Subject[PATCH v15 0/6] Media Device Allocator API
Media Device Allocator API to allows multiple drivers share a media device.
This API solves a very common use-case for media devices where one physical
device (an USB stick) provides both audio and video. When such media device
exposes a standard USB Audio class, a proprietary Video class, two or more
independent drivers will share a single physical USB bridge. In such cases,
it is necessary to coordinate access to the shared resource.

Using this API, drivers can allocate a media device with the shared struct
device as the key. Once the media device is allocated by a driver, other
drivers can get a reference to it. The media device is released when all
the references are released.

The primary focus for testing The patch series is making sure media
device is released when both drivers release the media device with
a series of unbind/binds on both drivers.

- both au0828 and snd-usb-aduio as built-in
- both au0828 and snd-usb-aduio as modules
- au0828 as module and snd-usb-aduio as built-in
- au0828 as built-in and snd-usb-aduio as module

Test results can be found at:

Changes since v14:
- Fixed typos and Copyright date.
- Made VBI shareable with audio and video.
- Tested with Hans's patch to to fix second VBi stream stepping
on active VBI stream. The patch didn't fix the problem.

1. Start qv4l2 -V /dev/vbi0
Start capture - Streaming active

2. Start qv4l2 -V /dev/vbi0
Start capture - Streaming active
Streaming won't start and the first stream stops.

There is still a problem in au0828. I am sending the patch series with
audio, video, and VBI shareable with this known issue.

Changes since v13:
- Minor changes to variable names and other minor changes to copyright
and typos suggested by Hans Verkuil.

Changes since v12:
- Patch 1: Fixed prototype warns from media_dev_allocator.c. Removed
dependency on find_module() by adding struct module to input args.
Still need module name to pass into media_device API.
- Patch 2 & 4: Update media dev allocator api calls to pass in struct module
- No changes to Patches 3 & 5.
- Added patch 6 with a test. It can go in separately.

Changes since v11:
- Patch 1: Add CONFIG_MODULES dependency in media_dev_allocator files.
to fix compile errors when CONFIG_MODULES is disabled.
- Patch 2, 3: No changes.
- Patch 4: Fix sparse error reported by Dan Carpenter.
- Patch 5: Fix warns found by Hans Verkuil.
- v11 was tested on 5.0-rc7 and addresses comments on v10 series from
Hans Verkuil. Fixed problems found in resource sharing logic in au0828
adding a patch 5 to this series. The test plan used for testing resource
sharing could serve as a regression test plan and the test results can be
found at:
- v10 was tested on 5.0-rc3 and addresses comments on v9 series from
Hans Verkuil.

Changes since v10:
- Patch 1: Fixed SPDX tag and removed redundant IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_USB)
around media_device_usb_allocate() - Sakari Ailus's review
- Patch 2 and 3: No changes
- Patch 4: Fixed SPDX tag - Sakari Ailus's review comment.
- Carried Reviewed-by tag from Takashi Iwai for the sound from v9.
- Patch 5: This is a new patch added to fix resource sharing
inconsistencies and problem found during testing using Han's

Changes since v9:
- Patch 1: Fix mutex assert warning from find_module() calls. This
code was written before the change to find_module() that requires
callers to hold module_mutex. I missed this during my testing on
4.20-rc6. Hans Verkuil reported the problem.
- Patch 4: sound/usb: Initializes all the entities it can before
registering the device based on comments from Hans Verkuil
- Carried Reviewed-by tag from Takashi Iwai for the sound from v9.
- No changes to Patches 2 and 3.
