Hi Andy. 
Thanks for review.

Please read my answers inline.

JTAG in code is lower (jtag) cane but in descriptions and notes it is upper (JTAG).
In all places which do not correspond to this I will fix.

5 - is a max len of JTAG device id in device name. I will add define to it.

In general I don't see the case for the system with hundreds JTAG interfaces.
I will limit maximum jtag master to 255 devices and change id len to 3

#define MAX_JTAG_ID_STR_LEN 5
#define MAX_JTAG_NAME_LEN (sizeof("jtag") + MAX_JTAG_ID_STR_LEN)

Yes.
Will fix.

Yes.

But following to LINUX kernel style, it should be no longer than 80 symbols.
It will not pass by ./scripts/checkpatch.pl

Will it be OK to send a patch which failed 80 symbols limitation check?

It can be opened only once.

Yes, except "mode_set"
Will remove mode_set from check

Jtag driver uses miscdevice and related misc_register and misc_deregister
calls for creation and destruction. There is no device object prior to
call to misc_register, which could be used in devm_jtag_register.

Redundant. Removed.

It not limited by specification.
But we enforce an upper bound for the length here, to prevent users from draining
kernel memory with giant buffers.
So it was limited by size of unsigned short int (65535)
