Because the rt2x00pci_* functions provided by the rt2x00mmio module has been
renamed in the first patch and those are using the rt2x00mmio_ prefix now. The
rt2x00mmio.h header provides definitions for the old function names but those
definitions are removed by the last patch.

Here is a quote from 1/6:

"The renamed functions are used by several modules,
and updating the names in all of them would result
in a big patch. In order to keep the patch simple,
add compatibility defines for the old function
names. This allows to update the names in each
module separately. After each module is updated,
the defines can be removed."

Should I merge the whole series into a single patch instead?
