We have just passed this discussion for watchdog driver
here: https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/4/1/843

Are you ok with doing it in this way?

static inline u32 zynq_gpio_readreg(struct zynq_gpio *gpio, u32 offset)
{
return readl_relaxed(gpio->base_addr + offset);
}

static inline void zynq_gpio_writereg(struct zynq_gpio *gpio, u32 offset, u32 val)
{
writel_relaxed(val, gpio->base_addr + offset);
}

Or even like this to be able to handle error cases.

static inline int zynq_gpio_readreg(struct zynq_gpio *gpio, u32 offset, u32 *val)
{
*val = readl_relaxed(gpio->base_addr + offset);
return 0;
}

static inline int zynq_gpio_writereg(struct zynq_gpio *gpio, u32 offset, u32 val)
{
writel_relaxed(val, gpio->base_addr + offset);
return 0;
}

Thanks,
Michal
