SubjectRevert 737a3bb9416ce2a7c7a4170852473a4fcc9c67e8 ?

I've had the following funny crashes on PPC machines, with
cataleptic X server as a consequence:

kernel: ---[ end trace ed79daba161e31d9 ]---

As you can see, the processor is trying to execute ASCII strings like
"/usr/lib/libxkb" and has trouble digesting them :-)

The backtrace is actually missing radeon_cp_init_microcode and radeon_do_init_cp
which are inlined inside radeon_cp_init.

The trouble is that radeon_cp_init_microcode calls platform_device_register_simple
which is a simple inline wrapper around platform_device_register_resndata, which
happens to be already freed and overwritten with something looking like a list
of filenames, since I have a non modular kernel.

For now I have locally reverted 737a3bb9416ce2a7c7a4170852473a4fcc9c67e8
which simply added an _init_or_module section attribute to
platform_device_register_resndata, and X is up again...

Now it may be that it is the ioctl that does not have the right to do
this. Actually I thought that the name radeon_cp that is registered there
would appear somwhere under /sys (or /proc) but failed to find it...
