-What: KVM paravirt mmu host support
-When: January 2011
-Why: The paravirt mmu host support is slower than non-paravirt mmu, both
- on newer and older hardware. It is already not exposed to the guest,
- and kept only for live migration purposes.

-What: Support for driver specific ioctls in the pwc driver (everything

-When: 3.3
-Why: The pwc driver claims to support any resolution between 160x120
- and 640x480, but emulates this by simply drawing a black border

-What: For VIDIOC_S_FREQUENCY the type field must match the device node's type.
- If not, return -EINVAL.
-When: 3.2
-Why: It makes no sense to switch the tuner to radio mode by calling
- VIDIOC_S_FREQUENCY on a video node, or to switch the tuner to tv mode by
- calling VIDIOC_S_FREQUENCY on a radio node. This is the first step of a
- move to more consistent handling of tv and radio tuners.

+What: pci_scan_bus_parented()
+When: 3.5
+Why: The pci_scan_bus_parented() interface creates a new root bus. The
+ bus is created with default resources (ioport_resource and

+ correct them later. Callers of pci_scan_bus_parented() should
+ convert to using pci_scan_root_bus() so they can supply a list of
