2007-07-04Remove the blink driverLinus Torvalds
Yeah, we could have just disabled it, but there's work on a new one that isn't as fundamentally broken, so there really doesn't seem to be any point in keeping it around. The recent timer cleanup broke the only valid use, and when I say "valid", I obviously mean "totally broken". So it's not like it works, or really even can work in the current format that uses the unsafe "panic" LED blinking routines.. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-07-01blink driver power savingStephen Hemminger
The blink driver wakes up every jiffies which wastes power unnecessarily. Using a notifier gives same effect. Also add ability to unload module. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org> [ We should really just delete the whole thing. The blink driver is broken in many other ways too -Linus ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
