* [PATCH] HID: wacom: Make use of the helper function devm_add_action_or_reset()

The helper function devm_add_action_or_reset() will internally
call devm_add_action(), and if devm_add_action() fails then it will
execute the action mentioned and return the error code. So
use devm_add_action_or_reset() instead of devm_add_action()
to simplify the error handling, reduce the code.

Hi Jason,


I haved sorted the patches to a series, and fixed the repeated "that"
in changelog.

like this:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-input/patch/20211015022803.3827-1-caihuoqing@baidu.com/

If there are any issue to resend v3 or later, feel free to sort my patch
as series. You also can attach your patch link directly here.

BTW, a minor issue, for 'RFC' prefix, you can use
git format-patch --rfc. It should be showed in subject prefix, like
"[RFC PATCH ..]" (in the link, I missed fixing it).

I tested the set of two patches. I didn't see any issues with them
applied. But, while reviewing the patches, I noticed a minor logic
mismatch between the current patch and the original code. I'd hope at
least one of the maintainers (Jiri, Benjamin, or Dimitry) reviews this
patch, especially the part that I commented below, to make sure that
we don't trigger any race condition.

Thank you Huoqing, Jason, and the maintainer team!

The mutex_unlock was called after devm_add_action is finished, whether
it is a failure or success. The new code calls mutex_unlock before
devm_add_action is executed. Is that ok? If there is no concern from
the maintainers, the patch has been:

I think this is OK, but I would prefer if assignments that alter the
shared data (i.e. assignment to wacom_wac->shared->pen, etc) would
continue stay under mutex protection, so they need to be pulled up.

With that you can add my

I don't see any issue with that ordering, but I'd also prefer for clarity 
to keep updating the shared data structure under the mutex protection.

With that, please send me the series with both patches and the Acks / 
Review-by accumulated, and I'll apply it.

Thanks,

I believe all of its members are either flags (so already atomic) or initialized during probe and then just used as a handle with appropriate NULL checks (but maybe two threads could be simultaneously issuing events to the same device?).

Following up on this. I took a second look at the shared struct, and
believe that things should work fine during initialization and
steady-state. There are, however, opportunities for e.g. one
device/thread to be removed and set e.g. `shared->touch = NULL` while
a second device/thread is attempting to send an event out of that
device. This is going to be very rare and only on disconnect, which is
probably why we've never received reports of real-world issues.

This shared issue is present with or without the changes by Cai and
myself. I would ask that these two patches be merged while we look at
introducing a new mutex to protect the contents of the shared pointer.
