      of/gpio: add default of_xlate function if device has a node pointer · 391c970c
      Anton Vorontsov authored
      Implement generic OF gpio hooks and thus make device-enabled GPIO chips
      (i.e.  the ones that have gpio_chip->dev specified) automatically attach
      to the OpenFirmware subsystem.  Which means that now we can handle I2C and
      SPI GPIO chips almost* transparently.
      * "Almost" because some chips still require platform data, and for these
        chips OF-glue is still needed, though with this change the glue will
        be much smaller.

      of/gpio: stop using device_node data pointer to find gpio_chip · 594fa265
      Grant Likely authored
      Currently the kernel uses the struct device_node.data pointer to resolve
      a struct gpio_chip pointer from a device tree node.  However, the .data
      member doesn't provide any type checking and there aren't any rules
      enforced on what it should be used for.  There's no guarantee that the
      data stored in it actually points to an gpio_chip pointer.
      Instead of relying on the .data pointer, this patch modifies the code
      to add a lookup function which scans through the registered gpio_chips
      and returns the gpio_chip that has a pointer to the specified

      sysfs: Implement sysfs tagged directory support. · 3ff195b0
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      The problem.  When implementing a network namespace I need to be able
      to have multiple network devices with the same name.  Currently this
      is a problem for /sys/class/net/*, /sys/devices/virtual/net/*, and
      potentially a few other directories of the form /sys/ ... /net/*.
      What this patch does is to add an additional tag field to the
      sysfs dirent structure.  For directories that should show different
      contents depending on the context such as /sys/class/net/, and
      /sys/devices/virtual/net/ this tag field is used to specify the
      context in which those directories should be visible.  Effectively
      this is the same as creating multiple distinct directories with
      the same name but internally to sysfs the result is nicer.
      I am calling the concept of a single directory that looks like multiple
      directories all at the same path in the filesystem tagged directories.
      For the networking namespace the set of directories whose contents I need
      to filter with tags can depend on the presence or absence of hotplug
      hardware or which modules are currently loaded.  Which means I need
      a simple race free way to setup those directories as tagged.
      To achieve a reace free design all tagged directories are created
      and managed by sysfs itself.
      Users of this interface:
      - define a type in the sysfs_tag_type enumeration.
      - call sysfs_register_ns_types with the type and it's operations
      - sysfs_exit_ns when an individual tag is no longer valid
      - Implement mount_ns() which returns the ns of the calling process
        so we can attach it to a sysfs superblock.
      - Implement ktype.namespace() which returns the ns of a syfs kobject.
      Everything else is left up to sysfs and the driver layer.
      For the network namespace mount_ns and namespace() are essentially
      one line functions, and look to remain that.
      Tags are currently represented a const void * pointers as that is
      both generic, prevides enough information for equality comparisons,
      and is trivial to create for current users, as it is just the
      existing namespace pointer.
      The work needed in sysfs is more extensive.  At each directory
      or symlink creating I need to check if the directory it is being
      created in is a tagged directory and if so generate the appropriate
      tag to place on the sysfs_dirent.  Likewise at each symlink or
      directory removal I need to check if the sysfs directory it is
      being removed from is a tagged directory and if so figure out
      which tag goes along with the name I am deleting.
      Currently only directories which hold kobjects, and
      symlinks are supported.  There is not enough information
      in the current file attribute interfaces to give us anything
      to discriminate on which makes it useless, and there are
      no potential users which makes it an uninteresting problem
      to solve.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      gpio: sysfs interface · d8f388d8
      David Brownell authored
      This adds a simple sysfs interface for GPIOs.
          	/export ... asks the kernel to export a GPIO to userspace
          	/unexport ... to return a GPIO to the kernel
              /gpioN ... for each exported GPIO #N
      	    /value ... always readable, writes fail for input GPIOs
      	    /direction ... r/w as: in, out (default low); write high, low
      	/gpiochipN ... for each gpiochip; #N is its first GPIO
      	    /base ... (r/o) same as N
      	    /label ... (r/o) descriptive, not necessarily unique
      	    /ngpio ... (r/o) number of GPIOs; numbered N .. N+(ngpio - 1)
      GPIOs claimed by kernel code may be exported by its owner using a new
      gpio_export() call, which should be most useful for driver debugging.
      Such exports may optionally be done without a "direction" attribute.
      Userspace may ask to take over a GPIO by writing to a sysfs control file,
      helping to cope with incomplete board support or other "one-off"
      requirements that don't merit full kernel support:
        echo 23 > /sys/class/gpio/export
      	... will gpio_request(23, "sysfs") and gpio_export(23);
      	use /sys/class/gpio/gpio-23/direction to (re)configure it,
      	when that GPIO can be used as both input and output.
        echo 23 > /sys/class/gpio/unexport
      	... will gpio_free(23), when it was exported as above
      The extra D-space footprint is a few hundred bytes, except for the sysfs
      resources associated with each exported GPIO.  The additional I-space
      footprint is about two thirds of the current size of gpiolib (!).  Since
      no /dev node creation is involved, no "udev" support is needed.
      Related changes:
        * This adds a device pointer to "struct gpio_chip".  When GPIO
          providers initialize that, sysfs gpio class devices become children of
          that device instead of being "virtual" devices.
        * The (few) gpio_chip providers which have such a device node have
          been updated.
        * Some gpio_chip drivers also needed to update their module "owner"
          field ...  for which missing kerneldoc was added.
        * Some gpio_chips don't support input GPIOs.  Those GPIOs are now
          flagged appropriately when the chip is registered.
      Based on previous patches, and discussion both on and off LKML.
      A Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-gpio update is ready to submit once this
      merges to mainline.
