Thanks for implementing those changes. What is your feeling so far
about the difference? Has it gotten much simpler as I was hoping?

I definitely like this version much better. I have found a couple of
things that I point out below that could be improved (or me being
proven wrong on them), but overall I think it looks great and I don't
see major issues.

Great work!

I find it a bit confusing to have separate i3c_master_controller
and i3c_bus structures with this version. Why not merge the
two structures into one now and move the bus management
into master.c?

Apparently the new gmail version decided to cut off the second half of your
email after this line when I hit reply, which makes it much harder for me
to continue a proper review. I fear I'll have to get a real email client
again :(

This comment is now stale, even without merging the structures, right?

I think the 'parent' pointer is better omitted, it should always be
the same as master->dev->parent, right?

Since it contains an i2c_adapter, maybe a good name for the
combined i3c_master_controller+i3c_bus structure would
be 'i3c_adapter'?

+#define i3c_bus_for_each_i2cdev(bus, dev) \
+ list_for_each_entry(dev, &(bus)->devs.i2c, common.node)
+
+#define i3c_bus_for_each_i3cdev(bus, dev) \
+ list_for_each_entry(dev, &(bus)->devs.i3c, common.node)

I wonder if it would simplify things to drop the i2c and i3c
device lists and instead implement these for_each loops
based on device_for_each_child() with a check of the
bus_type==&i2c_bus/&i3c_bus. That might help with locking
and keeping the two lists synchronized, which may or
may not be a problem here.
