SubjectPatch(?): linux-2.4.0-test11-pre4/drivers/sound/yss225.c compile failure

linux-2.4.0-test11-pre4/drivers/sound/yss225.c uses __initdata
but does not include <linux/init.h>, so it could not compile. I have
attached below.

Note that I am a bit uncertain about the correctness of
the __initdata prefix here in the first place. Is yss225 a PCI
device? If so, a kernel that supports PCI hot plugging should
be prepared to support the possibility of a hot pluggable yss225
card being inserted after the module has already been initialized.
Even if no CardBus or CompactPCI version of yss225 hardware exists
yet, it will require less maintenance for PCI drivers to be prepared
for this possibility from the outset (besides, is it possible to have a
hot pluggable PCI bridge card that bridges to a regular PCI bus?).

So, if yss225 is a PCI device, the declaration should use
__devinitdata. On the other hand, if it is ISA only, then __initdata
should be correct.
