Subject: RE: [x86-power-control]: press the power button for a long time that can't force turn off system power

Hi Andrew,

That means I'm able to choose one of following 2 options to achieve pass-through behavior when I using x86-power-control package, is my understanding correct?

1. Add code to re-enable GPIOP0 and GPIOP1 into a pass-through function after they are requested as a GPIO function in the x86-power-control package. (Or maybe to create a script with "devmem > 0x1e6e24BC 32 0x0F000000" command that will be run automatically after system up to change register directly.)

2. Modify pinctrl in Kernel that will not disable GPIOP0 and GPIOP1's pass-through function if they already are configured as a pass-through when they are requesting as a GPIO function.

Requesting the pin as GPIO removes the pass-through mux configuration.

If you want the pass-through behaviour when you obtain the pin as a GPIO then you need to also do that in software by requesting the GPIOP1 pin and setting it to the state of the GPIOP0 pin when GPIOP0 changes.

This is a limitation of the kernel, though I'm open to ideas on how to avoid it.

Separately, I encourage you to encourage the author of the kernel patch that added pass-through support to send their changes upstream.

I think it's possible to sense the input pin state even in the pass-through configuration, but at the point where you request the GPIO via pinctrl we've lost the intent of the request and the mux configuration mustn't assume any particular mode of use. As such it disables the pass-through mode and puts GPIOP0 in regular GPIO mode.
