Let me send a final version of these.

I need to add one more patch to the series where I remove an extra
device_remove_properties() call from platform_device_del().

It's unnecessary in any case as device_del() calls
device_remove_properties() for every device, but as the properties are
removed there before the device is removed, we're unable to deduct
the final ref count in the "remove" platform notification since our
node is no longer bind to the device.


Thanks,
