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

I created v5 where I fixed obvious issues. I'll send it in few minutes.
Please note following topics:

I could not really spot what to fix in patched code (see below).

static int __devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider(struct device *dev,
struct clk_hw *(*get)(struct of_phandle_args *clkspec,
void *data),
struct device_node *of_node, void *data)
{
struct device_node **ptr;
int ret;

ptr = devres_alloc(devm_of_clk_release_provider, sizeof(*ptr),
GFP_KERNEL);
if (!ptr)
return -ENOMEM;

*ptr = of_node;
ret = of_clk_add_hw_provider(of_node, get, data);
if (!ret)
devres_add(dev, ptr);
else
devres_free(ptr);

return ret;
}

As far as I understand we need to allocate the ptr using devres_alloc.
We also need to pass this ptr to of_clk_add_hw_provider - and we must
assign our node to the *ptr. (I removed the extra braces - this change
is laso included in v5 but I don't see how we should improve). Can you
please explain me if you still wish to me change this further?

I did not put the 'auto-detection' for provider node in the patch v5 as
it really gives me bad vibes :) Maybe it is just my pessimistic nature
but I do expect that problems will arise when we accidentally end up in
parent node when this is not the purpose. I would rather keep this
simple by adding one specific API function more - and keeping the
existing API specific as well. But I can do v5 if you insist on having
this auto-detection.
