    Subject[PATCH] UIO: Change driver name of uio_pdrv
    Hi Greg,
    I'm just about to use the generic UIO platform device driver in a
    project. I noticed the driver registers itself simply as "uio". We
    should choose a more unique name here. The oneliner below goes on top of
    the other UIO patches you've got in your queue right now. This is not in
    mainline yet.

    Thanks,
    Hans

    -------------------------

    The generic UIO platform device driver should be given a unique driver ID and
    not just "uio". This is especially important since Magnus Damm announced a
    similar driver named uio_pdrv_genirq. We should get the names right before
    this hits mainline.
