[PATCH v2 0/2] iio: Add parent_trigger attribute to triggers

From: Benjamin Gaignard
Date: Thu Feb 16 2017 - 09:23:21 EST

version 2:
- Do not automatically set parent_trigger attribute on all triggers.
Let driver decide to use it.
- Improve documentation of parent_trigger
- Improve slave modes documentation

Thoses patches add parent_trigger attribute to IIO triggers.
Parent trigger edges or levels could be used to control current
trigger for example to start, stop or reset it.

Similary to what already exist to validate a device, a new (optional)
validate_trigger function is added in iio_trigger structure and should be
filled by drivers.

For STM32 triggers parent trigger edges or levels could used in various ways.
To be able to select them "slave_mode" attribute is added to STM32 triggers.
For example the combinaison of parent_trigger and slave_mode allows to start
a trigger only when parent trigger level is high or to reset it on parent
trigger rising edge.

Benjamin Gaignard (2):
iio: Allow triggers to be used as parent of others triggers
iio: stm32 trigger: Implement parent trigger feature
