Subject: Re: [RFC PATCH] gpiolib: Move setting the flow handler and don't set
 it at all if there is a parent domain

Hi Daniel,

thanks for your patch!

If Marc says this is the way to go I think it is the way to go!

Please just exit on error so invert this.

if (ret)
  return ret;

and just de-indent the below code (easier to follow)

Should we print an error if girq->handler is not NULL and we find
a parent domain, like
if (d->parent && girq->handler)
  dev_err(dev, "parent domain and flow handler both specified\n");
