    Subject[-next] staging/vme: various fixes + new driver model for VME
    Date
    Hi Greg,

    This contains first a whole bunch of fixes to the existing vme
    code in staging, to then introduce a new driver model for VME
    in patch 27.

    I have a short list of things to do after this patchset gets
    reviewed:

    - provide a saner API for VME drivers that just want to
    map/unmap chunks of memory (knowing nothing about underlying
    hardware features, such as windows). This is already
    implemented in the out-of-tree driver in [1].

    - Make DMA work on the tsi148 (it's the only bridge I've got).
    This will probably involve changing or extending the
    current API.

    - Test the whole thing with real hardware and a real VME driver
    (currently out of tree as well, see [2]), which I'll try
    to get merged, too--currently we just have vme_user.c which
    really isn't a kosher driver.



    Note that the appended applies on top of linux-next.

    The patchset can be pulled from:
    git://github.com/cota/linux-2.6.git vme-next

    Thanks,

    Emilio
