Re: [Patch] hwmon: (max6639) Set Pulse per revolution loop for both channels

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

The patches I just submitted fix the main issues with the driver on my
system. I didn't fix the variable initialization because it seems to
generate a warning when ever I move them closer to were they belong
in, it generates a compiler warning of "warning: ISO C90 forbids mixed
declarations and code". I am looking into how platform_data works to
see how it works to see if I can handle checking it and changing the
chip initialization to work with platform data if its provided and to
leave it alone if its not. Thanks for the patience with my patch
submissions, I am learning a lot from this
