Subject: [RFC PATCH net-next 0/4] net: wwan: Add Qualcomm BAM-DMUX WWAN network driver
Date: Mon, 19 Jul 2021 16:53:13 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210719145317.79692-1-stephan@gerhold.net> (raw)

The BAM Data Multiplexer provides access to the network data channels
of modems integrated into many older Qualcomm SoCs, e.g. Qualcomm MSM8916
or MSM8974. This series adds a driver that allows using it.

For more information about BAM-DMUX, see PATCH 4/4.

Shortly said, BAM-DMUX is built using a simple protocol layer on top of
a DMA engine (Qualcomm BAM DMA). For BAM-DMUX, the BAM DMA engine runs in
a quite strange mode that I call "remote power collapse", where the
modem/remote side is responsible for powering on the BAM when needed but we
are responsible to initialize it. The BAM is power-collapsed when unneeded
by coordinating power control via bidirectional interrupts from the
BAM-DMUX driver.

The series first adds one possible solution for handling this "remote power
collapse" mode in the bam_dma driver, then it adds the BAM-DMUX driver to
the WWAN subsystem. Note that the BAM-DMUX driver does not actually make
use of the WWAN subsystem yet, since I'm not sure how to fit it in there
yet (see PATCH 4/4).

Please note that all of the changes in this patch series are based on
a fairly complicated driver from Qualcomm [1].
I do not have access to any documentation about "BAM-DMUX". :(

The driver has been used in postmarketOS [2] on various smartphones/tablets
based on Qualcomm MSM8916 and MSM8974 for a year now with no reported
problems.

At runtime (but not compile-time), the following two patches are needed
additionally for full functionality:
