SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] PM / devfreq: rk3399_dmc: Fix kernel oops when rockchip,pmu is absent
From
Date
Hi Enric,

Could you check this issue? Your patch[1] causes this issue.
As Marc mentioned, although rk3399-dmc.c handled 'rockchip,pmu'
as the mandatory property, your patch[1] didn't add the 'rockchip,pmu'
property to the documentation.

[1] 9173c5ceb035 ("PM / devfreq: rk3399_dmc: Pass ODT
and auto power down parameters to TF-A.")

Hi Marc,

You are right. We have to do two step:
1. Add missing explanation of 'rockchip,pmu' property to dt-binding document
2. If possible, add 'rockchip,pmu' property node to rk3399_dmc dt node.

When I tried to find usage example of 'rockchip,pmu' property,
I found them as following: The 'rockchip,pmu' property[2] indicates
'PMU (Power Management Unit)'.

$ grep -rn "rockchip,pmu" arch/arm64/boot/dts/
arch/arm64/boot/dts/rockchip/px30.dtsi:1211: rockchip,pmu = <&pmugrf>;
arch/arm64/boot/dts/rockchip/rk3399.dtsi:1909: rockchip,pmu = <&pmugrf>;
arch/arm64/boot/dts/rockchip/rk3368.dtsi:807: rockchip,pmu = <&pmugrf>;

If don't receive the any reply, I'll add as following:
