I have done something similar, but that avoids exporting resource ops
into the header file. I am still not satisfied with it though - I'd
rather have one init function per resource file that changes the
pointer of the ops table from NULL to its own set of functions. That
way the core could live without knowing anything about the different
resources, and that would be nicer. Unfortunately modules only support
one init function, so this is not doable here.

That totally makes sense - thanks for the precision.

Prepping another patchset with audience extended to linux-arm-kernel
as Mark suggested.
