Yay! Thanks a lot Goffredo! I've been waiting for this driver to be
finally converter to the standard device driver model for years,
literally. I'm very happy to finally see this happen :-)

The i2c_driver.attach_adapter method was marked for removal in
September 2011 so we are almost 3 year late on the schedule :-(

Please pick them, they are totally macintosh-specific so they won't
interact with anything I have in my tree. Plus I can't even built-test

This leaves only two drivers still using the old binding model:
macintosh/therm_pm72 and sound/ppc/keywest. Could any of you please
convert these to the standard binding model so that I can finally get
rid of i2c_driver.attach_adapter? That would be wonderful.

Thanks again,
Jean Delvare
