> This patch set aims to convert the current dwmac glue layers into
> proper platform drivers as request by Arnd[1]. These changes start
> from patch 3 and onwards.
> Overview:
> Platform driver functions like probe and remove are exported from
> the stmmac platform and then used in subsequent glue later
> conversions. The conversion involes adding the platform driver
> boiler plate code and adding it to the build system. The last patch
> removes the driver from the stmmac platform code thus making it into
> a library for common platform driver functions.
> The two first patches adds glue layer for my platform. I chose to
> first add old style glue layer and then convert it. The churn this
> creates is just 3 lines.
> I would be very nice if people could test this patch set on their
> respective platform. My testing has been limited to compiling and
> testing on my (LPC18xx) platform. Thanks!
> Next I will look into cleaning up the stmmac platform code.
