Subject: RE: [PATCH v2] Expose Peak USB device id in sysfs via phys_port_name.


The display and the possibility to change this "device_number" is a current modification of the peak_usb driver. This modification will offer this possibility for all CAN - USB interfaces of PEAK-System.

However, it is planned to create new R/W entries for this (under /sys/class/net/canX/...) as is already the case in other USB - CAN interface drivers.

Objet : [PATCH v2] Expose Peak USB device id in sysfs via phys_port_name.

The Peak USB CAN adapters can be assigned a device id via the Peak
provided tools (pcan-settings). This id can currently not be set by the
upstream kernel drivers, but some devices expose this id already.

The id can be used for consistent naming of CAN interfaces regardless of
order of attachment or recognition on the system. The classical CAN Peak
USB adapters expose this id via bcdDevice (combined with another value)
on USB-level in the sysfs tree and this value is then available in
ID_REVISION from udev. This is not a feasible approach, when a single
USB device offers more than one CAN-interface, like e.g. the PCAN-USB
Pro FD devices.

This patch exposes those ids via the, up to now unused, netdevice sysfs
attribute phys_port_name as a simple decimal ASCII representation of the
id. phys_port_id was not used, since the default print functions from
net/core/net-sysfs.c output a hex-encoded binary value, which is
overkill for a one-byte device id, like this one.
