This patch introduces a character device interface for the Counter
subsystem. Device data is exposed through standard character device read
operations. Device data is gathered when a Counter event is pushed by
the respective Counter device driver. Configuration is handled via ioctl
operations on the respective Counter character device node.

There are a few things in here that could profitably be pulled out as precursor
patches.  I don't really understand the connection of extension_name to the
addition of a chardev for example.  Might be needed to provide enough
info to actually use the chardev, but does it have meaning without that?
Either way, definitely feels like it can be done in a separate patch.

Seems like a return here would make more sense as no shared stuff to do at
end of the switch. Same in other similar cases.

For a raw spin lock, we definitely want to see comments on why it
is necessary.

Why 64?  Probably want that to be somewhat dynamic, even if only at build time.

Small thing but I would have been tempted to do a precursor patch to the
main change simply putting in place the userspace header.

Classic Nop patch that makes it easier to focus on the real stuff in this
patch by getting that noise out of the way!

Do we need COUNTER_SCOPE_NONE to go with COUNTER_COMPONENT_NONE?

Instead of "Count, extension, etc.", it could be more helpful
to say one of enum counter_component_type.

Same here. @scope must be one of enum counter_scope.

> + * @parent: parent component identification number
> + * @id: component identification number

It could be helpful to say that these id numbers match
the X/Y/Z in the sysfs paths as described in the sysfs
ABI.

It would be helpful to say that @event must be one of

It would be useful to say that @channel should be 0 unless
a component has more than one event of the same type.

There are error codes larger than 255. Probably better
make this __u32.

This variable clashed in user space, as soon as you include errno.h,
with the libc's "magic" definition of errno. What about "err" instead.
I'm not sure it an __u8 is the proper type, IIRC usually it's an int.

COUNTER_COMPONENT_NONE alone should be fine because it already indicates
that the 'component' member of the struct counter_watch is to be ignored
(i.e. type, scope, etc. will not be evaluated and that section of code
is bypassed).

Are error codes larger than 255 actually useful in this case? I noticed
the exit() function will only return the least significant byte of
status to the parent: https://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man3/exit.3.html

Sure, I can rename this to avoid a possible clash with libc's errno.
Maybe "status" would be more apt to indicate that this is an exit status
for the event -- the code returned may simply be a warning and not
necessarily a critical error.

Regarding the datatype for this value, I've opened up the discussion in
my reply to David Lechner [1], so perhaps we can continue it there.

The extension_name attributes are needed so chrdev users have enough
info to identify which extension number corresponds to which extension.
I'll move this to change to a separate patch and provide an appropriate
explanation there to make things clearer.
