Subject[PATCH-v6 1/2]KernelDoc:Add the device driver-model structures to kerneldoc
Date
From: Wanlong Gao <wanlong.gao@gmail.com>




Add the comments to the structure bus_type, device_driver, device,
class to device.h for generating the driver-model kerneldoc. With another patch
these all removed from the files in Documentation/driver-model/ since
they are out of date. That will keep things up to date and provide a better way
to document this stuff.

+ * default attributes, the bus' methods, PM operations, and the driver core's
+ * private data.

+/**
+ * struct device - The basic device structure
+ * @parent: The device's "parent" device, the device to which it is attached.
+ * In most cases, a parent device is some sort of bus or host
+ * controller. If parent is NULL, the device, is a top-level device,
+ * which is not usually what you want.
+ * @p: Holds the private data of the driver core portions of the device.
+ * See the comment of the struct device_private for detail.
+ * @kobj: A top-level, abstract class from which other classes are derived.
+ * @init_name: Initial name of the device.
+ * @type: The type of device.
+ * This identifies the device type and carries type-specific
+ * information.
+ * @mutex: Mutex to synchronize calls to its driver.
+ * @bus: Type of bus device is on.
+ * @driver: Which driver has allocated this
+ * @platform_data: Platform data specific to the device.
+ * Example: For devices on custom boards, as typical of embedded
+ * and SOC based hardware, Linux often uses platform_data to point
+ * to board-specific structures describing devices and how they
+ * are wired. That can include what ports are available, chip
+ * variants, which GPIO pins act in what additional roles, and so
+ * on. This shrinks the "Board Support Packages" (BSPs) and
+ * minimizes board-specific #ifdefs in drivers.
+ * @power: For device power management.
+ * See Documentation/power/devices.txt for details.
+ * @pwr_domain: Provide callbacks that are executed during system suspend,
+ * hibernation, system resume and during runtime PM transitions
+ * along with subsystem-level and driver-level callbacks.
+ * @numa_node: NUMA node this device is close to.
+ * @dma_mask: Dma mask (if dma'ble device).
+ * @coherent_dma_mask: Like dma_mask, but for alloc_coherent mapping as not all
+ * hardware supports 64-bit addresses for consistent allocations
+ * such descriptors.
+ * @dma_parms: A low level driver may set these to teach IOMMU code about
+ * segment limitations.
+ * @dma_pools: Dma pools (if dma'ble device).
+ * @dma_mem: Internal for coherent mem override.
+ * @archdata: For arch-specific additions.
+ * @of_node: Associated device tree node.
+ * @of_match: Matching of_device_id from driver.
+ * @devt: For creating the sysfs "dev".
+ * @devres_lock: Spinlock to protect the resource of the device.
+ * @devres_head: The resources list of the device.
+ * @knode_class: The node used to add the device to the class list.
+ * @class: The class of the device.
+ * @groups: Optional attribute groups.
+ * @release: Callback to free the device after all references have
+ * gone away. This should be set by the allocator of the
+ * device (i.e. the bus driver that discovered the device).
+ *
+ * At the lowest level, every device in a Linux system is represented by an
+ * instance of struct device. The device structure contains the information
+ * that the device model core needs to model the system. Most subsystems,

+ * result, it is rare for devices to be represented by bare device structures;
+ * instead, that structure, like kobject structures, is usually embedded within
+ * a higher-level representation of the device.
