I didn't *assume* anything. I read about the difference between what a
shared reset line does and an exclusive reset line. Providing the
get/put is properly balanced it is both safe and correct to request
shared access to the reset line.

The question is whether it is OK to propagate an error code if another
device has already requested exclusive access to the reset line (which
would cause our request for shared access to fail) since this causes us
to give up on adding the device. Here I concluded that it OK because a
failure does indicates a bug in DT or other driver but added the "I
think" because just-WARN_ON()-and-carry-on" is also a defensible
recovery approach (and *much* less likely to provoke boot sequence
regressions for existing systems).

No it can't.

If the reset line really really is shared then another driver could
but the cell back into the reset state before you have read the pid/cid.


Daniel.
