Subject[GIT PATCH] more Driver core patches for 2.6.19
Here are some more driver core patches for 2.6.19

They contain:
- minor driver core bugfixes and memory savings
- debugfs bugfixes and inotify support added.
- userspace io driver interface added. This allows the ability
to write userspace drivers for some types of hardware much
easier than before, going through a simple interface to get
accesses to irqs and memory regions. A small kernel portion
is still needed to handle the irq properly, but that is it.
- other minor cleanups and fixes.

All of these patches have been in the -mm tree for a while.

Please pull from:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-2.6.git/
or if master.kernel.org hasn't synced up yet:
master.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-2.6.git/

Patches will be sent as a follow-on to this message to lkml for people
to see.

thanks,

greg k-h
