Hi all,

After merging the net-next tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64
allmodconfig) failed like this:

drivers/net/ethernet/qlogic/qlcnic/qlcnic_main.c:1721:1: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'qlcnic_probe'
drivers/net/ethernet/qlogic/qlcnic/qlcnic_main.c:1912:23: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'qlcnic_remove'

Caused by commits 7e2cf4feba05 ("qlcnic: change driver hardware interface
mechanism") and 13159183ec7a ("qlcnic: 83xx base driver") from the
net-next tree interacting with commit 54b956b90360 ("Remove __dev*
markings from init.h") from the drover-core.current tree.

I have added the following merge fix patch for today which could be added
directly to the scsi tree (please).

Subject: [PATCH] qlcnic: remove new __dev* annotations

CONFIG_HOTPLUG is always true now and the __dev* macros have been removed.
