[PATCH 0/5] of: More 'device' vs. 'module' cleanups

From: Miquel Raynal
Date: Wed May 10 2023 - 11:48:14 EST


As part of a previous series, Rob suggested that keeping too much logic
in of/device.c was backward and would benefit from a gradual cleanup
with the hope some day to move the remaining helpers into inline
functions wrapping the proper of_*() methods.

A few of these "conversions" happened in the series I was originally
working on. At this time I actually wrote a few other changes,
completely unrelated to my original series, but still following Rob's
cleanup idea: here they are.

The last step of this series is to actually remove a copy of one of
these helpers which I think is not needed. This drivers/gpu/ patch
depends on the previous changes.

Thanks, Miquèl
