From: Matthias Brugger <mbrugger@suse.com>

Define the OF early console for BCM2835 aux UART, which can be enabled
by passing "earlycon" on the boot command line. This UART is found on
BCM283x and BCM27xx SoCs, a.k.a. Raspberry Pi in its variants.

Does this really work?  I also tried to get it working recently and
the system just hung on boot.  Looking at it with a JTAG debugger
showed that the bcm2835aux registers were inaccessible because
the mini UART wasn't enabled in the AUXENB register.

Maybe if you use OF_EARLYCON_DECLARE, the firmware recognizes that
serial1 is set as stdout-path and performs enablement of the mini UART?
Or are you using U-Boot which perhaps does the enablement?

I also saw in the JTAG debugger that the uartclk member contained
an incorrect value, so I'd expect that it has to be set as well in
early_bcm2835aux_setup().

I'll see to it that I give this patch a whirl when I return to the
office next week.

Thanks,

Lukas

Yes I'm using U-Boot which enables the console for me. My understanding is that
the early console is thought as a re-use of the console the boot FW used for
logging. AFAIK for example it does not enable any needed clocks but expects
these to be enabled already.

Looking on the source code of U-Boot [1] I don't see that the AUXENB is written
somewhere, so I suppose that the FW should already has enabled the aux-uart.

I any case if it's just to set one bit, I think we can do that in
early_bcm2835aux_setup().

In my case the clock was set by U-Boot already.

I'm testing this by booting directly from RPi4's bootloader. And it
works as long as I add this to config.txt:

enable_uart=1
gpu_freq=500

Which AFAIK blocks frequency scalin on the GPU and fixes the clock to a
point where the serial is set at 115200 bauds.

Ideally it'd be nice to be able to query the clock frequency, and
recalculate the divisors based on that. But I don't know if it's
feasible at that point in the boot process.

We could maybe leave a comment explaining what is expected from the
bootloader, given the different options around.

Regards,
Nicolas

Well, we don't even support adjusting the baudrate *after* the kernel
has booted.

The problem is that in mainline, bcm2835_defconfig contains:
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_CONSERVATIVE=y

Likewise in the Foundation's downstream tree, bcmrpi_defconfig as well
as bcm2711_defconfig and bcm2709_defconfig contain:
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_POWERSAVE=y

In contrast to this, we set the following on Revolution Pi devices:
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_PERFORMANCE=y

Downclocking influences not only the uart1 baud rate but also the
spi0 clock.  We attach Ethernet chips to spi0, throughput was
significantly worse with the ondemand governor (which is what we
used previously).  We felt that maximum Ethernet performance
outweighs the relatively small powersaving gains.

Thanks,

Lukas

Don't 8250 uarts have a clk divisor? I've seen other 8250 earlycon
drivers do this (see 8250_ingenic.c), that said I think it's a lost
cause for us.

BTW did you had the oportunity to have a go at the patch?

In that regard I suggest you use the upstream cpufreq driver which
behaves properly in that regard. It disables GPU freq scaling, so as to
change CPU frequencies without SPI/I2C/UART issues.

Nicolas

I've just performed a quick test and it doesn't work for me.
If I add stdout-path = "serial1:115200n8"; to the chosen node,
I only get a regular console with this patch, not an earlycon.

Okay, I'll take a look.  But the uart1 baudrate will still be wrong
if the firmware downclocks because of overheating, right?

That's surprising, you're using u-boot isn't it? and the upstream device tree?

You're right, it might happen. The way I understand it you're bound to leave
the GPU at it's lower frequency if you want to use those peripherals and for
them to be reliable. You could technically try to empirically fine tune the CPU
thermal trip point so as to make sure the upstream kernel cpufreq downclock
always kicks in before videocore's one. I'd actually like to see someone try
that. However short of using an RT kernel It think you'll never be 100% sure it
can never happen.

Nicolas

My apologies for the delay.

We boot the kernel directly from the Foundation's bootloader without
U-Boot as intermediary, and we use the downstream DT and kernel
(with RT & custom patches).

As far as I could see, the 8250_bcm2835aux UART wasn't even found
when the kernel searched for available earlycons.  The compatible
string in the DT does match the one in Matthias' patch.

I notice that Greg has already applied the patch to tty/next.
I'm currently stretched a little thin but I'll debug this further
once the dust has settled here.

Thanks,

Lukas
