      drivers/platform/olpc/olpc-ec.c: initialise earlier · 93dbc1b3
      Daniel Drake authored
      Being a low-level component, various drivers (e.g.  olpc-battery) assume
      that it is ok to communicate with the OLPC Embedded Controller during
      probe.  Therefore the OLPC EC driver must be initialised before other
      drivers try to use it.  This was the case until it was recently moved
      out of arch/x86 and restructured around commits ac250415 ("Platform:
      OLPC: turn EC driver into a platform_driver") and 85f90cf6 ("x86:
      OLPC: switch over to using new EC driver on x86").
      
      Use arch_initcall so that olpc-ec is readied earlier, matching the
      previous behaviour.
      
      Fixes a regression introduced in Linux-3.6 where various drivers such as
      olpc-battery and olpc-xo1-sci failed to load due to an inability to
      communicate with the EC.  The user-visible effect was a lack of battery
      monitoring, missing ebook/lid switch input devices, etc.
