[PATCH RFC 0/4] RISC-V: Add basic eMMC support for BeagleV Ahead

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


This series adds initial support for the eMMC on the BeagleV Ahead
board. This allows the kernel to boot with the root fs on eMMC.

I tested [1] on top of v6.5-rc3 along with the prerequisite series [2]
that adds the BeagleV Ahead dts file.

I am submitting this as an RFC for other people that want to boot
mainline Liunx from the eMMC. There several issues that need to be
addressed in order to claim that MMC fully supported on TH1520:

  - Only the MMC controller connected to the eMMC is enabled. I did
    not attempt to configure or use the microSD card slot.

  - The new th1520 compatible in the sdhci-of-dwcmshc driver turns off
    DMA and just uses the inefficient PIO mode, because I did not yet
    get into the correct configuration for DMA support.

  - The new th1520 compatible in sdhci-of-dwcmshc turns the reset op
    into a no-op. The vendor boot loader [3] fully configures the mmc
    controller and the phy. The kernel does not yet know how to do that
    so it avoids doing a reset. This is essentially a hack and not the
    correct way to handle the situation.

Fortunately, Jisheng is the original author of sdhci-of-dwcmshc so I
am sure Jisheng will know many ways in which this can be improved.

NOTE: I combined schema, dts and driver patches into this one series for
the purposes discussing the RFC but that is probably not the correct
structure for a real patch series.
