, but then apps which rely on the HZ macro
won't compile anymore. Perhaps that's OK (they probably should use
sysconf() anyhow), though.
