[IOC3] Fix section missmatch

WARNING: drivers/net/built-in.o(.text+0x3468): Section mismatch in reference fro
m the function ioc3_probe() to the function .devinit.text:ioc3_serial_probe()
The function ioc3_probe() references
the function __devinit ioc3_serial_probe().
This is often because ioc3_probe lacks a __devinit 
annotation or the annotation of ioc3_serial_probe is wrong.

Resend, this time with Jeff's address corrected.
