Subject: [PATCH v5 0/4] USB: misc: Add onboard_usb_hub driver
Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2021 09:10:35 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This series adds the onboard_usb_hub_driver, the corresponding
device tree bindings and creation of onboard_usb_hub platform in
the xhci-plat driver during probe().

The main issue the driver addresses is that a USB hub needs to be
powered before it can be discovered. For discrete onboard hubs (an
example for such a hub is the Realtek RTS5411) this is often solved
by supplying the hub with an 'always-on' regulator, which is kind
of a hack. Some onboard hubs may require further initialization
steps, like changing the state of a GPIO or enabling a clock, which
requires even more hacks. This driver creates a platform device
representing the hub which performs the necessary initialization.
Currently it only supports switching on a single regulator, support
for multiple regulators or other actions can be added as needed.
Different initialization sequences can be supported based on the
compatible string.

Besides performing the initialization the driver can be configured
to power the hub off during system suspend. This can help to extend
battery life on battery powered devices which have no requirements
to keep the hub powered during suspend. The driver can also be
configured to leave the hub powered when a wakeup capable USB device
is connected when suspending, and power it off otherwise.

(no changes since v1)
