    This patch does not apply cleanly to linux-mips Git tree:

    ----> snip
    patching file arch/x86/kernel/Makefile
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 69.
    1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file arch/x86/kernel/Makefile.rej
    ----> snip

    I believe this is because the linux-mips tree and the -mm tree are not in sync.

    It seems tempting to include at least Alpha in this patch, because they
    have a device initcall identical to the one, which you're removing from
    the MIPS and x86 arch code.
