I have a query about the following:
pin_func = 0;
/* not valid for 1550 */
// 2nd USB port is USB device
pin_func = au_readl(SYS_PINFUNC) & (u32)(~0x8000);
Now SYS_PINFUNC is defined as 0xB190002C
the (u32)(~0x8000) means 0xB190002C & 0xFFFF1FFF right?
Then the original value of SYS_PINFUNC remains unchanged..so what is the
purpose of the above code?
