Hi Team,


               Currently I am working on IMX6 Sololite Linux Kernel Version-3.10.17. I tried with the Latest Kernel version-4.1.2.

I am facing the ethernet speed and stalled issues while transmitting or receiving the files using scp.

                Kindly help me in resolving the stalled issue and speed issue while transferring the Files using Ethernet. I am using pll6_enet as the Reference clock(50 MHz) and clock is defined with a period of 26 MHz speed.


time scp uImage
root@'s password:
uImage 63% 3488KB 0.0KB/s - stalled

The following are my dts and dtsi files. Can I know which is making the file Transmission or Reception slower :-


arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-imx6sl.c :-


static void __init imx6sl_fec_clk_init(void)
        struct regmap *gpr;


           gpr = syscon_regmap_lookup_by_compatible("fsl,imx6sl-iomuxc-gpr");
        if (!IS_ERR(gpr)) {
                regmap_update_bits(gpr, IOMUXC_GPR1,
                        IMX6SL_GPR1_FEC_CLOCK_MUX2_SEL_MASK, 1); //To indicate clock is supplied externally to the processor.
                regmap_update_bits(gpr, IOMUXC_GPR1,
                        IMX6SL_GPR1_FEC_CLOCK_MUX1_SEL_MASK, 0);
        } else
                pr_err("failed to find fsl,imx6sl-iomux-gpr regmap\n");




fec assignment in imx6sl-evk.dtsi :-



&fec {
pinctrl-names = "sleep";
pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_fec_1>;
pinctrl-1 = <&pinctrl_fec_1_sleep>;

phy-reset-gpios = <&gpio4 21 0>;
phy-reset-duration = <1>;
status = "okay";
