    Subject[BK PATCH] Driver Core patches for 2.6.9
    Hi,

    Here are a bunch of driver core 2.6.9. They have all been in the -mm
    tree for a number of weeks. They contain:
    - add /sys/kernel for kernel stuff (like the hotplug sequence
    number).
    - add the kevent code.
    - change the export type of the sysfs and driver core symbols.
    - other good stuff (see below for full list)

    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.

    o export of SEQNUM to userspace (creates /sys/kernel)

    Andrew Morton:
    o ksysfs warning fix
    o kobject_uevent warning fix

    Greg Kroah-Hartman:
    o kevent: add __bitwise kobject_action to help the compiler check for misusages
    o PCI: add "struct module *" to struct pci_driver to show symlink in sysfs for pci drivers
    o USB: add support for symlink from usb and usb-serial driver to its module in sysfs

    o ksysfs: don't build ksysfs if CONFIG_SYSFS is not enabled
    o kobject: adjust hotplug_seqnum increment to keep userspace and kernel agreeing
