Hi Rob,

I apologize, I should have CC you on the rest of the patchset to give
you a better idea of the context of this particular patch. Benjamin
Gaignard authored this particular patch, so I'll leave it up to him to
respond to your inline comments, but I can at least provide a brief
history of the revisions of this patchset as a whole.

This patchset introduces a "Generic Counter" interface for drivers to
support various counter devices (tally counters, rotary encoders, etc.).
The v1 revision was submitted on 31 July 2017
(https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/7/31/514) as a wrapper over existing
IIO functionality. This implementation design was unsuitable for the
needs of Generic Counter API, so the v4 revision submitted on 14
December 2017 reimplemented the Generic Counter API as its own Counter
subsystem (https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/12/14/778).

The v5 revision was submitted on 9 March 2018
(https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/9/728) and introduced the STM32 Timer
quadrature encoder driver with Generic Counter interface support. I
should have CC you in that revision to comment on the dt-bindings patch,
but I overlooked it, so I made sure to CC you on this v6 revision.
