PCI/checkpatch: Deprecate DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE
Prefer use of the direct definition of struct pci_device_id instead of indirection via macro DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE. Update the PCI documentation to deprecate DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE. Update checkpatch adding --fix option. Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com> Reviewed-by: Jingoo Han <jg1.han@samsung.com>
