Subject[PATCH 0/2] mfd: Add Baikal-T1 SoC Boot Controller driver
From: Serge Semin <>

Baikal-T1 Boot Controller is an IP block embedded into the SoC and responsible
for the chip proper pre-initialization and further booting up from selected
memory mapped device. From the Linux kernel point of view it's just a multi-
functional device, which exports three physically mapped ROMs and a single SPI
controller interface.

Baikal-T1 can boot either from an external SPI-flash or from an embedded into
it firmware. So when the bootup from the SPI-flash is selected the flash memory
can be accessed either directly via the embedded into the Boot Controller DW
APB SSI controller registers or via a physically mapped ROM (which is just an
FSM IP-core interacting with the DW APB SSI controller by itself). Since both
of these interfaces are using the same SPI interface they can't be utilized
simultaneously. Instead the Boot Controller provides the access switching
functionality by means of the control register flag. That's why we need the
Boot Controller MFD driver provided by this patchset - in order to multiplex the
access to the DW APB SSI controller and SPI interface from two different

After this patchset is integrated into the kernel we'll submit two more
patchsets with physically mapped ROMs (due to some peculiarities we can't have
the already available in the kernel mtd-rom drivers) and SPI controller
(similarly the available in the kernel DW APB SSI driver isn't suitable for
our version of the SPI controller) drivers will be submitted for integration
into the mainline Linux kernel.

This patchset is rebased and tested on the mainline Linux kernel 5.6-rc4:
commit 98d54f81e36b ("Linux 5.6-rc4").
