SubjectRe: [PATCH] mfd: cros: Update EC protocol to match current EC code
Regarding: """While we are here I'd suggest if we can also fix the few
errors (3)
and warnings (5) spotted by checkpatch. With that it's an ack from my
side."""
These errors and warning are for code that is not used by the kernel:
WARNING: __aligned(size) is preferred over __attribute__((aligned(size)))
#373: FILE: include/linux/mfd/cros_ec_commands.h:415:
+#define __aligned(x) __attribute__((aligned(x)))
Applies only when __aligned is not defined


ERROR: Macros with complex values should be enclosed in parentheses
#410: FILE: include/linux/mfd/cros_ec_commands.h:452:
+#define __ec_align2 __packed __aligned(2)
and
ERROR: Macros with complex values should be enclosed in parentheses
#411: FILE: include/linux/mfd/cros_ec_commands.h:453:
+#define __ec_align4 __packed __aligned(4)
and
ERROR: Macros with complex values should be enclosed in parentheses
#428: FILE: include/linux/mfd/cros_ec_commands.h:470:
+#define __ec_align_offset2 __packed __aligned(2)
are only defined when CONFIG_HOSTCMD_ALIGNED is defined, it is only
used by the EC.

Using u8 through the EC codebase is a big change, as it will make
merging patches from one EC branch to another painful.

I will post a new version that use BIT() - and yet more defines - shortly.

Gwendal.
