Did you just change a greybus protocol message that is sent over the
wire?  Why?  And why drop the endian marking of it?

I discussed with Uwe about losing bit and found there is no perfect
way to avoid, even in Uwe's patch[1], as a result, we decided to

The patch you reference [1] does not change the size of the
duty cycle and period, it only ensures the value passed is
no more than can be represented in an integer.

widen duty and period in gb_pwm_config_request, the other side of the
wire is supposed to change accordingly to support 64bit duty and

This is what Greg meant about changing the over-the-wire protocol
message format.  You can't do that, or rather, if you do that, it
is a *lot* more work than just changing it as you have done here.

If it is really required (and that's not clear, at least not at
this time), then you need to modify the protocol version, and
then make sure the versioning logic works correctly, both on
the AP side and on the module side for all existing modules.

I would suggest that it is *not* required though, because the
existing module code was built with the assumption that it would
be provided a 32-bit unsigned value for its duty cycle and period.
So as long as you make sure the AP side doesn't send anything
nonsensical, they will continue to work as desired.

The correct fix in this case (assuming you don't want to change
the protocol) is to ensure that whatever value is passed in to
the pwm_ops->config callback (which is gb_pwm_config()) is
adjusted to be within a range usable by the existing protocol.
Since it's actually an unsigned value, you could double the
range supported without changing the protocol if you wanted to
do that.

period too(this will introduce compatibility problem and there is no
variable like version to address it), similar with ktime_t in y2038,
below is the detail [2]

And similar to addressing the Y2038 issue, it is not an easy thing to do.


endian is a problem, i shouldn't drop it.

This is absolutely correct.  Did you attempt to compile this?




Are you sure this is ok?
