When I am planing to develop some features in Uboot, I found it has lots limitation without interrupt. For example, to have camera preview in Uboot. Polling in Uboot results non sync when camera preview and hard to keep code simple and clean. I decided to take some time survey interrupt and it is time to share it.

 

This patch (shown as attachment) is to enable the interrupt. It also has the sample code to set GPIO interrupt as well. The test below showed Uboot can get the interrupt when pressing Volume up key. Special thanks for Yongcai Huang for patient discussing with me on this.

 

irqinfo is the command to enable Volume up interrupt.

The log do_irq is print when Uboot got the interrupt.
