Yeah, this is not very good style, I agree with that. In this case the
amd_iommu_proto.h file got a new inline function which needs the struct

I have merging of the different include files for the AMD IOMMU driver
on my cleanup list. There are currently 3 include files which seems a
bit too much. A single one will do too. Meanwhile I change this patch so
that amd_iommu_proto.h will include amd_iommu_types.h itself. This
doesn't make it nice and clean but at least less ugly meanwhile ;)
