Hi Greg,

In addition to patches 2-6 I have about two dozen patches across various
subsystems that make use of this. I didn't want to spam everyone with
all of them before you've given an indication about what you think about
this patch.

The diffstat of the conversions I did is this:

That's not too thrilling but in many cases this fixes a potential bug if
a driver fails to register and the code doesn't properly unregister any
previously registered drivers.

Anyway, if you think this is worth merging, how would you like to go
about it? Do you want Acked-bys on all the patches and merge them
through your tree? Perhaps the easiest would be to just merge this patch
and then take the other patches through the maintainer trees after the
core patch has landed?
