driver core: synchronize device shutdown
Shaohua Li [Tue, 12 May 2009 20:37:57 +0000 (13:37 -0700)]
A patch series to make .shutdown execute asynchronously.  Some drivers's
shutdown can take a lot of time.  The patches can help save some shutdown
time.  The patches use Arjan's async API.

This patch:

synchronize all tasks submitted by .shutdown
