[PATCH 29/73] drivers/platform: don't use modular register in non-modular pdev_bus.c

From: Paul Gortmaker
Date: Tue Jan 21 2014 - 16:42:06 EST

This driver is configured with a Kconfig option that is
declared as a bool. Hence it is not possible for the code
to be built as modular. However the code is currently using
the module_platform_driver() macro for driver registration.

While this currently works, we really don't want to be including
the module.h header in non-modular code, which we'll be forced
to do, pending some upcoming code relocation from init.h into
module.h. So we fix it now by using the non-modular equivalent.

With some macro detangulation, and a little help from cpp, we can
see that module_platform_driver(goldfish_pdev_bus_driver) gets
roughly translated into:

static int __init goldfish_pdev_bus_driver_init(void)
return platform_driver_register(&goldfish_pdev_bus_driver);

static void __exit goldfish_pdev_bus_driver_exit(void)

And since we've already established that the code is non-modular,
we can completely drop any code relating to module_exit. For non
modular code, module_init beomes __initcall. But direct use of
__initcall is discouraged, vs. one of the priority categorized
subgroups. As __initcall gets mapped onto device_initcall, our
use of device_initcall directly in this change means that the
runtime impact is zero -- they will remain at level 6 in the
initcall ordering.
