[RFC PATCH v6 00/11] hw/ssi: imx_spi: Fix various bugs in the imx_spi model

Posted by Philippe Mathieu-Daudé 1 week ago
Hi,

As it is sometimes harder for me to express myself in plain
English, I found it easier to write the patches I was thinking
about. I know this doesn't scale.

So this is how I understand the ecSPI reset works, after
looking at the IMX6DQRM.pdf datasheet.

This is a respin of Ben's v5 series [*].
Tagged RFC because I have not tested it :)

Sometimes changing device reset to better match hardware gives
trouble when using '-kernel ...' because there is no bootloader
setting the device in the state Linux expects it.

Copy of Ben's v5 cover:

  This series fixes a bunch of bugs in current implementation of the imx
  spi controller, including the following issues:

  - chip select signal was not lower down when spi controller is disabled
  - remove imx_spi_update_irq() in imx_spi_reset()
  - round up the tx burst length to be multiple of 8
  - transfer incorrect data when the burst length is larger than 32 bit
  - spi controller tx and rx fifo endianness is incorrect

[*] https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2021-01/msg02333.html

Diff with Ben's v5:

Unfortunately this series breaks SPI flash testing under both U-Boot
and VxWorks 7.

Given most of the new changes in this RFC series are clean-ups, I
suggest we apply the v5 series unless there is anything seriously
wrong in v5, IOW, don't fix it unless it's broken.

Thoughts?

Bin

Thanks for testing :) Can you provide the binary tested and the command
line used? At least one, so I can have a look.

Up to the maintainer :)

The IMX6DQRM datasheet is available here:

Sure, will send you offline.

Arf, stupid mistake in patch 7 :) With this diff I can run your
test:

Could you have a try at this? Do you prefer I resubmit
the whole series?

Thanks,

Please use attached u-boot image to test.

You will also need the following additional QEMU patches:
