Summary 08378: Parent directory should be added to the driver name in list.xml?
Description Since the driver files have been moved to their respective directories, it may be necessary to add the directory names to the driver names in the list.xml file, such like:

'access/acvirus.cpp',
'acorn/aa310.cpp',
'acorn/accomm.cpp',
'acorn/acrnsys.cpp',
'acorn/acrnsys1.cpp',
'acorn/aristmk5.cpp',
'acorn/atom.cpp',
'acorn/bbc.cpp',
...

There is no guarantee that file names will be unique in the future, the lack of parent directory names will cause inconsistency and inconvenience in various databases and front ends.

Current source add the folder to all source references, even for devices. The implementation of the new folder structure came after the 0.245 freeze for release, so it won't show up in 0.245. We are a few days away from freeze for 0.246 and a week away from release where all this should be handled.

If you have a Git account, you can download an Action binary (compiled artifact from commits) and see for yourself.
