Subject: [RFC][PATCH 0/5] omap1: Amstrad Delta: add support for external
Date: Thursday 10 December 2009
Od: Janusz Krzysztofik <jkrzyszt at tis.icnet.pl>
Do: linux-omap at vger.kernel.org

This series of patches adds support for an external keyboard (called 
mailboard) connected to the Amstrad Delta (E3) videophone.

The series is based on a patch by Matt Callow, created against
linux-omap-2.6.19[1], initially submitted to the e3-hacking mailing list in
April 2006[2].

Since the keyboard serial clock line is connected to a GPIO line, it generates
interrupts every single bit received. In order to handle this correctly, the
code makes use of a FIQ hardware feature. Since all MPU GPIO generated
interrupts would be converted to FIQ, the handler must include support for all
supported MPU GPIO connected devices: the keyboard, a modem and a hook switch.

My modifications to the original patch include:
- split into several patches,
- refresh against a recent linux version,
- a lot of cleanups, mainly to get rid of checkpatch reported issues,
- add support for also handling interrupts generated by a GPIO line that the
  recently added hook switch hangs off.

Created and tested against linux-omap for-next,
commit 82f1d8f22f2c65e70206e40a6f17688bf64a892c dated 2009-12-02.

There is one minor issue that I have not dealt with yet: when built with
CONFIG_OMAP_RESET_CLOCKS=y, the keyboard driver stops working. I have no idea
how I could find which clock I should enable to get it working regardless of
boot loader used. Any suggestions?
