Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] mark driver as non-removable
Date: Wed, 21 Dec 2016 16:03:38 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20161221150340.25657-1-alexander.stein@systec-electronic.com> (raw)

Changes in v2;
* Instead of adding a remove function which is unused otherwise, mark the driver
  as non-remoable

Using DEBUG_TEST_DRIVER_REMOVE every driver gets probed, removed and probed
again. This breaks drivers without removal function, e.g. arm perf
resulting in the following dump:

This patchset marks the driver as explicitly non-remoavle preventing this error.
This disables bin/unbind for this driver as well.
