[PATCH 0/6] sysctl: Remove register_sysctl_table from parport

From: Joel Granados
Date: Mon May 15 2023 - 03:14:59 EST

This is part of the general push to deprecate register_sysctl_paths and
register_sysctl_table. Parport driver uses the "CHILD" pointer
in the ctl_table structure to create its directory structure. We move to
the newer register_sysctl call and remove the pointer madness.

I have separated the parport into 5 patches to clarify the different
changes needed for the 3 calls to register_sysctl_paths. I can squash
them together if need be.

We no longer export the register_sysctl_table call as parport was the
last user from outside proc_sysctl.c. Also modified documentation slightly
so register_sysctl_table is no longer mentioned.

I'm waiting on the 0-day tests results.
