Sorry for late reply.

I can apply this to my kbuild tree shortly, but
it looks like a prerequisite for your
"platform/x86: wmi: use MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE() instead of MODULE_ALIAS()"

If you want all the patches to go through x86 platform-driver tree,
I am fine with that too.

Please let me know what you want.


Best Regards
