This is the bulk of GPIO changes for kernel cycle v4.7:
Core infrastructural changes: - Support for natively single-ended GPIO driver stages. This means that if the hardware has registers to configure open drain or open source configuration, we use that rather than (as we did before) try to emulate it by switching the line to an input to get high impedance. This is also documented throughly in Documentation/gpio/driver.txt for those of you who did not understand one word of what I just wrote. - Start to do away with the unnecessarily complex and unitelligible ARCH_REQUIRE_GPIOLIB and ARCH_WANT_OPTIONAL_GPIOLIB, another evolutional artifact from the time when the GPIO subsystem was unmaintained. Archs can now just select GPIOLIB and be done with it, cleanups to arches will trickle in for the next kernel. Some minor archs ACKed the changes immediately so these are included in this pull request. - Advancing the use of the data pointer inside the GPIO device for storing driver data by switching the PowerPC, Super-H Unicore and a few other subarches or subsystem drivers in ALSA SoC, Input, serial, SSB, staging etc to use it. - The initialization now reads the input/output state of the GPIO lines, so that each GPIO descriptor knows - if this callback is implemented - whether the line is input or output. This also reflects nicely in userspace "lsgpio". - It is now possible to name GPIO producer names, line names, from the device tree. (Platform data has been supported for a while.) I bet we will get a similar mechanism for ACPI one of those days. This makes is possible to get sensible producer names for e.g. GPIO rails in "lsgpio" in userspace. New drivers: - New driver for the Loongson1. - The XLP driver now supports Broadcom Vulcan ARM64. - The IT87 driver now supports IT8620 and IT8628. - The PCA953X driver now supports Galileo Gen2. Driver improvements: - MCP23S08 was switched to use the gpiolib irqchip helpers and now also suppors level-triggered interrupts. - 74x164 and RCAR now supports the .set_multiple() callback - AMDPT was converted to use generic GPIO. - TC3589x, TPS65218, SX150X, F7188X, MENZ127, VX855, WM831X, WM8994 support the new single ended callback for open drain and in some cases open source. - Implement the .get_direction() callback for a few more drivers like PL061, Xgene. Cleanups: - Paul Gortmaker combed through the drivers and de-modularized those who are not really modules. - Move the GPIO poweroff DT bindings to the power subdir where they belong. - Rename gpio-generic.c to gpio-mmio.c, which is much more to the point. That's what it is handling, nothing more, nothing less. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1 iQIcBAABAgAGBQJXOuJ5AAoJEEEQszewGV1zNXsQAII5wtkP69WRJ3goYBKg1dZN DkuLqZyVI4hCgRhptzUW10gDLHKKOCVubfetTJHSpyG/dWDJXPCyH6FHF+pW6lMX y+em8kAvWctKpaosy4EM7O55/IohW0/fNCTOfzfrUNivjydFuA2XwPUiPqC7111O DeKlC/t+W1JEvZTiKMi83pKq+9wqhiHmD0qxRHhV57S+MT8e7mdlSKOp7uUkKPkg LPlerXosnmeFjL2emuSnKl/tq8pOyruU6uaIGG/uwpbo2W86Dok9GY2GWkQ4pANT pDtprc4aJ/Clf6Q0CoKwQbmAozqTDeJo+Und9tRs2KuZRly2bWOcyVE0lyK+Y4s0 544LcKw2q6cB9ARZ6JExEVRJejPISGKMqo9TaHkyNSIJoiiatKYvNS4WVeFtTgbI W+1WfM1svPymNRqVPO1PMLV+3m9dalDH2WjtaFF21uCAQ/G0AuPEHjEDbbx0HIpb qrvWmYzZ97Rm/LdYROFRO53nEdCp2jh6c3n4/2kGYM8H0suvGxXZsB1g4i+Dm+B+ qKVTS282azlDuH9ohXeXizeb6atK6s8TC3Rmew97SmXDO00cUQzEQO/ZquRLHY9r n83afQ4OL2Z9yruAxAk7pCshVSyheOsHuFPuZ7bwPW31VMdoWNRkhnaTUXMjGfYg 3y39IHrCKWNMCCVM1iNl =z4d6 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
