[PATCH] merge kobject_uevent and kobject_hotplug
The distinction between hotplug and uevent does not make sense these days, netlink events are the default. udev depends entirely on netlink uevents. Only during early boot and in initramfs, /sbin/hotplug is needed. So merge the two functions and provide only one interface without all the options. The netlink layer got a nice generic interface with named slots recently, which is probably a better facility to plug events for subsystem specific events. Also the new poll() interface to /proc/mounts is a nicer way to notify about changes than sending events through the core. The uevents should only be used for driver core related requests to userspace now. Signed-off-by: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
