acpi_lpss_create_device() skips handling LPSS devices which do not have
a mmio resources in their resource list (typically these devices are
disabled by the firmware). But since the LPSS code does not bind to the
device, acpi_bus_attach() ends up still creating a platform device for
it and the regular platform_driver for the ACPI HID still tries to bind
to it.

This happens e.g. on some boards which do not use the pwm-controller
and have an empty or invalid resource-table for it. Currently this causes
these error messages to get logged:
[    3.281966] pwm-lpss 80862288:00: invalid resource
[    3.287098] pwm-lpss: probe of 80862288:00 failed with error -22

This commit stops the undesirable creation of a platform_device for
disabled LPSS devices by setting pnp.type.platform_id to 0. Note that
acpi_scan_attach_handler() also sets pnp.type.platform_id to 0 when there
is a matching handler for the device and that handler has no attach
callback, so we simply behave as a handler without an attach function
in this case.

Does this fix new behavior or is it an old issue?

The problem this addresses is likely caused by the acpi_always_present
entry for the CHT 80862288 PWM devices in drivers/acpi/x86/utils.c.

The problem is that under Windows the Intel GPU driver has hardcoded
addresses for the PWM LPSS bits (or so I believe), rather then having
it as a separate device with a separate driver, so the CHT LPSS PWM
device's _STA returns 0 on all x86 devices which ship with Windows.

On most CHT laptops / tablets it is used to control the backlight
brightness so we do need the device under Linux, where we've a
separate PWM driver and we don't want to be hardcoding stuff like
this.

So we really cannot do without the acpi_always_present entry, and thus
need this extra check for devices where the pwm is actually unused
and disabled by the firmware.

Regards,

Hans

Seems like a good way to fix it IMHO,

Yeah, looks much better for my opinion than previous hack to PWM
platform driver.
