[PATCH V2 0/3] Add support for gpio expander pca9505 used on Mirabox
From: Gregory CLEMENT
Date: Mon Jan 07 2013 - 17:51:40 EST
This patch set adds the support for the i2c gpio expander pca9505 used
on the JTAG/GPIO box which can be connected to the Mirabox.
To be able to use the pca9505 I had to do several changes in the
driver. Indeed, until now the pca953x driver accessed all the bank of
a given register in a single command using only a 32 bits
variable. This expander comes with 40 GPIOs which no more fits in a 32
variable. This patch set makes the accesses to the registers more
generic by relying on an array of u8 variables. This fits exactly the
way the registers are represented in the hardware.
Once the per-bank representation was added, it was easier to introduce
helpers to access to a single register of a bank instead of reading or
writing all the banks for a given register. As the GPIO API allows
only the accesses to a single GPIO at a time there was no point to read
and write all the other banks. Hence it should help to decrease the
latency especially for the pca9505.
However as the block GPIO API from Roland Stigge is incoming I kept
the helpers used to access all the banks in the same time. I had to
make some modifications in the arguments that these functions
received, so it will have a conflict here. Currently my patch set is
based on v3.8-rc2, but I am willing to rebase onto gpio-for-next once
the GPIO block will be merged into it.
I also expected some tested-by as I was only able to test the pca9505
and I didn't test the IRQ part.
After the first feedback from Maxime Ripard I made some change in the
patch set. Now accessing GPIO should work at least on pca9555, and the
driver is compiling when IRQ is enable.
I have also updated the branch gpio-pca9505 available at:
- Fix the way to calculate the shift used to apply to register to
access a given bank.
- Fix all the pending issue in the IRQ part which appeared once I have
