Hi Greg, Russel, Dmitry.

ALSA is using platform_device_register_simple(). Jean Delvare pointed:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=113398060508534&w=2

out, where _simple looks to be slated for removal. Is this indeed the
case? ALSA isn't using the resources -- doing a manual alloc/add would
not be a problem...
Great, care to convert ALSA to use the proper api so we can remove
platform_device_register_simple()?
Can we mark this deprecated and add it to feature-removal-schedule.txt.

I'm using it about half a dozen times in arch/powerpc and wasn't sure if it was planned on being removed.
