Subject[PATCH 0/3] VME driver fixes
Hi Martyn,

These three patches fix the issues raised by you in the discussion
regarding the removal of the VME driver from the staging tree.

* staging: vme: fix comment in __vme_register_driver()

This patch fixes the comment which doesn't apply as we didn't add the
bridge reference counting functions patch.

The code is still safe as vme_buses_lock is held when registering devices
(and vme_unregister_bridge needs to acquire it in order to remove the
bridge). The only different I can see is that the probe() calls will go
through entirely in this case before remove() is immediately called on
them (whereas with the vme_bridge_get(), a probe in the middle could fail
and we could quickly unregister the bridge).

* staging: vme: remove vme_add_bus() and vme_remove_bus()

These have been renamed to vme_register/unregister_bridge respectively.

Please let me know if you feel any other changes need to be made. Thanks
and best regards.
