This is not a h/w parameter and shouldn't be in DT.

Maybe this one is okay, but couldn't the user want to set this? If so, 
then it should be a sysfs attr.

Those two parameters have been just moved from
linux/include/linux/platform_data/sht3x.h
Currently, those two parameters can be set in board file, so for me
was natural to move it to dts.
Of course, I can remove it from dts completely.

I wonder if there is an authoritative document explaining the current policy
in respect to devicetree properties. Sometimes I hear that platform
configuration parameters are now permitted, sometimes I hear that we are
back to hardware description only.

No. In the end it is often a judgement call.

Yes, configuration is permitted, but there are some constraints. The
questions I ask are is it OS specific or specific to current
implementation of an OS, who or what decides what the setting is? The
last question results in lots of things dropped in favor of a sysfs
control.

In this driver, both parameters were considered system / platform parameters.
One controls if the chip uses i2c clock stretching or if the system has to poll
for results. This is determined by the system's i2c controller and may also be
influenced by considerations such as if there is another chip on the same bus.
The other parameter controls accuracy which directly translates into power
consumption. While there could be applications where both parameters are
controlled by user space, that would be the exception. In the expected use
case, ie for hardware monitoring, user space control would neither be feasible
nor desirable. As such, sysfs controls for the parameters don't even exist.

I don't mind if you reject adding those dt properties for now, but I would
resist adding sysfs attributes unless someone provides me with an actual
and specific use case.

Thanks,
Guenter

Okay, makes sense. As it is named, it sounded like picking a s/w API
to use (sync vs. async). So please improve the description based on
Guenter's explanation.

I could imagine you may want to switch modes based on battery powered
vs. plugged in. But that's not to say you couldn't want it one way or
the other for a system.

I'm not rejecting them. My next question though is should these be
common properties?

No, they are chip specific.

Really?

Trading off accuracy vs. sampling frequency is very much common for
ADCs. Not exactly the same thing here, but surely there's other cases
out there.

And here's another device with programmable clock stretching[1]. Lots
of discussions in searching about masters not supporting clock
stretching more than I found of slaves which are configurable. At
least in that case, we should be able to derive it from master
compatible strings. But for the cases where both ends can support
stretching or not, seems like we need an i2c property.

The means are different, though. The most common means to control accuracy
(indirectly) and power consumption is through the ADC update interval.
We commonly use that in hwmon drivers. Another possible common attribute/
property would the the accuracy as explicit number (9/10/11/12 bit,
or in degrees C for thermal sensors). sht3x lets users set the update
interval and the accuracy (called repeatability) separately. Repeatability
is defined as "high, medium, low", which translates into 0.15% RH for high
repeatability to 0.25% RH for low repeatability. Not sure how to translate
that into a common property which would apply to multiple chips.

Good point, and makes sense.

I haven't read all this, but regarding clock stretching, this is the
current state:

* clock streching is defined in the I2C specs and thus masters are
  assumed to handle it properly
* if they can't, this is a quirk and we have a flag for it:
  I2C_AQ_NO_CLK_STRETCH
* client drivers can check for quirks and act accordingly:
  i2c_check_quirks(struct i2c_adapter *adap, u64 quirks)

Note: there is currently no user of this feature because mainlining the
client got stuck for some reason. So, I'd be happy if all this is useful
to you.

Regards,
