[PATCH v6 7/8] iio: cdc: ad7150: relax return value check for IRQ get
Posted by Matti Vaittinen 9 months ago
fwnode_irq_get[_byname]() were changed to not return 0 anymore. The
special error case where device-tree based IRQ mapping fails can't no
longer be reliably detected from this return value. This yields a
functional change in the driver where the mapping failure is treated as
an error.

The mapping failure can occur for example when the device-tree IRQ
information translation call-back(s) (xlate) fail, IRQ domain is not
found, IRQ type conflicts, etc. In most cases this indicates an error in
the device-tree and special handling is not really required.

One more thing to note is that ACPI APIs do not return zero for any
failures so this special handling did only apply on device-tree based
systems.

Drop the special handling for DT mapping failures as these can no longer
be separated from other errors at driver side. Change all failures in
IRQ getting to be handled by continuing without the events instead of
aborting the probe upon certain errors.

Revision history:
v5 => v6:
 - Never abort the probe when IRQ getting fails but continue without
   events.

Please note that I don't have the hardware to test this change.
Furthermore, testing this type of device-tree error cases is not
trivial, as the question we probably dive in is "what happens with the
existing users who have errors in the device-tree". Answering to this
question is not simple.

The first patch of the series changes the fwnode_irq_get() so this depends
on the first patch of the series and should not be applied alone.

I think this is the best we can do, though ideally I'd like to have
seen errors due to not being provided by firmware passed through and
firmware bug issues (where it provides an irq we can't get for some reason
shouted about - with the driver failing to probe.)

Still, it's an improvement and for some FW old code wouldn't have
done this either. Hence let's go with this approach.
