I use 16c554 on imx6q,and I have a problem.

In linux 3.0.35,I add 16c554 information to board-mx6q_sabresd.c below. and it worked ok.

---------------------------

static struct plat_serial8250_port imx6_st16c554[] = {

    {    //st16c554_uart0

    .membase    =    NULL,

    .mapbase    =    0x0c004000,

    .irq        =    gpio_to_irq(IMX_GPIO_NR(2,14)),

    .uartclk    =    18432000,

    .regshift    =    0,

    .iotype        =    UPIO_MEM,

    .flags        =    UPF_IOREMAP,

    },

    {    //st16c554_uart1

    .membase    =    NULL,

    .mapbase    =    0x0c004010,

    .irq        =    gpio_to_irq(IMX_GPIO_NR(1,17)),

    .uartclk    =    18432000,

    .regshift    =    0,

    .iotype        =    UPIO_MEM,

    .flags        =    UPF_IOREMAP,

    },

    {    //st16c554_uart2

    .membase    =    NULL,

    .mapbase    =    0x0c004020,

    .irq        =    gpio_to_irq(IMX_GPIO_NR(2,11)),

    .uartclk    =    18432000,

    .regshift    =    0,

    .iotype        =    UPIO_MEM,

    .flags        =    UPF_IOREMAP,

    },

    {    //st16c554_uart3

    .membase    =    NULL,

    .mapbase    =    0x0c004030,

    .irq        =    gpio_to_irq(IMX_GPIO_NR(2,9)),

    .uartclk    =    18432000,

    .regshift    =    0,

    .iotype        =    UPIO_MEM,

    .flags        =    UPF_IOREMAP,

    },

    {},

};

static struct platform_device imx6_device_st16c554 = {

    .name        =    "ST16C554",

    .id        =    0,

    .dev        ={

        .platform_data    =    &imx6_st16c554,

    },

};

-------------------------------------

when I use linux 3.10.17,how I add the information above into device tree(imx6qdl-sabreauto.dtsi).

We have a similar kind of board, where we have to interact with EXAR_ST16C2550 from imx6dl. 

Do you have the weim settings for your chip?

You can find an example on how another 8250 serial port is connected to the weim port:

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/arch/arm/boot/dts/imx27-eukrea-...

Then you could add 16c554 into the list of supported compatible strings at:

drivers/tty/serial/of_serial.c

Hope this helps.

the problem had done,but i did not use device tree.I used drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_exar_st16c554.c

    }

static struct plat_serial8250_port exar_data[] = {

    PORT(PHY_ST16C554_UART1, 273),

    PORT(PHY_ST16C554_UART2, 297),

    PORT(PHY_ST16C554_UART3, 299),

}

module_init(exar_init);

MODULE_AUTHOR("Paul B Schroeder");

MODULE_DESCRIPTION("8250 serial probe module for Exar cards");

MODULE_LICENSE("GPL");

---------------------------------------

and I inited the interrupts and bus time in 8250_core.c

Hi,

I have checked if we have something similar that can help, but I did not find anything.

The problem here is that even though tehera re strict conventions, there is no rigid rule about what and how to use the device tree. Any routine in the kernel may loop up any parameter in the device tree.

It is your choice what to use and how to use it.

I recommend you to take a look at : Device Tree Usage - FDTWiki

Please notice that the most important part it is the .compatible property becuase it is the connections to the kernel driver.

Best Regards,

Alejandro
