[PATCH v4 1/5] dt-bindings: PCI: brcmstb: brcm,{enable-l1ss,completion-timeout-us} props

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


This commit introduces two new properties:

brcm,enable-l1ss (bool):

  The Broadcom STB/CM PCIe HW -- a core that is also used by RPi SOCs --
  requires the driver probe() to deliberately place the HW one of three
  CLKREQ# modes:

  (a) CLKREQ# driven by the RC unconditionally
  (b) CLKREQ# driven by the EP for ASPM L0s, L1
  (c) Bidirectional CLKREQ#, as used for L1 Substates (L1SS).

  The HW+driver can tell the difference between downstream devices that
  need (a) and (b), but does not know when to configure (c).  All devices
  should work fine when the driver chooses (a) or (b), but (c) may be
  desired to realize the extra power savings that L1SS offers.  So we
  introduce the boolean "brcm,enable-l1ss" property to inform the driver
  that (c) is desired.  Setting this property only makes sense when the
  downstream device is L1SS-capable and the OS is configured to activate
  this mode (e.g. policy==superpowersave).

  This property is already present in the Raspian version of Linux, but the
  upstream driver implementaion that follows adds more details and discerns
  between (a) and (b).

brcm,completion-timeout-us (u32):

  Our HW will cause a CPU abort on any PCI transaction completion abort
  error.  It makes sense then to increase the timeout value for this type
  of error in hopes that the response is merely delayed.  Further,
  L1SS-capable devices may have a long L1SS exit time and may require a
  custom timeout value: we've been asked by our customers to make this
  configurable for just this reason.
