Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] misc: Add power-efuse driver
Date
Hello,

This is a second revision of the v1 patch series posted previously
[2].

Changes since v1:
- dropped pmbus/lm25066 patches, submitted separately via hwmon tree [Guenter]
- fixed indentation in power-efuse.yaml [Rob's bot]
- added more detailed description in power-efuse.yaml [Rob]
- added sysfs ABI documentation [Greg]
- replaced manual struct attribute_group and sysfs_create_group()
with ATTRIBUTE_GROUPS() and driver.dev_groups [Greg]

A lightly edited version of the previous cover letter follows.


This patch series is another incarnation of some previous efforts [0]
at enabling userspace access to the OPERATION state (and now status
flags) of PMBus devices, specifically with respect to efuses
protecting general-purpose power outputs. This functionality is an
important component enabling a port of OpenBMC to the Delta AHE-50DC
Open19 power shelf [1].

The first patch adds dt-bindings, and the second adds the
implementation of the power-efuse driver. The driver is fairly
simple; it merely provides a sysfs interface to enable, disable, and
retrieve error flags from an underlying regulator (which in the
expected usage will most likely be a PMBus device).

There is one aspect of its usage of the regulator API I'm a bit
uncertain about, however: this driver seems like a case where an
exclusive 'get' of the regulator (i.e. devm_regulator_get_exclusive()
instead of devm_regulator_get() in efuse_probe()) would be
appropriate, since in the intended usage no other device should be
using an efuse's regulator. With an exclusive get though, the
regulator's use_count and the consumer's enable_count don't balance
out properly to allow the enable/disable operations to work properly
(the former ending up one more than the latter, leading to
enable_count underflows on attempts to disable the regulator). So at
least for now it's using a non-exclusive get -- I'd be happy to hear
any pointers on a way to allow an exclusive get to work here, though.


Thanks,
Zev
