gpio_to_irq(25) = -6

edited January 27 in UP Xtreme Linux

While following this thread to add a MCP2515 (CAN driver on SPI bus) on an Up Xtreme, the driver proposed by @nukular works to register the SPI device but the gpio_to_irq() always returns -6 so the SPI driver is not happy with it.

We have tried several GPIO numbers, from 1 to 26 but all are returning -6.

This same driver was working on an UpBoard.

We are currently running the 5.0 kernel from Up ppa has explained in the wiki.

Did anyone have success on using irq on pins from the 40-pin Raspberry Pi style connector?

I have tried to follow the kernel source code but I am not enough familiar with it so if anyone could point me to the right files, it would be nice too.

Thank you.

    I have checked all the GPIO pins available on the 40 pin connector with this small module and is was not possible to get any IRQ while it works on a classic UpBoard.

    Module:

    #include <linux/init.h>
    #include <linux/module.h>
    #include <linux/interrupt.h>
    #include <linux/gpio.h>
    
    static int __init list_irq_init(void)
    {
        int ret;
        int i;
    
        printk("list_irq: init\n");
    
        for(i = 0 ; i <= 27; i++)
        {
            printk("list_irq: Checking GPIO %d\n", i);
    
            ret = gpio_request(i, "list_irq");
            if(ret){
                gpio_free(i);
                continue;
            }
    
            gpio_direction_input(i);
    
            ret = gpio_to_irq(i);
            if(ret < 0){
                printk("list_irq: could not get irq of gpio %d\n", i);
                gpio_free(i);
                continue;
            }
    
            printk("list_irq: irq for pin %d is %d\n", i, ret);
            gpio_free(i);
        }
    
        return 0;
    }
    
    static void __exit list_irq_exit(void)
    {
        printk("list irq: exit\n");
    }
    
    module_init(list_irq_init);
    module_exit(list_irq_exit);

    I have read the several up specific files in the kernel:

    • drivers/platform/x86/up_board.c
    • drivers/platform/x86/up_board_pinctrl.c
    • drivers/mfd/upboard-fpga.c
    • drivers/pinctrl/pinctrl-upboard.c
    • include/linux/mfd/upboard-fpga.h

    and did not found any major changes between UpBoard (original) and the Up Xtreme so I could not find any differences about the interrupts. So maybe there is something on the Bios or FPGA sides?

    I use kernel from Up repo: Linux up 5.0.0-1-generic #2~upboard4-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jul 25 13:35:27 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    And the BIOS seems to be the latest version: DMI: AAEON UP-WHL01/UP-WHL01, BIOS UPW1AM14 10/17/2019.

    @DCleri or @Dan O'Donovan do you have any idea about that?

    Thanks.

    I have just seem in the wiki that the interrupts are not supported on Raspberry Pi pins and we should use linux numbering scheme.

    Currently interrupts are only supported using the linux gpio numbering scheme (e.g. use 432 gpio umber instead of Rpi gpio number 27).

    Source: https://wiki.up-community.org/Pinout_Xtreme#Interrupts

    So my question now is, how to get this number from the pinout on the wiki?

    Hi @rreignier

    That is correct, we will update that table as soon as possible and include the necessary information (Linux Numbering for UP Xtreme Pins).

  • rreignierrreignier New Member Posts: 52 ✭✭

    Hi @DCleri

    Thanks a lot.

    For my experiments, and for others, the Linux gpio number for that pin 25 is 266. But I did not find a method to deduce it for every pins. So I am interested if anyone has a better solution.

    Hi @rreignier
    Until the wiki here is updated, you can find the Linux GPIO numbers for UP Xtreme here (see the column titled "Sysfs GPIO"): https://github.com/eclipse/mraa/blob/master/docs/up_xtreme.md#pin-mapping

  • rreignierrreignier New Member Posts: 52 ✭✭

    Hi @Dan O'Donovan

    Thanks a lot for the pointer, this table is quite convenient and should really be on the wiki.

    For my education, could you explain to figure out these numbers with kernel source code or sysfs information?
