Hi Nick and Lorenzo,

I had tested adding __init to both kirin_pcie_probe and
kirin_pcie_add_msi but ran into this warning:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.data+0x68b78): Section mismatch in reference from
the variable kirin_pcie_driver to the function
.init.text:kirin_pcie_probe()
The variable kirin_pcie_driver references
the function __init kirin_pcie_probe()

Doing a quick 'grep -r __init | grep platform_driver' doesn't show any
'static struct platform_driver' constructs marked as __init, leading me
to believe this patch is the proper solution.

I'm happy to hear otherwise, thank you both for the quick responses,
Nathan
