This patch series adds support for Analog Device's AD242x A2B
transceivers.

  https://www.analog.com/media/en/technical-documentation/user-guides/AD242x_TRM_Rev1.1.pdf

These transceivers are used to form an audio network by connecting the
parts in a daisy-chain. On top of audio, the devices expose some other
functions such as GPIO, programmable clock outputs and remote-side I2C
bus master. The first node in the chain is called the master node, and
all other devices are called slave nodes. Up to 15 such devices can be
connected this way.

The master device responds on two addresses on the I2C bus. The primary
one is used to access all registers in the master node itself, the
secondary is for accessing remote nodes after prior setup through the
master node. In the driver stack, these details are hidden behind
specific regmap configs.

The driver stack is implemented as MFD core and companion drivers that
can be registered as sub-devices in DT. Drivers for these sub-devices
can be used for both master and slave nodes, as they just interface
with the node's regmap.

The master node is responsible for discovering all the slave nodes at
probe time, and it needs to take the used audio and routing modes in
each of the slave devices into account in order to pre-calculate the
bus-timings correctly. Hence, this bus is not hot-pluggable.

Transceivers can both receive and provide audio, and streams can be
routed from one node to any other, including many others. The tricky
bit is how to expose the audio routing in DT in a sane way.
The way it is implemented here, the slave nodes specify the number of
slots they each consume and generate, and which thereof they forward
from one side to the other. This mimics the internal register
structure and should allow for even exotic setups.

Please let me know what you think and what could be improved.


Thanks,
Daniel

It was my understanding that the A2B bus is bidirectional but with 
separate time windows allocated for host->device and device->host 
transmission. The wording seems to hint at device-to-device 
communication but I wonder if this is really what you meant.

Yes, audio frames can be exchanged between two slave nodes without
interaction by the master node. I'm not sure what the best way is to
describe that in DT really, but as the hardware is capable of doing it,
there must be a way to enable such setups.


Thanks,
