Can the prototype be in the architecture header if they want to call the function?
Like the following? arch_report_meminfo() is used in fs/proc/... as well.

$ find . -name *.h | xargs grep arch_report_meminfo
./arch/s390/include/asm/pgtable.h:void arch_report_meminfo(struct seq_file *m);
./arch/x86/include/asm/pgtable_types.h:extern void arch_report_meminfo(struct seq_file *m);
./arch/parisc/include/asm/pgtable.h:extern void arch_report_meminfo(struct seq_file *m);

Thanks,
-Aubrey
