Re: Problem with Multiblock Write in PXA270 MMC Driver

Forcing single block write _did_ allow all SD cards under test to work with the PXA270 in the Gumstix Verdex Pro. My client is going to use it that way, but it does not seem like a good general solution. I don't know enough of the big picture in the kernel to craft a general solution.
I tried adding logic that would force single-block only after one write error occurred, but it did not solve the problem. The failing SD cards would not recover after the first error.

In our sample, the failing cards were all Sandisk 2GB marked "MADE IN CHINA". Sandisk verified that they were genuine (i.e. not counterfeit). Host platform was Gumstix Verdex Pro. Individual units vary in their failures, so it is likely a signal issue on the boards; it could also likely be an opportunity to make the PXA drivers more robust. Full details are at: http://old.nabble.com/Root-Cause%3A-Intermittent-SD-Card-Failures-on-Verdex-Pro-to29985059.htmlI didn't get the point, so turning multiblock into singleblock solved the issue of writing on those SD cards or there is still no verified solution?Good luck, MMC Driver Maintainers. -- Larry Martin www.GlueLogix.com _______________________________________________ linux-arm mailing list linux-arm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.infradead.org/mailman/listinfo/linux-arm
