Subject[RFC PATCH v4 01/10] driver core: export driver_probe_device()
Date
From: Kim Phillips <kim.phillips@linaro.org>

Needed by drivers, such as the vfio platform driver [1], seeking to
bypass bind_store()'s driver_match_device(), and bind to any device
via a private sysfs bind file.

[1] https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/12/11/522

note: the EXPORT_SYMBOL is needed because vfio-platform can be built
as a module.
