SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 1/8] clk: clkdev/of_clk - add managed lookup and provider registrations
Hello Stephen,

Thanks a bunch for taking the time and reviewing this!

Allright. I'll split this to two patches.

So I will drop the line mentioning devm_clk_release_clkdev()

I completely removed the local variable np and just unconditionally set
the allocated devres to point at the node (if allocation succeeded). We
could of course only do this if the provider registration succeeded and
save one assignment - but I guess I intended to remove the curly braces
and thus decided to go for one liner after if. But apparently I didn't
remove the braces O_o. Well, I can put the assignment inside the
condition if you prefer that.

I am sorry but I don't quite follow your suggestion here. Do you mean we
could just pass the struct device_node *np in devres_add()? I thought
the pointer passed to devress_add() should be allocated using
devres_alloc. Can you please elaborate what you mean?

Will do.

Huh. I don't know why but building this kind of logic in core is a bit
scary to me. I guess I can try implementing something like this - but I
am not really a fan of this. (Accidentally) omit the #clock-cells from
node and we go to parent node - I am a novice on this area but this
sounds like a potential hazard to me. I believe the driver should know
if it's properties should be in own or parent node - and if they are
not, then there should be no guessing but error. The lifetime is topic
where I would like to get information from you who know the kernel
better than I do =) But I guess the parent node is there at least as
long as the child device is alive. So for me the life time of
get-callback is more crucial - but as I said, I don't understand the
kernel in details so you probably know it better than me. But please let
me know your final take on this and I will follow the guidance =)

Sure. I will add the doc. Reason why I didn't do it is that the current
devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider() did not have doc. But I'll add that in
next patch.

Ok. Will do.
