SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 0/5] net: provide a devres variant of register_netdev()
From: Bartosz Golaszewski <>
Date: Sat, 23 May 2020 15:27:06 +0200

> From: Bartosz Golaszewski <>
> Using devres helpers allows to shrink the probing code, avoid memory leaks in
> error paths make sure the order in which resources are freed is the exact
> opposite of their allocation. This series proposes to add a devres variant
> of register_netdev() that will only work with net_device structures whose
> memory is also managed.
> First we add the missing documentation entry for the only other networking
> devres helper: devm_alloc_etherdev().
> Next we move devm_alloc_etherdev() into a separate source file.
> We then use a proxy structure in devm_alloc_etherdev() to improve readability.
> Last: we implement devm_register_netdev() and use it in mtk-eth-mac driver.
> v1 -> v2:
> - rebase on top of net-next after driver rename, no functional changes

Series applied, thank you.
