Subject[PATCH 3.4 028/176] i2c: davinci: generate STP always when NACK is received
From: Grygorii Strashko <>

3.4.107-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 9ea359f7314132cbcb5a502d2d8ef095be1f45e4 upstream.

According to I2C specification the NACK should be handled as follows:
"When SDA remains HIGH during this ninth clock pulse, this is defined as the Not
Acknowledge signal. The master can then generate either a STOP condition to
abort the transfer, or a repeated START condition to start a new transfer."
[I2C spec Rev. 6, 3.1.6:]

Currently the Davinci i2c driver interrupts the transfer on receipt of a
NACK but fails to send a STOP in some situations and so makes the bus
stuck until next I2C IP reset (idle/enable).

For example, the issue will happen during SMBus read transfer which
consists from two i2c messages write command/address and read data:

S Slave Address Wr A Command Code A Sr Slave Address Rd A D1..Dn A P
<--- write -----------------------> <--- read --------------------->

The I2C client device will send NACK if it can't recognize "Command Code"
and it's expected from I2C master to generate STP in this case.
But now, Davinci i2C driver will just exit with -EREMOTEIO and STP will
not be generated.

Hence, fix it by generating Stop condition (STP) always when NACK is received.

This patch fixes Davinci I2C in the same way it was done for OMAP I2C
commit cda2109a26eb ("i2c: omap: query STP always when NACK is received").
