Hmm... changing the pull-up register will very likely change the
timings.

There's a logic at the driver that changes the I2C bus speed to
300k (with is non-standard):


/* I2C master bus 2 clock speed 300k */
ret = af9035_wr_reg(d, 0x00f6a7, 0x07);
if (ret < 0)
goto err;

/* I2C master bus 1,3 clock speed 300k */
ret = af9035_wr_reg(d, 0x00f103, 0x07);
if (ret < 0)
goto err;

Perhaps if we reduce the bus speed to 100k, the device will work
without the hacks.

I don't have af9035 datasheets. Perhaps Antti could shed some
light about how to change the speed to 100k, but on a quick search
at the Internet, I found this:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-media/1312539895.2763.33.camel@Jason-Linux/

With has a comment that explains how the I2C speed is calculated on those
ITE devices:

#define p_reg_one_cycle_counter_tuner 0xF103

/* Define I2C master speed, the default value 0x07 means 366KHz (1000000000 / (24.4 * 16 * User_I2C_SPEED)). */
#define User_I2C_SPEED 0x07

error =
it9135_write_reg(data, 0, PROCESSOR_LINK,
p_reg_one_cycle_counter_tuner, User_I2C_SPEED);

So, in summary, the value for the I2C speed register is given by:

I2C_speed_register = (1000000000 / (24.4 * 16 * I2C_speed))

So, for 100 kbps, the I2C speed register should be set with a value
close to ~25,6.

Doing the reverse math, we have:

I2C_speed_register = 25 -> I2C_speed = 102,46 kbps
I2C_speed_register = 26 -> I2C_speed = 98,52 kbps

So, if we do:

/* I2C master bus 2 clock speed ~100k */
ret = af9035_wr_reg(d, 0x00f6a7, 26);
if (ret < 0)
goto err;

/* I2C master bus 1,3 clock speed ~100k */
ret = af9035_wr_reg(d, 0x00f103, 26);
if (ret < 0)
goto err;

The bus speed will reduce to 98,52 kbps, with is a typical nominal
value for I2C tuners and other devices. With that, the device should
probably work fine without needing to replace the pull up resistor.

Ok, tuner firmware load would be ~3,7 times slower, but this is
something that we do just once need a firmware).

All other I2C messages are short enough to not cause any real difference.


Could you please test the enclosing patch and see if, with that, you
can remove the hacks you added for the tuner probe to work?

Mauro

[PATCH] media: af9035: slow down I2C bus speed on it930x devices

We have a few reports about tuner probing instability with
some it930x devices.

As it is better safe than sorry, let's slow down the I2C,
using the formula found at an old patch:
