Enabling SDIO Based WiFi Module on i.MX25 - L2..6.31_09_12

Hi All,

      We were trying to enable the SDIO based wifi on the PDK i.MX25 with L2.6.31_09_12.

       We could see the communication with the module and pdk happening. But the wifi was not coming up.

       After doing some extensive search on the web, found following links which say that in L2.6.31 SDIO driver of Freescale there are some limitations and wifi module would not work.

Attached log with more debug statements.

Request anybody was successful in enabling SDIO based WiFi on i.MX25 L2.6.31? If so, please share your configurations.

Please recommend how we can solve this issue

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,
Gupta

The problem lies in the kernel 2.6.31 not indicating the real SDIO interrupts to SD Host Controller bus driver. The Unifi host software timeout waiting for response from the Unifi chip. One workaround is to disable the host controller capability MMC_CAP_SDIO_IRQ so that the SDIO bus driver's IRQ thread polls the SDIO card to check on the interrupts.
