Subject: [PATCH] pcmcia: sharpsl: don't discard sharpsl_pcmcia_ops

commit fdc858a466b738d35d3492bc7cf77b1dac98bf7c upstream.

The sharpsl_pcmcia_ops structure gets passed into
sa11xx_drv_pcmcia_probe, where it gets accessed at run-time,
unlike all other pcmcia drivers that pass their structures
into platform_device_add_data, which makes a copy.

This means the gcc warning is valid and the structure
must not be marked as __initdata.

Without this patch, building collie_defconfig results in:

drivers/pcmcia/pxa2xx_sharpsl.c:22:31: fatal error: mach-pxa/hardware.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[3]: *** [drivers/pcmcia/pxa2xx_sharpsl.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/pcmcia] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers] Error 2
make: *** [sub-make] Error 2
