I'd say that not as strictly as e.g. netdev does so if e.g. due to 
initialization order it cannot be fully achieved no special trickery is 
required (in contrast to what you'd get from e.g. netdev telling to put
them out of line).

It seems generally useful for declarations, especially when they're as 
many as in the one I picked up above (I think might be due to less eye 
movement required when looking for a particular variable by its name).
