Subject: [PATCH] Use platform_device_add instead of
	platform_device_register to register device allocated dynamically

I got below warning when running 2.6.19-rc5-mm1 on my ia64 machine.

The root cause is the device struct is initialized twice.

If the device is allocated dynamically by platform_device_alloc,
platform_device_alloc will initialize struct device, then,
platform_device_add should be used to register the device.

The difference between platform_device_register and platform_device_add
is platform_device_register will initiate the device while platform_device_add
won't.

Below patch against 2.6.19-rc5-mm1 fixes it.
