[PATCH v2 0/2] i2c: enable buses to save their clock frequency in adapter
Date: Mon Dec 10 2018 - 03:41:24 EST
From: Tudor Ambarus <tudor.ambarus@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
The clock-frequency property is not mandatory for the i2c buses. If it's
not present in the device tree, the buses __usually__ assume it's 100kHZ
(see altera, at91, axxia, etc.). Broadcom uses a 375kHZ default
clock-frequency, so the default clock frequency varies from bus to bus.
There are i2c clients that need to know the bus clock frequency in order to
compute their wake token (see atecc508a i2c client).
The clock-frequency value has to be propagated to the i2c clients, otherwise,
if they will not find the i2c bus clock frequency in the device tree, they
will have to make their own assumption of the clock frequency.
Spare the i2c clients of making wrong assumptions of the i2c bus clock
frequency and enable the buses to save their clock frequency in adapter.
v2: fix typo in R-b tag
since rfc: reword commit messages
