device that will use the GPIO and the function the requested GPIO is supposed to
fulfill:
- struct gpio_desc *gpiod_get(struct device *dev, const char *con_id)
+ struct gpio_desc *gpiod_get(struct device *dev, const char *con_id,
+ enum gpiod_flags flags)
If a function is implemented by using several GPIOs together (e.g. a simple LED
device that displays digits), an additional index argument can be specified:
struct gpio_desc *gpiod_get_index(struct device *dev,
- const char *con_id, unsigned int idx)
+ const char *con_id, unsigned int idx,
+ enum gpiod_flags flags)
+
+The flags parameter is used to optionally specify a direction and initial value
+for the GPIO. Values can be:
+
+* GPIOD_ASIS or 0 to not initialize the GPIO at all. The direction must be set
+ later with one of the dedicated functions.
+* GPIOD_IN to initialize the GPIO as input.
+* GPIOD_OUT_LOW to initialize the GPIO as output with a value of 0.
+* GPIOD_OUT_HIGH to initialize the GPIO as output with a value of 1.
Both functions return either a valid GPIO descriptor, or an error code checkable
with IS_ERR() (they will never return a NULL pointer). -ENOENT will be returned
