[PATCH v6 00/23] drm: Analog TV Improvements

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



Here's a series aiming at improving the command line named modes support,
and more importantly how we deal with all the analog TV variants.

The named modes support were initially introduced to allow to specify the
analog TV mode to be used.

However, this was causing multiple issues:

  * The mode name parsed on the command line was passed directly to the
    driver, which had to figure out which mode it was suppose to match;

  * Figuring that out wasn't really easy, since the video= argument or what
    the userspace might not even have a name in the first place, but
    instead could have passed a mode with the same timings;

  * The fallback to matching on the timings was mostly working as long as
    we were supporting one 525 lines (most likely NSTC) and one 625 lines
    (PAL), but couldn't differentiate between two modes with the same
    timings (NTSC vs PAL-M vs NSTC-J for example);

  * There was also some overlap with the tv mode property registered by
    drm_mode_create_tv_properties(), but named modes weren't interacting
    with that property at all.

  * Even though that property was generic, its possible values were
    specific to each drivers, which made some generic support difficult.

Thus, I chose to tackle in multiple steps:

  * A new TV mode property was introduced, with generic values, each driver
    reporting through a bitmask what standard it supports to the userspace;

  * This option was added to the command line parsing code to be able to
    specify it on the kernel command line, and new atomic_check and reset
    helpers were created to integrate properly into atomic KMS;

  * The named mode parsing code is now creating a proper display mode for
    the given named mode, and the TV standard will thus be part of the
    connector state;

  * Two drivers were converted and tested for now (vc4 and sun4i), with
    some backward compatibility code to translate the old TV mode to the
    new TV mode;

Unit tests were created along the way.

One can switch from NTSC to PAL now using (on vc4)

modetest -M vc4  -s 53:720x480i -w 53:'TV mode':1 # NTSC
modetest -M vc4  -s 53:720x576i -w 53:'TV mode':4 # PAL

Let me know what you think,

Changes in v6:
- Add and convert to a new get_modes helper to create the PAL and NTSC modes in
  the proper order, with the right preferred mode flag, depending on the driver
  capabilities and defaults.
- Support PAL60
- Renamed tests to be consistent with DRM tests naming convention
- Simplified a bit the named mode parsing code
- Add a tv_mode_specified field
- Return 0 in get_modes implementations instead of error codes
