With the patch applied I see this:

CC kernel/bounds.s
In file included from /home/space/kas/git/public/linux-next/include/linux/page-flags.h:10:0,
from /home/space/kas/git/public/linux-next/kernel/bounds.c:9:

/home/space/kas/git/public/linux-next/include/linux/mmdebug.h:5:30: warning: its scope is only this definition or declaration, which is probably not what you want [enabled by default]

We need to declare struct page here as well.
