SubjectRe: [PATCH v11 03/11] firmware: xilinx: Add zynqmp IOCTL API for device control
Hi,

Apologies for the slow responses here, I meant to follow up on this sooner.

For zynqmp, EEMI interface allows clock, reset, power etc management through firmware but apart from those there are some operations which needs secure access through firmware. Examples are accessing some storage registers for inter agent communication, configuring another agent(RPU) mode, setting PLL parameters, boot device configuration etc. Those operations are covered as ioctls as they are very platform specific. Do you suggest to handle them with individual EEMI APIs instead of ioctl API?

I'm personally less worried about whether the calls are through an
ioctl API or an EEMI one, but if it is through ioctl, I'd prefer if it
wasn't wide-open pass-through. I.e. that the ioctls you actually use
are documented, and only those who are whitelisted are passed through
(and not in general exported to userspace).

Does that make sense?
