[PATCH 4.18 054/197] x86/mce: Add notifier_block forward declaration

4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 704ae091b061082b37a9968621af4c290c641d50 ]

Without linux/irq.h, there is no declaration of notifier_block, leading to
a build warning:

In file included from arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/threshold.c:10:
arch/x86/include/asm/mce.h:151:46: error: 'struct notifier_block' declared inside parameter list will not be visible outside of this definition or declaration [-Werror]

It's sufficient to declare the struct tag here, which avoids pulling in
more header files.
