Subject[PATCH] char/impi: adding __init macro/ fix of __exit macro location in ipmi_poweroff.c
From: Peter Huewe <>

Trivial patch which adds the __init to the module_init function of
drivers/char/ipmi/ipmy_poweroff.c and corrects the location of __exit for the
cleanup function.

According to ldd3, page 31 the __exit token hast to be after the return type.
Or am I getting something wrong here?

Corey, please have a look at the small patch and either pull it through
your tree, or please ack' it so Jiri can pull it through the trivial tree.
