Yes. I only considered the current usage. But I agree with your
comment. I will fix it in next version.

I want to avoid client drivers using different APIs to call everyone of
these IPC drivers. One
solution for this issue is to use name of the device to get the device
pointer and then use
that pointer in common API to make IPC calls. This solution is similar
to whats used in
extcon framework.

To implement this model either we have to use class type to group all
these devices or
implement a custom list to keep the references for all these devices.

I preferred to go with class based grouping, so that I can use
class_find_device() API to
get the device pointer.

I am open for suggestions. I will send a separate mail to you discuss
about the further
details.
