unregister_netdev - remove device from the kernel SYNOPSIS
void unregister_netdev(struct net_device * dev); ARGUMENTS
dev device DESCRIPTION
This function shuts down a device interface and removes it from the kernel tables. This is just a wrapper for unregister_netdevice that takes the rtnl semaphore. In general you want to use this and not unregister_netdevice. COPYRIGHT

device_create_with_groups - creates a device and registers it with sysfs SYNOPSIS
struct device * device_create_with_groups(struct class * class, struct device * parent, dev_t devt, void * drvdata, const struct attribute_group ** groups, const char * fmt, ...); ARGUMENTS
class pointer to the struct class that this device should be registered to parent pointer to the parent struct device of this new device, if any devt the dev_t for the char device to be added drvdata the data to be added to the device for callbacks groups NULL-terminated list of attribute groups to be created fmt string for the device's name ... variable arguments DESCRIPTION
This function can be used by char device classes. A struct device will be created in sysfs, registered to the specified class. Additional attributes specified in the groups parameter will also be created automatically. A "dev" file will be created, showing the dev_t for the device, if the dev_t is not 0,0. If a pointer to a parent struct device is passed in, the newly created struct device will be a child of that device in sysfs. The pointer to the struct device will be returned from the call. Any further sysfs files that might be required can be created using this pointer. Returns struct device pointer on success, or ERR_PTR on error. NOTE
the struct class passed to this function must have previously been created with a call to class_create. COPYRIGHT
