SubjectRe: [PATCH 23/73] sparc: don't use module_init in non-modular pci.c code
From: Paul Gortmaker <>
Date: Tue, 21 Jan 2014 16:22:26 -0500

> The pci.o is built for SPARC64_PCI -- which is bool, and hence
> this code is either present or absent. It will never be modular,
> so using module_init as an alias for __initcall can be somewhat
> misleading.
> Fix this up now, so that we can relocate module_init from
> init.h into module.h in the future. If we don't do this, we'd
> have to add module.h to obviously non-modular code, and that
> would be a worse thing.
> Note that 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 -- it will remain at level 6 in initcall ordering.
