Subject: [PATCH v4 0/3] Merge m25p80 into spi-nor
Date: Thu, 1 Aug 2019 21:52:26 +0530
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This is repost of patch 6 and 7 split from from Boris Brezillon's X-X-X
mode support series[1]

Background from cover letter for RFC[1]:
m25p80 is just a simple SPI NOR controller driver (a wrapper around the
SPI mem API). Not only it shouldn't be named after a specific SPI NOR
chip, but it also doesn't deserve a specific driver IMO, especially if
the end goal is to get rid of SPI NOR controller drivers found in
drivers/mtd/spi-nor/ and replace them by SPI mem drivers (which would
be placed in drivers/spi/). With this solution, we declare the SPI NOR
driver as a spi_mem_driver, just like the SPI NAND layer is declared as
a spi_mem driver (patch 1/2).
This solution also allows us to check at a fined-grain level (thanks to
the spi_mem_supports_op() function) which operations are supported and
which ones are not, while the original m25p80 logic was basing this
decision on the SPI_{RX,TX}_{DUAL,QUAD,OCTO} flags only (patch 2/2).


Tested on TI' DRA7xx EVM with TI QSPI controller (a spi-mem driver) with
DMA (s25fl256) flash. I don't see any performance regression due to
bounce buffer copy introduced by this series
Also tested with cadence-quadspi (a spi-nor driver) driver
