Hi Kirti,

There is a possible issue: mdev_bus_register is called from mdev_init,
a module_init, equal to device_initcall if builtin to vmlinux; however,
the vendor driver, say i915.ko for intel case, have to call
mdev_register_device from its module_init: at that time, mdev_init
is still not called.

Not sure if this issue exists with nvidia.ko. Though in most cases we
are expecting users select mdev as a standalone module, we still won't
break builtin case.


Hi Alex, do you have any suggestion here?
