Subject[PATCH] Hotplug PCI driver for 2.4.6 and 2.4.5-ac24
I've made a patch for the Compaq/Intel Hotplug PCI driver against both
2.4.6 and 2.4.5-ac24 available at:

Here is a list of the things that have been changed since the last patch
I sent out:
- forward ported to 2.4.6
- added entries
- fixed the directory structure to be a bit more sane
- renamed the files to make more sense
- fixed spinlock bugs
- split the Compaq NVRAM portion of the driver to be a compile
time option for those without Compaq servers (will make i64
port a bit easier.)
- cleaned up the symbol namespace. Now plays well with the rest
of the kernel.
- fixed a number of bugs when the driver attempts to be loaded
on a system that does not actually have the Compaq Hotplug PCI
device (no more oopses!)
- got rid of almost all non-Linux specific code. There is one
pci function that needs to be still cleaned up, but it is very
- added MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE support (yes the Hotplug PCI driver
is now /sbin/hotplug compatible :)
- lots of dead code removal.
- cleaned up the function comment style.
- loads of other little changes.

I've tested this patch on both Compaq and Intel hotplug controllers.

There are only a few minor things left to do:
- incorporate native list types where possible.
- add support for other archs (ia64)
- get driver into the kernel tree.

If anyone has any problems or questions about this version, please let
me know.
