Subject: [ 58/85] USB: rtl8187: remove __devinit* from the struct usb_device_id table

From: Greg KH <>

3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <>

commit a3433179d0822ccfa8e80aa4d1d52843bd2dcc63 upstream.

This structure needs to always stick around, even if CONFIG_HOTPLUG
is disabled, otherwise we can oops when trying to probe a device that
was added after the structure is thrown away.

Thanks to Fengguang Wu and Bjørn Mork for tracking this issue down.
