      hwspinlock/core/omap: fix id issues on multiple hwspinlock devices · c3c1250e
      Ohad Ben-Cohen authored
      hwspinlock devices provide system-wide hardware locks that are used
      by remote processors that have no other way to achieve synchronization.
      
      To achieve that, each physical lock must have a system-wide id number
      that is agreed upon, otherwise remote processors can't possibly assume
      they're using the same hardware lock.
      
      Usually boards have a single hwspinlock device, which provides several
      hwspinlocks, and in this case, they can be trivially numbered 0 to
      (num-of-locks - 1).
      
      In case boards have several hwspinlocks devices, a different base id
      should be used for each hwspinlock device (they can't all use 0 as
      a starting id!).
      
      While this is certainly not common, it's just plain wrong to just
      silently use 0 as a base id whenever the hwspinlock driver is probed.
      
      This patch provides a hwspinlock_pdata structure, that boards can use
      to set a different base id for each of the hwspinlock devices they may
      have, and demonstrates how to use it with the omap hwspinlock driver.
      
      While we're at it, make sure the hwspinlock core prints an explicit
      error message in case an hwspinlock is registered with an id number
      that already exists; this will help users catch such base id issues.

      hwspinlock/omap: simplify allocation scheme · c97f6dd0
      Ohad Ben-Cohen authored
      Instead of allocating every hwspinlock separately, allocate
      them all in one shot.
      
      This both simplifies the driver and helps achieving better
      slab utilization.

      hwspinlock/core: simplify 'owner' handling · e467b642
      Ohad Ben-Cohen authored
      Use struct device_driver's owner member instead of asking drivers to
      explicitly pass the owner again.
      
      This simplifies drivers and also save some memory, since there's no
      point now in maintaining a separate owner pointer per hwspinlock.

      hwspinlock/core: simplify Kconfig · 315d8f5c
      Ohad Ben-Cohen authored
      Simplify hwspinlock's Kconfig by making the global CONFIG_HWSPINLOCK
      entry invisible; users will just select it when needed.
      
      This also prepares the ground for adding hwspinlock support for other
      platforms (the 'depends on ARCH_OMAP4' was rather hideous, and while
      we're at it, a dedicated menu is added).
