SubjectRE: [PATCH] gpiolib: fix incorrect IRQ requesting of an active-low lineevent
Date
Hi Bartosz,

For example, there is a button which drives level to be low when it is pushed, and drivers level to be high when it is released.
We want to catch the event when the button is pushed.

In user space we configure a line event with the following code:

req.handleflags = GPIOHANDLE_REQUEST_INPUT;
req.eventflags = GPIOEVENT_REQUEST_FALLING_EDGE;

and we hope to get "falling" events by reading the device node:

while (1) {
read(fd, &dat,sizeof(dat));
if (dat.id == 0) {
printf("button pushed\n");
}
}

Run the same logic on another board which the polarity of the button is inverted. The button drives level to be high when it is pushed.
For the inverted level case, we have to add flag GPIOHANDLE_REQUEST_ACTIVE_LOW:

req.handleflags = GPIOHANDLE_REQUEST_INPUT | GPIOHANDLE_REQUEST_ACTIVE_LOW;
req.eventflags = GPIOEVENT_REQUEST_FALLING_EDGE;

At the result, there are no any events been caught when the button is pushed.
By the way, button releasing will emit a "falling" event.


Sincerely,

Michael Wu

Is this something that causes a bug in user-space? Any scenario to reproduce it?
