Honestly this makes things more complicated.

The driver was trying to consolidate all of the header needs
by including them all in one place, the main driver header.

Now you're including headers in several different files.

I really don't like the results of this change and would
ask you to reconsider.

Just add both radix-tree-root.h _and_ radix-tree.h to mlx4.h
and leave the rest of the driver alone.
