The encoder/decoder is, and should be, compilable on its own; so this
config option does ensure that the newly added c-file isn't just dead
code - although it's unlikely to matter in practice.

I don't see a reason for adding a QCOM_QMI_ENCDEC here and then rename
that in the following commit and I don't see a reason to split it in two
config options. So I think this is reasonable...

The idea is that users of these functions would "select"
QCOM_QMI_HELPERS.

I don't think there is a particular point in allowing the user to select
this without any of the clients and a "depends on" in the client just
results in the user being forced to find this option to be able to
enable any of the clients.

Nope.

Thanks, I have been looking for that document! Will update the comments
throughout the patch series.

Looks like it.

And this should go above the "return" description.

I agree, I'll run over the file again.

There are a few other style things that I would like to change, e.g.
replacing u32 with size_t in a bunch of places; but I also didn't want
to change too much from the downstream version.

But fixing the spacing in the initial commit makes sense.

This should be able to go in the next patch.

Agreed.

Unfortunately drivers/soc/qcom isn't built unless ARCH_QCOM is set, but
I would prefer that we sort that out and have client drivers trigger the
build of this as well.

For other drivers I've seen the benefit of Coverity running on the x86
target, so this would be nice to do here too.


Thanks for the review!
