Complete list here, and it is inconsistent. Latest 8550 is also =y. Do we document
the reasons somewhere on why they are added as =y?
If the device can boot (to console/initramfs) with =m, we go with that.
But if something critical like the UART depends on the interconnect
provider, then we make it built-in.
On SM8550 for example, we have enabled bandwidth scaling support for QUP
and that's why it needs to be =y.
It looks like on SM4450 this should be =y too.
I asked why SM4450 has to be =y and there was no answer. The argument
that SM8450 is a module, is not applicable.
From the hardware description i see in patch 7, the serial engine depends
on some interconnect provider. But as the serial console driver is only
available as built-in, the interconnect provider also needs be built-in
for the UART device to probe and register the console.
So the answer to your question should be that this is needed by the UART
device (at least).
Such details of course deserve to be mentioned in the commit message of
If you mean here the debug UART with console, then it is the same valid
reason as in my change for others. This should be mentioned in commit msg.
yes, will mention this valid reason in next patch commit message detailly.
Thx and BRs,
