There is also Freescale's public git repository for the i.MX31/i.MX27/MXC available at http://opensource.freescale.com/git?p=linux-2.6-mx.git;a=summary I think the main purpose of the above repository is to mainline i.mx31 core support. I can't see any support for the litekit in there at the moment, however I think this will be coming. Quinn/Hasan/Lennert/Anyone else, please correct me if I am wrong about this.
Yes, especially the 'devel' branch. There are other branches with the released BSP patch stacks.
I have a few questions also: 1) Is it intended that this repository will contain i.MX31 LITKIT support?
2) If so, is someone actively working on this? 3) If not, would it be worthwhile for me to try and get this tree booting on a LITEKIT? Perhaps after Quinn's updated (5/4/2007) MXC/i.MX31ADS patch has been re-submitted?
I'm aware of work in progress for a LITEKIT patch set that would apply on top of the 'bsp-imx31ads-rel3' branch, which is based on 18.104.22.168. I'd like to see this patch set ported to work on top of the 'devel' branch as well. I'd also like to see a basic LITEKIT patch that could stack on top of the latest 'stackXXXX' branch (currently 'stack20070418') in the linux-2.6-mx git tree. Then it could be reviewed and hopefully merged soon. On the public linux-2.6-mx git tree, the 'devel' branch has everything but on the whole is still fairly far from mainline. 'devel' started from the rel3 BSP code base, and will evolve toward mainline as pieces of it are carved out and reviewed in manageable and logical chunks. I will be applying some internal updates and fixes from the internal teams. The latest 'stackXXXX' branch is what I'm currently trying to merge upstream. Some other i.MX31/27 tasks that could use community help: - Prepare and submit drivers/serial/mxc_uart.*, and required patch to include/linux/serial_core.h - Prepare and submit patch to drivers/net/fec.* - Prepare and submit patch to drivers/net/cs89x0.* - Bring 'devel' branch up to 2.6.21-rc7 or later - Prepare gpio driver for review (including new API gasket?) - Prepare i2c driver for review - Prepare clk driver from 'devel' branch for review (after I've applied some recent updates and fixes) - Submit patch against drivers/mtd/redboot.c - Convert drivers/ide/arm/mxc_ide.* to libata - Other tasks If any of you would like to take on one or more of these tasks, please let me know. I'll keep track of who's doing what.
