hwmon: Request the I/O regions in platform drivers
My understanding of the resource management in the Linux 2.6 device driver model is that the devices should declare their resources, and then when a driver attaches to a device, it should request the resources it will be using, so as to mark them busy. This is how the PCI and PNP subsystems work, you can clearly see the two levels of resources (declaration and request) in /proc/ioports for these devices. So I believe that our platform hardware monitoring drivers should follow the same logic. At the moment, we only declare the resources but we do not request them. This patch adds the I/O region request and release calls. Signed-off-by: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org> Acked-by: Juerg Haefliger <juergh@gmail.com>
