[PATCH 4.14 076/246] mfd: cros_ec: Fail early if we cannot identify the EC

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Aug 01 2018 - 13:59:26 EST

4.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Vincent Palatin <vpalatin@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 0dbbf25561b29ffab5ba6277429760abdf49ceff ]

If we cannot communicate with the EC chip to detect the protocol version
and its features, it's very likely useless to continue. Else we will
commit all kind of uninformed mistakes (using the wrong protocol, the
wrong buffer size, mixing the EC with other chips).
