Subject: [PATCH v2 1/4] counter: Internalize sysfs interface code

This is a reimplementation of the Generic Counter driver interface.
There are no modifications to the Counter subsystem userspace interface,
so existing userspace applications should continue to run seamlessly.

Overview
========

The purpose of this patch is to internalize the sysfs interface code
among the various counter drivers into a shared module. Counter drivers
pass and take data natively (i.e. u8, u64, char *, etc.) and the shared
counter module handles the translation between the sysfs interface. This
gurantees a standard userspace interface for all counter drivers, and
helps generalize the Generic Counter driver ABI in order to support the
Generic Counter chrdev interface (introduced in a subsequent patch)
without significant changes to the existing counter drivers.

A high-level view of how a count value is passed down from a counter
driver can be exemplified by the following:

There are three primary components involved:

	Counter device driver
	---------------------
	Communicates with the hardware device to read/write data; e.g.
	counter drivers for 104-quad-8, stm32-timer, etc.

	Counter core
	------------
	Registers the counter device driver to the system so that the
	respective callbacks are called during userspace interaction

	Counter sysfs
	-------------
	Translates counter data to the standard Counter sysfs interface
	format and vice versa

Driver ABI
==========

This reimplementation entails several changes to the driver ABI. In
particular, the device driver callbacks are now expected to handle
standard C datatypes rather than translating the sysfs I/O directly.

To that end, the struct counter_data structure is introduced to
establish counter extensions for Signals, Synapses, and Counts.

The "type" member specifies the type of high-level data (e.g. BOOL,
COUNT_DIRECTION, etc.) handled by this extension. The "*_read" and
"*_write" members can then be set by the counter device driver with
callbacks to handle that data using native C data types (i.e. u8, u64,
char *, etc.).

Convenience macros such as COUNTER_DATA_COUNT_U64 are provided for use
by driver authors. In particular, driver authors are expected to use
the provided macros for standard Counter subsystem attributes in order
to maintain a consistent interface for userspace. For example, a counter
device driver may define several standard attributes like so:

struct counter_data count_ext[] = {
	COUNTER_DATA_DIRECTION(count_direction_read),
	COUNTER_DATA_ENABLE(count_enable_read, count_enable_write),
	COUNTER_DATA_CEILING(count_ceiling_read, count_ceiling_write),
};

This makes it intuitive to see, add, and modify the attributes that are
supported by this driver ("direction", "enable", and "ceiling") and to
maintain this code without getting lost in a web of struct braces.

Callbacks must match the function type expected for the respective
component or extension. These function types are defined in the struct
counter_data structure as the "*_read" and "*_write" union members.

The corresponding callback prototypes for the extensions above would be:

int count_direction_read(struct counter_device *counter,
			 struct counter_count *count, u8 *direction);
int count_enable_read(struct counter_device *counter,
		      struct counter_count *count, u8 *enable);
int count_enable_write(struct counter_device *counter,
		       struct counter_count *count, u8 enable);
int count_ceiling_read(struct counter_device *counter,
		       struct counter_count *count, u64 *ceiling);
int count_ceiling_write(struct counter_device *counter,
			struct counter_count *count, u64 ceiling);

In this way, driver authors no longer need to mess with sysfs strings
and are instead able to focus on what they actually care about doing --
getting data to/from the devices -- while the Generic Counter interface
handles the translation of that data for them between the various
userspace interfaces (e.g. sysfs and chardev).

Architecture
============

Counter device registration is the same as before: drivers populate a
struct counter_device with components and callbacks, then pass the
structure to the devm_counter_register function. However, what's
different now is how the Counter subsystem code handles this
registration internally.

Whereas before callbacks would interact directly with sysfs data, this
interaction is now abstracted and instead callbacks interact with native
C data types. The counter_data structure forms the basis for Counter
extentions.

The counter-sysfs.c file contains the code to parse through the
counter_device structure and register the requested components and
extensions. Attributes are created and populated based on type, with
respective translation functions to handle the mapping between sysfs and
the counter driver callbacks.

The translation performed for each attribute is straightforward: the
attribute type and data is parsed from the counter_attribute structure,
the respective counter driver read/write callback is called, and sysfs
I/O is handled before or after the driver read/write function is called.
