git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/linusw/linux-gpio Pull GPIO changes from Linus Walleij: "This is the bulk of GPIO changes for the v3.18 development cycle: - Increase the default ARCH_NR_GPIO from 256 to 512. This was done to avoid having a custom <asm/gpio.h> header for the x86 architecture - GPIO is custom and complicated enough as it is already! We want to move to a radix to store the descriptors going forward, and finally get rid of this fixed array size altogether. - Endgame patching of the gpio_remove() semantics initiated by Abdoulaye Berthe. It is not accepted by the system that the removal of a GPIO chip fails during eg reboot or shutdown, and therefore the return value has now painfully been refactored away. For special cases like GPIO expanders on a hot-pluggable bus like USB, we may later add some gpiochip_try_remove() call, but for the cases we have now, return values are moot. - Some incremental refactoring of the gpiolib core and ACPI GPIO library for more descriptor usage. - Refactor the chained IRQ handler set-up method to handle also threaded, nested interrupts and set up the parent IRQ correctly. Switch STMPE and TC3589x drivers to use this registration method. - Add a .irq_not_threaded flag to the struct gpio_chip, so that also GPIO expanders that block but are still not using threaded IRQ handlers. - New drivers for the ARM64 X-Gene SoC GPIO controller. - The syscon GPIO driver has been improved to handle the "DSP GPIO" found on the TI Keystone 2 SoC:s. - ADNP driver switched to use gpiolib irqchip helpers. - Refactor the DWAPB driver to support being instantiated from and MFD cell (platform device). - Incremental feature improvement in the Zynq, MCP23S08, DWAPB, OMAP, Xilinx and Crystalcove drivers. - Various minor fixes" * tag 'gpio-v3.18-1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/linusw/linux-gpio: (52 commits) gpio: pch: Build context save/restore only for PM pinctrl: abx500: get rid of unused variable gpio: ks8695: fix 'else should follow close brace '}'' gpio: stmpe: add verbose debug code gpio: stmpe: fix up interrupt enable logic gpio: staticize xway_stp_init() gpio: handle also nested irqchips in the chained handler set-up gpio: set parent irq on chained handlers gpiolib: irqchip: use irq_find_mapping while removing irqchip gpio: crystalcove: support virtual GPIO pinctrl: bcm281xx: make Kconfig dependency more strict gpio: kona: enable only on BCM_MOBILE or for compile testing gpio, bcm-kona, LLVMLinux: Remove use of __initconst gpio: Fix ngpio in gpio-xilinx driver gpio: dwapb: fix pointer to integer cast gpio: xgene: Remove unneeded #ifdef CONFIG_OF guard gpio: xgene: Remove unneeded forward declation for struct xgene_gpio gpio: xgene: Fix missing spin_lock_init() gpio: ks8695: fix switch case indentation gpiolib: add irq_not_threaded flag to gpio_chip ...
2014-09-26gpio: handle also nested irqchips in the chained handler set-upLinus Walleij1-1/+2
To unify how we connect cascaded IRQ chips to parent IRQs, if NULL us passed as handler to the gpiochip_set_chained_irqchip() function, assume the chips is nested rather than chained, and we still get the parent set up correctly by way of this function call. Alter the drivers for tc3589x and stmpe to use this to set up their chained handlers as a demonstration of the usage. Signed-off-by: Linus Walleij <linus.walleij@linaro.org>
2014-08-29gpio: change gpiochip_request_own_desc() prototypeAlexandre Courbot1-1/+2
The current prototype of gpiochip_request_own_desc() requires to obtain a pointer to a descriptor. This is in contradiction to all other GPIO request schemes, and imposes an extra step of obtaining a descriptor to drivers. Most drivers actually cannot even perform that step since the function that does it (gpichip_get_desc()) is gpiolib-private. Change gpiochip_request_own_desc() to return a descriptor from a (chip, hwnum) tuple and update users of this function (currently gpiolib-acpi only).

2014-07-28gpio: add flags argument to gpiod_get*() functionsAlexandre Courbot1-6/+20
The huge majority of GPIOs have their direction and initial value set right after being obtained by one of the gpiod_get() functions. The integer GPIO API had gpio_request_one() that took a convenience flags parameter allowing to specify an direction and value applied to the returned GPIO. This feature greatly simplifies client code and ensures errors are always handled properly. A similar feature has been requested for the gpiod API. Since setting the direction of a GPIO is so often the very next action done after obtaining its descriptor, we prefer to extend the existing functions instead of introducing new functions that would raise the number of gpiod getters to 16 (!). The drawback of this approach is that all gpiod clients need to be updated. To limit the pain, temporary macros are introduced that allow gpiod_get*() to be called with or without the extra flags argument. They will be removed once all consumer code has been updated.

2014-07-24gpiolib: Export gpiochip_request_own_desc and gpiochip_free_own_descGuenter Roeck1-0/+21
Both functions were introduced to let gpio drivers request their own gpio pins. Without exporting the functions, this can however only be used by gpio drivers built into the kernel. Secondary impact is that the functions can not currently be used by platform initialization code associated with the gpio-pca953x driver. This code permits auto-export of gpio pins through platform data, but if this functionality is used, the module can no longer be unloaded due to the problem solved with the introduction of gpiochip_request_own_desc and gpiochip_free_own_desc. Export both function so they can be used from modules and from platform initialization code.

2014-07-23gpio: remove gpiod_lock/unlock_as_irq()Alexandre Courbot1-2/+2
gpio_lock/unlock_as_irq() are working with (chip, offset) arguments and are thus not using the old integer namespace. Therefore, there is no reason to have gpiod variants of these functions working with descriptors, especially since the (chip, offset) tuple is more suitable to the users of these functions (GPIO drivers, whereas GPIO descriptors are targeted at GPIO consumers).

The documentation was not clear about whether gpio_direction_output should take a logical value or the physical level on the output line, i.e. whether the ACTIVE_LOW status would be taken into account.

2013-12-12gpiolib: return -ENOENT if no GPIO mapping existsAlexandre Courbot1-1/+5
Some devices drivers make use of optional GPIO parameters. For such drivers, it is important to discriminate between the case where no GPIO mapping has been defined for the function they are requesting, and the case where a mapping exists but an error occured while resolving it or when acquiring the GPIO. This patch changes the family of gpiod_get() functions such that they will return -ENOENT if and only if no GPIO mapping is defined for the requested function. Other error codes are used when an actual error occured during the GPIO resolution.

2013-12-09gpio: better lookup method for platform GPIOsAlexandre Courbot1-11/+17
Change the format of the platform GPIO lookup tables to make them less confusing and improve lookup efficiency. The previous format was a single linked-list that required to compare the device name and function ID of every single GPIO defined for each lookup. Switch that to a list of per-device tables, so that the lookup can be done in two steps, omitting the GPIOs that are not relevant for a particular device. The matching rules are now defined as follows: - The device name must match *exactly*, and can be NULL for GPIOs not assigned to a particular device, - If the function ID in the lookup table is NULL, the con_id argument of gpiod_get() will not be used for lookup. However, if it is defined, it must match exactly. - The index must always match.

2013-11-25Documentation: gpiolib: document new interfaceAlexandre Courbot6-0/+1436
gpiolib now exports a new descriptor-based interface which deprecates the older integer-based one. This patch documents this new interface and also takes the opportunity to brush-up the GPIO documentation a little bit. The new descriptor-based interface follows the same consumer/driver model as many other kernel subsystems (e.g. clock, regulator), so its documentation has similarly been splitted into different files. The content of the former documentation has been reused whenever it made sense; however, some of its content did not apply to the new interface anymore and have this been removed. Likewise, new sections like the mapping of GPIOs to devices have been written from scratch. The deprecated legacy-based documentation is still available, untouched, under Documentation/gpio/gpio-legacy.txt.
