That just searches for children of the node. It doesn't walk parent
nodes.

You mean patch 5?

If you say so. But it has plenty of PHY controls packed into those
registers, so are you just recommending handling those bits from the
SATA driver?

Not really, but the debugging info (which you want me to remove by
default, and which is unretrievable after system boot) is the next
easiest solution. It doesn't provide an ABI, exactly, but it keeps the
info readily available.

I haven't done an exhaustive search, but it looks like
__device_release_driver() handles a missing .remove just fine.
