SubjectRe: [PATCHv5 04/11] fbdev: ssd1307fb: Unify init code and obtain hw specific bits from DT
Hey Thomas,

awesome the time you put into this driver. It does what I was working on
the last few weeks, but with a much bigger bang ;)

I personally have a ssd1309 and will be submitting the patches for that
after testing your patch-set.

Aren't the height, width and page-offset also optional? They should be
set to sane defaults when not supplied. Though the default (which is the
max really) width/height depends on the actual attached display to the
chip (I mention this in the vcomh section too below, the controller's
width/height would be the absolute maximum values, the display can
always be smaller).

Same goes to say for the precharge, and probably other parameters. I
don't think we have a proper framework to handle the attached displays
to a controller chip at the moment anyhow?

Shouldn't this be par->com_invdir & 0x1 ?
The datasheet only mentions 1 bit change for the ssd1306, ssd1307 and
ssd1309. I dont' know what the ssd1305 does here though.

I had to look hard for this setting, as my old datasheet had omitted the
charge pump def.

but wouldn't you want something like (0x10 |
par->device_info->need_chargepump & 0x1 << 2) & 0x14 to follow your
previous styles?

Only bit 2 determines the state of the charge-pump. And I guess it
should be safe to use on the other chips as well. My 1309 doesn't seem
to have a problem with it, I'm working a lot on this display so it will
be tested thoroughly in the next few weeks.

This device info struct, is this really always fixed data? We use a
ssd1309 with a MI12864MO i think and the combination of these two parts
defines atleast the vcomh I would imagine? There are only a very limited
number of consumers of this driver so for now it won't make much of a
difference, just mentioning it as it is a configurable so it may matter
depending on the physical display.

While your re-doing the whole driver, why use a default page_offset of
1? 0 makes far more sense (its the default on my board also) and
logically, we'd start counting at 0 as programmers ;) Also, the
datasheet uses 0 as a default preset.

Why set the default to 0 here? The datasheet sets it to 0x2 by default
for example.

all the other parameters are somewhat abbreviated, or the property name
matches the variable name. I'd just abbreviate it to com-seq clear and
short.


Overal, the driver works and can have a Tested-by: Olliver Schinagl
<o.schinagl@ultimaker.com> from me (for the 1309 which I'll submit very
soon.

Olliver

P.S. Do you have a link for your display? I'm curious as to how it looks.
