Subject: [PATCH] interconnect: Disallow interconnect core to be built as a module
Date: Thu, 29 Aug 2019 13:37:29 +0530
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Building individual drivers as modules is fine but allowing a core
framework to be built as a module makes it really complex and should be

Whatever uses the interconnect core APIs must also be built as a module
if interconnect core is built as module, else we will see compilation

If another core framework (like cpufreq, clk, etc), that can't be built
as module, needs to use interconnect APIs then we will start seeing
compilation failures with allmodconfig configurations as the symbols
(like of_icc_get()) used in other frameworks will not be available in
the built-in image.

Disallow the interconnect core to be built as a module to avoid all
these issues.
