SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] gianfar: fix fiper alignment after resetting the time
From: Richard Cochran <>
Date: Sun, 7 Aug 2011 09:03:03 +0200

> After resetting the time, the PPS signals on the FIPER output channels
> are incorrectly offset from the clock time, as can be readily verified
> by a looping back the FIPER to the external time stamp input.
> Despite its name, setting the "Fiper Realignment Disable" bit seems to
> fix the problem, at least on the P2020.
> Also, following the example code from the Freescale BSP, it is not really
> necessary to disable and re-enable the timer in order to reprogram the
> FIPER. (The documentation is rather unclear on this point. It seems that
> writing to the alarm register also disables the FIPER.)
