I was hoping to find an existing function, surely checking a region is
zeroed is a common thing, right?, so this was a place holder as much
as anything. Not sure memchr_inv fits the bill, but I'll give it a
try...

Really? I find that the post-decrement in the while makes determining the
bounds of the loop more confusing.

I agree the casting is hideous, but I thought the outcome was correct
as it is manipulating addresses, not data.
You think the address of a 64-bit differs based on endian??
Happy to change it - but not sure what to.

Same comments as per above.

Actually, no. The line_free is also used to clean up construction
failures, so the line may be partially constructed. num_descs is set
first, but the descs themselves may have failed to allocate.
And gpiod_free throws a warning if you pass a NULL, hence the extra check here.

That was a cut-and-paste from V1...

... and changing it would result in this logic behaving differently.
You couldn't distinguish between consumer not being set, and
so label not being set, and kstrndup returning NULL due to no mem.

Again, a cut-and-paste from V1, and I have no experience with
tracepoints or events, so I have no opinion on that.

So, yeah - perhaps?

Cheers,
Kent.
