Subject: [RFC PATCH nand-next 0/2] meson-nand: support for older SoCs

Hi Liang,

I am trying to add support for older SoCs to the meson-nand driver.
Back when the driver was in development I used an early revision (of
your driver) and did some modifications to make it work on older SoCs.

Now that the driver is upstream I wanted to give it another try and
make a real patch out of it. Unfortunately it's not working anymore.

As far as I know the NFC IP block revision on GXL is similar (or even
the same?) as on all older SoCs. As far as I can tell only the clock
setup is different on the older SoCs (which have a dedicated NAND
- we don't need the "amlogic,mmc-syscon" property on the older SoCs
  because we don't need to setup any muxing (common clock framework
  will do everything for us)
- "rx" and "tx" clocks don't exist
- I could not find any other differences between Meson8, Meson8b,
  Meson8m2, GXBB and GXL

In this series I'm sending two patches which add support for the older

Unfortunately these patches are currently not working for me (hence the
"RFC" prefix). I get a (strange) crash which is triggered by the
kzalloc() in meson_nfc_read_buf() - see below for more details.

Can you please help me on this one? I'd like to know whether:
- the meson-nand driver works for you on GXL or AXG on linux-next?
  (I was running these patches on top of next-20190301 on my M8S
  board which uses a 32-bit Meson8m2 SoC. I don't have any board using
  a GXL SoC which also has NAND)
- you see any issue with my patches? (maybe I missed more differences
  between GXL and the older SoCs)
