Subject: [PATCH v6 00/20] gpio: cdev: add uAPI v2

This patchset defines and implements a new version of the
GPIO CDEV uAPI to address existing 32/64-bit alignment issues, add
support for debounce, event sequence numbers, and allow for requested
lines with different configurations.
It provides some future proofing by adding optional configuration fields
and padding reserved for future use.

The series can be partitioned into three blocks; the first two patches
are minor fixes that impact later patches, the next eleven contain the
v2 uAPI definition and implementation, and the final seven port the GPIO
tools to the v2 uAPI and extend them to use new uAPI features.

The more complicated patches include their own commentary where


Changes for v6:
 - flags variable in linereq_create() should be u64 not unsigned long
   (patch 07)
 - remove restrictions on configuration changes - any change from one
   valid state to another valid state is allowed. (patches 09, 10, 12)

Changes for v5:

All changes for v5 fix issues with the gpiolib-cdev.c implementation,
in patches 07-12.
The uAPI is unchanged from v4, as is the port of the tools.

 - use IS_ALIGNED in BUILD_BUG_ON checks (patch 07)
 - relocate BUILD_BUG_ON checks to gpiolib_cdev_register (patch 07)
 - s/requies/requires/ (patch 07)
 - use unsigned int for variables that are never negative
 - change lineinfo_get() parameter from cmd to bool watch (patch 08)
 - flagsv2 in gpio_v2_line_info_to_v1() should be u64, not int (patch 08)
 - change "_locked" suffixed function names to "_unlocked" (patch 10 and
 - be less eager breaking long lines
 - move commentary into checkin comment where appropriate - particularly
   patch 12
 - restructure the request/line split - rename struct line to
   struct linereq, and struct edge_detector to struct line, and relocate
   the desc field from linereq to line.  The linereq name was selected
   over line_request as function names such as linereq_set_values() are
   more clearly associated with requests than line_request_set_values(),
   particularly as there is also a struct line.  And linereq is as
   informative as linerequest, so I went with the shortened form.
Changes for v4:
 - bitmap width clarification in gpiod.h (patch 04)
 - fix info offset initialisation bug (patch 08 and inserting patch 01)
 - replace strncpy with strscpy to remove compiler warnings
   (patch 08 and inserting patch 02)
 - fix mask handling in line_get_values (patch 07)

Changes for v3:
 - disabling the character device from the build requires EXPERT
 - uAPI revisions (see patch 02)
 - replace padding_not_zeroed with calls to memchr_inv
 - don't use bitops on 64-bit flags as that doesn't work on BE-32
 - accept first attribute matching a line in gpio_v2_line_config.attrs
   rather than the last
 - rework lsgpio port to uAPI v2 as flags reverted to v1 like layout
   (since patch v2)
 - swapped patches 17 and 18 to apply debounce to multiple monitored

Changes for v2:
 - split out cleanup patches into a separate series.
 - split implementation patch into a patch for each ioctl or major feature.
 - split tool port patch into a patch per tool.
 - rework uAPI to allow requested lines with different configurations.
