SubjectRe: [PATCH] arm64: dts: rockchip: decrease rising edge time of UART2
From
Date
Hello Tony, Robin,

I continue to investigate UART TX rising time problem. Recently, I found
one of cause of this problem.

In my environment, this problem occurred on linux-next only. U-Boot does
not face it. So I compared settings between U-Boot and linux-next. After
I found GRF_IO_VSEL (address 0xff77e640) register is differ.


Would you tell me what value is stored into this register?


My RockPro64, initially 0x00000000 is set but 0x00000003 is set during
linux boot. UART TX rising time becomes fine if set both bit 1 and bit 3
or clear both bits.


Best Regards,
