PCIE on iMX6Q problems

Hello Everyone,

I want to implement a Wlan card from LAIRD to a custom iMX6Q from Phytec based on distro fsl-imx-xwayland. The meta-laird-cp wifi driver and backport is already included in bb layer and conf file. On the booting, I think PCIe has some problems:

[    0.550313] imx6q-pcie 1ffc000.pcie: phy link never came up
[    0.550727] imx6q-pcie 1ffc000.pcie: PCI host bridge to bus 0000:00
[    0.550760] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [io  0x1000-0xffff]
[    0.550786] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [mem 0x01000000-0x01efffff]
[    0.550814] pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [bus 00-ff]
[    0.551636] PCI: bus0: Fast back to back transfers disabled
[    0.551912] PCI: bus1: Fast back to back transfers enabled
[    0.552110] pci 0000:00:00.0: BAR 0: assigned [mem 0x01000000-0x010fffff]
[    0.552151] pci 0000:00:00.0: BAR 6: assigned [mem 0x01100000-0x0110ffff pref]
[    0.552179] pci 0000:00:00.0: PCI bridge to [bus 01]
[    0.552595] pcieport 0000:00:00.0: Signaling PME through PCIe PME interrupt

The PCI host seem to be can not detected because there is no mapping for PCI IO and PCI MEM. The signal PME is also interrupt.

When I test with command lspci -v, system can not detect the wlan card, just only the PCI bridge:

00:00.0 PCI bridge: Synopsys, Inc. Device abcd (rev 01) (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 298
        Memory at 01000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1M]
        Bus: primary=00, secondary=01, subordinate=ff, sec-latency=0
        I/O behind bridge: None
        Memory behind bridge: None
        Prefetchable memory behind bridge: None
        [virtual] Expansion ROM at 01100000 [disabled] [size=64K]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 3
        Capabilities: [50] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable+ 64bit+
        Capabilities: [70] Express Root Port (Slot-), MSI 00
        Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
        Capabilities: [140] Virtual Channel
        Kernel driver in use: pcieport

Do I configure the PCI driver correct? Anyone have idea about this. Hope that you can help me.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Minh.

Hi Minh

one can check with other cards if they will be detected, also look at below suggestions

i.MX6 “PHY link never came up” 

VAR-MX6Custom board PCIe phy does not come up - Variscite Forums 

pci: mx6: fix occasional link failures (5a82e1a2) · Commits · U-Boot / U-Boot · GitLab 

also phytec uses own bsps so may be relevant to post issue on its forums.

Best regards
igor

Hi Igor,

Thanks for your help, now I can integrate the driver of wlan card and the wlan card also regconize on the PCI lists device through command lspci -v.

In the boot logs file have these issues:

Do you have any idea about these Errors. Phytec BSP do not implement the fsl_imx_gpu direct Frame Buffer that I need to develop the software based on OpenGL ES. So that's why I make a BSP based on the fsl-imx.

Best Regards,

Minh.

John from Laird Connectivity here.

Just for future reference, these errors are caused either by the backported driver being used with in-tree mac80211 and cfg80211 or backports was built against a different kernel than the one running on the host here.

If you are experiencing errors similar to these, the kernel will have to be reconfigured/recompiled with the wireless subsystem removed and backports built against that kernel and deployed on the host with the new kernel. Laird Connectivity provides an external layer for building the driver and firmware with custom Yocto images. Please see our layer here:
