SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 1/2] powerpc: Detect the presence of big-cores via "ibm,thread-groups"

Why do we need EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL?

Shouldnt we check for property and nr_groups
If the property is not 1 and nr_groups < 1, we should error out
No point in calling a of_property read if property is not right.


Nit:
Cant we directly assign to tg->property, and hence avoid local
variables, property, nr_groups and threads_per_group?

Can avoid these check if we can check in parse_thread_groups.

Here we need to check for validity of dn and error out accordingly.

Did we miss a of_node_put(dn)?

Here, we are making the assumption that group_start will always be the
first thread in the thread_group. However we didnt make the same
assumption in get_cpu_thread_group_start.
