Merge tag 'driver-core-3.11-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core
Pull driver core updates from Greg KH: "Here's the big driver core merge for 3.11-rc1 Lots of little things, and larger firmware subsystem updates, all described in the shortlog. Nice thing here is that we finally get rid of CONFIG_HOTPLUG, after 10+ years, thanks to Stephen Rohtwell (it had been always on for a number of kernel releases, now it's just removed)" * tag 'driver-core-3.11-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core: (27 commits) driver core: device.h: fix doc compilation warnings firmware loader: fix another compile warning with PM_SLEEP unset build some drivers only when compile-testing firmware loader: fix compile warning with PM_SLEEP set kobject: sanitize argument for format string sysfs_notify is only possible on file attributes firmware loader: simplify holding module for request_firmware firmware loader: don't export cache_firmware and uncache_firmware drivers/base: Use attribute groups to create sysfs memory files firmware loader: fix compile warning firmware loader: fix build failure with !CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER Documentation: Updated broken link in HOWTO Finally eradicate CONFIG_HOTPLUG driver core: firmware loader: kill FW_ACTION_NOHOTPLUG requests before suspend driver core: firmware loader: don't cache FW_ACTION_NOHOTPLUG firmware Documentation: Tidy up some drivers/base/core.c kerneldoc content. platform_device: use a macro instead of platform_driver_register firmware: move EXPORT_SYMBOL annotations firmware: Avoid deadlock of usermodehelper lock at shutdown dell_rbu: Select CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER explicitly ...

-When you compile with CONFIG_HOTPLUG, you get a new kernel parameter:

+There is a kernel parameter: /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug, which normally
+holds the pathname "/sbin/hotplug". That parameter names a program
+which the kernel may invoke at various times.
The /sbin/hotplug program can be invoked by any subsystem as part of its
reaction to a configuration change, from a thread in that subsystem.
