    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.
