The dynamic banks patch is posted
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121493114604815&w=2
, but it turned out it requires
a sysfs infrastructure change for the auto-generated attributes.
I did that, but the patch is rather large
(http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121493094104469&w=2)

Greg said he would queue the change, so dynamic banks could
be added (replacing Venki's two patches), but it would need
to be submitted after the infrastructure change.
