[GIT PATCH] driver core patches for .36

From: Greg KH
Date: Thu Aug 05 2010 - 17:35:48 EST

Here's the big driver core merge for the .36 merge window.

Nothing major here, lot of little things around the driver-core
area. Biggest is the firmware code rework to make things simpler and
the addition of a stable place to mount cgroupfs that everyone has
now agreed on (acked by the cgroup maintainers.)

Full details as to what is included is below in the shortlog.

Please pull from:

All of these patches have been in the linux-next and mm trees.

The patches will be sent as a follow-on to this message to lkml for
people to see.
