Ok, thanks for the explanation.

Right, except that in this case when you expand the macros, all you get is

{
[ 0] = { 0x00000001 },
[ 1] = { 0x00000002 },
[ 2] = { 0x00000004 },
[ 3] = { 0x00000008 },
...
[ n] = { 0x1 << n },
...
[30] = { 0x40000000 },
[31] = { 0x80000000 },
}
This is entirely pointless for this particular driver. While I can
see good reasons to share idioms across similar drivers, this one
just doesn't need it. The only two functions where the data is used
AFAICT are da9052_irq_sync_unlock and da9052_irq_unmask, and both
could replace the table lookup with a trivial computation.

I only looked at the first function in the list (da9052_adc_manual_read)
and noticed that it doesn't have any users at all. It's certainly
ok to export a complete API set when some functions belong together,
but I had the impression that in this case it wasn't actually clear
what the API is or should be.

Maybe an explanation about what da9052_adc_manual_read does or why
it's exported would be useful, I'm objecting the other exports.

Ah, very nice.

Right, they could go into drivers/mfd/da905x.h header.
