    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.



    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.
