Subject: [PATCH v4 00/17] clk: at91: updates for power management and dvfs


This series addresses the clock power management for SAMA7G5 and also
updates the master clock driver and sam9x60-pll driver to accommodate
the requests at [1] and avoid overclocking of CPU and MCK0 domains while
changing the frequency via DVFS.

The power management part is implemented by adding
save_context()/restore_context() on each clock driver (patch 1/17). Since
the PM part is necessary only for backup mode (supported on SAMA5D2 and
SAMA7G5) the pmc.c has been adapted to call the
save_context()/restore_context() only on switches to/from backup mode
(patch 2/17).

Patch 3/17 adds the securam clock on SAMA7G5. This is necessary for
backup mode of SAMA7G5.

Patch 4/17 adapt SAMA7G5 MCK1..4 driver to use the defines at
include/linux/clk/at91_pmc.h introduced in commit ec03f18cc222
("clk: at91: add register definition for sama7g5's master clock").

Patch 5/17 improves a bit readabiblity in some places of master clock

Patch 6/17 enable the suspend/resume for clocks also for SAMA7G5.

Patches 7-10/17 adds fixes in master clock driver and sam9x60-pll driver.

Patches 11-12/17 address DVFS by adding notifiers for master clock driver
and sam9x60-pll driver to avoid overclocking for CPU domain and MCK0

Patch 13/17 removes the master clock prescaler from Linux clock tree
as it has been discovered a hardware bug on it and it may not lock
on some scenario although its output clock is stable.

Patch 14/17 decreases the low limit of MCK0 as it can go even to 32KHz.

Patch 15/17 uses clk_core_get_rate_recalc() in clk_rate_get().

Patches 16-17/17 adds minor cleanups on clk.c


I added everything in one series and didn't send at 1st the non-DVFS
patches (as you suggested in [2]) as at the time of proposal patch 4/17
here depended on commit ec03f18cc222 ("clk: at91: add register definition
for sama7g5's master clock") which wasn't present on your tree at that

Thank you,
Claudiu Beznea


Changes in v4:
- removed opp dependencies along with get_cpu_device() in patch 11/17 as
  those functionalities are not available at the initialization time for
  clocks instantiated with CLK_OF_DECLARE

Changes in v3:
- minor fixes in patch 1/7 (e.g. use regmap_read() + checks + update +
  regmap_write() sequence instead of regmap_read() + checks +
- patch 4/17 has been updated after commit ec03f18cc222
  ("clk: at91: add register definition for sama7g5's master clock")
- patch 6-10/17, 14-17/17 are newly introduced
- notifier for sam9x60 div pll was introduced (patch 11/17) and
  notifier logic for master clock div has been changed (patch 12/17)
  to use safe divider on PRE_RATE_CHANGE events and update clock to highest
  possible rate on POST_RATE_CHANGE events
- master clock prescaler has been removed from Linux clock tree for

Changes in v2:
- addressed code review comments
- collected tags
