SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 1/9] pinctrl: mvebu: pinctrl driver core
Hello Sebastian,

Sorry for getting back to you so late about this patch set. I have been
very busy with other things.

Even though I have gone through your discussion with Stephen Warren on
this, I don't get what you have done exactly, and I'm even more puzzled
by the following piece of code:

What is this supposed to do? It allocates an array prefunc, whose
reference is only stored in a local variable, and anywhere else, so
basically it does nothing except leaking memory unless I got it wrong.

Moreover, this array has only one entry, while the loop accesses
several entries, which probably explains the crash I'm seeing at boot
time:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b

I'd like to fix that myself, but I really don't understand what the
"functions" word mean now in this v3, as compared to v1/v2 of this
patch set. Could you enlighten me on this?

Thanks!
