This patchset adds support for default attribute groups to kobj_type.
Also, the uses of kobj_type's default_attrs field are replaced with
default_groups in the following subsystems:
 - samples
 - block
 - net
 - irq
 - padata
 - cpufreq
 - livepatch

The subsystem maintainers and lists will be copied on the subsystem
patches.

The uses of kobj_type's default_attrs field in the other subsystems will
be replaced in future patchsets.

Changes in v2:
 - Patch 1 is not changed.
 - Patches 2-8 are new.


Kimberly Brown (8):
  kobject: Add support for default attribute groups to kobj_type
  samples/kobject: Replace foo_ktype's default_attrs field with groups
  block: Replace all ktype default_attrs with groups
  net-sysfs: Replace ktype default_attrs field with groups
  irqdesc: Replace irq_kobj_type's default_attrs field with groups
  padata: Replace padata_attr_type default_attrs field with groups
  cpufreq: schedutil: Replace default_attrs field with groups
  livepatch: Replace klp_ktype_patch's default_attrs with groups

Thanks so much for doing this.

As all of the different subsystems depend on the first patch, I'll be
glad to merge them all through my driver-core tree, or apply the first
one and wait a release cycle so that the others can go through the
individual subsystem's tree, depending on what the subsystem maintainer
is comfortable with.

thanks,

Thanks for all of these, now queued up.  Patches to fix up the other
subsystems are always welcome :)
