SubjectDriver needs an owner
From
Wolfram,

Since commit 161d6981096f57("core: platform: add warning if driver has
no owner") I get the following on mx28:

First issue is that we should break the line:

--- a/drivers/base/driver.c
+++ b/drivers/base/driver.c
@@ -152,7 +152,7 @@ int driver_register(struct device_driver *drv)
BUG_ON(!drv->bus->p);

if (!drv->owner)
- printk(KERN_WARNING "Driver '%s' needs an owner", drv->name);
+ printk(KERN_WARNING "Driver '%s' needs an owner\n", drv->name);


Let's take drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-mxs.c: it has the following in the
probe routine
adap->owner = THIS_MODULE;

, and even though we still get:
[ 0.780824] Driver 'mxs-i2c' needs an owner
So what's the correct way to pass the owner?
