[PATCH v6 00/12] Device property improvements, add %pfw format specifier

From: Sakari Ailus

Hi all,

This set adds functionality into the device property API (counting a
node's parents as well as obtaining its name) in order to support printing
fwnode names using a new conversion specifier "%pfw". The names that are
produced are equivalent to its OF counterpart "%pOF" on OF systems for the
two supported modifiers ("f" and "P").

Printing a node's name is something that's been available on OF for a long
time and if something is converted to device property API (such as the
V4L2 fwnode framework) it always got removed of a nice feature that was
sometimes essential in debugging. With this set, that no longer is the

Note: the set now depends on 2d44d165e939 ("scsi: lpfc: Convert existing
%pf users to %ps") that is expected from the linux-scsi tree.

since v5:

- Added a patch to convert %pf to %ps in tools/lib/traceevent.c (first in
the set).

- Fix ReST syntax in Documentation/core-api/printk-formats.rst.

- Fix returning root swnode name in patch "device property: Add
fwnode_get_name for returning the name of a node". Use to_swnode()
directly as well in the same patch.

- Tests: take root node name into account, use direct indices and remove
the comma from the guardian entry.

- Add a comment on how fwnode_full_name_string() enumerates the nodes.

- Fix error string in fwnode_string().

- Move 'f' + default case as last in the switch in fwnode_string().

- Fix %pfw validation in checkpatch.pl.

since v4:

- Improved documentation for fwnode_get_nth_parent().

- Removed comma from the guardian entry in fwnode_pointer() testcase.

since v3:

- Remove underscores in argument name of fwnode_count_parents().

- Re-introduce "%pO?" error string.

- Unwrap a call to string() in fwnode_string().

- Removed a useless Depends-on: on a patch that was merged long ago.

- Unwrap a Fixes: line.

- Added a patch to move fwnode_get_parent() up to make the review of the
following patch easier.

since v2:

- Better comments in acpi_fwnode_get_name_prefix().

- Added swnode implementation.

- Fixed swnode refcounting in get_parent() ("swnode: Get reference to
parent swnode in get_parent op")

- Make argument to to_software_node() const (a new patch)

- Factored out confusingly named kobject_string() that had a single

- Cleaner fwnode_count_parents() implementation (as discussed in review).

- Made fwnode_count_parents() argument const.

- Added tests (last patch in the set).

since v1:

- Add patch to remove support for %pf and %pF (depends on another patch
removing all use of %pf and %pF) (now 4th patch)

- Fix kerneldoc argument documentation for fwnode_get_name (2nd patch)

- Align kerneldoc style with the rest of drivers/base/property.c (no extra
newline after function name)

- Make checkpatch.pl complain about "%pf" not followed by "w" (6th patch)

- WARN_ONCE() on use of invalid conversion specifiers ("%pf" not followed
by "w")
