    Subject[089/107] drivers/base/platform.c: dont mark platform_device_register_resndata() as __init_or_module
    2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Andrew Morton <>

    commit bb2b43fefab723f4a0760146e7bed59d41a50e53 upstream.

    This reverts 737a3bb9416ce2a7c7a4 ("Driver core: move platform device
    creation helpers to .init.text (if MODULE=n)"). That patch assumed that
    platform_device_register_resndata() is only ever called from __init code
    but that isn't true in the case ioctl->drm_ioctl->radeon_cp_init().
