I think this is wrong and probably unneeded. In ocxl (and I would assume
most drivers), we separate pretty clearly what is setup by the driver
framework when a device is probed, and what is allocated by the users
(userland or scm). Contexts are allocated by the users. So they should
be freed by them only. That separation is also why we have some
reference counting on the afu and function structs, to make sure the
core data remains valid for as long as required.
Though it's a bit asking for troubles, it can be seen when unbinding a
function from the driver through sysfs. That will end up calling
ocxl_function_close() and therefore ocxl_context_detach_all(). However
it's possible for a user process to still have a file descriptor opened.
The context is detached and marked as CLOSED, so any interaction with it
from the user will fail, but it should still be allocated so that it is
valid if the user process makes a system call to the driver. The context
will be freed when the file descriptor is closed.
I don't think this is needed for scm either, since you've now added the
context detach and free call in free_scm()
I would just drop this patch.
