parent[PATCH] driver core: replace "hotplug" by "uevent" (diff)
[PATCH] HOTPLUG: always enable the .config option, unless EMBEDDED
With modules, dynamic /dev, and uevents, people really want CONFIG_HOTPLUG to be enabled in their kernels. If not, they can still disable it, but it is discouraged. Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
