Subject: [PATCH 3.13 017/259] ARM: OMAP2+: Fix parser-bug in platform muxing code -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "David R. Piegdon" <>

commit c021f241f4fab2bb4fc4120a38a828a03dd3f970 upstream.

Fix a parser-bug in the omap2 muxing code where muxtable-entries will be
wrongly selected if the requested muxname is a *prefix* of their
m0-entry and they have a matching mN-entry. Fix by additionally checking
that the length of the m0_entry is equal.

For example muxing of "dss_data2.dss_data2" on omap32xx will fail
because the prefix "dss_data2" will match the mux-entries "dss_data2" as
well as "dss_data20", with the suffix "dss_data2" matching m0 (for
dss_data2) and m4 (for dss_data20). Thus both are recognized as signal
path candidates:

Relevant muxentries from mux34xx.c:
        _OMAP3_MUXENTRY(DSS_DATA20, 90,
                "dss_data20", NULL, "mcspi3_somi", "dss_data2",
                "gpio_90", NULL, NULL, "safe_mode"),
        _OMAP3_MUXENTRY(DSS_DATA2, 72,
                "dss_data2", NULL, NULL, NULL,
                "gpio_72", NULL, NULL, "safe_mode"),

This will result in a failure to mux the pin at all:

 _omap_mux_get_by_name: Multiple signal paths (2) for dss_data2.dss_data2

Patch should apply to linus' latest master down to rather old linux-2.6
