Subject: [PATCH 14/18] tty: serial: 8250_dma: handle the when UART response while DMA remains idle
Date: Fri,  5 Sep 2014 21:02:49 +0200
Message-ID: <1409943773-7874-15-git-send-email-bigeasy@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1409943773-7874-1-git-send-email-bigeasy@linutronix.de>

Sometimes the OMAP UART does not signal the DMA engine to unload the FIFO.
Usually this happens when we have >threshold bytes in the FIFO
and start the DMA transfer. It seems that in those cases the UART won't
trigger the transfer once the requested threshold is reached. In some
rare cases the UART does not trigger the DMA transfer even if programmed
while the FIFO was empty.
In those cases the UART drops an RDI event and we have to empty the FIFO
manually. If we ignore it because the DMA transfer is programmed then we
will enter the function a few times until we receive the RX_TIMEOUT
event. At that point the FIFO is usually full and we risk to overflow
the FIFO.
