Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] GPIO driver for Maxim MAX3191x
GPIO driver for Maxim MAX31910, MAX31911, MAX31912, MAX31913,
MAX31953 and MAX31963 industrial serializer, a daisy-chainable
chip to make 8 digital 24V inputs available via SPI. Supports
CRC checksums to guard against electromagnetic interference,
as well as undervoltage and overtemperature detection.

The chip is used by the "Revolution Pi" family of open source PLCs
based on the Raspberry Pi (

In a typical SCADA system, all input signals are read periodically,
say, every 5 or 10 ms, and stored in a so-called "process image".
To make this perform well with serializers, add a ->get_multiple
callback to struct gpio_chip, add corresponding consumer functions
and wire it up with linehandle_ioctl().

Changes v1 -> v2:

- Patch [1/5]: Change the argument order of assign_bit() to reflect
traditional "dst = src" in C. (Peter Zijlstra)

- Patch [2/5]: Update documentation. (Linus Walleij)
Drop const qualifier from struct gpio_desc ** in all function
signatures to avoid a cast when passing a non-const array created
with gpiod_get_array(), which is likely the most common use case.

- Patch [3/5]: Newly inserted patch to introduce common property for
number of daisy-chained devices.

- Patch [4/5]: Add vendor prefix to GPIO identifiers, use boolean
instead of integer to select mode, rename boolean to ignore
undervoltage alarms, separate compatible strings with newlines.
(Rob Herring)

- Patch [5/5]: Optimize algorithm in max3191x_get_multiple() to
iterate over the bits in the mask, instead of iterating over every
chip, thus implicitly skipping chips which are not selected at all
by the mask.
Support configurations where all chips in a daisy-chain share the
same modesel, fault or debounce pin.
Verify that the number of db0 and db1 GPIOs specified in the DT is
