Gah,

Sorry all, I have no idea why this double sent.

> case of wanting a unique id for some device. Tejun helpfully

> Anyhow, Rusty proposed more or less the first patch here (with a name
> change requested by Tejun applied.)

> The others patches are some of the more obvious looking cases for
> applying this code.  My original reason was for IIO but those patches will
> have to wait a little while for some prior changes to merge.
> For reference, it saves about 40 lines there so I'm happy ;)

> There are a number of other cases in tree that can be cleaned up

> There are a couple of cases in here where I've carefully mangled
> the error codes to keep consistent with the existing code.  Please
> can people who know those subsystems well decide on whether the
> mangling is necessary.

> All comments welcome. I expect I've broken at least one driver
