Subject: [PATCHv4 0/9] Thermal Framework Enhancements
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 1st October 2013 18:37:59 UTC (over 3 years ago)
This patch set is a v4 of the previous versions submitted here:
[v3]: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/2/5/228

[v2]: http://lwn.net/Articles/531720/
[v1]: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/18/108


This patch set is based on Rui's -next tree, on top
of commit 'f61d5b4d52e077756ce9dbc47ce737da898ad01d'
This is tested on a Core-i5 and an Atom netbook,
running ubuntu 12.04.

Changes since v3:
 * Added a patch to conditionally do kfree(cdev) in
   thermal_release function.
 * Reworked all sysfs attributes to have one value per file
   This includes sensor_trip_* and map_weight* attributes.
 * Added 'lock' variable in thermal_zone structure to
   protect its members.
 * Added Documentation to all functions in thermal_core.c
 * Changes all strcpy() to strlcpy()
 * Used devm_kzalloc() in places where applicable
 * Address some buffer overflow conditions and contentions
   in tz->sensors[] and tz->cdevs[].
Changes since v2:
 * Reworked the map sysfs attributes in patch [5/8]
 * Dropped configuration for maximum sensors and
   cooling devices, through Kconfig.
 * Added __remove_trip_attr method
 * Renamed __clean_map_entry to __remove_map_entry
   for consistency in naming.
Changes Since v1:
 * Removed kobject creation for thermal_trip and thermal_map
   nodes as per Greg-KH's comments.
 * Added ABI Documentation under 'testing'.
 * Modified the GET_INDEX macro to be more linux-like, thanks
   to Joe Perches.
 * Added get_[sensor/cdev]_by_name APIs to thermal.h

This series contains 9 patches:
Patch 1/9: Fixes a kfree issue. This is required so that the new sensor
	   and zone devices are not freed accidently.
	   We can do two things here:
	   1) Conditionally free every device
	   2) Remove this _release function, and free the memory
              in corresponding _unregister functions.
	   I prefer 2) and we can have this as a separate patch
	   outside this series; but would like to see the opinion
	   of maintainers'.
Patch 2/9: Creates new sensor level APIs
Patch 3/9: Creates new zone level APIs. The existing tzd structure is
           kept as such for clarity and compatibility purposes.
Patch 4/9: Creates functions to add/remove a cdev to/from a zone. The
           existing tcd structure need not be modified.
Patch 5/9: Adds sensorX_trip_[active/passive/hot/critical] sysfs nodes,
	   under /sys/class/thermal/zoneY/. This exposes various trip
           points for sensorX present in zoneY.
Patch 6/9: Adds mapY_* sysfs node. These attributes represent
Patch 7/9: Creates Documentation for the new APIs. A new file is
           created for clarity. Final goal is to merge with the existing
           file or refactor the files, as whatever seems appropriate.
Patch 8/9: Add ABI documentation for sysfs interfaces introduced in this
Patch 9/9: A dummy driver that can be used for testing. This is not for

Sorry for the long delay in resubmitting this patch set.
