Hi Tony

No, Currently i2c driver is set to subsys_initcall. I have seen some
problem while using pin control grab functionality. Please see detailed
explanation as below.

Hi Linus

I am using auto grab pin control facility to do pin muxing of I2C0
pins and seen problem as below:

Currently, probe of I2C0 driver gets called before pin control driver.
Hence, while calling I2C0 probe because of unavailability of
pin control node information, its probe get deferred giving following
messages:

"i2c_davinci i2c_davinci.1: could not find pctldev for node /soc/pinmux@1c14120
/pinmux_i2c0_pins, deferring probe"

As I2C0 is in deferred list (as auto grab patch handle this), its probe
get called once again, During this second time probe of I2C0, I have
observed following crash:

"Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address fffffe07"

As per code analysis of auto grab functionality, I have seen in
"pinctrl_bind_pin" function, pin control handle (dpi->p) is returned by
"devm_pinctrl_get" function.

Pin control handle is assigned with error pointer during 1st time probing of
I2C0 (as pin control information is not available at this time).
During 2nd time probing (deferred probe) of I2C0, same pin control handle
(which was get assigned during 1st probe) is getting used instead of getting
updated to correct pin control handle which leads to system crash.

I made following changes, in order to update "dip->p" pointer with
correct value:

- if (!dpi->p) {
+ if (IS_ERR_OR_NULL(dpi->p)) {
dpi->p = devm_pinctrl_get(dev);
- if (IS_ERR_OR_NULL(dpi->p)) {
- int ret = PTR_ERR(dpi->p);
-
- dev_dbg(dev, "no pinctrl handle\n");
- /* Only return deferrals */
- if (ret == -EPROBE_DEFER)
- return ret;
- return 0;
- }
+ ret = PTR_ERR(dpi->p);
+ dev_dbg(dev, "no pinctrl handle\n");
+ /* Only return deferrals */
+ if (ret == -EPROBE_DEFER)
+ return ret;
+ return 0;

Is this intended change? or am I missing something in order to use this auto grab
functionality?

With the above change, now deferred probing is working fine and there is no need
to register pin control driver in arch_initcall.


Regards,
Manish
