[PATCH] arm64: acpi: Export symbol for acpi_os_ioremap
Posted by Huisong Li 9 months ago
The driver who calls the acpi_os_ioremap() cannot be compiled if the 'M'
is selected for the driver. The compiling log is as follows:
-->
MODPOST Module.symvers
ERROR: modpost: "acpi_os_ioremap" [drivers/soc/hisilicon/xxx.ko] undefined!
scripts/Makefile.modpost:136: recipe for target 'Module.symvers' failed
make[1]: *** [Module.symvers] Error 1

So this patch exports symbol for acpi_os_ioremap.

That driver does not exist in mainline.

Why does it need to use acpi_os_ioremap() instead of the ordinary
memremap/ioremap routines?

We have an uploading driver [1] that may use it.

This driver needs to ioremap the shared memory space of a PCC subspace.
And @Sudeep suggested that we use this interface.
It is suitable here.

I disagree. acpi_io_ioremap() is internal arch plumbing for the ACPI
subsystem. I don't see why we should use it here.

On arm64, acpi_os_ioremap() cross references the EFI memory map to
figure out whether a physical region is memory or device, but a driver
should already know that.

Yes. One reason I suggested this was in past firmware authors had mixed
the memory allocated for PCC and using acpi_io_ioremap() made sense. But
I hear you and it make sense to avoid it especially if the driver must
know what type of memory it is and must be dealing with.

Agreed.
