SubjectApplied "regmap: Disable debugfs when locking is disabled" to the regmap tree
The patch

regmap: Disable debugfs when locking is disabled

has been applied to the regmap tree at

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] regmap: Disable debugfs when locking is disabled

The recently added support for disabling the regmap internal locking left
debugfs enabled for devices with the locking disabled. This is a problem
since debugfs allows userspace to do things like initiate reads from the
hardware which will use the scratch buffers protected by the regmap locking
so could cause data corruption.

For safety address this by just disabling debugfs for these devices. That
is overly conservative since some of the debugfs files just read internal
data structures but it's much simpler to implmement and less likely to
lead to problems with tooling that works with debugfs.
