The point is that if you look at almost all of the new-bus drivers in the 
tree, they do not use C99 initializers to initialize their KOBJ class.
Given that, I do not see a reason to make driver(9) document a style that
almost no drivers use.  If we did want to do something different, we
should use the DEFINE_CLASS_0() macro that can be used to declare a KOBJ
