Hi all

we have a problem when using SDIO WIFI(Marvell 88W8897) on a IMX6q board (refer to sabresd) with Android 4.4.2_1.0.0.

The problem we are having is that the OS does not seem to detect when WIFI Module is inserted. I would expect at least a line or two in dmesg, but there is nothing.

I find this link:Re: iMX6 WiFi on SDIO but the problem remains.

If insert a  SD card,  will be able to detected.

Please give me some advice, Thanks!

Hi

Please check your esdhc platform_data (board init) that use with wifi module (if it always there never remove)

static const struct esdhc_platform_data mx6_evk_sd3_data __initconst = {
.always_present  = 1,
.cd_gpio = -1,
.wp_gpio = -1,
.support_8bit  = 0,
.keep_power_at_suspend = 1,
.delay_line = 0,
.support_18v = 0,
.platform_pad_change = plt_sd_pad_change,
.cd_type = ESDHC_CD_CONTROLLER,
.keep_clock = 1,
};
