Re: [PATCH] firewire: introduce fw_driver.probe and .remove methods

I pushed the branch "fw_driver-api-transition" out to linux1394.git at

git:// fw_driver-api-transition

This branch originates from v3.10-rc5 and contains only the single patch
"firewire: introduce fw_driver.probe and .remove methods".

If you pull this branch, you _can_ move your drivers to the new methods.

Furthermore, the "master" and "for-next" branches at linux1394.git are
now based on "fw_driver-api-transition" and contain patch "firewire:
remove support of fw_driver.driver.probe and .remove methods".

This means that starting from tomorrow, any FireWire driver which goes into
linux-next _must_ implement the new methods.
