Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.8 36/72] ARM: dts: exynos: Disable frequency scaling for FSYS bus on Odroid XU3 family

From: Marek Szyprowski <>

[ Upstream commit 9ff416cf45a08f28167b75045222c762a0347930 ]

Commit 1019fe2c7280 ("ARM: dts: exynos: Adjust bus related OPPs to the
values correct for Exynos5422 Odroids") changed the parameters of the
OPPs for the FSYS bus. Besides the frequency adjustments, it also removed
the 'shared-opp' property from the OPP table used for FSYS_APB and FSYS

This revealed that in fact the FSYS bus frequency scaling never worked.
When one OPP table is marked as 'opp-shared', only the first bus which
selects the OPP sets the rate of its clock. Then OPP core assumes that
the other busses have been changed to that OPP and no change to their
clock rates are needed. Thus when FSYS_APB bus, which was registered
first, set the rate for its clock, the OPP core did not change the FSYS
bus clock later.

The mentioned commit removed that behavior, what introduced a regression
on some Odroid XU3 boards. Frequency scaling of the FSYS bus causes
instability of the USB host operation, what can be observed as network
hangs. To restore old behavior, simply disable frequency scaling for the
FSYS bus.
