Seems it's really just used for the module loader, while actual probing
is using a different table. IMHO, the worst thing my patch could do is
introducing a warning on unused variable (IMHO shouldn't happen when
it's static const).

I've just rewritten it to move everything into i5k_amb_ids ... just need
to run build tests on it (unfortunately can't run-test, as I don't have
that device).
