[PATCH v2] MHI event ring priority updates
From: Bhaumik Bhatt
Date: Fri Jun 18 2021 - 18:05:31 EST
Event ring priorities have remained out of use and are set to 1 by default.
This series brings about an enum entry expanding use of the priority field by
adding high priority tasklet scheduling to the menu.
In some cases, tasklet scheduling delays can be a nuisance. An example would be
ath11k adding a610f3c65d3b ("bus: mhi: Wait for M2 state during system resume")
in response to it. This issue can be potentially avoided if the controller uses
a dedicated event ring for control packets with high priority tasklet scheduling
There are no functional changes added to the controller (pci_generic or ath11k)
drivers with this series and the only changes there are use of the enum in place
of a harcoded value of "1". In the future, controllers can opt in to have any
event ring scheduled in high priority.
Tested on: X86_64 architecture with SDX65 on Ubuntu 18.04 distribution.
-Remove enum and update kernel doc for priority simplifying the implementation
-Drop patches for controller changes as they become unnecessary
-Merge adding and enabling of support patches
