Removing the struct meant 2 more #if guards needed below to initialize
pci_ids, which exceeded my taste.

It seemed cleaner to remove both renesas_usb_fw.mem references rather
than leave one unusable one in reneses_data above. But a simpler patch
is appealing, especially given the number of #if guards needed to remove
reneses_data. Patch V2 will just go with this 1-hunk approach.

Will do.

Will do.
