Subject: [PATCH v11 0/4] AT91: replace old i2c-at91.c TWI driver
Date: Wed, 29 Aug 2012 09:28:41 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <cover.1346225321.git.n.voss@weinmann.de> (raw)

The old driver has two main deficencies:
i)  No repeated start (Sr) condiction is possible, this makes it unusable
    e.g. for most SMBus transfers.
ii) I/O was done with polling/busy waiting what caused over-/underruns
    even at light system loads and clock speeds.

The new driver overcomes these deficencies and in addition allows for
more than one TWI interface.

A remaining limitation is the fact, that only one repeated start is
possible (two concatenated messages). This limitation is imposed by
the hardware. However, this should not be a problem as all common
i2c-client communication does not rely on more than one repeated start.

Changes since v11:
- corrected wrong id_entry on sam9261 twi gpio pdev
