^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Correction: it's actually a probe function with __devinit, which on most
setups (with CONFIG_HOTPLUG=y) can be called any time, but then on those
setups the __devinit does not cause the section to be freed.
Nevertheless, naming the variable puv3_rtc_driver is the correct solution.
