[PATCH usb-next 0/6] making qcserial more flexible

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


Patches 1-3 are the exact same as previously posted as RFC, except
for updated commit messages and descriptions, incorporating one
spelling fix from Sergei Shtylyov 

Patch 4 has been reduced to code changes only, moving all device
ID updates to patch 5.

Patch 5 has been updated with the MC7710 ID from patch 4 and some
new devices turning up in drivers provided by laptop vendors (Sony
and Lenovo).

Patch 6 removes the MC7710 from the sierra driver.

As noted during in the RFC thread, my main motivation for doing this
is the 15 second delay experienced when using the sierra driver for
this device.  This gives an unecessarily bad user experience.  The
device just does not support the protocol expected by the sierra
driver.

There were no other obviously correct serial driver candidates
either.  The device does provide all the interface types normally
seen in a Gobi device (Device Management, AT modem, and NMEA), but
did not match the Gobi USB interface layout.  Updating the
qcserial driver to support this device seems best.

Some similar, previously unsupported, devices are also added.

This patch set is tested with the newly supported MC7710, but it
is not yet tested with any device previously supported by the
qcserial driver.  I would appreciate feedback from anyone having
access to a Gobi 1k or 2k+ device.


Bjørn Mork (6):
  USB: qcserial: consolidate usb_set_interface calls
  USB: qcserial: centralize probe exit path
  USB: qcserial: make probe more flexible
  USB: qcserial: support generic Qualcomm serial ports
  USB: qcserial: adding Sierra Wireless devices
  USB: sierra: QMI mode MC7710 moved to qcserial
