This sort of code, with a repeated struct dereference, generally reads
better using a temporary and is also less prone to typo use.

	struct device *dev = &xlink_dev->pdev->dev;
	struct xlink_buf_mem *lxm = &xlink_dev->local_xlink_mem;

	lxm->dev = init_xlink_reserved_mem_dev(dev, "xlink_local_reserved",
					       LOCAL_XLINK_IPC_BUFFER_IDX);
	if (!lxm->dev)
		return -ENOMEM;

> +	xlink_dev->local_xlink_mem.size = get_xlink_reserved_mem_size(dev,
> +								      LOCAL_XLINK_IPC_BUFFER_IDX);

	lxm->size = get_xlink_reserved_mem_size(dev, LOCAL_XLINK_IPC_BUFFER_IDX);

etc...
