SubjectRe: [PATCH 47/58] move sharpsl-pm's probe function to .devinit.text
From
2009/3/28 Uwe Kleine-König <u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de>:
> A pointer to sharpsl_pm_probe is passed to the core via
> platform_driver_register and so the function must not disappear when the
> .init sections are discarded.  Otherwise (if also having HOTPLUG=y)
> unbinding and binding a device to the driver via sysfs will result in an
> oops as does a device being registered late.
>
> An alternative to this patch is using platform_driver_probe instead of
> platform_driver_register plus removing the pointer to the probe function
> from the struct platform_driver.

This one looks OK to me.
