SubjectRe: [alsa-devel] [RFC PATCH 00/40] soundwire: updates for 5.4

There was an intent to provide a logical progression...

First debugfs, since I believe it was reviewed before, and I wanted
folks like Greg to double-check it without burrying it too deep.

Then all corrections, followed by the allocator.

And last all PM stuff, split by regular suspend/resume and pm_runtime.

The RFC state is precisely to gather feedback, if folks want a different
order that's fine. I just wanted to be transparent and share what we have.

The lack of commits is a miss, I went from 170 debug/integration patches
to 40 yesterday and my brain was fried.

the frame allocation is a critical piece and it does need to be
hardened. However we can do so in steps. The current setups we have
support 1 Slave per link and a limited amount of bandwidth. The links
themselves don't operate at the max frequency.
Also note that that the streams are 'statically' defined by the
dailinks, and the allocation is not fully dynamic with random
configurations being request. If you fail you fail fast.

Nevertheless I do plan to recheck the allocator with an additional
scripting tool. It'd be very good to e.g. dump the current setup in a
debugfs file and show to users what is happening (or not happening). I
didn't recall you worked on SoundWire and I can use your practical
knowledge to make the code and tools better :-)

> Thanks for your contribution and have a good day!

Thanks for reviewing this long series and have a nice week-end.
