I haven't seen that submission, I just looked at the current
state in linux-next. If we want this to be a separately loadable
module, that seems fine too, but then we should fix the Makefile
to do that, and add the necessary Kconfig magic to ensure that
INFINIBAND_QED cannot be built-in when INFINIBAND_QEDR=m.

Mainly for consistency: we have a couple of interfaces that
are called from the qed driver that are implemented in
qed_roce.c. We can either use a 'static inline' helper for
all of them, or use if(IS_ENABLED()) everywhere. Since this
was the only function that had a helper and that helper
was defined incorrectly, I went with the second option.

No, it's purely cosmetic. Moving the comment inside of the if()
block seems fine, I just didn't want to touch that as it was
unrelated.

That would add even more #ifdefs though.
