I received two identical patches (with a different title) from you. Since there
was no explanation I will discard the first one and work with this one.

You are correct, platform_driver_register() does take care of THIS_MODULE.
Please send another revision where you will do three things:

1) CC the coresight mailing list, as instructed by get_maintainer.pl
1) Also fix the replicator driver.
2) Add a comment that clearly mentions THIS_MODULE doesn't need to be set:

.name = "coresight-static-funnel",
/* THIS_MODULE is taken care of by platform_driver_register() */
.of_match_table = static_funnel_match,
.acpi_match_table = ACPI_PTR(static_funnel_ids),
.pm = &funnel_dev_pm_ops,

Thanks,
Mathieu
