Subject: [PATCH 0/8] power_supply: Add API for safe access of get_property-like
 function attrs

Hi,


After fixing issue with referencing old power supply after driver
unbind in charger manager [1] I noticed that the race condition in such
case may still exist. It would be harder to trigger but still possible.

The race is between using a reference to power supply (obtained
with power_supply_get_by_name()) and removing the driver.

This patchset aims to fix the race by introducing wrappers for
accessing the power supply function attributes.

Patch 1 introduces new API. Other patches replace direct calls in
drivers.

Rebased on next-20141007.
Tested on Trats2 board (max77693 + charger manager).


Kindly asking for reviewing/testing the drivers, although the changes
are straightforward.


Best regards,
Krzysztof
