linux-next: build failure after merge of the akpm tree

Hi Andrew,

After merging the akpm tree, linux-next builds (powerpc allmodconfig)
fail like this:

drivers/tty/ehv_bytechan.c:362:1: error: type defaults to 'int' in declaration of 'console_initcall' [-Werror=implicit-int]

Caused by commit 0f01cf96c2d4 ("./Makefile: enable -Werror=implicit-int
and -Werror=strict-prototypes by default") which has bee in linux-next
since Aug 16. This commit exposed that fact that
drivers/tty/ehv_bytechan.c can be built as a module, but has a
console_initcall (which is not available to modules). This was
originally introduced in commit dcd83aaff1c8 ("tty/powerpc: introduce the
ePAPR embedded hypervisor byte channel driver") in v3.2.

Anyone got a good solution?
