Hello Community

I was referred to you by Martin. I have an older Android TV box that 
runs for over 3 years with Armbian Linux (Debian Jessie Headless Kernel 
3.10.99). I'm looking forward to the new kernels and I'm glad that older 
hardware is still supported.
Together with Oleg(balbes150) and Martin(xdarklight) I am testing the 
new kernel 5.x for ARM ( Amlogic S812 / Meson8m2 ) . Martin has written 
a patch for the SDIO controller in the last days so that also Wifi 
module and MMC are recognized. I could now successfully load the driver 
module RTLWIFI from the kernel. But unfortunately the card is only 
listed on the desktop as "not ready" or in the terminal (iwlist) as "no 
scan result". In the dmesg/lsmod RTLWIFI->RTL8723bs is loaded and the 
module is loaded with version v4.3.5.5_12290.20140916_BTCOEX20140507-4E40 .


I would like to ask you to check the driver because even in kernel 
3.10.99 a newer version (v4.3.16_13854.20150410_BTCOEX20150119-5844) is 
loaded and also at github are hard kernels ( version 2017 Kernel 4.9>) 
and ap17 and thirdyouth (v5.2.17.1_26955.20180307_COEX20180201-6f52). 
More recent ones can also be found - these have already been 
successfully tested with Debian 10. i hope that this may solve the 
problem with my Linux box.

I would appreciate feedback on this request or information about 
debugging . My Linux box is also available for testing purposes

Kindly
Tobias Baumann (RaptorSDS)

I just tried this on one of my Meson8b boards to see if it's some
problem with the MMC controller driver (meson-mx-sdio).
Here are my steps:
- (boot the board)
- ip link set up dev wlan0
- (wait until that finishes, it takes a while because it seems to load
the wifi firmware)
- iw dev wlan0 scan
- (wait a few seconds, then it shows many 2.4GHz wifi networks)
- wpa_passphrase MY_24GHz_WIFI_SSID > /tmp/wpa_supplicant_conf
- (enter the passphrase and press CTRL-D)
- wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c/tmp/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dnl80211 &
- (wait a couple more seconds for it to connect)
- dhcpcd wlan0
- then I ran iperf3, see the attached result
- then I ran dmesg | grep -Ei "(rtl8723bs|wlan0)", see the attached result

with these commands wifi is working "fine" for me.
my definition of fine: it connects to my AP and traffic can flow.
transfer speeds are on the low side (with 15Mbit/s and 5Mbit/s) but I
have no reference (for example from a vendor kernel) so I can't say if
that's to be expected.

I am not sure about any "desktop" tools and their behavior because I
don't use these.
can you please try the steps above and attach the output of the
"failing" commands (together with the dmesg output)?


Best regards,
Martin

Hi Tobias,

(adding back the original Cc list since that got lost at some point.
please keep them included)

GPIOAO_0 should work though (the underscore is important)

I have updated the GPIOs polarity of GPIOAO_6 and GPIOX_11 (since both
are showing inverse polarity compared to the Android kernel).
since I don't know if you build mainline yourself or if you use builds
from other people: I attached the updated .dtb so you can use that if
you want to

Please let me know if that fixes wifi for you.

hi martin

sorry for cc -problem it was my fault in thunderbird

thanks for dtb file but this file has problem kernel stop with

[    6.122092] mmc0: new high speed SDIO card at address 0001
[   35.804258] VCCK: disabling
[   35.808781] platform pwmleds: deferred probe pending
[   35.812625] platform sound: deferred probe pending

[  215.804295] random: crng init done

(last time deferred probe was gcc problem )

please can you provide me with dts file and i complile at my linux box 
or maybe only the change line and i use the dtb from image and edit the 
lines like the usb patch

thanks

Tobias

reason for that ;-)
I have changed the GPIO_ACTIVE_* polarity for the two GPIOs in the
sdio_pwrseq node if you want to do that by yourself.

hi martin

i activate your patch ; wlan works ;  also with only  edit GPIOX_11 wlan 
works

its now GPIO-402 out high ACTIVE_LOW  ( 3.3V on pin12)

i also attached the performance infos  Wlan0->Router and RAM->SDHC

great, thank you for doing the research!

did you find out if GPIOAO_6 is needed at all?
the 3.10 kernel enables it and sets it to HIGH. my understanding is
that you didn't change this one so the output is still LOW.
so I'm wondering if it is needed at all (I wouldn't be surprised if it
was not needed, these 3.10 kernel .dts files seem to be copy&pasted
from various vendors and do not necessarily reflect the actual
hardware setup inside the box)

> i also attached the performance infos  Wlan0->Router and RAM->SDHC
that's pretty good, great to see that it works fine for you :-)

good morning

i got the new image from oleg(balbes150) 20200518 RC5  and some more 
feedback

with my patch and oleg RC5 hotstart(shutdown now)  do not work with my 
box ( wlan goes back to sleep mode always)

with my patch chance  1 of 5 till 1 of 3 that my wlan is up and not 
sleep from cold start

with oleg chance 1 of 2 till 1of 3 from cold start that wlan is up  . 
(maybe because of phandle order?)

i thing there is maybe a timming problem between  wlan dis , sdio  data 
and  host wake up wlan .

it could be that GPIOAO_6 is the host wake up wlan ? is it possible to 
change the activation order for the gpio pins by change it in dts ?

Tobias

I'm not sure what you mean here.
if you run "shutdown now" then the system does not shut down and only
wifi goes to sleep mode?

the power sequence driver supports the following two properties, see [0]:
- post-power-on-delay-ms
- power-off-delay-us

Those are not set, meaning no delay is applied.
For reference, these are the delays which are used on the Endless Mini
(which also has a RTL8723BS module): [1]
Do you know more about these delays (whether they are needed and how
long they are supposed to be)?

please check my previous mails. I think that GPIOX_21 is the wifi host
wakeup pin because it is marked as "input" on the 3.10 kernel.
you can change the order of the GPIOs inside the sdio_pwrseq node, but
all GPIOs are managed together (meaning there's virtually no delay
between enabling the first and the second one).
I am not sure if using an MMC power sequence is the right thing to do,
because the card is detected for me regardless of whether GPIOX_11 is
HIGH or LOW. The RTL8723BS driver currently does not manage any GPIOs.

Hi Tobias,

I don't know how sleep mode is controlled (some GPIO or through SDIO
communication) so I can't comment on that

I don't have any additional comments on this one

do you have an oscilloscope or does your multimeter support frequency
measurements (based on what I understand it would only have to be
capable of measuring 32kHz)?
then you can prove or refute this :-)

> i have another question , do we use the same wifi.c file for the meson8m2 boxes as for endless mini ? i have taken a closer look at the file and the two delay information you are mention are not  in the wifi. c is neither a function nor an instance, it just takes two fixed values "mdelay(200)" line 156 , furthermore we ignore the output level of wifi_power_gpio2 and automatically set it to "1" line 378 , so it is important which of the two pins is passed to the header file first (translate with DEEPL)
Endless Mini has the CHIP_EN signal hard-wired to 3.3V
This is the .dts from the Endless Mini:
https://github.com/endlessm/linux-meson/blob/d628bf1242928927a41f7482ba5ef7295e01a9ff/arch/arm/boot/dts/meson8b-ec100.dts

[...]
> You are right the chip has only wifi wake host and that should be GPIOX_21 as input ; maybe on your box the pin is alway high  on the board  ( direkt an 3.3V verdrahtet)
on the Endless Mini GPIOX_21 is also WIFI_WAKE_HOST
I haven't tested any reboot / shutdown / etc. cycles with RTL8723BS
there yet because I typically use the sdio controller to access the
internal SD card (and at the time of writing the MMC subsystem in
Linux doesn't support two different cards with one MMC controller). So
only because of your email I did a quick test on the Endless Mini.


Best regards,
Martin
