That bit seems platform specific but in generic code ?

So we have a different API to the ak8975 just posted and to the other
existing devices. This needs sorting out across the devices before there
is a complete disaster. Right now we have a mix of submissions pending
which variously use

misc + sysfs
sysfs
input (reporting X Y Z etc axes)

Someone needs to decide on a single API before it's too late.

What happens if you have two readers - is it fine they get copies of the
same event when it races ?

Pedantically if data is consumed and a partial copy occurs you should
return the bytes successfully copied.

Other devices make all of this sysfs or use input. We need to work out
what the right interface actually is.

Surely this is serialized anyway ?

The whole chip->users thing you are implementing is basically a
reimplementation of the kernel runtime pm stuff - so can that be used
instead ?

This could go in the C file.
