Hello,

this is v7 of a series adding support for tty triggers. See patch 3 for
how to use it. The first two patches provide the necessary
infrastructure in the tty subsystem to make the trigger possible.

Changes compared to v6 sent with Message-Id:
20200213091600.554-1-uwe@kleine-koenig.org on 13 Feb 2020:

 - use the tty's name instead of its major:minor
 - drop kstrtodev_t helper
 - retry opening the tty in case it only appears after it was configured
   in the trigger

Uwe Kleine-König (3):
  tty: rename tty_kopen() and add new function tty_kopen_shared()
  tty: new helper function tty_get_icount()
  leds: trigger: implement a tty trigger

Introduce a new function tty_kopen_shared() that yields a struct
tty_struct. The semantic difference to tty_kopen() is that the tty is
expected to be used already. So rename tty_kopen() to
tty_kopen_exclusive() for clearness, adapt the single user and put the
common code in a new static helper function.

tty_kopen_shared is to be used to implement an LED trigger for tty
devices in one of the next patches.

For a given struct tty_struct this yields the corresponding statistics
about sent and received characters (and some more) which is needed to
implement an LED trigger for tty devices.

The new function is then used to simplify tty_tiocgicount().

Usage is as follows:

	myled=ledname
	tty=ttyS0

	echo tty > /sys/class/leds/$myled/trigger
	echo $tty > /sys/class/leds/$myled/ttyname

. When this new trigger is active it periodically checks the tty's
statistics and when it changed since the last check the led is flashed
once.

No it is not, that's up to the developer.

That's up to the developer of the code, not the maintainer, as the
maintainer is not the copyright holder of it.  For new files, it is up
to the author of that code.  No maintainer should impose a license rule
like this on their subsystem, that's just not ok at all.  The only
"rule" is that it is compatible with GPLv2, nothing else.

No, see for example device tree rules.

Plus, IIRC it was you who asked the developer to "doublecheck with
their legal" when you seen GPL-2.0+. You can't really prevent me from
doing the same.

Note, I don't agree with that rule, and if you have noticed, it's not
really enforced.

Asking to verify that a specific license is what they really want it to
be and they know the ramifications of it is NOT the same as saying "For
code in the subsystem I maintain it has to be GPLv2+".

My employer requests GPL-2.0-only for kernel code.

What is "this"? The msleep? Calling led_set_brightness? What would you
recommend instead? Maybe led_set_brightness_nosleep()?

Haven't looked at the latest proposal in detail, but this looks broken
as you can potentially loop indefinitely in a worker thread, and with no
way to stop the trigger (delayed work).

I don't think that potentially looping indefinitely is a problem, but
indeed it should drop the lock during each iteration. Will think about
how to adapt.

Thanks

You musn't queue work that can run for long on the global shared
workqueue as it affects flushing:

	* system_wq is the one used by schedule[_delayed]_work[_on]().
	* Multi-CPU multi-threaded.  There are users which expect relatively
	* short queue flush time.  Don't queue works which can run for too
	* long.

Work that potentially run indefinitely is an absolute no-no. :)
