Subject答复: 答复: [PATCH v5 2/5] dt-bindings: s csi: ufs: add document for hisi-ufs
Date
Hi, Arnd
Sorry to bother you, some questions about this patch will trouble you to give some advice:
+ ufs: ufs@ff3b0000 {
+ compatible = "hisilicon,hi3660-ufs", "jedec,ufs-1.1";
+ /* 0: HCI standard */
+ /* 1: UFS SYS CTRL */
+ reg = <0x0 0xff3b0000 0x0 0x1000>,
+ <0x0 0xff3b1000 0x0 0x1000>;
+ interrupt-parent = <&gic>;
+ interrupts = <GIC_SPI 278 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
+ clocks = <&crg_ctrl HI3660_CLK_GATE_UFSIO_REF>,
+ <&crg_ctrl HI3660_CLK_GATE_UFSPHY_CFG>;
+ clock-names = "clk_ref", "clk_phy";
+ freq-table-hz = <0 0>, <0 0>;
+ /* offset: 0x84; bit: 12 */
+ /* offset: 0x84; bit: 7 */
+ resets = <&crg_rst 0x84 12>,
+ <&crg_rst 0x84 7>;
+ reset-names = "rst", "assert";
+ };

1. our UFS host soc implementation can be divided into two parts: UFS controller and related peripheral circuit, that "HCI standard"<-> UFS controller, "UFS SYS CTRL"<-> related peripheral circuit, and PHY is part of the peripheral circuit. So the "UFS SYS CTRL" area does not correspond completely to what Qualcomm have described as their PHY implementation. In fact, we do not have an independent register space to control the PHY.

2. From our soc chip colleague, "rst", "assert" is not generic and related with our soc implementation. In fact,it is not just a rst and assert of the UFS controller, but for the entire UFS IP ,so I don't think it's very helpful for others.

I think the above places will be reserved, do you have any better advices.

Thank you very much.

Sorry for the delay, I was travelling last week.

One more thing I just noticed: you don't describe the device as compatible with the ufshcd spec as defined in the generic binding. Shouldn't we have both compatible strings listed here?

Ok, I will fix it in patch v6;

I'm not sure I understand here. Do you mean the reset handle is for resetting the PHY rather than the UFS HCD?

Maybe my description is not clear enough, our UFS host soc implementation can be divided into two parts: UFS controller and related peripheral circuit, that "HCI standard"<-> UFS controller, "UFS SYS CTRL"<-> related peripheral circuit, and PHY is part of the peripheral circuit. So the "UFS SYS CTRL" area does not correspond completely to what Qualcomm have described as their PHY implementation.
The root reason is that our UFS host had not divided into UFS controller and PHY;

ok

Thanks.

It seems odd that the ability to reset a device is specific to your implementation. What I meant is that other implementations may also require a reset, so describing the way you refer to this into the generic binding would be helpful, to prevent others from adding another incompatible way to do the same thing.

A lot of generic bindings have a reference to a reset controller that if present needs to be used before first accessing the device itself.

I mean our reset process is really special, but there is no parse of this "reset" in generic driver code like ufshcd.c or ufshcd-pltfrm.c; Even if I add those to ufshcd-pltfrm.txt and implement the common parsing code, but our special requirements are difficult to satisfy; What do you think about if I put all the implementations of reset in our driver code, and remove "reset" property here?

Ok.
