Commit Message

Aastha Gupta Sept. 27, 2017, 6:31 a.m. UTC
The IIO subsystem is redefining iio_dev->mlock to be used by
the IIO core only for protecting device operating mode changes.
ie. Changes between INDIO_DIRECT_MODE, INDIO_BUFFER_* modes.

In this driver, mlock was being used to protect hardware state
changes.  Replace it with a driver private lock.

Also, as there are state changes in the ad7192_ write_raw function, a lock
is added to prevent the concurrent state changes.

Why was it not needed before?

Patch is fine, but Julia had an outstanding question on the commit message.

julia

Lazy maintainer strategy 15, don't reply to a patch once someone else has
raised an reasonably question that hasn't been answered ;)
