[PATCH v7 1/3] dt-bindings: PCI: brcmstb: Add property "brcm,clkreq-mode"

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


The Broadcom STB/CM PCIe HW -- a core that is also used by RPi SOCs --
requires the driver to deliberately place the RC HW one of three CLKREQ#
modes.  The "brcm,clkreq-mode" property allows the user to override the
default setting.  If this property is omitted, the default mode shall be

+      There are three different modes --
+      "safe", which drives the
+      refclk signal unconditionally and will work for all devices but does
+      not provide any power savings;
+      "no-l1ss" -- which provides Clock Power Management, L0s, and
+      L1, but cannot provide L1 substate (L1SS) power
+      savings. If the downstream device connected to the RC is
+      L1SS capable AND the OS enables L1SS, all PCIe traffic
+      may abruptly halt, potentially hanging the system;
+      "default" -- which provides L0s, L1, and L1SS, but not
+      compliant to provide Clock Power Management;
+      specifically, may not be able to meet the Tclron max
+      timing of 400ns as specified in "Dynamic Clock Control",
+      section of the PCIe spec.  This situation is
+      atypical and should happen only with older devices.
