Well I guess great minds think alike ;-). After
looking though my SPI core layer I released that it in
no way reflected the new driver model (not surprising
as it was a copy of i2c-core.c) and I would probably
get laughed off the kernel mailing list if I sent it
as was ;-).
I am now writing a new spi-core.c which uses the new
driver model.

For registering an adapter:
1) Register an adapter that has a cs table showing
where devices sit on the adapter.
2) This causes spi-core to enumerate the devices on
the cs table and register them.

For un-registering an adapter:
1) Unregister an adapter
2) This causes spi-core to remove all the children of
the adapter

I have a test adapter and a couple of test devices and
am currently debugging a usage count problem. I will
send a patch once I have a working system.
