Agreed, I'd also prefer your proposed code over Grant's macros.

Yes, just don't do any concatenation to generate the names of the called
functions, i.e.

	return fwnode_call(of_property_read_u32, acpi_dev_prop_read, DEV_PROP_U32, node, propname, val);

is better than

	return fwnode_call(u32, DEV_PROP_U32, node, propname, val);

because it's easier to understand the call chain.
