Given there's only a handful of struct links defined across the entire
kernel, I'm going to guess that the definition it's picking up is in
fact the ocxl one.

I think the better solution here is to move struct ocxl_link into
ocxl_internal.h, change ocxl_fn::link to be struct ocxl_link * rather
than void *, and update the function signature for ocxl_link_update_pe()
as well.
