well, I was thinking that instead of having probe for individual
drivers (then we need to modify all the drivers), i was planning like:
when the driver calls parport_device_register(), the driver will be
registered under parport and also a subdevice will be created under the
particular parport the driver wants to use and both will have the same
name. The probe of the bus will verify that name comparison and will
return 0 if the name matches. is this plan ok ?
and i wanted the binding to happen when the driver calls parport_claim()
and for that I was thinking of calling device_attach() . is that also ok?
