Maybe this should be explained. The file that is included does have
a name ending in .h. But it is not simply declarations, for which
newer trendy languages would use a a statement like ¨import".

"unusual_sddr55.h" is a list of devices. This list is used in
multiple places. And it needs to be identical in all those places.
Hence it is included. These are true includes. There is nothing wrong
with that code.

Our complaint is not that your fix is wrong, but there is nothing wrong
with the code as is. Including this list is the good thing to do.
Your wish to clean up the kernel is appreciated. But please find a
place that actually needs to be cleaned up.

Regards
Oliver
