Subject[GIT PATCH] Driver Core and sysfs stuff for 2.6.16
Here are some driver core and sysfs patches for 2.6.16.  They contain
the following changes:
- EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL_FUTURE() added to the kernel
- mark a few subsystems with this new export
- fix a few sysfs bugs (fixes a few bugs with USB device
removals).
- kref optimization
- semaphore to mutex conversions
- module sysfs files reference counting fixes
- make sysfs a bit more verbous about errors/stupid usages.
- mark where people are using the driver model wrong more
obvious.
- add kobject_add_dir() function
- add binary blob file type helper to debugfs
- remove a few sysfs functions from being exported as no one
except the kobject code should be using it (it is impossible
to use these, so no one has.)
- firmware error path fixes

All of these patches have been in the -mm tree for a number of weeks, if
not months.

Please pull from:
rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-2.6.git/
or if master.kernel.org hasn't synced up yet:
master.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-2.6.git/

Patches will be sent as a follow-on to this message to lkml for people
to see.

thanks,

greg k-h
