    Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] [SCSI] ufshcd: UFS Host Controller Driver
    From: Santosh Yaraganavi <>

    Universal Flash Storage is a storage specification for flash devices.
    It is aimed to provide a universal storage interface for both
    embedded and removable flash memory based storage in mobile
    devices such as smart phones and tablet computers. The specification
    is defined by JEDEC Solid State Technology Association. UFS is based
    on MIPI M-PHY physical layer standard. UFS uses MIPI M-PHY as the
    physical layer and MIPI Unipro as the link layer.

    The main goals of UFS is to provide,
    - Optimized performance:
    For UFS version 1.0 and 1.1 the target performance is as follows,
    Support for Gear1 is mandatory (rate A: 1248Mbps, rate B: 1457.6Mbps)
    Support for Gear2 is optional (rate A: 2496Mbps, rate B: 2915.2Mbps)
    Future version of the standard,
    Gear3 (rate A: 4992Mbps, rate B: 5830.4Mbps)
    - Low power consumption
    - High random IOPs and low latency

    UFS Architecture Overview:
    UFS has a layered communication architecture which is based on SCSI
    SAM-5 architectural model.

    UFS communication architecture consists of following layers,

    * Application Layer: It is composed of UFS command set layer(UCS),
    Task Manager and Device manager. The UFS interface is designed to be
    protocol agnostic, however SCSI has been selected as a baseline
    protocol for versions 1.0 and 1.1 of UFS protocol layer.
    UFS supports subset of SCSI commands defined by SPC-4 and SBC-3.
    - UCS: It handles SCSI commands supported by UFS specification.
    - Task manager: It handles task management functions defined by the
    UFS which are meant for command queue control.
    - Device manager: It handles device level operations and device
    configuration operations. Device level operations mainly involve
    device power management operations and commands to Interconnect
    layers. Device level configurations involve handling of query
    requests which are used to modify and retrieve configuration
    information of the device.

    * UFS Transport Protocol(UTP) layer: UTP layer provides services for
    the higher layers through Service Access Points. UTP defines 3
    service access points for higher layers.
    - UDM_SAP: Device manager service access point is exposed to device
    manager for device level operations. These device level operations
    are done through query requests.
    - UTP_CMD_SAP: Command service access point is exposed to UFS command
    set layer(UCS) to transport commands.
    - UTP_TM_SAP: Task management service access point is exposed to task
    manager to transport task management functions.
    UTP transports messages through UFS protocol information unit(UPIU).

    * UFS Interconnect Layer(UIC): This is the lowest layer of UFS layered
    architecture. It handles connection between UFS host and UFS device.
    UIC consists of MIPI UniPro and MIPI M-PHY. UIC provides 2 service
    access points to upper layer,
    - UIC_SAP: To transport UPIU between UFS host and UFS device.
    - UIO_SAP: To issue commands to Unipro layers.

    The UFS host controller driver is based on Linux SCSI Framework.
    UFSHCD is a low level device driver which acts as an interface between
    SCSI Midlayer and PCIe based UFS host controllers.

    The current UFSHCD implementation supports following functionality,
    - UFS controller initialization: The initialization module brings UFS
    host controller to active state and prepares the controller to
    transfer commands/response between UFSHCD and UFS device.
    - UTP Transfer requests: Transfer request handling module of UFSHCD
    receives SCSI commands from SCSI Midlayer, forms UPIUs and issues
    the UPIUs to UFS Host controller. Also, the module decodes responses
    received from UFS host controller in the form of UPIUs and intimates
    the SCSI Midlayer of the status of the command.
    - UFS error handling: Error handling module handles Host controller
    fatal errors, Device fatal errors and UIC interconnect layer related
    - SCSI Error handling: This is done through UFSHCD SCSI error handling
    routines registered with SCSI Midlayer. Examples of some of the error
    handling commands issues by SCSI Midlayer are Abort task, Lun reset
    and host reset. UFSHCD Routines to perform these tasks are registered
    with SCSI Midlayer through .eh_abort_handler, .eh_device_reset_handler
    and .eh_host_reset_handler.

    In this version of UFSHCD Query requests and power management
    functionality are not implemented.

    This patchset is successfully applied on 3.3-rc4
