Hi all,

As per CSU_CSL registers default value ,it has secure read /write permission by default .(CSU_CSL=0x00330033)

I am not getting that even though it has secure read/write access permission then how that peripheral can be accessed from linux kernel.

is it that linux kernel is operating in secure mode?

i want to add CSU for secure and non secure access of peripherals .

so help me on how to enable CSU in imx6.

Thanks

Q. is it that linux kernel is operating in secure mode?

A. The Linux kernel code is executed in the ARM hardware Supervisor mode, so, it has the Secure level of access.

Q. i want to add CSU for secure and non secure access of peripherals . so help me on how to enable CSU in imx6.

A. Please refer to the Chapter 3 of the i.MX6 Series Security Reference Manual document, available for download on the NXP web site (check the "Reference Manuals" section):
