Subject: [PATCH v4 00/13] Add ACPI _DSD and unified device properties support

Hi Everyone,

This is version 4 of the unified device properties interface patchset.

The original cover letter from Mika is here:

My cover letter for version 3 is here:

One major change from the previous iteration is that now we will
use the "compatible" property to match drivers to devices having
"PRP0001" as their _HID, so for example the at25 driver doesn't
have to add the extra ACPI match table as part of the conversion
to the unified interface (patch [05/13] in this series).

The second major change is that I've split the driver core patch
in two, where the first one ([02/13]) does not contain any stuff
related to iterating over the child nodes of a given device.
Accordingly, the whole patch series has been rearranged so that
the relatively non-controversial patches [01-09/13], most of which
have been ACKed already, go first and then goes the second driver
core patch ([10/13]) and the other patches related to it.

In patches [10-13/13] I used the Arnd's suggestion to implement
device_for_each_child_node() as a macro which makes the changes
in patches [12-13/13] look more straightforward among other things.

I've retained the Greg's ACKs on patches [02/13] and [10/13], because
the first of them is things ACKed by Greg only and the change in the
second one is just an implementation detail in my opinion (Greg, please
let me know if that's inappropriate).


I speak only for myself.
