[PATCH] chardev: GPIO for SCx200 & PC-8736x: whitespace pre-clean
GPIO SUPPORT FOR SCx200 & PC8736x The patch-set reworks the 2.4 vintage scx200_gpio driver for modern 2.6, and refactors GPIO support to reuse it in a new driver for the GPIO on PC-8736x chips. Its handy for the Soekris.com net-4801, which has both chips. These patches have been seen recently on Kernel-Mentors, and then Kernel-Newbies ML, where Jesper Juhl kindly reviewed it. His feedback has been incorporated. Thanks Jesper ! Its also gone to soekris-tech@soekris.com for possible testing by linux folks, I've gotten 1 promise so far. Theyre mostly BSD folk over there, but we'll see.. Device-file & Sysfs The driver preserves the existing device-file interface, including the write/cmd set, but adds v to 'view' the pin-settings & configs by inducing, via gpio_dump(), a dev_info() call. Its a fairly crappy way to get status, but it sticks to the syslog approach, conservatively. Allowing users to voluntarily trigger logging is good, it gives them a familiar way to confirm their app's control & use of the pins, and I've thus reduced the pin-mode-updates from dev_info to dev_dbg. I've recently bolted on a proto sysfs interface for both new drivers. Im not including those patches here; they (the patch + doc-pre-patch) are still quite raw (and unreviewed on KNML), and since they 'invent' a convention for GPIO, a proper vetting is needed. Since this patchset is much bigger than my previous ones, Id like to keep things simpler, and address it 1st, before bolting on more stuff. The driver-split The Geode CPU and the PC-87366 Super-IO chip have GPIO units which share a common pin-architecture (same pin features, with same bits controlling), but with different addressing mechanics and port organizations. The vintage driver expresses the pin capabilities with pin-mode commands [OoPpTt],etc that change the pin configurations, and since the 2 chips share pin-arch, we can reuse the read(), write() commands, once the implementation is suitably adjusted. The patchset adds a vtable: struct nsc_gpio_ops, to abstract the existing gpio operations, then adjusts fileops.write() code to invoke operations via that vtable. Driver specific open()s set private_data to the vtable so its available for use by write(). The vtable gets the gpio_dump() too, since its user-friendly, and (could be construed as) part of the current device-file interface. To support use of dev_dbg() in write() & _dump(), the vtable gets a dev ptr too, set by both scx200 & pc8736x _gpio drivers. heres how the pins are presented in syslog: [ 1890.176223] scx200_gpio.0: io00: 0x0044 TS OD PUE EDGE LO DEBOUNCE [ 1890.287223] scx200_gpio.0: io01: 0x0003 OE PP PUD EDGE LO nsc_gpio.c: new file is new home of several file-ops methods, which are modified to get their vtable from filp->private_data, and use it where needed. scx200_gpio.c: keeps some of its existing gpio routines, but now wires them up via the vtable (they're invoked by nsc_gpio.c:nsc_gpio_write() thru this vtable). A driver-spcific open() initializes filp->private_data with the vtable. Once the split is clean, and the scx200_gpio driver is working, we copy and modify the function and variable names, and rework the access-method bodies for the different addressing scheme.
