I know about.

I would like to use it but don't work with edge interrupt.
__do_IRQ handle it in right way.

I used this implementation but I did some change edge/level handling and I can't
use it.
http://developer.petalogix.com/git/gitweb.cgi?p=linux-2.6-microblaze.git;a=blob_plain;f=arch/microblaze/kernel/irq.c;hb=3645d887ad6443a262bbeddf384038321172db2b

Any hints what could be wrong?





First of all I have one question to you about MB timer.c.
It is about this function - microblaze_read.

static cycle_t mb_tick_cnt; /* store counter ticks */
static cycle_t microblaze_read(void)
{
u64 temp = (u64)mb_tick_cnt + (u64)((u32)cpuinfo.freq_div_hz
- (u32)in_be32(TIMER_BASE + TCR0));
return temp;
}

MB has 32bit periodic down counter and I need to use u64 value that's why
I do these operation above. cpuinfo.freq_div_hz store freq/HZ value - number of
ticks for 1/HZ. I subtract current timer value + mb_tick_cnt which store number
of count. The problem I have is that gettimeofday LTP test failed on it ->
announce that time is going backward.
Simple returning only mb_tick_cnt pass this test but of course I am losing
information about time till 1/HZ.
Do I have to add any specific amount of time which take counting of it?


And the second question is about shift and rating values.
I wrote one message in past http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/1/11/291
Here is the important of part of that message.

...

And the second part is about shift and rating values. Rating is
describe(linux/clocksource.h) and seems to me that should be
corresponded with CONFIG_HZ value,right?
And I found any explanation of shift value -> max value for equation
(2-5) * freq << shift / NSEC_PER_SEC should be for my case still 32bit
number, where (2-5s) are because of NTP

The second thing which seems to me weird in comparing with others log I
have seen is .resolution value. Full (proc/timer_lists is below) My
.resolution: 10000000 nsecs which
is 1/HZ in nsec. (On others log I saw 1nsec values). My the lowest
resolution is 1/freq = 8nsec (for 125MHz). Is that OK or not.

This not flood the syslog. I don't know why (maybe because of missing ONESHOT)
but this code is never called in periodic mode. But you are right if this
function is called a lot it is necessary to use pr_debug -> but this is not my
case in this implementation.

It is only information that timer work in periodic mode.

Part of kernel log which is there - nothing more.

microblaze_timer_set_mode: shutdown
microblaze_timer_set_mode: periodic

Oneshot is not supported yet - only periodic mode. I had to add it mb_tick_cnt
counting because
I don't know reason but without it ( kernel and timer in periodic mode )not
update system time.

OK. I'll add it.

I take this part of code from arch/blackfin/kernel/time-ts.c:217-219.
arch/x86/xen/time.c use it too. And arch/arm/kernel/time.c use similar
implemetation.


Thanks,
Michal
