SubjectRe: [PATCH 01/18] lirc core device driver infrastructure

n is the default, no needed add a "default n" line for it.

Anyone configuring the kernel should know he's on Linux, so strike the
Linux away :)

Obviously this can be built in, so it should be named better. Also I
don't think LIRC means anything to a user, so use Infrared Remote
Control support or something similar instead.

I don't quite understand why this needs a different option from
INPUT_LIRC.

No need for this in any semi-recent kernel.

That comment is not quite correct, just remove it.

Please don't mark funtion inline unless there's a very good reason for
it.

What's the init doing in a cleanup routine? Oh, you initialize it again
becaus of the static array. I think the right approach is to
dynamically allocate struct irctl.

The inline thing also applies here and in various other placez.

I guess success is a #define for 0? Just user 0 directly. Also the
kthread_stop here looks odd. The normal way to use kthreads is to
start them when bringing up an interface of some sorts, and call
kthread_stop when the interface is brought down. Doing it in a routine
like this screams "unclear lifetime rules".

No sleep on, please. But this one should be trivial to fix anyway, by
just changing this to a

set_current_state(TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE);
schedule();

and using wake_up_process in the wakeup path.

Yikes. This should use some form of more fine-grained wakeus.

Please add a kerneldoc comments for exported functions like this,
instead of the comments in the header.

No need for this, a null pointer derference should be a clear enough
warning for the writer of the broken pluging..

> +int lirc_unregister_plugin(int minor)

Why doesn't this one take a struct lirc_plugin pointer?

both completion seems unused.

kthread_stop already wakes the thread up.

The comment above looks superflous.

iminor.

in which case this 'plugin' should just install it's own fops. Thanks
to cdev_add we can install fops at minor number granularity.

->poll ust not sleep.

Yikes. All these should never really be null. But once you have a
struct file you should just use file->private_data.

Please move these out of line. And please document all the functions.
Or switch to a kfifo or the existing tty buffering helpers.

Please don't do you own spinlock wrappers.
