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?
