[RFC PATCH v2 0/3] bluetooth/gnss: GNSS support for TiWi chips

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


Some of these chips have GNSS support. In some vendor kernels
a driver on top of misc/ti-st can be found providing a /dev/tigps
device which speaks the secretive Air Independent Interface (AI2) protocol.

To be more compatible with userspace send out NMEA by default but
allow a more raw mode by using a module parameter.

This was tested on the Epson Moverio BT-200.

Changes since V1:
- Set up things for NMEA output
- Powerup/down at open()/close()
- split out logic between drivers/bluetooth and drivers/gnss
- leave out drivers/misc/ti-st driver removal to avoid
  filling up mailboxes during the iterations, this series is
  still a proof that it is not needed, will take the brush after
  this series is accepted.

Andreas Kemnade (3):
  gnss: Add AI2 protocol used by some TI combo chips.
  bluetooth: ti-st: Add GNSS subdevice for TI Wilink chips
  gnss: Add driver for AI2 protocol
