Subject[PATCH 1/2] serio: Add helper macro for serio_driver boilerplate
From
Date
This patch introduces the module_serio_driver macro which is a convenience
macro for serio driver modules similar to module_platform_driver. It is
intended to be used by drivers which init/exit section does nothing but
register/unregister the serio driver. By using this macro it is possible
to eliminate a few lines of boilerplate code per serio driver.

Based on work done by Lars-Peter Clausen <lars@metafoo.de> for other
busses (i2c and spi).
