Subject[PATCH 4.4 013/168] gpio: gpio-omap: fix level interrupt idling
[ Upstream commit d01849f7deba81f4959fd9e51bf20dbf46987d1c ]

Tony notes that the GPIO module does not idle when level interrupts are
in use, as the wakeup appears to get stuck.

After extensive investigation, it appears that the wakeup will only be
cleared if the interrupt status register is cleared while the interrupt
is enabled. However, we are currently clearing it with the interrupt
disabled for level-based interrupts.

It is acknowledged that this observed behaviour conflicts with a
statement in the TRM:

After servicing the interrupt, the status bit in the interrupt status
reset and the interrupt line released (by setting the corresponding
bit of the interrupt status register to 1) before enabling an
interrupt for the GPIO channel in the interrupt-enable register
the occurrence of unexpected interrupts when enabling an interrupt
for the GPIO channel.

However, this does not appear to be a practical problem.

Further, as reported by Grygorii Strashko <>,
the TI Android kernel tree has an earlier similar patch as "GPIO: OMAP:
Fix the sequence to clear the IRQ status" saying:

if the status is cleared after disabling the IRQ then sWAKEUP will not
be cleared and gates the module transition

When we unmask the level interrupt after the interrupt has been handled,
enable the interrupt and only then clear the interrupt. If the interrupt
is still pending, the hardware will re-assert the interrupt status.

Should the caution note in the TRM prove to be a problem, we could
use a clear-enable-clear sequence instead.
