>From include/linux/init.h :

 * module_init() - driver initialization entry point
 * @x: function to be run at kernel boot time or module insertion
 * module_init() will either be called during do_initcalls (if
 * builtin) or at module insertion time (if a module).  There can only
 * be one per module.
#define module_init(x)  __initcall(x);
