Hi Peter,

Thanks for the patch and sorry for the late reply.

I'd rather prefer to check explicitly for -ENODEV (as the DMA is
optional) to use the IRQ mode and treat all other codes (including
EPROBE_DEFER) as errors.

Rationale is: This can hide other errors e.g. like all DMA channels are
busy/reserved for other usage. So the user may wrongly think it's
probing the driver, with DMA. This may be a corner case, but still...
DMA channels are assigned via device tree. I'd rather prefer to avoid
depending of runtime (probe ordering) in such a case.

Can you update the patch considering this ?

Please find here an alternate proposal:

adc->dma_chan = dma_request_chan(&indio_dev->dev, "rx");
if (IS_ERR(adc->dma_chan)) {
if (PTR_ERR(adc->dma_chan) != -ENODEV)
return PTR_ERR(adc->dma_chan);

/* DMA is optional: fall back to IRQ mode */
adc->dma_chan = NULL;
return 0;
}

Best regards,
Fabrice
