[PATCH][2.4] VIO infrastructure update - review request

The attached patch is a reconstruction of the virtual I/O
infrastructure, along with the proper changes to the Virtual Ethernet
driver... The objective was to clean up the interface, structs, and
functions... Some of the device initialization code was moved to each
virtual driver (sort of what other buses like PCI do), making the
drivers module-friendly and ready for hotplug...

The patch is against the 2.4 bk tree, but I'm planning on moving this up
to 2.6 soon...

Comments, suggestions, and criticism are welcome...
