Subject: [PATCH] pwm: sl28cpld: fix getting driver data in pwm callbacks
Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2020 22:24:32 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Currently .get_state() and .apply() use dev_get_drvdata() on the struct
device related to the pwm chip. This only works after .probe() called
platform_set_drvdata() which in this driver happens only after
pwmchip_add() and so comes possibly too late.

Instead of setting the driver data earlier use the traditional
container_of approach as this way the driver data is conceptually and
computational nearer.

Fixes: 9db33d221efc ("pwm: Add support for sl28cpld PWM controller")
Signed-off-by: Uwe Kleine-König <>

in v4 of the driver Michael still used container_of and then changed to
use dev_get_drvdata() as Lee suggested. I didn't notice this suggestion,
otherwise I would have expressed my variance about this already earlier.

I noticed this problem because Michael contacted me via irc and showed
me the resulting oops, so I think applying this before 5.10 would be
good. It's not entirely clear to me why .get_state() is called that
early in his case, but the theory is clear: The callbacks can be called
as soon as pwmchip_add() is called.

Best regards
