Dear team,

I have seen a new module "driver-index" got introduced. What is the purpose of this?

Hi Geevarghese,

The driver index is a new component which will perform the role of enumerating available drivers and performing bind program evaluation to decide what drivers should bind to spawned devices - currently these operations are performed by the driver manager. This is part of an ongoing re architecture to make driver manager into a component runner for drivers, and splitting out duties which don't make sense for a runner to implement.

Yes, that is the plan.

So in future, will individual drivers become a component?
