GADGET g_serial Module

Hello,

I'm try to use the g_serial module in the kernel 3.8 but all the times I got problems like:

g_serial: Unknown symbol ...

I was looking that in the kernel 2.6 this module works fine, then I was comparing the kernel source code and than I saw that in 2.6 that we have an option in gadget seasion:

Driver->USB>Gadget>

USB Peripheral Controller

-->Freescale USB Device Controller

OBS:

config USB_GADGET_ARC

        boolean "Freescale USB Device Controller"

        depends on ARCH_MXC || ARCH_STMP3XXX || ARCH_MXS

        select USB_GADGET_DUALSPEED

        select USB_OTG_UTILS

        select USB_GADGET_DUALSPEED if USB_GADGET_FSL_1504 || USB_GADGET_FSL_UTMI

        help

           Some Freescale processors have a USBOTG controller,

           which supports device mode.

           Say "y" to link the driver statically, or "m" to build a

           dynamically linked module called "arc_udc" and force all

           gadget drivers to also be dynamically linked.

This option is not avaiable in kernel 3.8.

Some one know if this is the main reason for g_serial doesn't work in kernel 3.8?

There is some thing to solve it easily?

Thanks for All Help.

Hello Raul,

USB Peripheral support for i.MX28 started with kernel 3.11 (driver: ChipIdea Highspeed Dual Role Controller ), before there was only USB Host support.

Hello,

I try the same using kernel 3.12 and I got the same problem:

I enable all the chipidea options and the gadget for g_serial.

Do you know why I got this symbols errors?

Thanks for all help.

I found why this symbols happen.

I need to start 2 modules before g_serial.ko.

/lib/modules/3.12.0-00128-g928c8b1/kernel# insmod fs/configfs/configfs.ko

/lib/modules/3.12.0-00128-g928c8b1/kernel# insmod drivers/usb/gadget/libcomposite.ko

/lib/modules/3.12.0-00128-g928c8b1/kernel# insmod drivers/usb/gadget/g_serial.ko

But I get a new error when I start the g_serial.ko

To avoid these many insmod calls, just call

modprobe g_serial

Please try this patch. This should probably fix this problem.
