From: Thierry Reding <treding@nvidia.com>

Some subsystems, such as pinctrl, allow continuing to defer probe
indefinitely. This is useful for devices that depend on resources
provided by devices that are only probed after the init stage.

One example of this can be seen on Tegra, where the DPAUX hardware
contains pinmuxing controls for pins that it shares with an I2C
controller. The I2C controller is typically used for communication
with a monitor over HDMI (DDC). However, other instances of the I2C
controller are used to access system critical components, such as a
PMIC. The I2C controller driver will therefore usually be a builtin
driver, whereas the DPAUX driver is part of the display driver that
is loaded from a module to avoid bloating the kernel image with all
of the DRM/KMS subsystem.

In this particular case the pins used by this I2C/DDC controller
become accessible very late in the boot process. However, since the
controller is only used in conjunction with display, that's not an
issue.

Unfortunately the driver core currently outputs a warning message
when a device fails to get the pinctrl before the end of the init
stage. That can be confusing for the user because it may sound like
an unwanted error occurred, whereas it's really an expected and
harmless situation.

In order to eliminate this warning, this patch allows callers of the
driver_deferred_probe_check_state() helper to specify that they want
to continue deferring probe, regardless of whether we're past the
init stage or not. All of the callers of that function are updated
for the new signature, but only the pinctrl subsystem passes a true
value in the new persist parameter if appropriate.

Changes in v2:
- pass persist flag via flags parameter to make the function call easier

What about calling this flag DRIVER_DEFER_PROBE_CONTINUE ?

Also, I would just say

@flags: Flags used to control the behavior of this function.

here and added the description of the flag below.

"unless DRIVER_DEFER_PROBE_CONTINUE is set in @flags"

> + * flag is set, -ETIMEDOUT if deferred probe debug timeout has expired, or
> + * -EPROBE_DEFER if none of those conditions are met.

And here:

"In that case, passing DRIVER_DEFER_PROBE_CONTINUE in @flags indicates
that the caller wants to keep trying to probe after built-in drivers
have had a chance to probe, which is useful for built-in drivers that
rely on resources provided by modular drivers."

Again, I said no odd flags for functions, how is anyone supposed to know
what "0" means here?

You just swapped a boolean for a bitmapped flag, right?  That did not
make the api any easier to understand at all.

In the future, please always use BIT() for stuff like this.

Anyway, this isn't ok, do it correctly please, like I asked for the
first time...

Technically you said "no boolean flags". And I think it's pretty common
to have this type of flag bitmask to change the behavior of functions. 0
is typically considered as the "run normally" case where you don't
really have to care.

Granted, the normal case isn't made any easier with "0" than with
"false", but certainly the cases where we do pass one or more flags are
now much easier to understand.

To avoid further back and forth, what exactly is it that you would have
me do? That is, what do you consider to be the correct way to do this?

Would you prefer me to add another function with a different name that
reimplements the functionality only with the exception? Something along
the lines of:

	int driver_deferred_probe_check_state_continue(struct device *dev)
	{
		int ret;

		ret = driver_deferred_probe_check_state(dev);
		if (ret == -ENODEV)
			return -EPROBE_DEFER;

		return ret;
	}

? I'd need to split that up some more to avoid the warning that the
inner function prints before returning -ENODEV, but that's a minor
detail. Would that API be more to your liking?

Well, why don't you do

static int deferred_probe_check_state_internal(struct device *dev)
{
        if (!initcalls_done)
                return -EPROBE_DEFER;

        if (!deferred_probe_timeout) {
                dev_WARN(dev, "deferred probe timeout, ignoring dependency");
                return -ETIMEDOUT;
        }

        return 0;
}

int driver_deferred_probe_check_state(struct device *dev)
{
        int ret = deferred_probe_check_state_internal(dev);

        if (ret)
                 return ret;

        dev_warn(dev, "ignoring dependency for device, assuming no driver");
        return -ENODEV;
}

int driver_deferred_probe_check_state_continue(struct device *dev)
{
        int ret = deferred_probe_check_state_internal(dev);

        if (ret)
                 return ret;

        return -EPROBE_DEFER;
}

Yes, that's much more sane.  Self-decribing apis are the key here, I did
not want a boolean flag, or any other flag, as part of the public api as
they do not describe what the call does at all.
