Subject: Re: [PATCH v3] usb:serial:pl2303: add GPIOs interface on PL2303

Hi,

Did some more review, sorry ;)

Could this be made static const? (since it's for one-time copy purposes only)

Most frequently accessed member at first position - good.

Nicely cast-avoiding helper :)

Perhaps the index line should better be moved
right before the pl2303_vendor_write() line,
to more obviously hint at why it's "input mode"
(but OTOH currently you're cleanly initializing things in correct member order,
so it's probably better to keep it that way).

Also, it's perhaps a better idea to do this initial init call
via calls of actual GPIO API rather than implementation-specific call
(e.g. that way one could simple reuse the generic GPIO call for devices
which happen to implement GPIO via a different mechanism...).
(hmm, nope, from a layering POV it's not recommendable,
since we clearly are at hardware-specific init here,
where you want to firmly guarantee
that the hardware is directly and fully initialized).


Since there are several repeated
pl2303_vendor_write(...serial, 1, ...index) calls,
it's possibly a good idea to wrap these calls in a convenience
pl2303_gpio_state_update(gpio)
This would also increase GPIO hardware abstraction,
by then simply having to provide an alternative for this single function
if needed.
Also, it may (depending on the number of callers,
which is on the low side here unfortunately)
reduce instruction cache footprint.


So these are my additional thoughts about the implementation,
which you may or may not choose to adopt.

HTH,

Andreas Mohr
