Subject[PATCH 00/16] FSI device driver introduction
From: Chris Bostic <>

Introduction of the IBM 'Flexible Support Interface' (FSI) bus device
driver. FSI is a high fan out serial bus consisting of a clock and a serial
data line capable of running at speeds up to 166 MHz.

This set provides the basic framework to add FSI extensions to the
Linux bus and device models. Master specific implementations are
defined to utilize the core FSI function.

In Linux, we have a core FSI "bus type", along with drivers for FSI
masters and engines.

The FSI master drivers expose a read/write interface to the bus address
space. The master drivers are under drivers/fsi/fsi-master-*.c.

The core handles probing and discovery of slaves and slave
engines, using those read/write interfaces. It is responsible for
creating the endpoint Linux devices corresponding to the discovered
engines on each slave.

Slave engines are identified by an 'engine' type, and an optional
version. Engine, a.k.a. client, drivers are matched and bound to these
engines during discovery.

This patch set does not include extended FSI function such as:
* Hub master support
* Cascaded master support
* Application layer hot plug notification
* Application layer FSI bus status interface

Common FSI terminology:

* Master
Controller of the FSI bus. Only the master is allowed to control the
clock line and is the initiator of all transactions on a bus.

* Slave
The receiver or target of a master initiated transaction. The slave
cannot initiate communications on a bus and must respond to any
master requests for data.

Stands for Common Field replaceable unit Access Macro. A CFAM is an
ASIC residing in any device requiring FSI communications. CFAMs
consist of an array of hardware 'engines' used for various purposes.
I2C masters, UARTs, General Purpose IO hardware are common types of
these engines.

* Configuration Space / Table
A table contained at the beginning of each CFAM address space.
This table lists information such as the CFAM's ID, which engine types
and versions it has available, as well as its addressing range.

* FSI Engine driver
A device driver that registers with the FSI core so that it can access
devices it owns on an FSI bus.
