Subject: [PATCH] gpiolib: Fix error message on out-of-range GPIO in lookup table
Date: Wed, 27 Nov 2019 10:59:19 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When a GPIO offset in a lookup table is out-of-range, the printed error
message (1) does not include the actual out-of-range value, and (2)
contains an off-by-one error in the upper bound.

Avoid user confusion by also printing the actual GPIO offset, and
correcting the upper bound of the range.
While at it, use "%u" for unsigned int.

Sample impact:

    -requested GPIO 0 is out of range [0..32] for chip e6052000.gpio
    +requested GPIO 0 (45) is out of range [0..31] for chip e6052000.gpio

Fixes: 2a3cf6a3599e9015 ("gpiolib: return -ENOENT if no GPIO mapping exists")
