This should be written as:
	if (cookie->error || have_error(cookie->dev))
instead (note the placement of spaces).

Hm, why not just make the thing be a "struct iocookie" in the first
place, then we don't have to mess with a typedef at all.  And then each
arch can define how the structure will look like in their private .c
files, ensuring that no user can ever try to touch the structure
themselves.
