[patch][rfc] 8250_early: Too early for ioremap

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Gyorgy Jeney

Let the individual architectures define the function to use to remap the mmio-
range that will be used by the 8250_early driver.  This is needed because, the
default, ioremap() is non-functional when the 8250_early driver initialises.

Signed-off-by: Gyorgy Jeney <[email protected]>


The 8250_early driver gets used early in the boot process, when the full-blown
ioremap() function is still unavailible.  The logical looking solution would be
to simply s/ioremap/bt_ioremap/, s/iounmap/bt_iounmap/ but the only port in the
2.6.14 kernel that has that function is i386.  Those functions look pretty
generic so perhaps they could be moved to mm/bootmem.c or something but they
rely on fixmap to be availibe which is only availible on 9 out of 25 archs.
The best I could come up with is the attached "hack".

Since the mmio code does appear in 8250_early I'm guessing that it works for
someone out there, which means this change is wrong..  How do I get 8250_early
to use MMIO cleanly?
