Re: [PATCH/RFC] UART driver for PNX8550/8950 revised

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


Hello Russell,

serial_pnx8xxx.h just contains structure and register definitions for
this driver - wouldn't it make more sense for it to be in drivers/serial
along side this driver?

Well it's used in arch/mips/philips/... so I doubt it's a right thing
to move it to drivers/serial.
I'd rather put it into include/asm-mips/mach-pnx8550 but it's gonna be
shared between this and other similar SoCs (when/if they are submitted
into mainline) so I'm not sure about that either.

What is uart.h?  It isn't in this patch, neither is it part of mainline.
I guess it's include/asm-mips/arch-pnx8550/uart.h, but it is not
needed and will be removed in the next version :)

Still not using read_status_mask here, as detailed in my previous review.

                        status &= sport->port.read_status_mask;

is what's missing.

Oh, got it now, thanks.

This comment's not correct - where is the break condition disabled?
I thought it might be in the next serial_out() but it seems to be
missing from there as well?

I don't think you're right here - break condition is also disabled
unsetting the corresponding bit in  IEN register for this particular

How about CREAD support?

I'll add it to the new version.
