Hm I used to have a range registration macro a long time ago
but killed it for clarity, readability and keeping pins as part of the
struct pinctrl_desc device descriptor.

Maybe I should revisit that concept ...

I can easily think of static inlines in <linux/pinctrl/pinctrl.h>
that can conjure template-named pin ranges, like:

static inline struct pinctrl_pin_desc *
pinctrl_gen_pin_desc_range(unsigned start, unsigned end, const char *template)
{
struct pinctrl_pin_desc *range;
unsigned pins = end - start + 1;
unsigned i;
range = kmalloc(sizeof(pinctrl_pin_desc) * pins);
if (!range)
return -ENOMEM;
for (i = 0; i < pins; i++) {
range[i].number = start + i;
range[i].name = kstrdup("%s%u", template, start + i);
/* Error handling if kstrdup fails here */
}
return range;
}
That then also creates a need to catenate and combine some static
and some generated ranges into a total range and in the end add that
to the pinctrl_desc.pins member.

Would this work for you Haojian?

If you like it I can attempt to create a separate patch for this.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
