Hi Linus,

Here is Milton's patch to fix up the race condition on devicetree
driver matching observed on SPARC, plus a follow up patch to remove
the whole of_match thing entirely, which I've tested on my platforms,
but has not yet been verified by anyone else.

I'll leave it up to you whether to take both commits, or just the
first one.  The second does eventually need to be committed to 2.6.39,
whether by you or in -stable, but it is a much bigger commit and it
hasn't had any testing beyond what I've done here (a handful of
powerpc, sparc, x86, and mips defconfigs, plus boot testing on
powerpc and making sure each driver was compiled in at least one
config).

I've pushed it all out to my git server as show below...
