      [PATCH] EISA bus MODALIAS attributes support · 07563c71
      Michael Tokarev authored
      
      
      Add modalias attribute support for the almost forgotten now EISA bus and
      (at least some) EISA-aware modules.
      
      The modalias entry looks like (for an 3c509 NIC):
      
       eisa:sTCM5093
      
      and the in-module alias like:
      
       eisa:sTCM5093*
      
      The patch moves struct eisa_device_id declaration from include/linux/eisa.h
      to include/linux/mod_devicetable.h (so that the former now #includes the
      latter), adds proper MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(eisa, ...) statements for all
      drivers with EISA IDs I found (some drivers already have that DEVICE_TABLE
      declared), and adds recognision of __mod_eisa_device_table to
      scripts/mod/file2alias.c so that proper modules.alias will be generated.
      
      There's no support for /lib/modules/$kver/modules.eisamap, as it's not used
      by any existing tools, and because with in-kernel modalias mechanism those
      maps are obsolete anyway.
      
      The rationale for this patch is:
      
       a) to make EISA bus to act as other busses with modalias
          support, to unify driver loading
      
       b) to foget about EISA finally - with this patch, kernel
          (who still supports EISA) will be the only one who knows
          how to choose the necessary drivers for this bus ;)

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
