Subject[PATCH 0/4] new driver for TI eQEP
This series adds device tree bindings and a new counter driver for the Texas
Instruments Enhanced Quadrature Encoder Pulse (eQEP).

As mentioned in one of the commit messages, to start with, the driver only
supports reading the current counter value and setting the min/max values.
Other features can be added on an as-needed basis.

The only other feature I am interested in is adding is getting time data in
order to calculate the rotational speed of a motor. However, there probably
needs to be a higher level discussion of how this can fit into the counter
subsystem in general first.

This series has been tested on a BeagleBone Blue with the following script:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

from os import path
from time import sleep

COUNTER_PATH = '/sys/bus/counter/devices'
COUNTERS = ['counter0', 'counter1', 'counter2']
COUNT0 = 'count0'
COUNT = 'count'
CEILING = 'ceiling'
FLOOR = 'floor'
ENABLE = 'enable'

cnts = []

for c in COUNTERS:
enable_path = path.join(COUNTER_PATH, c, COUNT0, ENABLE)
with open(enable_path, 'w') as f:
ceiling_path = path.join(COUNTER_PATH, c, COUNT0, CEILING)
with open(ceiling_path, 'w') as f:

cnt_path = path.join(COUNTER_PATH, c, COUNT0, COUNT)
cnts.append(open(cnt_path, 'r'))

while True:
for c in cnts:
val = int(
if val >= 0x80000000:
val -= 0x100000000
print(val, end=' ')
