      dm: Introduce device sequence numbering · 5a66a8ff
      Simon Glass authored
      In U-Boot it is pretty common to number devices from 0 and access them
      on the command line using this numbering. While it may come to pass that
      we will move away from this numbering, the possibility seems remote at
      Given that devices within a uclass will have an implied numbering, it
      makes sense to build this into driver model as a core feature. The cost
      is fairly small in terms of code and data space.
      With each uclass having numbered devices we can ask for SPI port 0 or
      serial port 1 and receive a single device.
      Devices typically request a sequence number using aliases in the device
      tree. These are resolved when the device is probed, to deal with conflicts.
      Sequence numbers need not be sequential and holes are permitted.
      At present there is no support for sequence numbers using static platform
      data. It could easily be added to 'struct driver_info' if needed, but it
      seems better to add features as we find a use for them, and the use of -1
      to mean 'no sequence' makes the default value somewhat painful.

      dm: Move uclass error checking/probing into a function · 9ca296a1
      Simon Glass authored
      Several functions will use this same pattern, so bring it into a function.

      dm: rename device struct to udevice · 54c5d08a
      Heiko Schocher authored
      using UBI and DM together leads in compiler error, as
      both define a "struct device", so rename "struct device"
      in include/dm/device.h to "struct udevice", as we use
      linux code (MTD/UBI/UBIFS some USB code,...) and cannot
      change the linux "struct device"
