[PATCH 1/4] amba: Export amba_bustype

From: Kim Phillips
Date: Tue May 08 2018 - 15:06:36 EST

This patch is provided in the context of allowing the Coresight driver
subsystem to be loaded as modules. Coresight uses amba_bus in its call
to bus_find_device() in of_coresight_get_endpoint_device() when
searching for a configurable endpoint device. This patch allows
Coresight to reference amba_bustype when built as a module.

There was a prior patch submitted by Alex W. here:


But I can't tell its fate - presume simply delayed?

Coresight uses amba_bus in its call to bus_find_device() here:


Grepping for bus_type and EXPORT shows other busses exporting their
type, so I don't think this is the wrong approach. If, OTOH, Coresight
needs to do something differently, please comment.
