driver core: platform_bus: allow runtime override of dev_pm_ops
Currently, the platform_bus allows customization of several of the busses dev_pm_ops methods by using weak symbols so that platform code can override them. The weak-symbol approach is not scalable when wanting to support multiple platforms in a single kernel binary. Instead, provide __init methods for platform code to customize the dev_pm_ops methods at runtime. NOTE: after these dynamic methods are merged, the weak symbols should be removed from drivers/base/platform.c. AFAIK, this will only affect SH and sh-mobile which should be converted to use this runtime approach instead of the weak symbols. After SH & sh-mobile are converted, the weak symobols could be removed. Tested on OMAP3.
