This name is too long. You will run into the 80 character limit.

This indenting is off. It should be:

ion_test_dev = platform_device_register_simple("ion-test",
-1, NULL, 0);

or something similar.

People add error messages without thinking about it because they think,
"Obviously, the more error messages the better." Almost all the bad
things that can happen in platform_device_register_simple() generate
their own error message.

Also platform_driver_probe() doesn't have an error message so it's
possible to leave them out if you want. Be bold! Leave out the
message! Or if you want go ahead and leave it in. So long as you have
thought about it is what matters.
