maybe it would be nice to have your real name here.

Why all these whitespace-only changes ? I doubt that anybody seriously
wanna review that.

As I know Greg, he's doesn't like whitespace-only changes at all, unless
you give him an really good reason for it.

I'd prefer that name change as a separate (previous) patch.

you should use the BIT() macro here.

don't leave in such hackish debug helpers

is that indirection really necessary ? (IOW: are there separate
implementations needed ?)

maybe size_t for offset ?

We should have a config sym for that, so only those who really need the
device can enable it.

OTOH, it would be even nicer to have this as an extra module.


Nevertheless its good that you NI folks now start making your products
usable on mainline kernel, instead of this really ridiculous and broken-
by-design "nikal"/daqmx crap (which even sometimes introduce 0day-
exploitable leaks allowing remote machine takeover - I've posted one
@full-disclosure several month ago. One of the reasons why I was banned
from the forums - criticism in general seems to be disliked there)

Over the recent years, I tried to get some specs on the cRIOs, in order
to write proper drivers and bring them to mainline (currently these
boxes might be nice for dumb PLC, but nothing more, and the marketing
claim "linux support" is just wrong). But there was no way of getting
anything from NI (not even after several calls with product management
and development team). And playing around w/ LV was in no way any
option. So I had to tell my client that cRIOs are completely unusable
for him, and some >$1M purchases went off the table.
(I've rarely seen any company so hostile against Linux support like NI)


good luck,
