ok. I see you have also commented this.

Anyway this is kind of old discussion about moving serial drivers to
arch_initcall from module_init.

There is one patch in the tree.

commit 4dd9e742df98f8f600b4302d3adbb087a68237f7

[ARM] 5505/1: serial amba-pl011: move to arch_initcall for earlier
console

Signed-off-by: Alessandro Rubini <rubini@unipv.it>"
Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>


and then there was one patch (also sent to linux-serial but don't have link)
https://patches.linaro.org/patch/14633/

where that discussion wasn't finished.


There is one more patch which does that without real description for
this change.
commit ce87122911f8db59d3c2bc355c694c7a38940804

serial: mps2-uart: make driver explicitly non-modular


Most of drivers are using module_init and only some of them arch_initcall.

Thanks,
Michal
