[PATCH v2 4/8] i2c: bcm2835: Can't support I2C_M_IGNORE_NAK
From: Noralf TrÃnnes
Date: Tue Sep 27 2016 - 08:00:14 EST
The controller can't support this flag, so remove it.
Documentation/i2c/i2c-protocol states that all of the message is sent:
Normally message is interrupted immediately if there is [NA] from the
client. Setting this flag treats any [NA] as [A], and all of
message is sent.
>From the BCM2835 ARM Peripherals datasheet:
The ERR field is set when the slave fails to acknowledge either
its address or a data byte written to it.
So when the controller doesn't receive an ack, it sets ERR and raises
an interrupt. In other words, the whole message is not sent.
