This patch introduces the Simple Counter interface. The Simple Counter
interface serves as an API to provide support for simple hardware
counter devices. The Simple Counter interface is built on top of the
Generic Counter interface.

A simple hardware counter device is a counter device that has a single
signal associated with each count value; Signals may have a value of
"low" or "high," and edge trigger the count function which either
increases or decreases the respective count value.

The Simple Counter interface provides two count function modes:

        SIMPLE_COUNTER_FUNCTION_INCREASE: "increase"
        SIMPLE_COUNTER_FUNCTION_DECREASE: "decrease"

The Simple Counter interface provides four action modes:

        SIMPLE_COUNTER_ACTION_NONE: "none"
        SIMPLE_COUNTER_ACTION_RISING_EDGE: "rising edge"
        SIMPLE_COUNTER_ACTION_FALLING_EDGE: "falling edge"
        SIMPLE_COUNTER_ACTION_BOTH_EDGES: "both edges"

Signals may be represented by two possible states:

        SIMPLE_COUNTER_SIGNAL_LOW: "low"
        SIMPLE_COUNTER_SIGNAL_HIGH: "high"

Since the Simple Counter interface utilizes the Generic Counter
interface underneath, all the expected functionality of the Generic
Counter interface such as sysfs attributes is exposed to userspace for
end user consumption. The Simple Counter interface serves as a
convenience API for supporting a common class of counter devices without
the need to manually configure the more cumbersome Generic Counter
interface for use.

To use the Simple Counter interface, create an array of
simple_counter_count structures to represent the desired counts and
signals of the counter device, allocate a simple_counter_device
structure and populate it with respective driver callbacks and the
simple_counter_count array created earlier, then register the counter by
calling the simple_counter_register function. The
simple_counter_unregister function may be used to unregistered a
previously registered counter.

Memory-managed versions of simple_counter_register and
simple_counter_unregister functions are provided by the
devm_simple_counter_register and devm_simple_counter_unregister
functions respectively.

How does this one make sense for a simple counter?
Presumably really just means "off"

A few little items inline.

My main concern here is it's a lot of code for a relatively small amount
of functionality.  I can't immediately see how to make a large difference
on that though.

Ah.  This will make my below comment on taking this const
tricky (at least for the generic counter).

What do you loose if you take the null check into the simple_counter
wrappers rather than here?

Not sure why I didn't notice before, but presumably all the below
are effectively const function pointers?
Lift them out to an ops structure as that'll let the order randomization
stuff play with them safely (security measure).  Also lets
us take a large block of this constant.

Adds a small level of indirection but worth it for the gains.
