iMX28 LCDIF DMA not running after a screen blank

Branched to a new discussion

I am running an iMX28 Linux (Freescale 2013). After blanking the screen (echo 1 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank) and subsequently un-blanking (echo 0 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank), I can no longer see any graphics applications.

When the failure happens, it appears that the LCDIF DMA controller is no longer executing in spite of the fact that it seems to be configured properly.


Can anyone tell me why the DMA controller is not running?


Since LCDIF interrupts are disabled, I would expect interrupt status such as BM_LCDIF_CTRL1_VSYNC_EDGE_IRQ.

I would also expect the HW_LCDIF_CRC_STAT to be not FFFFFFF.

Here is a register dump with some "telling" annotations:
