Generally speaking, platform_device_register_simple() is better than
platform_add_devices(), it does the same thing with fewer source lines
and smaller object code, and it doesn't have the problem of lifetime rules
for statically allocated reference-counted devices.

One day we may want to replace all static platform_device instances with
platform_device_info instead, but right now there are too many of those.

I can change this one to a platform_device for consistency though if you
think it's worth it.
