These coding style cleanups don't belong to this patch (if they belong
anywhere - I don't much see the point)

This change should not be included in this patch. At this point, the old
binding model is still available, and I believe that the change above
will break ivtv, because all the device drivers it needs are still
using the old binding model (they don't define i2c device IDs yet.)

For the rest, there are a number of drivers which are missing:

drivers/gpio/pca953x.c
drivers/gpio/pcf857x.c
drivers/media/video/mt9m001.c
drivers/media/video/mt9v022.c
drivers/media/video/saa717x.c
drivers/media/video/tcm825x.c
drivers/rtc/rtc-s35390a.c

Either you missed them, or they were added after you updated the patch.
Either way, they need to be added. I hope I didn't miss any, it's hard
to make sure as some of them won't build on my development system
(x86-64).

Oh, and Documentation/i2c/writing-clients needs to be updated, too.

I'll add the missing chunks tomorrow, then I'll post an updated patch,
after I'm done with checking the 2nd patch of the set. I might leave
ivtv alone for the time being, as it's a complex one and I don't want
to break it for rc1.
