I'll run through it again. I am suspecting I must have deleted the "d"
in recording with a fat fingering when I was editing something else.

I will add the verbiage:
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called intel_pmt_crashlog.

I'll make another pass.

Arguably not much. I'll drop the comment.

The "control" flags are bits 28-31, while the disable flag is bit 27
if I recall.

Specifically bit 31 is read only, bit 28 will clear bit 31, bit 29
will cause the crashlog to be generated and set bit 31, and bit 30 is
just reserved 0.

I'll just drop the comments.

I guess they should be equivalent so I can probably just switch to count.

Okay. I can move it if you prefer.

I'll switch it.

Already fixed based on similar comments you had for the telemetry driver.. :-)

I can switch it if that is preferred.

So the issue lies in the complexity of pmt_telem_add_entry versus
pmt_crashlog_add_entry. Specifically I end up needing disc_res and the
discovery table when I go to create the controls for the crashlog
device. Similarly we have a third device that we plan to add called a
watcher which will require us to keep things split up like this so we
thought it best to split it up this way.

Again I am not sure what this is in reference to. If you can point me
to some documentation somewhere I can take a look.

Thanks.
