    Yes. I know you add a new header file which is not included but..

    At reviewing patch, I check whether all required changes are done.
    In this case, you turned out the function to be externed but you
    leave the function definition as 'static'. This unbalance confues me.

    I always read patches from 1 to END. When I found an incomplete change
    in patch 1, I remember it and need to find missng part from patch 2->End.
    This makes my review confused a little.

    In another case, when a patch adds a new file, I check Makefile change.
    Considering dependency, the patch order should be

    [patch 1] Documentaion/Config
    [patch 2] Makefile + add new file.

    But plesse note: This is my thought. Other guys may have other idea.
