SubjectRe: [PATCH anybus v3 0/6] Support HMS Profinet Card over Anybus
Arnd, Rob, Linus,

Many thanks for your constructive feedback so far !

Is there anything in general about this set that would prevent it from being
mainlined? Perhaps I am trying to do too much at once, dropping a patchset
that is too complex to be properly reviewed?

I've been thinking about reworking the host to its simplest, yet feature-
complete form. Just serialize all card accesses with a single lock.
Then the kernel thread, kqueue, kcache, kref etc would all disappear.
The price we pay is a reduction in performance/parallelism.
We could then increase parallelism at a later stage.
Would that be of any help?

Comments on v3 will go into v4 shortly.
(Rob, I'm not sure how to address your feedback, other than to s/host/slot/g ?)

Yours,
Sven
