2008-06-20Add a bunch of cycle_kernel_lock() callsJonathan Corbet
All of the open() functions which don't need the BKL on their face may still depend on its acquisition to serialize opens against driver initialization. So make those functions acquire then release the BKL to be on the safe side. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
2008-06-20Add "no BKL needed" comments to several driversJonathan Corbet
This documents the fact that somebody looked at the relevant open() functions and concluded that, due to their trivial nature, no locking was needed. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>

2006-07-14[PATCH] gpio: rename exported vtables to better match purposeJim Cromie
- rename EXPORTed gpio vtables from {scx200,pc8736x}_access to _gpio_ops new name is much closer to the vtable-name struct nsc_gpio_ops, should be clearer. Also rename the _fops vtable var to _fileops to better disambiguate it from the gpio vtable.

enough drops gpio_set_high, gpio_set_low from the nsc_gpio_ops vtable. While we can't drop them from scx200_gpio (or can we?), we dont need them for new users of the exported vtable; gpio_set(1), gpio_set(0) work fine.

2006-07-14[PATCH] scx200_gpio: use 1 cdev for N minors, not N for NJim Cromie
Remove the scx200_gpio's cdev-array & ksalloc, replacing it with a single static struct cdev, which is sufficient for all the pins. cdev_put is commented out since kernel wont link properly with it, and its apparently not needed. With these patches, this driver continues to work with Chris Boot's leds_48xx driver.

2006-07-14[PATCH] scx200_gpio: 1 cdev for N minors: cleanup, prepJim Cromie
this patch is mostly cleanup of scx200_gpio : - drop #include <linux/config.h> - s/DEVNAME/DRVNAME/ apparently a convention - replace variable num_pins with #define MAX_PINS - s/dev/devid/ to clarify that its a dev_t, not a struct device dev. - move devid = MKDEV(major,0) into branch where its needed. 2 minor 'changes' : - reduced MAX_PINS from 64 to 32. Ive never tested other pins, and theyre all multiplexed with other functions, some of which may be in use on my soekris 4801, so I dont know what testing should yield. - +EXPORT_SYMBOL(scx200_access); This exposes the driver's vtable, which another driver can use along with #include <linux/nsc_gpio.h>, to manipulate a gpio-pin.

2006-07-03[PATCH] make more file_operation structs staticArjan van de Ven
Mark the static struct file_operations in drivers/char as const. Making them const prevents accidental bugs, and moves them to the .rodata section so that they no longer do any false sharing; in addition with the proper debug option they are then protected against corruption..

2006-06-27[PATCH] chardev: GPIO for SCx200 & PC-8736x: use dev_dbg in common moduleJim Cromie
Use of dev_dbg() and friends is considered good practice. dev_dbg() needs a struct device *devp, but nsc_gpio is only a helper module, so it doesnt have/need its own. To provide devp to the user-modules (scx200 & pc8736x _gpio), we add it to the vtable, and set it during init. Also squeeze nsc_gpio_dump()'s format a little.

2006-06-27[PATCH] chardev: GPIO for SCx200 & PC-8736x: migrate file-ops to common moduleJim Cromie
Now that the read(), write() file-ops are dispatching gpio-ops via the vtable, they are generic, and can be moved 'verbatim' to the nsc_gpio common-support module. After the move, various symbols are renamed to update 'scx200_' to 'nsc_', and headers are adjusted accordingly.

Add a new driver command: 'v' which calls gpio_dump() on the pin. The output goes to the log, like all other INFO messages in the original driver. Giving the user control over the feedback they 'need' is construed to be a user-friendly feature, and allows us (later) to dial down many INFO messages to DEBUG log-level.

dev_dbg Add a platform-device to scx200_gpio, and use its struct device dev member (ie: devp) in dev_dbg() once. There are 2 alternatives here (Im soliciting guidance/commentary): - use isa_device, if/when its added to the kernel. - alter scx200.c to EXPORT_GPL its private devp so that both scx200_gpio, and the (to be added) nsc_gpio module can use it. Since the available devp is in 'grandparent', this seems like too much 'action at a distance'.

2006-06-27[PATCH] chardev: GPIO for SCx200 & PC-8736x: whitespace pre-cleanJim Cromie
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.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
