Subject: [GIT PATCH] Driver core patches for 2.6.20
Date: Wed, 7 Feb 2007 16:29:08 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070208002908.GA4796@kroah.com> (raw)

Here are a bunch of Driver core, sysfs, and driver model patches for
2.6.20-git

They include the conversion of the network drivers to use 'struct
device' instead of 'struct class' (the patch has been in -mm for over 6
months and was acked by David Miller) some module sysfs additions to
make userspace tools simpler, and lots of cleanups and fixes.  See the
full log below for details.

All of these have been in the -mm tree for quite a while.

Please pull from:
	master.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-2.6.git/

Patches will be sent as a follow-on to this message to lkml for people
to see.

thanks,

greg k-h
