SubjectRE: Patch "USB: serial: mos7840: Supported MCS7810 device"
Date
Hi Alan,

Thank you for your kind comments for this patch. I will refine the patch
according to your comments and re-submit it then.

Regards,
Donald

How can this ever occur. If its not theoretically possible then this check
is just going to hide bugs in future.

Ditto

The assumption that serial->num_ports = 1 means "has LED" is going to cause
problems later if another deivce appears with 1 port and no LED. I think it
would be much clearer to have something like

if (mos7840_port->has_led)
for these tests of the driver

generally linux style is all lower case for egister names. Not a big deal

if (((test_pattern >> i) ^ (~Data >> 1)) & 0x0001) ?
again trivia...

This 500 value depends upon the HZ value of the kernel which won't always be
1000 on all platforms. You probably want

jiffies + msecs_to_jiffies(500);

(or indeed HZ/2)

Might be clearer if these occurences were a separate small function - gcc
will inline them if it makes sense, and it will be clearer.
