Subject[GIT PATCH] driver core patches for 2.6.31-rc2
Here are a few driver-core patches for your 2.6.31-rc2 tree.

The biggest patch here is the addition of the early platform driver api.
This patch has been in the -mm tree for a few major kernel releases now
(around 5 months), and there are a number of drivers pending in some of
the arch trees that depend on this api being present. It doesn't affect
any x86 code, so the majority of the world will have no problems with
this, and it all gets thrown away after init starts up, so it has no
affect on memory sizes.

Other than that, it's just a few bugfixes and tweaks.

Please pull from:

All of these patches have been in the linux-next and mm trees for a

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