Series Netronix embedded controller driver for Kobo and Tolino ebook readers | expand


Jonathan Neuschäfer Dec. 8, 2020, 1:09 a.m. UTC
This patchset adds basic support for the embedded controller found on
older ebook reader boards designed by/with the ODM Netronix Inc.[1] and
sold by Kobo or Tolino, for example the Kobo Aura and the Tolino Shine.
These drivers are based on information contained in the vendor kernel
sources, but in order to all information in a single place, I documented
the register interface of the EC on GitHub[2].

- Additional cleanups in the PWM driver
- Added Lee Jones' ACK to the MFD driver patch

- https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20201201011513.1627028-1-j.neuschaefer@gmx.net/
- Avoid truncation of PWM period and duty cycle to 32 bits
- A few cleanups and additional comments in the PWM driver
- Use regmap_multi_reg_write

- https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20201122222739.1455132-1-j.neuschaefer@gmx.net/
- Spell out ODM (original design manufacturer)
- Solve corner cases in the RTC driver
- Clean up use of log levels vs. error codes
- Add more comments explaining some peculiarities
- Add missing MODULE_ALIAS lines
- Various other cleanups

- https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200924192455.2484005-1-j.neuschaefer@gmx.net/
- A few code cleanups
- A few devicetree related cleanups
- PWM and RTC functionality were moved from subnodes in the devicetree to
  the main node. This also means that the subdrivers no longer need DT
  compatible strings, but are instead loaded via the mfd_cell mechanism.
- The drivers are now published under GPLv2-or-later rather than GPLv2-only.

- Moved txt DT bindings to patch descriptions and removed patch 1/10
  "DT bindings in plain text format"
- New patch 7/10 "rtc: Introduce RTC_TIMESTAMP_END_2255"
- Rebased on 5.9-rc3
- Various other changes which are documented in each patch
