SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 14/17] input: RMI4 F30 GPIO/LED control
From
GPIO/LED, nice since I'm a GPIO maintainer I'll take a closer look.

If the bus will start doing a lot of non-input business it should live under
drivers/mfd but I think this is just one exception, right?

The non-existance of <linux/gpio.h> and <linux/leds.h> tells us that something
is very wrong.

You should not model these GPIOs and LEDs by a set of obscure
sysfs attributes, instead use the proper kernel subsystems that
already exist for handling this! LEDs and GPIOs already have their
own (standardized) userspace sysfs interfaces.

Reading the code I see that this is what happens here, so please rewrite
this to be a real GPIO+LED driver using struct gpio_chip and
the same for LEDs.

Be inspired by drivers/gpio/* and drivers/leds/*
Yours,
Linus Walleij
