Subject[PATCH v4 0/7] Add TI EMIF SDRAM controller driver
Date
Add a driver for the EMIF SDRAM controller used in TI SoCs

EMIF is an SDRAM controller that supports, based on its revision,
one or more of LPDDR2/DDR2/DDR3 protocols.This driver adds support
for LPDDR2.

The driver supports the following features:
- Calculates the DDR AC timing parameters to be set in EMIF
registers using data from the device data-sheets and based
on the DDR frequency. If data from data-sheets is not available
default timing values from the JEDEC spec are used. These
will be safe, but not necessarily optimal
- API for changing timings during DVFS or at boot-up
- Temperature alert configuration and handling of temperature
alerts, if any for LPDDR2 devices
* temperature alert is based on periodic polling of MR4 mode
register in DDR devices automatically performed by hardware
* timings are de-rated and brought back to nominal when
temperature raises and falls respectively
- Cache of calculated register values to avoid re-calculating
them

The driver will need some minor updates when it is eventually
integrated with Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS).
This can not be done now as DVFS support is not available in
the mainline yet.

Discussions with Santosh Shilimkar <santosh.shilimkar@ti.com>
were immensely helpful in shaping up the interfaces. Vibhore Vardhan
<vvardhan@gmail.com> did the initial code snippet for thermal
handling.

Testing:
- The driver is tested on OMAP4430 SDP.
- The driver in a slightly adapted form is also tested on OMAP5.
- Since mainline kernel doesn't have DVFS support yet,
testing was done using a test module.
- Temperature alert handling was tested with simulated interrupts
and faked temperature values as testing all cases in real-life
scenarios is difficult.
- Tested the driver as a module

v4:
- Converted instances of EXPORT_SYMBOL to EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL
- Removed un-necessary "#ifndef __ASSEMBLY__'
- Minor formatting fix

v2:
- Fixed a bug found in the implementation of errata i728
workaround
- Fixed the value of frequency printed in debugfs
- Dropped the hwmod patch as Paul has already posted a
a hwmod series [1] that adds hwmod for EMIF
- Converted instances of __init to __init_or_module
