Ah well, looks like it's just the two of us for the chrdev core patches :)

Anyhow, I found time for a more thorough review.  I'm not 100% convinced on
the model for the chrdev but you know a lot more about this sort of hardware than
I do and it definitely seems reasonable - if anything it might be more flexible
than it needs to be.

I've highlighted a few small things in the patches.  With those fixed I'm happy
to apply the remainder of this series unless someone shouts in the meantime.

There has been plenty of time for review, so fingers crossed that anyone
who hasn't commented, but cares, is happy with how you have done it.

So, lucky v17!  Persistence pays off in the end.

Thanks,

Jonathan
