We can even declare these variables at the begining of the function like
in [1]. Also I would advise to rearrange any "fixes" patches at the
begining of the patch series and "cleanup" patches at the end.
e.g. this looks like a fix to me.

That way it is sometimes easier for people to cherry-pick any fixes if
required in their older kernel trees. ;)
