Hmm.  It looks like maybe we could use builtin_platform_driver_probe()?
In most or all of the drivers/pci/host drivers?

If you want to do that, please base your patches on my
pci/demodularize branch, since that's where I would apply them.

I have to say that the plethora of helper macros is getting a little
confusing:

  module_driver
  module_platform_driver
  module_platform_driver_probe
  module_pci_driver
  ...
  builtin_driver
  builtin_platform_driver
  builtin_platform_driver_probe
  builtin_pci_driver
  ...

Actually, seeing the list organized like this makes me feel better,
like there really is some underlying structure here.  It's just hard
to discover in the middle of all the comments and CPP magic.

It is kind of amusing that each one has a big comment header like:

  /* module_platform_driver_probe() - Helper macro for drivers that don't do
   * anything special in module init/exit.  This eliminates a lot of
   * boilerplate.  Each module may only use this macro once, and
   * calling it replaces module_init() and module_exit()
   */

It amuses me that the comments about eliminating boilerplate are
*themselves* boilerplate.  I guess I'm easily amused.
