SubjectRe: [PATCH v13 03/10] mux: minimal mux subsystem and gpio-based mux controller

Why have the gpio and mux core in the same patch?

And why does this depend on OF?

No Documentation/ABI/ update for your sysfs files? Please do so.

When your module is unloaded, you forgot to clean this structure up with
what was done with it.

You don't return PTR_ERR(-ENOMEM)? Ok, why not? (I'm not arguing for
it, just curious...)

Why are you not registering the device here as well? Why have this be a
two step process?

Did you run checkpatch.pl in strict mode on this new file? Please do so :)

Having devm functions that create/destroy other struct devices worries
me, do we have other examples of this happening today? Are you sure you
got the reference counting all correct?

How can this happen?

What can someone do with these WARN_ON() splats in the kernel log?

Why use a read/write lock at all? Have you tested this to verify it
really is faster and needed?

Oh that always scares me... Are you _sure_ this is correct? And
needed?

You require a lock to be held for a "global" function? Without
documentation? Or even a sparse marking? That's asking for trouble...

Even with subsys_initcall you are relying on link order, you do realize
that? What about other subsystems that rely on this? :)

Don't put kernel doc comments in a .h file, they normally go into the .c
file, next to the code itself. That makes it easier to fix up and
realise when they need to be changed when the code changes. The .h file
rarely changes.

Odd, then why is it exported???

I don't understand this note, what is a user of this api supposed to do
differently between 1 and 0? Why make the difference at all?

And I agree with the comment to split this up into 2 different .h files,
if possible.

thanks,
