SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 13/28] thunderbolt: Add helper function to iterate from one port to another

These names seem fairly generic, they might as well refer to the next port
on a switch or iterate over the ports on a switch. E.g. I've proposed a
tb_sw_for_each_port() macro in this patch:

https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/983863/

I'd suggest renaming tb_port_get_next() to something like
tb_next_port_on_path() or tb_path_next_port() or tb_path_walk().

And I'd suggest dropping tb_for_each_port() because there are only
two occurrences where it's used, one calculates the path length,
and I think that's simply the route string length plus 2, and the
other one in patch 17 isn't even interested in the ports along a path,
but rather in the switches between the root switch and the end of a path.
It seems simpler to just iterate from the switch at the end upwards to
the root switch by following the parent pointer in the switch's
struct device, or alternatively by bytewise iterating over the route
string and calling get_switch_at_route() each time.

This sounds as if NULL is returned if an error occurs but that doesn't
seem to be what the function does. I'd suggest:

"If the @end port has been reached, return %NULL."

"Switch back" requires that you switched to something else before,
which you didn't. I'd suggest something like:

"use primary link to discover next port"

Why is it necessary to use the primary link anyway? Is the
->remote member not set on the secondary link port? The reason
should probably be spelled out in the code comment.

Can we use "if (!tb_is_upstream_port(port))" for consistency with the
if-clause below?

> + next = tb_port_at(tb_route(end->sw), port->sw);

The else-clause here appears to be dead code, you've already checked
further up whether prev and end are on the same switch.

*Here* a "switch back" comment would be appropriate. Nit: Please either
end code comments with a period or don't start them with an upper case
letter.

Thanks,
