Merge tag 'driver-core-4.9-rc3' of git://

Pull driver core fixes from Greg KH:
 "Here are two small driver core / kernfs fixes for 4.9-rc3.

  One makes the Kconfig entry for DEBUG_TEST_DRIVER_REMOVE a bit more
  explicit that this is a crazy thing to enable for a distro kernel
  (thanks for trying Fedora!), the other resolves an issue with vim
  opening kernfs files (sysfs, configfs, etc.)

  Both have been in linux-next with no reported issues"

Say Y here if you want the Driver core to test driver remove functions
by calling probe, remove, probe. This tests the remove path without
having to unbind the driver or unload the driver module.
If you are unsure about this, say N here.
This option is expected to find errors and may render your system
unusable. You should say N here unless you are explicitly looking to
test this functionality.
