Re: [PATCH] pm8001: support HDA (flashless) mode

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

You are right ... however this code is 'never reached' since mpi_uninit_check() generally fails before this in the chip_in_hda_mode set of tests.

I instrumented up, on our HDA mode chip, we are seeing a value of ZERO in MAIN_HDA_FLAGS_OFFSET ... Ahh, the world of initializing hardware that is in an indeterminate (code not running) state ...
