Subject: [PATCH 0/4] regulator: devres: remove unused device-managed unregister APIs
Date: Fri, 25 Jun 2021 15:23:20 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210625122324.327585-1-aardelean@deviqon.com> (raw)

These APIs aren't used anywhere and most-likely exist because of the
general principle of C APIs, where if an API function does an
allocation/registration, it must also have an equivalent
deallocation/deregistration counterpart.
    
For devm_ functions this isn't all that true (for all cases), as the idea
of these function is to provide an auto-cleanup logic on drivers/system
de-init.
    
Removing these discourages any weird logic that could be created with
such an API functions.

Alexandru Ardelean (4):
  regulator: devres: remove devm_regulator_unregister_notifier()
    function
  regulator: devres: remove devm_regulator_unregister() function
  regulator: devres: remove
    devm_regulator_bulk_unregister_supply_alias()
  regulator: devres: unexport devm_regulator_unregister_supply_alias()
