struct device is declared at 133rd line.
The declaration here is unnecessary. Remove it.

What is the coding style preference for pre-declarations like this?  Should
they be placed at the top of the file?

The patch is reasonable but if the intent is to declare right before use for
clarity, both devm_nvdimm_memremap() and nd_blk_region_desc() use struct
device.  So perhaps this duplicate is on purpose?

OK, my script just catch this duplicate.
And I will report the duplicate if there is no MACRO dependence.
But I hadn't thought of whether the duplicate is a prompt on purpose.
Sorry.

Thanks for your reply.

There are other struct device usage much later in the file, which doesn't have
any pre-declarations for struct device. So I assume this might not be on
purpose :-)

On a side note, types.h can also be removed, since it's already included in
kernel.h.

Yeah, I believe it was just code movement and the duplicate was
inadvertently introduced. Patch looks ok to me.

That I don't necessarily agree with, it just makes future header
reworks more fraught for not much benefit.
