    Thanks for the patch, I modified the changelog a bit.

    Greg, do you agree with the patch below?


    From: Magnus Damm <>
    Subject: PM / Driver Core: Kill dev_pm_ops platform warning for now

    Commit 783ea7d4eeefe895f2731fe73ac951e94418927b
    (Driver Core: Rework platform suspend/resume, print warning)
    added a warning message printed for platform drivers that use the
    legacy PM callbacks rather than struct dev_pm_ops. Unfortunately,
    this resulted in some confusion and made some people try to convert
    drivers by replacing the old callbacks with struct dev_pm_ops in
    automatic way, which generally is not a good idea.

    Remove the platform device runtime dev_pm_ops warning for now,
    because it's annoying to users and it's not really necessary right

    [rjw: Modified the changelog to be more informative.]
