Subject[PATCH 0/2] i2c-dev: Don't let userspace block adapter
Date
Hi Wolfram/Jean,

I am part of the kernel team for Google's projectara [1], where we are
building a module smart phone.

This series tries to fix one of the problems we hit on our system as we
are required to hotplug pretty much every thing on the phone and so this
fixes hotplug issues with i2c-dev.

As described in the second patch, the current implementation of i2c-dev
file operations doesn't let the modules (hardware attached to the phone)
eject from the phone as the cleanup path for the module hasn't finished
yet (i2c adapter not removed).

We can't let the userspace block the kernel devices forever in such
cases.

I was able to test them on the ARA phone with kernel 3.10 only and not
mainline.
