Yes, thanks for catching this. I will make changes to rectify this.

The get_logical_address API itself doesn't take completion. Completion is
part of slim_device structure so that the slim_device's driver can wait on
it whenever it needs LA for the first time. (Framework signals completion
on a slim_device when it gets enumerated)
If callback is preferred, I will change it to callback.
