Yeah, just move them all I think. This means that usually the setup
function for a component is at the very bottom, and also that you have the
inverted reading order with first reading leaf/helper functions, then the
bigger ones that assemble things together. Personally I find that
backwards, but otoh consistency is more important. And avoid forward decls
for static functions is standard style in the kernel.
