SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] fpga: region: release bridges in successful path

Hi Vyacheslav,

Thanks for the patch, but actually this is on purpose to prevent
someone disabling the bridges when a region has hardware running in
it. The fpga_bridges_put happens when the device tree overlay is
removed in fpga_region_notify_post_remove(). When an overlay programs
a region, the region gets exclusive control of the bridges and
disables them before programming. After programming, the region
re-enables the bridges and keeps exclusive control of them. Some
drivers are loaded by device tree and are expecting those bridges to
stay enabled. Later when the overlay is removed, the drivers are
unloaded first, the bridges are disable and put.
