That's not the proper fix. The actual problem here is in clk-mtk.h,
which declares functions which need struct clk_onecell_data without
declaring that structure first. This can be fixed in 2 ways:

1* #Include whatever header file provides the definition of struct
   clk_onecell_data (I think <linux/clk-provider.h>) in clk-mtk.h
   itself.

2* As you only manipulate pointers and not the structure itself, you
   could simply declare that this struct exists, without defining it,
   prior to referencing it in clk-mtk.h. As easy as:

   struct clk_onecell_data;

In this case option 1 seems preferable.

The reason why the problem is only visible in reset.c is because other
source files under drivers/clk/mediatek #include <linux/clk-provider.h>
explicitly before #including clk-mtk.h. But it only works "by
accident". Ideally header files should be self-sufficient, so you don't
depend on #include order.

If the header file is indeed not needed then that's still a good
change, even if it doesn't fix the problem, so:

Reviewed-by: Jean Delvare <jdelvare@...e.de>

However the patch description should be adjusted accordingly.
