MPC8343 - serial8250: too much work
Date: Fri May 29 2009 - 16:07:20 EST
Im facing some problems with serial, linux-2.6.23, getting flooded
with this message in logs:
serial8250: too much work for irq16
Something I notice, in my .dts I have the following lines:
serial0: serial@4500, interrupts = <9 0x8>
serial1: serial@4600, interrupts = <10 0x8>
spi: spi@7000, interrupts = <16 0x8>
But when kernel starts:
Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
serial8250.0: ttyS0 at MMIO 0xe0004500 (irq = 16) is a 16550A
Why IRQ 16? Shouldn't it be IRQ 9?
I traced functions calls in 8250.c driver:
serial8250_interrup() -> serial8250_handle_port() -> transmit_chars()
"too much work" is for transmiting, but there's nothing to transmit.
In my MPC8343 board I have only serial0 connected to a MAX3232, serial1
I found this comments in linux/drivers/serial/8250.h, and tried to use
same defines that they used, but no success:
* Digital did something really horribly wrong with the OUT1 and OUT2
* lines on at least some ALPHA's. The failure mode is that if either
* is cleared, the machine locks up with endless interrupts.
* WindRiver did something similarly broken on their SBC8560 board. The
* UART tristates its IRQ output while OUT2 is clear, but they pulled
* the interrupt line _up_ instead of down, so if we register the IRQ
* while the UART is in that state, we die in an IRQ storm.
I also tried removing serial1 and spi from .dts, but didn't work.
