Subject[BK PATCH] Driver Core patches for 2.6.10-rc1

Here are a few minot driver core changes for 2.6.10-rc1 that were laying
around and didn't make it in the last big batch of merges. Most of
these have been in the -mm tree for a while now.

No, they don't include the backing store sysfs patches, I'll get to
those next week. I'll be in the same building as Maneesh, so I know
he'll be hounding me about them... :)

Oh, and these patches will cause the wait_for_sysfs program in udev to
start spiting out a lot more warnings. It's not a bug in the kernel,
it's a userspace issue. I'll get that fixed up in the next udev

Please pull from:


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.
