    Hi Wim,

    Thanks for the quick response :)

    Both drivers look great. I read over the changes, they look good. I
    also applied them to 2.6.37 and tested them on our machines without
    any problems.

    The cleanups above seem fine to me. What did you mean by "Change
    reboot_notifier by a platform shutdown" though? I see that you
    removed the reboot_notifier, which is fine for our purposes. Was this
    a suggestion to have this stuff get called from platform code if
    needed? Am I missing something?
