If I read that literally, one file-by-one would break build
bisectability. Do you mean split by source files depending on the
logical modules they belong to, e.g., etm3x, etm4x, etb10, etc.? If
so, I think it would look like the coresight-core would be first,
followed by the rest, but I also think there are cross-dependencies.
Hmm, OK, I'll have a look, but there's also one more thing: I think
the Makefile obj '-core' nomenclature was to change the name of the
module to not be the same as the core source file, so what do you think
about renaming the core source file instead of the module name? e.g.:

Instead of this:

obj-$(CONFIG_CORESIGHT) += coresight-core.o
coresight-core-objs := coresight.o \
of_coresight.o

we have this:

obj-$(CONFIG_CORESIGHT) += coresight.o
coresight-objs := coresight-core.o \
of_coresight.o

and e.g., instead of this:

obj-$(CONFIG_CORESIGHT_SOURCE_ETM3X) += coresight-etm3x-core.o
coresight-etm3x-core-objs := coresight-etm3x.o \
coresight-etm-cp14.o \
coresight-etm3x-sysfs.o

we have this:

obj-$(CONFIG_CORESIGHT_SOURCE_ETM3X) += coresight-etm3x.o
coresight-etm3x-objs := coresight-etm3x-core.o \
coresight-etm-cp14.o \
coresight-etm3x-sysfs.o

Right, I missed that :(

So would the first thing tmc_remove does is this:

if (drvdata->reading)
return -EBUSY;

work, or would we need to introduce a new sentinel?

OK, I thought the:

struct file_operations tmc_fops = {
.owner = THIS_MODULE,

would prevent module unload whilst sysfs access was being performed,
but I'll double check.

Thanks,

Kim
