SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] drivercore: Fix unregistration path of platform devices
Hi Kevin, Hi Grant, Hi Greg

Although I do not agree with everything exposed by Grant, I understand
his concerns as a Maintainer with future support of the code. Also
there is no point in wasting more energy in discussing than in coding.

So, in order to make everybody life a bit easier I think a good plan here is:

1) revert the whole serie :(
2) apply Grant patch (you can add my Acked-by) and propose his
inclusion for back-porting in 4.0
3) I post a patch series with the cleanout missing in his patch. Not
needed to be backported, but nice it is merged soon, since it has been
already reviewed by Bjorn and Rob.
4) I post a patch series with the resource flag and "Use
platform_device interface". And we can disscuss if this is good
sollution or not

Could be nice to be able to test the code on 4) on the "broken platforms".

Do we all agree on this plan?

Thanks and Kevin sorry for wasting your time.
