> Linux Kernel Mentee: Remove Legacy Power Management.
> 
> The purpose of this patch series is to remove legacy power management callbacks
> from smsc ethernet drivers.
> 
> The callbacks performing suspend() and resume() operations are still calling
> pci_save_state(), pci_set_power_state(), etc. and handling the power management
> themselves, which is not recommended.
> 
> The conversion requires the removal of the those function calls and change the
> callback definition accordingly and make use of dev_pm_ops structure.
> 
> All patches are compile-tested only.
> 
> V2: Kbuild in V1, warning: variable 'err' is used uninitialized whenever 'if'
> conditio is false in funcution .resume() .
