Subject: [PATCH] platform/chrome: cros_ec_lpc: Choose Microchip EC at runtime

On many boards, communication between the kernel and the Embedded
Controller happens over an LPC bus. In these cases, the kernel config
CONFIG_CROS_EC_LPC is enabled. Some of these LPC boards contain a
Microchip Embedded Controller (MEC) that is different from the regular
EC. On these devices, the same LPC bus is used, but the protocol is
a little different. In these cases, the CONFIG_CROS_EC_LPC_MEC kernel
config is enabled. Currently, the kernel decides at compile-time whether
or not to use the MEC variant, and, when that kernel option is selected
it breaks the other boards. We would like a kind of runtime detection to
avoid this.

This patch adds that detection mechanism by probing the protocol at
runtime, first we assume that a MEC variant is connected, and if the
protocol fails it fallbacks to the regular EC. This adds a bit of
overload because we try to read twice on those LPC boards that doesn't
contain a MEC variant, but is a better solution than having to select the
EC variant at compile-time.

While here also fix the alignment in Kconfig file for this config option
replacing the spaces by tabs.

Hi,

This is the first attempt to solve the issue to be able to select at
runtime the CrOS MEC variant. My first thought was check for a device ID,
the MEC1322 has a register that contains the device ID, however I am not
sure if we can read that register from the host without modifying the
firmware. Also, I am not sure if the MEC1322 is the only device used
that supports that LPC protocol variant, so I ended with a more easy
solution, check if the protocol fails or not. Some background on this
issue can be found [1] and [2]

The patch has been tested on:
 - Acer Chromebook R11 (Cyan - MEC variant)
 - Pixel Chromebook 2015 (Samus - non-MEC variant)
 - Dell Chromebook 11 (Wolf - non-MEC variant)
 - Toshiba Chromebook (Leon - non-MEC variant)

Nick, could you test the patch for Wilco?

Best regards,
 Enric
