Hi Greg, I'm reviewing this patchset now. v2 will simplify things down and add better documentation. Only 2 headers (one for the client API and one to define the interface with the out of tree code this talks to). > > Please do not add new apis / interfaces for code that is not part of > your patch series, otherwise we don't know what the future is going to > hold :) The v2 patch set will include my FPGA manager driver which is the first client of this service.

There will be other clients, so there will be other patchsets on top of this. We'll be sure to include new API functions and the client that needs them in the same patch set in the future.
