[PATCH] scsi: ufs: qcom: Clarify comments about the initial phy_gear

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The comments that currently are within the hw_ver < 4 conditional
are misleading. They really apply to various branches of the
conditionals there and incorrectly state that the phy_gear value
can increase.

Right now the logic is to:

    * Default to max supported gear for phy_gear
    * Set phy_gear to minimum value if version < 4 since those versions
      only support one PHY init sequence (and therefore don't need reinit)
    * Set phy_gear to the optimal value if the device version is already
      populated in the controller registers on boot

Let's move some of the comment to outside the if statement and clean up
the bit left about switching to a higher gear on reinit. This way the
comment more accurately reflects the logic.
