    Solved - H3 SPI with DMA using mainline kernel

    Using the dev build of Armbian for the OrangePi One, does the SPI driver in the mainline kernel support DMA? According to the mainline status page the work on SPI is done, and DMA has been supported since 4.2 I have enabled the spi interface in the device tree and my driver initialises properly with the master. But in my kernel driver I attempt to allocate some memory with dma_alloc_coherent and it fails. The driver works fine with the legacy kernel and with alternative hardware (raspberry pi). Is there some additional configuration needed or does anyone have any pointers to information on this that I look at? --edit Solved it - the mainline driver doesn't like the GFP_DMA flag being present on the dma_alloc_coherent call.

    Mainline A10/A20 audio driver

    Looks like A10/A20 audio codec support got merged to linux-next tree. Igor, can you please add these patches? I'll try to find all related bits. There are too many commits to link them one by one. Here is merge commit, it's easier to remove not needed bcm2835 and sun6i stuff from it.

    SPI issue with Banana Pro/A20

    Hi all, there is an issue with SPI on a Banana Pro (A20). I am on mainline kernel 4.5.5 now, but the problem already occurred on 3.4.109. SPI transfers are way to slow for my application, independently from the SPI clock. Investigating the SPI signals it turned out that there is an enormous delay between CS going active (low) and the transmission starting. The delay is in the magnitude of 10...20 usec which is a large multiple of the pure transmission time, so increasing the SPI clock does not solve the problem. The connected device is an SPI TFT display, so I have to send a large number of SPI words of 2 bytes each, where CS must toggle after each word (required by the target device). Consequently, the transmission of a large amount of data takes about several hundred times longer than required. I am not a driver expert, but I have looked into the source code of spi_sun4i.c which is the low level driver used for the A20 as far as I know. Here it seems, that the CS signal is under software control, i.e. it is handled as a normal GPIO. CS must be set/cleared by an explicit function call. I wonder, if this is the reason for the large delay. I found a quick-and-dirty workaround, where somebody configured the SPI controller directly via /dev/mem (i.e. bypassing kernel driver) and kept CS under hardware control, so the delay between CS and start of transmission is only some hundred nanoseconds. Now I am thinking of a modification of the SPI low level driver to keep CS under hardware control as well. However, I am not sure if this is a solution to my problem. Does anybody have a similar experience or a better idea than kernel modification? Any comments are welcome :-) Thanks

    eth0 configuration lost

    Hi, not sure if this problem is related to Armbian, but in my case it occurs only on an Armian system. I have mainline kernel (4.7.x) running on a Banana Pro. wlan is configured as access point and works without any problems. eth0 is configured as client with static IP. The Banana is running 24/7, but the ethernet port is used only sporadically. The switch where eth0 is connected to is powered down most time. The problem is that eth0 forgets its IP configuration after a while, ifconfig then reports no IP address for eth0. I have to login via wlan and then ifdown/ifup eth0, then it works again. After a couple of hours (I dont know exactly how long), the IP is lost again. What is going wrong here?
  6. I am having the exact same hw configuration as described here. I am using latest (stable) mainline kernel 4.0.5, SPI is enabled in DTB like this: spi0: spi@01c05000 { pinctrl-names = "default"; pinctrl-0 = <&spi0_pins_a>; status = "okay"; spi0_0 { #address-cells = <1>; #size-cells = <0>; compatible = "spidev"; reg = <0>; spi-max-frequency = <50000000>; }; }; I am loading the driver like this and the displays back light goes on - so far is o.k. modprobe fbtft_device name=adafruit22a rotate=90 speed=4800000 fps=30 gpios=reset:272,led:226,dc:245 busnum=32766 This way, with different GPIOS numbers and without busnum parameter works perfectly well on kernel 3.4.x Kernel output when loading the driver on 4.0.5 [27880.540870] fbtft: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.

    Kernel compilation and device tree

    Hi! I'm testing the image for cubieboard (A10 SOC) onto my MK 802 II and the legacy kernel is working fine (USB, OGT, WIFI, HDMI...) I just have changed the script.bin I'm reading some documentation about the device trees and I don't understand how you compile the vanilla kernel. Sorry if is a stupid questions but my board has his own .dts (sun4i-a10-mk802ii.dts), how you get a common vanilla kernel valid for all the configurations without using one specific .dts for each board? Probably I'm missing something very basic for ARM kernels, but this is my 1º aproach.
