Using a LPSR GPIO Pad as a GPIO

Hi,

I'm trying to configure the imx7 pad GPIO1_IO01 as a GPIO.  We have a custom base board for the iMX7D and have other, non-lpsr, GPIO working ( I can toggle them and read their values from /sys/class/gpio).  Here's a snippet from my device tree where I try to configure GPIO1_IO01 as a GPIO input with no pull and normal drive strength, no hysteresis, and fast slew. 

&iomuxc_lpsr {
      pinctrl-names = "default";
      pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_gpio_lpsr>;

      epilog-cs-overboard {

            pinctrl_gpio_lpsr: gpiogrp-lpsr {
                  fsl,pins = <
                        MX7D_PAD_GPIO1_IO01__GPIO1_IO1       0x00
                  >;
            };
      };
};

When I read the value in /sys/class/gpio/gpio1 I always read 0 whether I pull it to ground or +3.3 V.  Do I need to do anything different for a LPSR pad in the device tree? 

Also, in other device trees I've seen lines like this for lpsr pads:

MX7D_PAD_GPIO1_IO07__I2C2_SDA 0x4000000f

What does the 0x4000000f do?  I thought the last value was only for pad control and could thus at most be 0x7f.

Thank you for the time.

James

Hi James

0x40000000 is SION bit described in linux/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/pinctrl/fsl,imx-pinctrl.txt

also one can check imx7d-pinctrl.txt:

linux-imx.git - i.MX Linux Kernel 
http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/imx/linux-imx.git/tree/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/pinct...

in imx7d-sdb.dts that pad used as : MX7D_PAD_GPIO1_IO01__PWM1_OUT
http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/imx/linux-imx.git/tree/arch/arm/boot/dts/imx7d-sdb.dts?h=imx_4...

Hello Igor,

Thank you for pointing me to some documentation.  That was helpful to see that for last integer, CONFIG:

  • NO_PAD_CTL(1 << 31): indicate this pin does not need config
  • SION(1 << 30): Software Input On FieldSION(1 << 30): Software Input On Field

So it looks like my configuration is correct and now I know more about configuring iomux pads.  Looking more at the documentation for our SoM I also learned that that pad isn't available with our current configuration.  Thanks for the help.

Best,

James
