    Subject[PATCH v9 0/3] drivers: ddcci: upstream DDCCI driver
    This patch upstreams(adds) the DDCCI driver by Christoph Grenz into
    the kernel. The original gitlab page is loacted at https://gitlab

    DDC/CI is a control protocol for monitor settings supported by most
    monitors since about 2005. A chardev and sysfs interface is provided.
    The seccond patch in this series provides a backlight driver using

    v2: Fix typos.

    v3: Add documentation, move files around, replace semaphores with
    mutexes, and replaced <asm-generic/fcntl.h> with <linux/fcntl.h>.
    "imirkin"(which due to his involvement in the dri-devel irc channel
    I cant help but assume to be a DRM developer) said that the DDC/CI
    bus does not intefere with the buses that DRM is involved with.

    v4: Move some documentation, fix grammer mistakes, remove usages of
    likely(), and clarify some documentation.

    v5: Fix grammer mistakes, remove usages of likely(), and clarify
    some documentation.

    v6: Change contact information to reference Christoph Grenz.

    v7: Remove all instances of the unlikely() macro.

    v8: Modify documentation to provide updated date and kernel
    documentation, fix SPDX lines, use isalpha instead of redefining
    logic, change maximum amount of bytes that can be written to be
    conformant with DDC/CI specification, prevent userspace from holding
    locks with the open file descriptor, remove ddcci_cdev_seek, dont
    refine sysfs_emit() logic, use EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL instead of
    EXPORT_SYMBOL, remove ddcci_device_remove_void, remove module
    paramaters and version, and split into 2 patches.

    v9: Fix IS_ANY_ID matching for compilers and archs where char is
    unsigned char and use the cannonical patch format.
    Reported-by: kernel test robot <>

    Patch 1: Add the main DDCCI component.

    Patch 2: Add the backlight driver that utilizes DDCCI.

    Patch 3: Add documentation for the DDCCI drivers.
