I guess I can apply fixup patches that just remove any instances that
turn up ... and you and the tree owner will get copies of those.

So, if Linus takes it, I will cope.

This is what "git grep -E '__dev(init|exit)'" returns for next-20130107:

arch/ia64/kernel/iosapic.c: * __init/__devinit attributes.
drivers/dma/dw_dmac.c:__devinit dw_dma_parse_dt(struct platform_device *pdev)
drivers/media/platform/sh_veu.c:static int __devinit sh_veu_probe(struct platform_device *pdev)
drivers/media/platform/sh_veu.c:static int __devexit sh_veu_remove(struct platform_device *pdev)
drivers/media/platform/sh_veu.c: .remove = __devexit_p(sh_veu_remove),
drivers/net/ethernet/qlogic/qlcnic/qlcnic_main.c:static int __devinit
drivers/net/ethernet/qlogic/qlcnic/qlcnic_main.c:static void __devexit qlcnic_remove(struct pci_dev *pdev)
drivers/power/reset/restart-poweroff.c:static int __devinit restart_poweroff_probe(struct platform_device *pdev)
drivers/power/reset/restart-poweroff.c:static int __devexit restart_poweroff_remove(struct platform_device *pdev)
drivers/power/reset/restart-poweroff.c: .remove = __devexit_p(restart_poweroff_remove),
drivers/regulator/lp8755.c: .remove = __devexit_p(lp8755_remove),
drivers/scsi/ipr.c:static int __devinit ipr_enable_msix(struct ipr_ioa_cfg *ioa_cfg)
drivers/scsi/ipr.c:static int __devinit ipr_enable_msi(struct ipr_ioa_cfg *ioa_cfg)
drivers/scsi/ipr.c:static void __devinit name_msi_vectors(struct ipr_ioa_cfg *ioa_cfg)
drivers/scsi/ipr.c:static int __devinit ipr_request_other_msi_irqs(struct ipr_ioa_cfg *ioa_cfg)
drivers/scsi/ips.c:/* 5.30.00 - use __devexit_p() */
scripts/ -I __initdata,__exitdata,__initconst,__devinitdata \
scripts/ -I __devinitconst,__cpuinitdata,__initdata_memblock \
sound/oss/swarm_cs4297a.c:* 11/10/00 bkz - added __devinit to cs4297a_hw_init()

so there are just a few left.

BTW, I am *not* reporting merge fixes I am doing due to your tree wide
removal of __dev*, but they are still turning up :-(
