ltc4215/ltc4245: Discard obsolete detect methods
There is no point in implementing a detect callback for the LTC4215 and LTC4245, as these devices can't be detected. It was there solely to handle "force" module parameters to instantiate devices, but now we have a better sysfs interface that can do the same. So we can get rid of the ugly module parameters and the detect callbacks. This shrinks the binary module sizes by 36% and 46%, respectively. Signed-off-by: Jean Delvare <> Cc: Ira W. Snyder <>
