    [PATCH] PCI: automatically set device_driver.owner · 863b18f4
    Laurent riffard authored
    
    
    A nice feature of sysfs is that it can create the symlink from the
    driver to the module that is contained in it.
    
    It requires that the device_driver.owner is set, what is not the
    case for many PCI drivers.
    
    This patch allows pci_register_driver to set automatically the
    device_driver.owner for any PCI driver.
    
    Credits to Al Viro who suggested the method.
