PCIe host controller driver in 3.10.17 kernel

Contributor III

I am trying to bring up a PCIe based wireless card on i.MX6 custom board. The card has been verified  with 3.10.9 kernel  using the same board.


Looks like PCIe host driver got additional features  like RC mode EP mode in this  3.10.17 kernel.  I can see the wi-fi card is getting detected. But the firmware download fails.

I have attached the console logs.  Your suggestions are welcome.

Hi Krishnan P,

Did you enable RC or EP option in the kernel configuration when build the kernel image?

These two options are only used in imx6 pcie ep/rc validation system, please disable them if they are enabled in your kernel configuration.
Otherwise, imx6 pcie wouldn't work properly.

based on the 3.10.17 and imx6dl sd, intel iwl633agn wifi card.

Here is the log.
