Subject[PATCH v5 0/4] gpio: mvebu: Add PWM fan support
Hi Therry,

Resending this as v5 with some minor changes since v4. What is missing is
an ACK from you so Linus can merge the driver and Gregory the dts
changes. For this driver to make it into 4.12 it would be nice to have
it in next soon. I hope you can make some room in your schedule to have
another look at this series.




About npwm = 1:
The only way I can think of to achieve that requires reading the
GPIO line from the device tree. This would prevent a user to
dynamically choose a line. Which is fine for the fan found on Mamba
but let's take some development board with freely accessible GPIOs
and suddenly we limit the use of this driver. Given the above, npwm
= ngpio with only one usable at a time is a more accurate
description of the situation. The only downside is some "wasted"

About the new compatible string:
Orion was chosen for the SoC variant for the same reason as in
commit 5f79c651e81e ("arm: mvebu: use global interrupts for GPIOs on
Armada XP").
The "pwm" property remains optional for the new compatible string so
the compatiple string "marvell,armada-370-xp-gpio" can be used by
all and not just the first two GPIO chips. A property to select "Set
A" / "Set B" registers could be invented though.


* Needs ACK from Thierry Reding to be merged via linux-gpio tree by Linus
Walleij. (fine with the general approach, requested changes which
should have been taken care of now)


Changes v4->v5:
* add Tested-by: Andrew Lunn <>, thanks
Patch 2/4 mvebu: xp: Add PWM properties to .dtsi files
* keep the old compatible stings, we don't have to drop them,
therefore keep them (suggested by Gregory CLEMENT)
* subject starts with ARM: dts: mvebu: (suggested by Gregory CLEMENT)
Patch 4/4 mvebu: wrt1900ac: Use pwm-fan rather than gpio-fan
* subject starts with ARM: dts: armada-xp: (suggested by Gregory CLEMENT)

Changes v3->v4:
Patch 1/4 gpio: mvebu: Add limited PWM support:
* braces for both branches in if statement if one needs it. (suggested
by Andrew Lunn)
* introduce compatible string marvell,armada-370-xp-gpio (suggest by
Rob Herring)
* fix mvebu_pwmreg_blink_on_duration -> mvebu_pwmreg_blink_off_duration
for period callculation in mvebu_pwm_get_state()
Patch 4/4 mvebu: wrt1900ac: Use pwm-fan rather than gpio-fan
* Drop flags from pwms for Mamba, as no longer used (suggested by
Andrew Lunn)
* Use again #pwm-cell = 2, the second cell is actually the period.

Changes v2->v3:
Patch 1/4 gpio: mvebu: Add limited PWM support:
* drop pin from mvebu_pwn, can be infered (suggested by Thierry Reding)
* rename pwm to mvpwm so pwm can be used for pwm_device as in the API,
avoids some mental gymnastic.
* drop id from struct mvebu_gpio_chip, select blink counter in
mvebu_pwm_probe for all lines instead. We do not care about the
unused ones. I think a clear improvement in readability.
Makes coming up with a good comment simple as well.
* Switch to new atomic PWM API (suggested by Thierry Reding)
* rename use mvebu_gpioreg_blink_select to
* mark *_suspend() / *_resume() as __maybe_unused (suggested by Linus
* document #pwm-cells = 1 (suggested by Thierry Reding)
Patch 2/4 mvebu: xp: Add PWM properties to .dtsi files
* add missing reg-names / #pwm-cell properties to
armada-xp-mv78260.dtsi gpio1 node
* set pwm-cells = 1 (suggested by Thierry Reding)
* always uppercase GPIO/PWM in prose (suggested by Thierry Reding)

Changes v1 -> v2:
Patch 1/4 gpio: mvebu: Add limited PWM support:
* use BIT macro (suggested by Linus Walleij)
* move id from struct mvebu_pwm to struct mvebu_gpio_chip, implement
blink select as if else and comment on the chip id for code clarity
(to accommodate Linus Walleijs request for a code clarification /
comment. If you can word it better I'm all ears.)
* Move function comment mvebu_pwm_probe into the function itself.


Andrew Lunn (4):

ARM: dts: mvebu: Add PWM properties to .dtsi files
ARM: mvebu: Enable SENSORS_PWM_FAN in defconfig
