Please just delete this variable, it really is never
used not matter what the build configuration.

Please don't test feature availability this way.

Either use the proper CONFIG_* option ifdef.

Or if this is some feature which is not merged yet, remove
this code and add it back once that necessary feature is
added upstream.

Please use alloc_etherdev() how is was designed, by
specifying sizeof(struct efx_nic) as the size argument
and that way your private area gets setup transparently
and none of these explicit assignments are necessary.

Like the other case, remove this truly unused
"flags" thing.

If you are doing this because some macro references
this local variable without an explicit reference in
the code or the calls to it, you need to fix that.

Otherwise the rest of this part looks OK.
