I have a ARM11 based SoC with SPI controller in it. The board
contains Spansion S25 SPI flash chip. I am writing the driver
for the SPI controller from scratch but i am missing something in
getting the Spansion chip to be detected. Please help.
Here are the steps.
- Controller driver - I registered a platform_device in the SoC core code.
For the same platform_device name i have a driver registered in
dir (similar to xilinx spi but no bitbang). The probe works fine. I have
platform_data with bus num and cs set to 0 and mode to SPI_MODE_3. (This
the default i use in u-boot and it works fine with Spansion)
- Now for the discrete spansion chip, i found that m25p80 code can be used
as it supports Spansion SPI as well. I loaded the driver but it does not
call m25p80_probe. The name of this driver is "m25p80".
I can understand why the driver did not start probing coz there is no
of the name "m25p80" the kernel aware of. But how do i register that
device and where
