As suggested in  i.MX_Reference_Manual.pdf document, at higher temp. frequency scaling should be done using Thermal driver. So I enabled the "Temperature sensor driver for Freescale i.MX SoCs" in kernel defconfig and on compilation I got below error.

To resolve this compilation I looked in to the code and found below code, which means register_busfreq_notifier does not support arm64 arch.

1 #if defined(CONFIG_CPU_FREQ) && !defined(CONFIG_ARM64)
2 extern struct regulator *arm_reg;
3 extern struct regulator *soc_reg;
4 void request_bus_freq(enum bus_freq_mode mode);
5 void release_bus_freq(enum bus_freq_mode mode);
6 int register_busfreq_notifier(struct notifier_block *nb);
7 int unregister_busfreq_notifier(struct notifier_block *nb);
8 int get_bus_freq_mode(void);
9 #elif defined(CONFIG_ARCH_FSL_IMX8MQ)
10 void request_bus_freq(enum bus_freq_mode mode);
11 void release_bus_freq(enum bus_freq_mode mode);
12 int get_bus_freq_mode(void);
13 #else


* Still I tried to compile by moving 6th and 7th line to #elif part. But had below  error which means I am tring to compile arm32 arch code for arm64 arch.


"relocation truncated to fit: R_AARCH64_CALL26 against undefined symbol "



Please help me to solve this issue.
