SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 19/23] drivers/fsi: Add GPIO based FSI master

Hi Chris,

I think what Joel meant there was that we have it per *GPIO* master; if
there are two GPIO masters on a system, there's no need to provide
mutual exclusion to each (separate) set of GPIOs.

To implement this, we'd just move the lock into struct fsi_master_gpio.

Cheers,


Jeremy
