Subject[RFC PATCH 0/3] Add simple EEPROM Framework via regmap.
Date
This patchset adds a new simple EEPROM framework to kernel.

Up until now, EEPROM drivers were stored in drivers/misc, where they all had to
duplicate pretty much the same code to register a sysfs file, allow in-kernel
users to access the content of the devices they were driving, etc.

This was also a problem as far as other in-kernel users were involved, since
the solutions used were pretty much different from on driver to another, there
was a rather big abstraction leak.

This introduction of this framework aims at solving this. It also introduces DT
representation for consumer devices to go get the data they require (MAC
Addresses, SoC/Revision ID, part numbers, and so on) from the EEPROMs.

Having regmap interface to this framework would give much better
abstraction for eeproms on different buses.

patch 1 Introduces the EEPROM framework.
Patch 2 migrates an existing driver to eeprom framework.
Patch 3 Adds Qualcomm specific qfprom driver.

Its also possible to migrate other eeprom drivers to this framework.
Patch 3 can also be made a generic mmio-eeprom driver.

Providers APIs:
eeprom_register/unregister();

Consumers APIs:
eeprom_cell_get()/eeprom_cell_get_byname();
eeprom_cell_read()/eeprom_cell_write();

Device Tree:
qfprom: qfprom@00700000 {
#eeprom-cells = <2>;
compatible = "qcom,qfprom";
reg = <0x00700000 0x1000>;
};

tsens: tsens {
...
eeproms = <&qfprom 0x404 0x10>, <&qfprom 0x414 0x10>;
eeprom-names = "calib", "backup_calib";
...
};

userspace interface:

hexdump /sys/class/eeprom/eeprom0/eeprom

0000000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
