Hi Johnatan,
Thank you for the answer, I think you're right.
I use the driver as module and one my colleague as built-in.
With current driver module auto-load doesn't work, but built-in does
auto-probe well.
In patch v1 I added MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(i2c,... and auto-load started to work.
Then in patch v2 I removed the table and switched to probe_new.
I think v2 worked only because I forgot to do depmod after replacing .ko-file.
I will have chance to try it again after 2 weeks.
May be better way for me is to build in the driver, because it seems
strange to add the table
to driver whereas people get rid of this table in other drivers.

Kind regards,
Dmitry
