Subject[RFC PATCH 0/7] AC97 device/driver model revamp
Date
It all started in the pxa device-tree submission here :
https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/2/25/965
It will be maintained in :
git fetch https://github.com/rjarzmik/linux.git work/ac97

And now it transformed into this RFC, which would bring a ground for AC'97
devices closer to the linux device/driver model.

This is just an RFC to see if we understand each other Mark.

Amongst the driving ideas behind this RFC :
- use device/driver model for AC'97
device/driver binding is based on vendor_id{1,2}
- use auto-probe of the AC'97 bus to enumerate codecs and create devices
- be compatible with previous platform_data model for codecs
=> this enables a smooth transition, where a codec (here wm9713) can
be used either through platform_device or automatic discovery
- struct snd_ac97 is not used
This structure is really heavy, and doesn't represent an AC97 device, but
rather an AC'97 codec internals IIUC.
I think it's right place would be in include/sound/ac97/codec.h.
This is also a problem for regmap adherence, hence the
include/sound/ac97/compat.h.
- a new AC'97 bus Kconfig is created
This was done for a smooth transition ... let's see if it's a good idea.
- split the AC'97 into :
- the codec
- the digital controller
- the bus

Amongst the things that are not all touched yet :
- ac97_codec.c
The generic AC'97 codec in sound/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c has really a lot
features, which are not at all PCI related. They could be transfered to
sound/ac97, without the pci specific field.
=> this deserves a deep ahead thinking, which I'll do if the current approach
is accepted by the communauty.

The most important patch is 2/7 "ALSA: ac97: add an ac97 bus". This is the main
evaluation point for the serie, the others are here so that I can test it all.

Well, this is a long term effort, which might need a complete rewrite according
to the comments it'll get. Let's expose it for comments and see how I can
progress with it.

Cheers.
