function signature changes out into all relevant subsystems that use
this callback.

I am slightly conflicted about this change as that now more or less
implicitly drops the const. So I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to
either create a function specifically for const pointers or to just
open-code it in the instance above.

I guess we could also convert this to a macro. Then at least there
wouldn't be an explicit and potentially misleading const-conversion
indicated in the function signature.

This is an intermediate step as far as I know since moving container_of to
recognize const is a bit noisy right now. I guess you can find a discussion
on the topic between Greg and Sakari.

Thanks! I assume you are referring to the following?

	https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/4218173bd72b4f1899d4c41a8e251f0d@AcuMS.aculab.com/T/

As far as I can tell this is only a warning in documentation, not
compile time (which would probably be impossible?).

As I've said I'd be fine with converting the function to a macro (and
preferably adding a similar warning like the one proposed in that
thread). The point that irks me up is just that, as proposed, the
function signature would now advertise a conversion that should never be
happening.

Having two separate functions would create a compile-time guarantee, so
I'd prefer that, but I can understand if that might be considered too
noisy in code. Or if there is a push to make container_of() emit a
compile-time warning I'd also be perfectly happy with converting it to a
macro now as that'd alleviate the need for functions in the future.

Max

Can't we do:

static inline const struct ssam_device *to_ssam_device(const struct device *d)
{
	return container_of(d, const struct ssam_device, dev);
}

There are at least a couple of places (device/driver-management and
device-removal related, I think) using this function and requiring
non-const access.

A bunch of other instances could be converted to const-access only, but
that would require a couple more function signature changes (I should
probably set up a patch for that regardless of this here as being a bit
more strict about this makes sense).

Max

You could, if you can always handle a const pointer coming out of this
function, but I don't think you can.

What you might want to do instead, and I'll be glad to do it for all of
the functions like this I change, is to do what we have for struct
device now:

static inline struct device *__kobj_to_dev(struct kobject *kobj)
{
        return container_of(kobj, struct device, kobj);
}

static inline const struct device *__kobj_to_dev_const(const struct kobject *kobj)
{
        return container_of(kobj, const struct device, kobj);
}

/*
 * container_of() will happily take a const * and spit back a non-const * as it
 * is just doing pointer math.  But we want to be a bit more careful in the
 * driver code, so manually force any const * of a kobject to also be a const *
 * to a device.
 */
#define kobj_to_dev(kobj)                                       \
        _Generic((kobj),                                        \
                 const struct kobject *: __kobj_to_dev_const,   \
                 struct kobject *: __kobj_to_dev)(kobj)


Want me to do the same thing here as well?

Ok, will respin this patch as at least 2 individual patches, one that
does the change to to_ssam_device() and the next that does the bus-wide
changes.

I'll review the other container_of() users in this patch as well to see
if they can be converted as well.

It would be nice to have a shared macro code gen all of the above
instead of copy and pasting it. Then maybe other cases beyond struct
device could adopt const too..

I think I tried to create such a beast, but failed, so ended up
open-coding it in a few places in the USB headers already.  I can try it
again, but the redirection gets tricky (defines creating defines...)

This seems OK:

#define generic_container_of(in_type, in, out_type, out_member) \
	_Generic(in,                                        \
                  const in_type *: ((const out_type *)container_of(in, out_type, out_member)),   \
                  in_type *: ((out_type *)container_of(in, out_type, out_member)) \
		  )

#define kobj_to_dev(__kobj) \
	generic_container_of(struct kobject, __kobj, struct device, kobj)

There's a neat trick I found in seqlock.h:

#define generic_container_of(in_t, in, out_t, m)			\
	_Generic(*(in),							\
		const in_t: ((const out_t *)container_of(in, out_t, m)), \
		in_t: ((out_t *)container_of(in, out_type, m))	\
	)

and now it fits in 80 columns ;-)

Aside from less letters, is their another benifit to using *(in) ?

I don't think so.  It just looks nicer to me than putting the star in
each case.  If I'd thought of it, I would have done it to page_folio(),
but I won't change it now.

Nice trick!  Dropping the inline functions is a bit different, let me
see if that still gives a sane error if we pass an incorrect type or
mess with the const * the wrong way.  I'll run some tests tomorrow
afternoon...

The errors in some cases are very verbose, but it is somewhat
understandable - the worst is when _Generic fails to match anything,
but also at least clang partially expanded container_of and it throws
other assertions too.

I also wonder if this could just be rolled into the normal
container_of.

in_type would have to be derived like:

  in_type = typeof((out_type *)NULL)->out_member)

But I don't know if you can use typeof in a generic type matching expression..

I think we might be able to now, my previous attempts with inline
functions prevented that.  I'll beat on that tomorrow...

Maybe that is what threw me before, I can't remember.  I do know we
tried a number of different attempts, can't recall the failed ones...

I am sorry I haven't followed the previous discussion,
but has something like the following been considered?

  #define container_of2(ptr, type, member) \
  	_Generic((ptr), \
  		typeof_member(const type, member) *: container_of((ptr), const type, member), \
  		const void *: container_of((ptr), const type, member), \
  		default: container_of((ptr), type, member) \
  	)

This is not perfect by any means, but I believe it is a reasonable
improvement. It only really works reliably if the member type and
the specified `type` in the arguments are unqualified,
but I believe that should cover the majority of cases.

I have tried to build an x86-64 defconfig with this and there are
numerous const violations, but I haven't seen any false positives.
