Subject[BK PATCH] Driver Core fixes for 2.6.0-test3
Hi,

Here's some driver core changes that do the following things:
- remove struct device.name field and fix up remaining
subsystems
- add warnings for programmers who implement driver core code
incorrectly.

Pat has approved these changes.

Please pull from:
bk://kernel.bkbits.net/gregkh/linux/driver-2.6

thanks,

greg k-h

p.s. I'll send these as patches in response to this email to lkml for
those who want to see them.
