Figures, I was having a good week and today had to come and crap all over me.
Had some "discussions" and PnP devices, naming and devfs on linux-kernel. Sounds like everyone has come to the conclusion, devfsd (or possibly other daemon) as a device manager is a good idea. Just so you know, I implemented this over 1 week ago :)
More work on my USB devfs patches and devfsd support. So much work, so little time.
Worked on more non-specific Linux ia64 stuff.
Still enthusiastically anticipating this weekend.
