Subject: [PATCH] cpuidle: JZ4780: Add Ingenic JZ4780 cpuidle driver.
Date: Sat, 24 Jul 2021 17:19:59 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1627118399-125388-1-git-send-email-zhouyanjie@wanyeetech.com> (raw)

The JZ4780 has a high overhead to executing a MIPS wait on SMP, as a
core must flush out dirty cache lines from its data cache before doing
so. This is because the core clock is gated during a wait and if the
other core tries to access a dirty line from the waiting core's cache,
it will lock up.

To mitigate some of this impact, this driver provides a simple polling
top level idle state, to try to avoid the cache flushing overhead when
the wait will only be short. The second level state is implemented with
the MIPS wait instruction.

This patch first found in the github repository of CI20, the original
author is Alex Smith. Because there is a chance to cause kernel hang
scenarios which can occur within hours or even within days, so this
patch was abandoned, but now it is determined that this is not the
problem caused by this patch, but caused by the cache driver. With
the new Ingenic specific cache driver, it has been working properly
on CI20 v1 for more than one week.
