Seems to be a common theme:

google> grep --color=never "platform.*register" *.c
coreboot_table-acpi.c:	return platform_driver_register(&coreboot_table_acpi_driver);
coreboot_table-of.c:	return platform_driver_register(&coreboot_table_of_driver);

gsmi.c:	gsmi_dev.pdev = platform_device_register_full(&gsmi_dev_info);
gsmi.c:	platform_device_unregister(gsmi_dev.pdev);
gsmi.c:	platform_device_unregister(gsmi_dev.pdev);
[looks good]

memconsole-coreboot.c:	pdev = platform_device_register_simple("memconsole", -1, NULL, 0);
memconsole-coreboot.c:	platform_driver_register(&memconsole_driver);

vpd.c:	pdev = platform_device_register_simple("vpd", -1, NULL, 0);
vpd.c:	platform_driver_register(&vpd_driver);
