Subject: [PATCH 1/2] hwmon: core: add thermal sensors only if dev->of_node is present
Date: Fri, 17 May 2019 16:13:36 -0700
Message-ID: <20190517231337.27859-2-eduval@amazon.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190517231337.27859-1-eduval@amazon.com>

Drivers may register to hwmon and request for also registering
with the thermal subsystem (HWMON_C_REGISTER_TZ). However,
some of these driver, e.g. marvell phy, may be probed from
Device Tree or being dynamically allocated, and in the later
case, it will not have a dev->of_node entry.

Registering with hwmon without the dev->of_node may result in
different outcomes depending on the device tree, which may
be a bit misleading. If the device tree blob has no 'thermal-zones'
node, the *hwmon_device_register*() family functions are going
to gracefully succeed, because of-thermal,
*thermal_zone_of_sensor_register() return -ENODEV in this case,
and the hwmon error path handles this error code as success to
cover for the case where CONFIG_THERMAL_OF is not set.
However, if the device tree blob has the 'thermal-zones'
entry, the *hwmon_device_register*() will always fail on callers
with no dev->of_node, propagating -EINVAL.

If dev->of_node is not present, calling of-thermal does not
make sense. For this reason, this patch checks first if the
device has a of_node before going over the process of registering
with the thermal subsystem of-thermal interface. And in this case,
when a caller of *hwmon_device_register*() with HWMON_C_REGISTER_TZ
and no dev->of_node will still register with hwmon, but not with
the thermal subsystem. If all the hwmon part bits are in place,
the registration will succeed.
