Right. It is not bugfix. Just This patch is related to patch[1]
which was merged to v5.6-rc1.
[1] commit tb7365587f513 ("extcon: Remove unneeded extern keyword
from extcon.h")

If you think that it is not needed to be merged for v5.6-rc3,
I think that it is better to apply it to extcon-next branch
for v5.7-rc1.
