Subject: Re: [PATCH v6 02/11] powerpc/powernv: Autoload IMC device driver module

Hi all,

I'm trying to get my head around these patches - at this point I'm just
doing a first pass, so I may have more substantive structural comments
later on. In the mean time - here are some minor C nits:

Should these be bumped to 2017?

> +		} while (i < (pcni->size / PAGE_SIZE));
> +	}
I had to scroll back up to the top of this function to make sure I
understood what this loop does. Would it be better to write it as:

for (i = 0; i < (pcni->size / PAGE_SIZE); i++) {
    pages = PAGE_SIZE * i;
    pcni->vbase[i] = (u64)....
}

And, just checking - this is expected to work on both 4 and 64kB pages?

You're not releasing any resources here - would it be better to just
replace the gotos with this return? I haven't checked to see if you
change the function later on to allocate memory - if so please ignore :)

Should this function be tagged __init?
