parentvcs: hook sysfs devices into object lifetime instead of "binding" (diff)
Driver core: implement uevent suppress in kobject
This patch implements uevent suppress in kobject and removes it from struct device, based on the following ideas: 1,Uevent sending should be one attribute of kobject, so suppressing it in kobject layer is more natural than in device layer. By this way, we can do it for other objects embedded with kobject. 2,It may save several bytes for each instance of struct device.(On my omap3(32bit ARM) based box, can save 8bytes per device object) This patch also introduces dev_set|get_uevent_suppress() helpers to set and query uevent_suppress attribute in case to help kobject as private part of struct device in future. [This version is against the latest driver-core patch set of Greg,please ignore the last version.] Signed-off-by: Ming Lei <tom.leiming@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
