From: Martin Sperl <kernel at martin.sperl.org>
Add a thermal driver for the TSENSE device of the bcm2835/6/7 SOC.
If the firmware enables the HW, then the configuration is not touched.
In case the firmware has not enabled the device, then we try to set
it up correctly (which unfortunately can not get tested).
It exposes temperature and a critical trip point
(using a hardcoded default of 80C or the temperature configured
in the control register by the firmware, which reads as
The calibrations are (potentially) different for bcm2835, bcm2836
and bcm2837 and can get selected by the compatible property
in the device tree.
The driver also exposes the registers via debugfs.
Possible future enhancements:
* the device has the ability to trigger interrupts on reaching
the programmed critical temperature.
I have no knowledge which interrupt could be responsible
for this on the ARM side, so if we get to know which irq
it is we can implement that.
Instead the driver right now implements polling in 1 second intervals
* the device can also reset the HW after the trip point
has been reached (also with some delay, so that corrective
actions can get taken) - this is currently not enabled by the
firmware, but could.
* we could define more trip points for THERMAL_TRIP_HOT
* make the trip point limits modifiable (ops.set_trip_temp)
No support for 32-bit arm bcm2837, as there is no
arch/arm/boot/dts/bcm2836.dtsi upstream as of now.
64-bit arm support is not tested
V1 -> V2: renamed dt-binding documentation file
added specific settings depending on compatible
added trip point based on register
setting up ctrl-register if HW is not enabled by firmware
as per recommendation of Eric (untested)
check that clock frequency is in range
(1.9 - 5MHz - as per comment in clk-bcm2835.c)
added driver to multi_v7_defconfig
V2 -> V3: made a module in multi_v7_defconfig
fixed typo in dt-binding document
V3 -> V4: moved driver back to thermal (not using bcm sub-directory)
set polling interval to 1second (was 0ms, so interrupt driven)
V4 -> V5: use correct compatiblity for different soc versions in dt
support ARM64 for bcm2837 in devicetree and defconfig
V5 -> V6: incorporated changes recommended by Stefan Wahren
V6 -> V7: removed depends on ARCH_BCM2836 || ARCH_BCM2837 in Kconfig
V7 -> V8: rebased
