Subject: [PATCH 0/1] Replace DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE macro use

We should prefer `const struct pci_device_id` over
`DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE` to meet kernel coding style guidelines.
This issue was reported by checkpatch.

A simplified version of the semantic patch that makes this change is as
follows (

// <smpl>

identifier i;
initializer z;

+ const struct pci_device_id i[]
= z;

// </smpl>

I previously sent parts of this patch to check wether or not it was
worth sending, and Bjorn answered:

So here it is, based on linux-next on 2014-08-07.
