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.
