This is the bulk of GPIO changes for the v4.1 development
cycle: - A new GPIO hogging mechanism has been added. This can be used on boards that want to drive some GPIO line high, low, or set it as input on boot and then never touch it again. For some embedded systems this is bliss and simplifies things to a great extent. - Some API cleanup and closure: gpiod_get_array() and gpiod_put_array() has been added to get and put GPIOs in bulk as was possible with the non-descriptor API. - Encapsulate cross-calls to the pin control subsystem in <linux/gpio/driver.h>. Now this should be the only header any GPIO driver needs to include or something is wrong. Cleanups restricting drivers to this include are welcomed if tested. - Sort the GPIO Kconfig and split it into submenus, as it was becoming and unstructured, illogical and unnavigatable mess. I hope this is easier to follow. Menus that require a certain subsystem like I2C can now be hidden nicely for example, still working on others. - New drivers: - New driver for the Altera Soft GPIO. - The F7188x driver now handles the F71869 and F71869A variants. - The MIPS Loongson driver has been moved to drivers/gpio for consolidation and cleanup. - Cleanups: - The MAX732x is converted to use the GPIOLIB_IRQCHIP infrastructure. - The PCF857x is converted to use the GPIOLIB_IRQCHIP infrastructure. - Radical cleanup of the OMAP driver. - Misc: - Enable the DWAPB GPIO for all architectures. This is a "hard IP" block from Synopsys which has started to turn up in so diverse architectures as X86 Quark, ARC and a slew of ARM systems. So even though it's not an expander, it's generic enough to be available for all. - We add a mock GPIO on Crystalcove PMIC after a long discussion with Daniel Vetter et al, tracing back to the shootout at the kernel summit where DRM drivers and sub-componentization was discussed. In this case a mock GPIO is assumed to be the best compromise gaining some reuse of infrastructure without making DRM drivers overly complex at the same time. Let's see. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1 iQIcBAABAgAGBQJVMNYHAAoJEEEQszewGV1zSmwP/2oCk4CB4fexrqM+irUJrDnT 3D/8tuaq7EghMnwPXCfHa8R8eWF6XEDvHPcJNVgXiWbtCGRMpdsiobFunzwLQv5A CbcuAOzWmzA0ePbfa0+xpLpWM/RJP9u1an/RboIzeeS7oQ1Yj/VjF8uS8Se+Pe3r nPKvTpoU5lGpIUTEEYjiJhL8pBmp8k75a6NGM4U8VwXI9BsdhDkpRGsfG3NK8hs2 vSvWDB19NCW6iOd3gN4KA4f0Zz57WONMS7jY2WaipqYRlr37o4i2CA0ME1xoXEfg 3JT1lmg7esNCvnjQOaGTaM6nf66j7/nleNtnMmAAJcJeMNoh9yS6397TGaYFThsn C1WmAoaonor3RAujrL3oRenxfq2+Vl63OvsClDiWz7LL9YYJ/G2nS3MggFHpZUhu /CHXSt08j0Kewfc5SkvFCTnrPG7aWy/YDou6PfuXIvkFp5h1FXDkHTXvOD33turD ohEPlg/9i2uCnVQfN+GV4h69WSyEiOpxG5W7ryE+nIo6XzWIctHLIH2V6aE7YrwG FBg7hC1QV1cI776HFOuM4rPwG1N80IQeC3vr5z/jEtZVPXrIaGvupxFC+O1DAx4W rzBD8lX45B96WmIW2odg11KXXyPO1srW4ZFWghm95HTfvnQc3O6LmV9riv1k7DYA gR+aRYNiLO01UmoTPYbK =QFbC -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
