SubjectRe: [PATCH v1] clk: Add devm_clk_{prepare,enable,prepare_enable}
Doh! Your reply never made it to my inbox, and I never thought to check
the mailing list...

Fair enough. Though it's only because of C's function pointer idiosyncrasies
that a function wrapper is even needed.

The use-case I had in mind was
"Device drivers that call
1) clk_prepare_enable from probe()
2) clk_disable_unprepare() in remove()"

(Russell King has pointed out the short-comings of such an approach
in a different sub-thread.)

Oooh, I think I understand what you mean...

I saw clk_prepare_enable() defined as clk_prepare() + clk_enable(),
and figured I'd define devm_clk_prepare_enable() as
devm_clk_prepare() + devm_clk_enable() without realizing that
devm_clk_enable() made no sense.

Solution: drop devm_clk_enable() from include/linux/clk.h
Consequence devm_clk_prepare_enable() cannot be static inline,
but that may not be a big deal...
