Subject: [PATCH v6 0/9] Initial Marvell PXA1908 support


This series adds initial support for the Marvell PXA1908 SoC and
"samsung,coreprimevelte", a smartphone using the SoC.

USB works and the phone can boot a rootfs from an SD card, but there are
some warnings in the dmesg:

During SMP initialization:

On Samsung's PXA1908 phones, the bootloader does not start the ARM
system timer, and my temporary solution (which isn't present in this
series) was to put the code for starting the timer in the clock driver.
Would this hack be accepted upstream in the form of a platform or
clocksource driver such as drivers/clocksource/timer-mediatek-cpux.c?

A 3.14 based Marvell tree is available on GitHub
acorn-marvell/brillo_pxa_kernel, and a Samsung one on GitHub

Andreas Färber attempted to upstream support for this SoC in 2017:

Signed-off-by: Duje Mihanović <>

Changes in v6:
- Address maintainer comments:
  - Add "marvell,pxa1908-padconf" binding to pinctrl-single driver
- Drop GPIO patch as it's been pulled
- Update trailers
- Rebase on v6.6-rc5
- Link to v5:

Changes in v5:
- Address maintainer comments:
  - Move *_NR_CLKS to clock driver from dt binding file
- Allocate correct number of clocks for each block instead of blindly
  allocating 50 for each
- Link to v4:

Changes in v4:
- Address maintainer comments:
  - Relicense clock binding file to BSD-2
- Add pinctrl-names to SD card node
- Add vgic registers to GIC node
- Rebase on v6.5-rc5
- Link to v3:

Changes in v3:
- Address maintainer comments:
  - Drop GPIO dynamic allocation patch
  - Move clock register offsets into driver (instead of bindings file)
  - Add missing Tested-by trailer to u32_fract patch
  - Move SoC binding to arm/mrvl/mrvl.yaml

- Rebase on v6.5-rc4
- Link to v2:

Changes in v2:
- Remove earlycon patch as it's been merged into tty-next
- Address maintainer comments:
  - Clarify GPIO regressions on older PXA platforms
  - Add Fixes tag to commit disabling GPIO pinctrl calls for this SoC
  - Add missing includes to clock driver
  - Clock driver uses HZ_PER_MHZ, u32_fract and GENMASK

  - Change clock IDs to decimal
  - Fix underscores in dt node names
  - Move chosen node to top of board dts
  - Clean up documentation
  - Reorder commits
  - Drop pxa,rev-id
- Rename muic-i2c to i2c-muic
- Reword some commits
- Move framebuffer node to chosen
- Add aliases for mmc nodes
- Rebase on v6.5-rc3
- Link to v1:
