Subject[GIT PATCH] Driver Core patches for 2.6.17
Here are some driver core patches and fixes for 2.6.17.  They contain the
following changes:
- documentation update
- add ABI documentation as discussed on lkml
- add ISA driver core framework
- add ability for devices to work like class devices
- let drivers get to tty class device pointer
- add /sys/hypervisor when needed
- some mutex conversions
- some MODALIAS and uevent fixes
- remove some unused exports
- make the dev_printk() messags be a bit more informative when
we do not have a driver attached to a device yet.

All of these patches have been in the -mm tree for a number of months.

Please pull from:
git://git.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
