of: use platform_device_add
This allows platform_device_add a chance to call insert_resource on all of the resources from OF. At a minimum this fills in proc/iomem and presumably makes resource tracking and conflict detection work better. However, it has the side effect of moving all OF generated platform devices from /sys/devices to /sys/devices/platform/. It /shouldn't/ break userspace because userspace is not supposed to depend on the full path (because userspace always does what it is supposed to, right?). This may cause breakage if either: 1) any two nodes in a given device tree have overlapping & staggered regions (ie. 0x80..0xbf and 0xa0..0xdf; where one is not contained within the other). In this case one of the devices will fail to register and an exception will be needed in platform_device_add() to complain but not fail. 2) any device calls request_mem_region() on a region larger than specified in the device tree. In this case the device node may be wrong, or the driver is overreaching. In either case I'd like to know about any problems and fix them. Please test. Despite the above, I'm still fairly confident that this patch is in good shape. I'd like to put it into linux-next, but would appreciate some bench testing from others before I do; particularly on PowerPC machines. v2: Remove powerpc special-case Cc: Jason Gunthorpe <jgunthorpe@obsidianresearch.com> Cc: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Cc: Rob Herring <rob.herring@calxeda.com> Cc: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>
