Hi all,

With several more engineers working on ARM device tree support, I'm
going to start collecting the status of all the work that is going on
(and I know about) and posting it in a regular status report,
hopefully weekly, for the next few months until the all of the major
features are implemented and working on several arm platforms.  I'll
try to use roughly the following format:

1) latest news and status updates
2) list of tasks with current state and who is responsible for them in
the same format as Launchpad blueprint whiteboards[1]. (In fact, I'll
probably move much, if not all, of this into Launchpad anyway, in
which case these emails will be a summary of all the blueprints. not
all of us work with Linaro, but it is a useful method for tracking
progress).
3) List of active engineers

[1] https://wiki.linaro.org/Process/Blueprints

Please read through and reply with comments/corrections.  Feel free to
add or remove tasks from the list I've given below.

Thanks,
g.


1 - Latest news
---------------
- devicetree/arm on git://git.secretlab.ca/git/linux-2.6 has
everything needed to turn on basic device tree support for any
platform.
- Similarly, u-boot just needs to have the CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT defined to
turn on device tree support.
- IRQ handling is still a problem and only one interrupt controller
can be supported at the moment, but Lennert is working on a solution.
- I've posted a patch that will allow dt and non-dt device
registration to co-exist peacefully by snooping platform device
registrations.  I could use some feedback and testing.
- hopefully the basic dt support can be merged into Nicolas' tree this
week if I get a cleaned up branch pushed out for him quickly.

The dtb support in u-boot has been enabled but that has been done in
my copy of u-boot. The linaro u-boot does not include support for
s5pv310 yet.

> [thomas-ab] enable basic kernel dtb support on S5PV310: DONE?

Done and tested.

> [thomas-ab] make gpio driver dt-aware: TODO

Will do this as next task.

> ... add more details here, specific devices, etc...

The watchdog timer driver was modified to be probed from device tree
and it is working fine (will work for both dt and non-dt versions).
Other work items that will be taken up next are

- Retrieve the default UART register values from the device tree
during UART initialization.
- Add SDHCI_OF support for SDHCI s3c driver, required to support DT
enabled sdhci driver for s5pv310
- Initialize timer and GIC from dt.
- Support dt for gpio, i2c, spi, uart, srom controller.

Thanks,
Thomas.

Does this include the common clock framework that Jeremy had been working on?
I see no mention of that explicitly, hence the question.

Amit

I'm sorry that I'm a little behind primarily due to China Spring
Festival Holiday and recent mxs works.  I will try to catch up ASAP.

No, since the common clk patches are taking some time to get right,
the device tree clock bindings have been decoupled from the common clk
patches so that dt support doesn't get held up.  When common clk gets
merged, the dt support will be modified to use it.

Ok Grant, good to know. I did not have time to check how the bindings
changed, but at least for vexpress I was registering and binding clocks
from DT. Here is the vexpress list of tasks updated.

Versatile express tasks:
[lorenzo-pieralisi] enable dtb support in u-boot: DONE within Linaro ?
[lorenzo-pieralisi] enable basic kernel dtb support on versatile
express: DONE
[lorenzo-pieralisi] probe clocks from dt: DONE
[lorenzo-pieralisi] probe irq controllers from device tree: DONE (basic
GIC init - interrupt routing is not there yet)
[lorenzo-pieralisi] register devices from dt: 

Currently all vexpress platform devices are registered from the DT code,
but I have to rebase to see if things changed wrt test-devicetree 
branch.

They include:

smsc911x (mdio inclusive but pending code to probe irq type)
isp1760
flash physmap
amba-pl011
amba-clcd-pl11x
PMU
mmc-pl18x

The GIC and sp804 timers are also initialized from DT (they need not be
platform devices though).

Please let me know if you need further details.

Lorenzo
