I'm not fond of this at all.

Can I get a justification for this change?  On my boards, the CS4270 driver is
compiled in-kernel, not as a module, and so when the kernel boots, the driver
announces itself when it's loaded.  I like this a lot, which is why I always put
a pr_info() in the __init function of my modules.
