Subject[PATCH] missing return value from pci_xircom_fn() in drivers/char/serial.c


I'm using the 2.4.4-ac8 kernel and found that the pci_xircom_fn()
function in drivers/char/serial.c does not return a value even though it
is defined as returning int. I took a look at the other initializer
functions and they all return 0 (zero) on success, so I assumed that the
correct return value for the pci_xircom_fn() function would also be 0. I
don't know anything specific about what goes on in serial.c, so I may be
wrong on this, but I do know that the function should either return some
value or be declared as returning void, and since declaring it void
would mess up the way it is used I guess it should return a value.

I have made a patch against 2.4.4-ac8 that makes the change, it is
below. I guess someone more knowledgeable than me can probably see if
this is correct. If this is completely bogus, then please just disregard
this email.
