of/i2c: Fix request module by alias
If we are registering an i2c device that has a device tree node like this real-world example: rtc@68 { compatible = "dallas,ds1337"; reg = <0x68>; }; of_i2c_register_devices() will try to load a module called ds1337.ko. There is no such module, so it will fail. If we look in modules.alias we will find entries like these: . . . alias i2c:ds1339 rtc_ds1307 alias i2c:ds1338 rtc_ds1307 alias i2c:ds1337 rtc_ds1307 alias i2c:ds1307 rtc_ds1307 alias i2c:ds1374 rtc_ds1374 . . . The module we want is really called rtc_ds1307.ko. If we request a module called "i2c:ds1337", the userspace module loader will do the right thing (unless it is busybox) and load rtc_ds1307.ko. So we add the I2C_MODULE_PREFIX to the request_module() string. Signed-off-by: David Daney <> Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <>
