Subject: [RFC] PCI: remove the "shadow" device list
Date: Thu, 14 Feb 2008 16:39:09 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080215003909.GA27981@kroah.com> (raw)

Here are a series of 12 patches that I've added to my quilt tree for
2.6.26 that delete the "shadow" PCI device tree.  There is no real need
to keep two lists of all PCI devices in the kernel, the driver core
should be able to properly handle all of this.

We do keep the bus list of devices, as that is still useful for a lot of
things, and I don't see any obviously easy way to clean that up at the
moment.

Overall, the patch ends up deleting a lot of code, which is always a
good thing.

Comments are appreciated.

thanks,

greg k-h
