hm. what driver do you mean? at least
https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx/linux-imx/tree/drivers/irqchip/irq-imx-gpcv2.c?h=imx_4.19.35_1.0.0
seems not support imx8mq yet.

Hi Leonard, hi Abel,

Thanks for having a look! To sum up this problem and not to get confused:

We have the workaround that changes irq-imx-gpcv2 from this very email
thread, to be used with mainline ATF. when applying Abel's recent diff,
Linux 5.4 boots but I still don't have a cpuidle driver.

When I enable CONFIG_ARM_PSCI_CPUIDLE, the kernel hangs during boot
(after probing mmc, but that doesn't tell much)

What do I miss?


Then (in parallel) we have NXP's ATF:
https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx/imx-atf/log/?h=imx_4.19.35_1.0.0
that I test in parallel (and will actually want to have cpuidle right
now too). The workaround in Linux in that case looks like so:
https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx/linux-imx/commit/?h=imx_4.19.35_1.0.0&id=26a59057f88997dfe48ab7f81898ddd6b6d3903e
which changes irq-gic-v3 only.

Since 5.4, also no cpu-sleep state anymore. What would need to change in
that "NXP" case, for 5.4 to have cpuidle again?

When I enable ARM_PSCI_CPUIDLE here, right now Linux hangs during boot
(during probing sdhci but again that seems random).

I'm still happy for hints :)

Thanks,

martin
