Subject: [PATCHv9 0/3] Add support for velocity network driver on platform devices

v9 changes:
Code tidyup as requested by Francois Romieu.

v8 changes:
Remove velocity_choose_state from via-velocity.h: unused function.

v7 changes:
Forgot to merge a patch to fix an error with the pm ops changes. Apologies Dave.

v6 changes:
Remove more bus specific code from velocity_probe()
Make velocity_(suspend/resume) accept a struct device *
Simplify PM code to use velocity_(suspend/resume) - remove the individual
pci and platform functions.
Add a struct pci_dev variable to velocity_get_pci_info() to reduce churn

v5 changes:
Remove velocity_info union. Change velocity_info->pdev back to struct pci_dev.
Remove more 'if (pci)' sections.
Remove 'void *pdev' function parameters.
Pass correct variable to velocity_choose_state()

v4 changes:
Code tidyup as requested by Francois Romieu
Removed '#ifdef PCI' around PCI code. Compile tested on (!)PCI and (!)PM.

v3 changes:
Rebased against net-next.
Fix errors in pm code.

v2 changes:
Drop patch #1 as requested by David Miller.
Correct the PHYID_ICPLUS_IP101A MII bits - should be ON, rather than OFF.
Read the platform rev_id from the correct register [regs->rev_id]. It's possible
this would work for the PCI version as well and would remove the need for the
'if (pci)' test to set vptr->rev_id.

The first three patches are general tidyup.

[DROPPED] Patch ## just alphabetizes the #includes to make it easier to read.

Patch #1 replaces vptr->dev with vptr->netdev, in preparation of adding a
struct device *dev in Patch #2

Patch #2 replaces the pci dma functions with the generic versions.

I have build tested these patches but don't have a PCI velocity to run-test it.
I can't see that they should introduce any problems as it is all renames and
function swapping.

Patch #3 adds support for the velocity driver on devicetree platform devices.
Binding document included. This patch is compile-tested for PCI, and boot
tested on a VIA APC8750.

I think it would be pertinent to get some tested-by's for PCI users.
