gpiolib: introduce set_debounce method
A few architectures, like OMAP, allow you to set a debouncing time for the gpio before generating the IRQ. Teach gpiolib about that. Mark said: : This would be generally useful for embedded systems, especially where : the interrupt concerned is a wake source. It allows drivers to avoid : spurious interrupts from noisy sources so if the hardware supports it : the driver can avoid having to explicitly wait for the signal to become : stable and software has to cope with fewer events. We've lived without : it for quite some time, though. David said: : I looked at adding debounce support to the generic GPIO calls (and thus : gpiolib) some time back, but decided against it. I forget why at this : time (check list archives) but it wasn't because of lack of utility in : certain contexts. : : One thing to watch out for is just how variable the hardware capabilities : are. Atmel GPIOs have something like a fixed number of 32K clock cycles : for debounce, twl4030 had something odd, OMAPs were more like the Atmel : chips but with a different clock. In some cases debouncing had to be : ganged, not per-GPIO. And so forth.
