I don't really care what you do at this point in time, but you all
should know better than the crazy #ifdef is not allowed to try to
prevent/allow the inclusion of a .h file. Checkpatch might have even
warned you about it, right?

So do it correctly, odds are #5 is correct, as that makes it work like
any other device in the kernel. You are not unique here.
