[GIT PULL] Ambient Light Sensors subsystem



Dear Linus,

Please pull from

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jic23/als.git for-linus

to get the Ambient Light Sensors subsystem.
A large part of the following consists of moving two drivers from
elsewhere in the kernel to als now it is available.

acpi-als will merge later through the acpi tree as it sits entirely
within their directories. Both moves have been confirmed with the
respective maintainers and all known users of the drivers.

All changes as per linux-next branch where they have been for some weeks.

Thanks,

Jonathan

als: add unique device-ids to the als device class

Jonathan Cameron (5):
ALS: Add jic23 and als git tree to MAINTAINERS
tsl2550: Move form i2c/chips to als and update interfaces. Remove i2c/chips in this commit to avoid build failure that results from separating that step out.
als: tsl2550: Remove spurious check against a maximum lux value.
Merge remote branch 'linus/master' into for-next
isl29003: Move from misc to als now it is available with minimal changes

Zhang Rui (1):
introduce ALS sysfs class
