SubjectRe: [Nouveau] [RFC 0/4] Implement full clockgating for Kepler1 and 2
From
Date
Unfortunately no. in order to support reclocking on Fermi with powergating
(which is important; since you can't test clockgating very well without it) we
are going to need to do some more investigation. Unlike Kepler and later
generations, Fermi seems to require some extra maintanence of it's clockgating
registers (CG_CTRL) during reclocking operations that we don't quite
understand yet. We'll figure it out, but I'd like to get out initial support
for Kepler first since I'm confident this series is pretty solid and it would
be good to get early feedback on this.
Plus, Fermi doesn't have working reclocking in nouveau just yet. I am planning
on eventually adding Fermi clockgating support when reclocking gets fixed!
