Subject: [PATCH 12/18] tty: serial: 8250_dma: optimize the xmit path due to UART_BUG_DMA_TX
Date: Fri,  5 Sep 2014 21:02:47 +0200
Message-ID: <1409943773-7874-13-git-send-email-bigeasy@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1409943773-7874-1-git-send-email-bigeasy@linutronix.de>

Due to UART_BUG_DMA_TX the am335x has to put the first one byte into the
TX FIFO to get things going. If we get to serial8250_tx_dma() via
__dma_tx_complete() then the DMA engine just finished and the FIFO is
full and we can't put the first byte into the TX FIFO as kick start so
we leave with THRI enabled.
The result is that we end up manually filling the FIFO. We could be a
little better at this and try DMA once again. If it works, it works and
if not we do it manually.
