Hi Martin,

This patch series prepares for constifying SCSI host templates by moving the
members that are not constant out of the SCSI host template. This patch series
is based on Linus' master branch instead of the SCSI for-next branch. Please
consider this patch series for the next merge window.

Thanks,

Bart.

Changes compared to v4:
- Added three additional patches: fail host creation if creating the proc
  directory fails, a use-after-free fix and an improvement for the kernel
  module unload code.

Changes compared to v3:
- Changed the 'present' counter from 8 to 32 bits.
- Fixed a bug in an error path (reported by John Garry).
- Changed EXPORT_SYMBOL() into EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL().
- Split patch 1/3 into two patches.

Changes compared to v2:
- Optimized the show_info == NULL case.
- Added a patch that removes the code that clears the module pointer in the host
  template.

Changes compared to v1:
- Fix the CONFIG_SCSI_PROC_FS=n build.

  scsi: esas2r: Initialize two host template members implicitly
  scsi: esas2r: Introduce scsi_template_proc_dir()
