[PATCH/RFC 0/4] dma: Add multiplexer call-back for channel allocation

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


Hi all

As recently [1] proposed, a DMA channel multiplexer can be user to 
flexibly allocate DMA channels without a use of a DMAC-specific filter 
function. This patch set presents a possible implementation. Of the 3 
patches in this series the first one is the actual proposal, the other two 
are an illustration, using the shdma dmaengine and the sh_mmcif mmc 
drivers on the sh7372 mackerel board.

This is an RFC, please, comment. One extension, that seems to make sense 
is an addition of a multiplexer-configure call-back to actually configure 
the routing. It isn't needed in the shdma case, so, I didn't want to add 
it without real users. Something along the lines of

	struct dma_chan *(*route_chan)(struct dma_chan *, struct device *,
				enum dma_transfer_direction, const char *);

perhaps?

Thanks
Guennadi
