Subject[RFC PATCH 08/12] drivers: base: introduce bus_remove_device_by_name()
Date
Introduce a helper for detaching a named device from bus and
unregistering it. This is helpful eg. if some board specific driver
needs to remove an unwanted device that had been probed via firmware,
but should be handled differently.
