Subject[PATCH 3.4 010/134] pps: Add pps_lookup_dev() function
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: George Spelvin <linux@horizon.com>

commit 513b032c98b4b9414aa4e9b4a315cb1bf0380101 upstream.

The PPS serial line discipline wants to attach a PPS device to a tty
without changing the tty code to add a struct pps_device * pointer.

Since the number of PPS devices in a typical system is generally very low
(n=1 is by far the most common), it's practical to search the entire list
of allocated pps devices. (We capture the timestamp before the lookup,
so the timing isn't affected.)

It is a bit ugly that this function, which is part of the in-kernel
PPS API, has to be in pps.c as opposed to kapi,c, but that's not
something that affects users.
