Subject[PATCH v8 00/22] Introduce the Counter character device interface
Changes in v8:
- Consolidated Counter sysfs ABI documentation to single file
- Added events_queue_size sysfs attribute to allow users to dynamically
resize the events queue
- Fixed markup syntax and typos in generic-counter.rst
- Improved documentation in include/uapi/linux/counter.h and friends
- Renamed the struct counter_event "errno" member to "status"
- Dropped the "irq_trigger" 104-QUAD-8 sysfs attribute; this
functionality now occurs implicitly via the Counter chrdev interface
- Return -ERANGE where appropriate instead of -EINVAL
- Simplified switch exit paths; return early when possible
- Call devm_request_irq() before devm_counter_register() for 104-quad-8
- Renamed devm_counter_unregister() to more apt devm_counter_release()
- Use enum counter_scope for scope values in counter-sysfs.c
- Use sysfs_emit() instead of sprintf() where appropriate
- Renamed find_in_string_array() to more apt counter_find_enum()
- Renamed *_action_get() and *_action_write() to *_action_read() and
*_action_write() to match new naming convention of Counter callbacks
- Use "Counter function" naming convention instead of "Counter count
function" to avoid confusion about scope

I pulled out a lot of bits and pieces to their own patches; hopefully
that makes reviewing this patchset much simpler than before. This
patchset is also available on my personal public git repo for anyone who
wants a quick way to clone:

The patches preceding "counter: Internalize sysfs interface code" are
primarily cleanup and fixes that can be picked up and applied now to the
IIO tree if so desired. The "counter: Internalize sysfs interface code"
patch as well may be considered for pickup because it is relatively safe
and makes no changes to the userspace interface.

To summarize the main points of this patchset: there are no changes to
the existing Counter sysfs userspace interface; a Counter character
device interface is introduced that allows Counter events and associated
data to be read() by userspace; the events_configure() and
watch_validate() driver callbacks are introduced to support Counter
events; and IRQ support is added to the 104-QUAD-8 driver, serving as an
example of how to support the new Counter events functionality.

Something that should still be discussed: should the struct
counter_event "status" member be 8 bits or 32 bits wide? This member
will provide the return status (system error number) of an event
