Subject: [PATCH 2/2] Protect pca953x from being unloaded while its GPIOs are in use
Date: Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:10:33 +0100 (CET)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.64.0802081203280.5301@axis700.grange> (raw)

This uses the newly introduced owner field in struct gpio_chip to protect 
pca953x from being unloaded as long as its GPIOs are in use.
