Problem enabling ECSPI on iMX6ULL

Hello,

We have a custom board based on the iMX6ull processor that we try to enable ECSPI4 on. Below you find the board dts file with the added ECSPI declarations. The problem we run into is that during kernel boot, when initializing the spi-imx driver executing stops suddenly. We have traced this to the method call mx51_ecspi_reset() in spi-imx.c. Eveything stops when the readl(spi_imx->base + MXC_CSPIRXDATA) line is executed. Further debugging shows that execution stops as soon as either a readl or a writel call is performed. We are building using the linux-imx repository and use the branch imx_4.1.15_2.0.0_ga

1. Can you see what we might have done wrong?

2. Are we using the correct branch? Is there a newer branch that is more recently supported for the iMX6ull?

3. Have we configured the iomux correctly for the ecspi? Is there a reference as to what the 0x100b1 parameter means on the ecspi iomux lines? (We've taken them from other topics on these forums)

Thankful for any help we can get.

Hi Jesper

spi-max-frequency = <80000000>;  seems too much comparing with

Table 47. ECSPI Master Mode Timing Parameters i.MX6ULL Datasheet
http://www.nxp.com/docs/en/data-sheet/IMX6ULLCEC.pdf 

also one can try with demo images

https://www.nxp.com/webapp/Download?colCode=L4.1.15_2.0.0_iMX6ULL&appType=license&location=null 

latest Linux 4.9.11_1.0.0 :

linux-imx.git - i.MX Linux Kernel 

Descriptions on

Hi Igor,

Thank you for the response. I managed to figure out what was wrong with my setup and it turned out to be completely unconnected to either kernel or device tree. I had the Y0 version of the chip which has only 2 ecspi modules (ecspi1 and ecspi2). I try to use ecspi4 which results in the kernel driver attempting to access registers that doesn't exist on the chip, which causes execution to stall.

Thank you for your assistance. I found out about it through the PinMux tool that I found through the link to i.MX Software Tools you provided as I hadn't found that before.

Best regards,

Jesper
