i2c: move i2c_omap's probe function to .devinit.text
Uwe Kleine-König [Thu, 4 Feb 2010 19:56:53 +0000 (20:56 +0100)]
A pointer to omap_i2c_probe is passed to the core via
platform_driver_register and so the function must not disappear when the
.init sections are discarded.  Otherwise (if also having HOTPLUG=y)
unbinding and binding a device to the driver via sysfs will result in an
oops as does a device being registered late.

An alternative to this patch is using platform_driver_probe instead of
platform_driver_register plus removing the pointer to the probe function
from the struct platform_driver.
