Re: [PATCH 1/5] drivercore: Generalize module_platform_driver

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I didn't find this patch either in "next" or in Greg's "driver-core" 
trees, so, couldn't generate a patch and had to comment here:

Shall we maybe remove the trailing semicolon above?
