    Patch in this message
    Subject[PATCH] move s3c241xfb's probe function to .devinit.text
    Pointers to s3c2410fb_probe and s3c2412fb_probe are passed to the core
    via platform_driver_register and so the functions must not disappear
    when the .init sections are discarded. Otherwise (if also having
    HOTPLUG=y) unbinding and binding a device to one of the drivers via
    sysfs will result in an oops as does a device being registered late.

    An alternative to this patch is using platform_driver_probe instead of
    platform_driver_register plus removing the pointer to the probe function
    from the struct platform_driver.
