[PATCH] gpio: Add simple poweroff-gpio driver

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Given appropriate devicetree bindings, this driver registers a
pm_power_off function to set a GPIO line high/low and power down
your board.

Here's an attempt at doing this. All works fine, I've not submitted a
patch to use it since GPIO patches for kirkwood aren't finalised, but
you can see it being used here:-

https://github.com/lentinj/linux.git v3.4-rc4-clk-next-orion-dnskw-gpio

The main issue is where to put it. I'm not convinced that drivers/gpio
is an appropriate home, however drivers/power and drivers/hwmon (where
drivers with similar purpose live) contain frameworks this is not part
of. drivers/mfd has some modules that can power off, but this is hardly
multifunction :) Could also give in and use drivers/misc.

Feedback appreciated.

+GPIO line that should be set high/low to power off a device
+
+Required properties:
+- compatible : should be "gpio-poweroff".
+- gpios : The GPIO to set high/low, see "gpios property" in
+  Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpio/gpio.txt. If the pin should be
+  low to power down the board set it to "Active Low", otherwise set
+  gpio to "Active High".
+
+Examples:
+
+gpio-poweroff {
+	compatible = "gpio-poweroff";
+	gpios = <&gpio 4 0>; /* GPIO 4 Active High */
+};
