Subject[PATCH v6 00/11] Cros EC sensor hub FIFO support
Date
This patchset adds a sensorhub driver for spreading sensor
events coming from the Embedded controller sensor FIFO:

+---------------+ +--------------+ +----
| cros_ec_accel | | cros_ec_gyro | | ...
+---------------+ +--------------+ +----
id:0 \ id:1 | / id:..
+------------------------------+
| cros-ec-sensorhub |
+------------------------------+
| cros_ec_dev |
+------------------------------+
| cros_ec_i2c, cros_ec_lpc, .. |
+------------------------------+
|
EC

When new sensors events are present, the EC raises and interrupt,
sensorhub reads the FIFO and uses the 'id' field to spread the event to
the proper IIO sensors. This stack is similar to the HID sensor input
stack.

The patch set allows the host to receive MEMS sensor sample
asynchronously from ChromeOS Emebedded Controller (EC).

Given the EC and the host are not synchronized, the timestamp generated
by the EC drifts and the AP interrupt latency adds variable delay.

When events arrive, the driver stores the time of the interrupt and use
that information to convert the timestamp from the EC time domain to the
AP time domain. To prevent the errors from the interrupt time variation,
a median filter smooth the timestamp generation and prevents timestamps
to go in the past.

When a batch of sensor events arrives, the sensor hub ring code spreads
the timestamps.

The buffer interaface is presentid through the IIO ABI.
And extra parameter - flush - (presents on HID and ST sensor hub
implementation) force the EC to send accumulated events in its queue,
without waiting for buffer hwfifo_timeout to expire.

To access sensor data, we can use iio_readdev like:
iio_readdev -T 10000 -s 4 -b 2 iio:device4

When FIFO is not supported by the EC, a trigger is present in the
directory. After registering a trigger, setting sampling_frequency,
the latest data collected by the sensor will be retrieved by the host
when the trigger expires.

When cros_ec_accel_legacy driver is used, no FIFO is supported and the
sampling frequency for the accelerometers is hard coded at 10Hz.

Gwendal Grignou (11):
platform: chrome: sensorhub: Add FIFO support
platform: chrome: sensorhub: Add code to spread timestmap
platform: chrome: sensorhub: Add median filter
iio: cros_ec: Move function description to .c file
iio: expose iio_device_set_clock
iio: cros_ec: Register to cros_ec_sensorhub when EC supports FIFO
iio: cros_ec: Remove pm function
iio: cros_ec: Expose hwfifo_timeout
iio: cros_ec: Report hwfifo_watermark_max
iio: cros_ec: Use Hertz as unit for sampling frequency
iio: cros_ec: flush as hwfifo attribute
