Subject[PATCH 2/2] staging: comedi: ni_routes: allow partial routing information
Date
This patch fixes a regression on setting up asynchronous commands to use
external trigger sources when board-specific routing information is
missing.

`ni_find_device_routes()` (called via `ni_assign_device_routes()`) finds
the table of register values for the device family and the set of valid
routes for the specific board. If both are found,
`tables->route_values` is set to point to the table of register values
for the device family and `tables->valid_routes` is set to point to the
list of valid routes for the specific board. If either is not found,
both `tables->route_values` and `tables->valid_routes` are left set at
their initial null values (initialized by `ni_assign_device_routes()`)
and the function returns `-ENODATA`.

Returning an error results in some routing functionality being disabled.
Unfortunately, leaving `table->route_values` set to `NULL` also breaks
the setting up of asynchronous commands that are configured to use
external trigger sources. Calls to `ni_check_trigger_arg()` or
`ni_check_trigger_arg_roffs()` while checking the asynchronous command
set-up would result in a null pointer dereference if
`table->route_values` is `NULL`. The null pointer dereference is fixed
in another patch, but it now results in failure to set up the
asynchronous command. That is a regression from the behavior prior to
commit 347e244884c3 ("staging: comedi: tio: implement global tio/ctr
routing") and commit 56d0b826d39f ("staging: comedi: ni_mio_common:
implement new routing for TRIG_EXT").

Change `ni_find_device_routes()` to set `tables->route_values` and/or
`tables->valid_routes` to valid information even if the other one can
only be set to `NULL` due to missing information. The function will
still return an error in that case. This should result in
`tables->valid_routes` being valid for all currently supported device
families even if the board-specific routing information is missing.
That should be enough to fix the regression on setting up asynchronous
commands to use external triggers for boards with missing routing
information.
