Subject[RFC PATCH 1/2] driver core: introduce module_platform_driver_match_and_probe
Date
From: Rob Herring <rob.herring@calxeda.com>

Introduce a helper to match, create and probe a platform device. This
is for drivers such as cpuidle or cpufreq that typically don't have a
bus device node and need to match on a system-level compatible property.
