spi_register_master - register SPI master controller
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
int spi_register_master(struct spi_master * master );
3. ARGUMENTS ▲
initialized master, originally from spi_alloc_master
4. CONTEXT ▲
5. DESCRIPTION ▲
SPI master controllers connect to their drivers using some non-SPI bus, such as the platform bus. The final stage of probe in that code includes calling spi_register_master to hook up to this SPI bus glue.
SPI controllers use board specific (often SOC specific) bus numbers, and board-specific addressing for SPI devices combines those numbers with chip select numbers. Since SPI does not directly support dynamic device identification, boards need configuration tables telling which chip is at which address.
This must be called from context that can sleep. It returns zero on success, else a negative error code (dropping the masterAqs refcount). After a successful return, the caller is responsible for calling spi_unregister_master.
