using these calls except with such hotplug-deficient drivers.

struct platform_device *platform_device_alloc(
- char *name, unsigned id);
+ const char *name, int id);

You can use platform_device_alloc() to dynamically allocate a device, which
you will then initialize with resources and platform_device_register().
A better solution is usually:

struct platform_device *platform_device_register_simple(
- char *name, unsigned id,
- struct resource *res, unsigned nres);
+ const char *name, int id,
+ struct resource *res, unsigned int nres);

You can use platform_device_register_simple() as a one-step call to allocate
and register a device.
