I just finished testing it. The results are about the same as with v1 of
this patch series:
Applying v2 of patch 1/6, 2/6 and 3/6 (or even 3/6 alone) does not fix
the RS-485 DMA bug. It behaves exactly the same as without these
patches, meaning the whole xmit circ_buf (UART_XMIT_SIZE bytes) is sent
out, as seen in the logic analyzer screenshots from my first bug report:
Applying the whole series does make a (small) difference though:
The first few transmissions after a fresh boot work correctly! However,
after a few transmissions, characters are sent out twice and longer
transmissions are garbled, although not in the same way as before. The
whole circ_buf is no longer sent out.
With all patches from this series applied, I see the following on the
logic analyzer, when calling "echo Test > /dev/ttymxc4":
(This pattern is not always the same, sometimes it is TeTesstt\n\n,
sometimes TeTesst\nt\n or TeTsestt\n\n and so on)
This behavior is reproducible on i.MX6Q and i.MX6D, not on i.MX6S/etc.,
I therefore assume that it is a SMP-/locking-related problem.
I will try to debug this further, and verify if - with this series
applied - xmit->tail is still jumping over xmit->head. And when exactly
this is happening.
Help is much appreciated!
