[PATCH v2 0/7] clk: meson: fix mpll jitter

From: Jerome Brunet
Date: Mon May 13 2019 - 08:32:58 EST

This patchset is a squash of these previous patchsets [0], [1] without
modification, beside a re-ordering of the changes to facilitate backports

We are observing a lot of jitter on the MPLL outputs of the g12a.
No such jitter is seen on gx family. On the axg family, only MPLL2
seems affected. This was not a problem so far since this MPLL output
is not used.

The jitter can be as high as +/- 4%.

This is a problem for audio application. This may cause distortion on
i2s and completely break SPDIF.

After exchanging with Amlogic, it seems we have activated (by mistake)
the 'spread spectrum' feature.

The 3 first patches properly set the bit responsible for the spread
spectrum in the mpll driver and add the required correction in the
related clock controllers.

When the g12a support has been initially submitted, the MPLL appeared
(overall) fine. At the time, the board I used was flashed with Amlogic
vendor u-boot. Since then, I moved to an early version on mainline
u-boot, which is likely to initialize the clock differently.

While debugging audio support, I noticed that MPLL based clocks were way
above target. It appeared the fractional part of the divider was not

To work properly, the MPLLs each needs an initial setting in addition to
a common one. No one likes those register sequences but sometimes, like
here for PLL clocks, there is no way around it.

The last 4 patches add the possibility to set initial register sequence
for the ee clock controller and the MPLL driver. It is then used to enable
the fractional part of the g12a MPLL.

As agreed with the clock maintainers, I'll submit a series to CCF to
remove the .init() callbacks and introduce register()/deregister()
callbacks later on (pinky swear).

Jerome Brunet (7):
clk: meson: mpll: properly handle spread spectrum
clk: meson: gxbb: no spread spectrum on mpll0
clk: meson: axg: spread spectrum is on mpll2
clk: meson: mpll: add init callback and regs
clk: meson: g12a: add mpll register init sequences
clk: meson: eeclk: add init regs
clk: meson: g12a: add controller register init
