NAME

       transport_remove_device - remove the visibility of a device

SYNOPSIS

       void transport_remove_device  (struct device * dev);

ARGUMENTS

       dev    generic device to remove

DESCRIPTION

       This  call  removes  the  visibility  of  the  device (to the user from
       sysfs), but does not destroy it. To eliminate  a  device  entirely  you
       must also call transport_destroy_device. If you don’t need to do remove
       and destroy as  separate  operations,  use  transport_unregister_device
       (see transport_class.h) which will perform both calls for you.
