SubjectRe: [PATCH 04/11] ST SPEAr: Added basic header files for SPEAr platform
From
2010/3/3 Viresh KUMAR <viresh.kumar@st.com>:

>  arch/arm/plat-spear/include/plat/gpt.h |  108 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If this file is only supposed to be used from plat-spear/time.c, move it down
into plat-spear/gpt.h and #include "gpt.h" so noone else will
accidentally use it.

This file to macro match i.e. __PLAT_GPT_H again I think...
(But see below.)

Some people want you to do all the indentation e.g. between
GPT_CTRL_OFF -> 0x80 with TABs only, and I tend to do that
to keep everybody happy. (This would go for all .h files with
register definitions.

Am I right in assuming that this will only ever be used from the plat/timer.c
file?

I would contemplate moving away the abstraction API altogether and put
everything into timer.c, and just hardcode in the timers you're using as
clocksource and clock event, and put the register definitions and
offsets from base there as well. This will get down the number of files
and reduce the forest of files in a nice way.

If you have some other use of timers that you're planning, the API may
be justified, please detail the uses you have in mind in that case.

I know writing APIs is great fun, but sometimes it's easier to read the
code if you just get rid of them and keep things simple...

Yours,
