[PATCH 00/15 v3] Regulator ena_gpiod fixups




Here is a third iteration of these fixups after thinking
over Marek's remarks on the v2 version.

Also available in git branch
gpio-descriptors-regulator-fixup in the GPIO git tree:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/linusw/linux-gpio.git/log/?h=gpio-descriptors-regulator-fixup

I added two fixup item to the list: making the gpiod
from of node respect nonexlusive flags and fixing the
shared regulators in devm_gpiod_get*.

To make sure GPIO descriptors are never left dangling
(as far as I can tell!) I use this stepwise approach:

1. Fix the regulator_register() in the core to guarantee
   that after calling this with a valid GPIO descriptor
   in ena_gpiod it will be gpiod_put() if there is any
   problem.

2. Fix up simple descriptor consumers to just gpiod_get()
   and let the core take over the descriptor. Only handle
   the errorpath up to this point.

3. Export gpiod_get_from_of_node() and let max77686
   obtain a GPIO descriptor from the device tree without
   any devres make-up in the DT parsing callback.

4. Make gpiod_get_from_of_node() respect the
   GPIOD_FLAGS_BIT_NONEXCLUSIVE flag.

5. Fix up devm_gpiod_get_* to respect the
   GPIOD_FLAGS_BIT_NONEXCLUSIVE flag.

6. Invent devm_gpiod_unhinge() that will remove the devres
   monitoring of a devm_* allocated GPIO descriptor
   right before handling it over to the regulator core,
   and use this in the otherwise hairy da9211,
   s5m8767, tps65090 and s2mps11 drivers.
