Subject[PATCH v2 4/7] drivers/base: Add interface framework
Date
From: Thierry Reding <treding@nvidia.com>

Some drivers, such as graphics drivers in the DRM subsystem, do not have
a real device that they can bind to. They are often composed of several
devices, each having their own driver. The master/component framework
can be used in these situations to collect the devices pertaining to one
logical device, wait until all of them have registered and then bind
them all at once.

For some situations this is only a partial solution. An implementation
of a master still needs to be registered with the system somehow. Many
drivers currently resort to creating a dummy device that a driver can
bind to and register the master against. This is problematic since it
requires (and presumes) knowledge about the system within drivers.

Furthermore there are setups where a suitable device already exists, but
is already bound to a driver. For example, on Tegra the following device
tree extract (simplified) represents the host1x device along with child
devices:

host1x {
display-controller {
...
};
display-controller {
...
};
hdmi {
...
};
dsi {
...
};
csi {
...
};
video-input {
...
};
};
Each of the child devices is in turn a client of host1x, in that it can
request resources (command stream DMA channels and syncpoints) from it.
To implement the DMA channel and syncpoint infrastructure, host1x comes
with its own driver. Children are implemented in separate drivers. In
Linux this set of devices would be exposed by DRM and V4L2 drivers.

However, neither the DRM nor the V4L2 drivers have a single device that
they can bind to. The DRM device is composed of the display controllers
and the various output devices, whereas the V4L2 device is composed of
one or more video input devices.

This patch introduces the concept of an interface and drivers that can
bind to a given interface. An interface can be exposed by any device,
and interface drivers can bind to these interfaces. Multiple drivers can
bind against a single interface. When a device is removed, interfaces
exposed by it will be removed as well, thereby removing the drivers that
were bound to those interfaces.

In the example above, the host1x device would expose the "tegra-host1x"
interface. DRM and V4L2 drivers can then bind to that interface and
instantiate the respective subsystem objects from there.

Note that I'd like to merge this through the Tegra DRM tree so that the
changes to the Tegra DRM driver later in this series can be merged at
the same time and are not delayed for another release cycle.
In particular that means that I'm looking for an Acked-by from Greg.
