Subject: [net-next 02/14] i40evf: don't violate scope

From: Mitch Williams <>

Move a declaration up one level so we don't dereference it out of scope.
This didn't cause any panics, but the details->async field would
mysteriously disappear, causing unnecessary delays when sending AQ
commands. Also, the code is just plain wrong.
