i'm a application developer and have some questions about the mxs-auart under Linux 2.6.35 (Freescale BSP) and the iMX28 platform:


Where do i get the information at runtime, which mode (DMA on/off) the auart is running?

Can i enable or disable DMA mode at runtime for the auart?

Are there any disadvantages using DMA mode for mxs-auart?

Does the DMA mode support marking of parity and framing errors?

Is there more documentation about auart than in the reference manual for the EVK?


Thanks in advance
