There is however a pretty large problem which now needs to be fixed,
and it goes by the name of "power management".

There is a hell of a lot of work which now needs to be done to re-fix
everything which was working. For example, there is no sign of any
power management for platform devices currently. Could you give some
clues as to what you'd like to see there?

There's also a fair number of drivers to update to this new power
management model - eg, ARM device drivers, PCMCIA socket drivers to
name just two.

We also need to fix the device model probing so we can have a generic
PCI bridge driver but override it if we have a more specific driver.

I did ask to see the code and make preparations for this type of
change... Since the driver model and power management is fundamental
to many subsystems, I think it would be a good thing to have at least
a few days for review of the changes on lkml.
