To be frank, I don't like the idea of reverse christmas tree ordering
myself... Perhaps due to the time I used to program on assembler, 
where alignment issues could happen, I find a way more logic to order
based on complexity and size of the argument...

... So, in this case, the order is already the right one, according
with my own criteria :-)

There was some discussion about the order sometime ago at LKML:


As I'm not seeing the proposed patch there at checkpatch, nor any
comments about xmas tree at coding style, I think that there were no
agreements about the ordering.

So, while there's no consensus about that, let's keep it as-is.
