I have not started build testing on linux-next since the merge window, but
looking at the changes that got queued up, I find commits cf77d79b4e29
("drm/sun4i: tcon: Add another way for matching mixers with tcon") and
0305189afb32 ("drm/sun4i: tcon: Add support for R40 TCON") that both
introduced a reference to the tcon_top file from sun4i_tcon.c.

the caller like I did in my patch would help, or alternatively one could
decide to give up and just always include the TCON_TOP.
