This set of patches applies the macro DECLARE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE to the 
declarations of struct pci_device_id in several network drivers.  The drivers
build cleanly with these patches (without any new warnings) on both x86 and 
PowerPC.

There are ~90 such cleanups in the /drivers/net tree alone (and ~350 in the
kernel overall); these patches are just a subset to avoid flooding the mailing 
list before getting feedback.

These 9 patches can also be pulled from the "net" branch of:

git://www.southpole.se/~jonas/git/linux.git

The remainder of the cleanups will be pushed out to my public tree once I 
know the reaction to this subset.

The diffstat for this subset is:

Why would we want this macro?  It looks slightly ugly at least..

Basically because the alternative would be along the lines of:

static const struct pci_device_id fst_pci_dev_id[] __devinitconst = {

...and this was deemed to be even uglier when I first brought this up a 
while back.

Bah.

a) DECLARE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE is misnamed.  It is used to *define* tables,
   not to declare them.  It should be called DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE.

b) It's lame, anyway.  We could implement any number of such helper
   thingies, but we choose not to.


So I wouldn't go adding code which uses this thing until it has a correct
name, and until we've decided that we actually want to live with it.


Here's the easy part:

I personally think it's noise.

When I originally proposed these cleanups, I posted opened-coded 
versions.  That was deemed to be ugly and using a macro was suggested. 
So now I've reworked this with a macro, and now the macro is being 
deemed to be ugly, too!

The point of this exercise wasn't really to do a macro at all; the point 
was to get these structures marked 'const'  and into __devinitconst 
where they belong.  Whether the open-coded approach or the macro is the 
way to go, is all the same to me; any guidance on how to proceed would 
be appreciated.
