Subject: [RFC PATCH 05/14] iio: core: register chardev only if needed
Date: Fri, 8 May 2020 16:53:39 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200508135348.15229-6-alexandru.ardelean@analog.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200508135348.15229-1-alexandru.ardelean@analog.com>

The final intent is to localize all buffer ops into the
industrialio-buffer.c file, to be able to add support for multiple buffers
per IIO device.

We only need a chardev if we need to support buffers and/or events.

With this change, a chardev will be created only if an IIO buffer is
attached OR an event_interface is configured.

Otherwise, no chardev will be created, and the IIO device will get
registered with the 'device_add()' call.

Quite a lot of IIO devices don't really need a chardev, so this is a minor
improvement to the IIO core, as the IIO device will take up (slightly)
fewer resources.

What's important to remember, is that removing a chardev also requires that
'indio_dev->dev.devt' to be initialized. If it is, a '/dev/iio:deviceX'
file will be created by the kernel, regardless of whether it has a chardev
attached to it or not.
If that field is not initialized, cdev_device_{add,del}() behave{s} like
device_{add,del}().

Also, since we plan to add more chardevs for IIO buffers, we need to
consider now a separate IDA object just for chardevs.
Currently, the only benefit is that chardev IDs will be continuous.
However, when adding a chardev per IIO buffer, the IDs for the chardev
could outpace the IDs for IIO devices, so these should be decoupled.
