Subject[PATCH 0/6] lib: string: add function strtolower()
Date
This series introduces a new generic function strtolower(), which
converts strings to lowercase in-place, overwriting the original
string. This kind of functionality is needed in several places in the
kernel. Right now, everybody seems to be implementing their own copy of
this function. So, we replace several custom "strtolower"
implementations with this new library function.

Another driver that also makes use of this function will be submitted
upstream shortly, which prompted this whole exercise.

The changes made here have been compile-tested, but not tried out, due
to lack of required hardware.

This series is based on v4.7-rc5.
