If DBAu1100 doesn't allow to control slot power, then I don't think pretending it does is a good thing. Shouldn't these #ifdef's be in au1xmmc_set_ios() instead (the function is void anyway but that would allow us to save on the code size a bit more)?

Mmm. I proposed that solution but I don't know exaclty how several
DB1x00 boards work. I just protect the variable "bcsr" which is not
defined for my board.

That wasn't obvious from the patch that this is intended for some specific board and BCSRs (board control/status registers) seem to exist on all Alchemy development boards.

static inline int au1xmmc_card_inserted(struct au1xmmc_host *host)
-       return (bcsr->sig_status & au1xmmc_card_table[host->id].bcsrstatus)
-               ? 1 : 0;
+       u32 val, data = 1;
+       val = au1xmmc_card_table[host->id].status;
+#if defined(CONFIG_MIPS_DB1200)
+       data = bcsr->sig_status & val;
+       return !!data;

Hrm, are you sure there's no way to sense that the card is *really* inserted or not?

Again as above. For my specific board I use:

   #if defined(CONFIG_MIPS_DB1200)
       data = bcsr->sig_status & val;
   #elif defined(CONFIG_MIPS_MYBOARD)
       specific code...

Maybe we should modify my solution including other DB1x00 boards
ifdef. However, the important thing is to protect againt variable
"bcsr" if a specific board doesn't support it.

If you're not introducing the support for the new board, introducing those #ifdef's doesn't make much sense. Overall, the support for the boards other than Pb/DbAu1200 seems broken in that driver -- see below why...

static inline int au1xmmc_card_readonly(struct au1xmmc_host *host)
-       return (bcsr->status & au1xmmc_card_table[host->id].wpstatus)
-               ? 1 : 0;
+       u32 val, data = 0;
+       val = au1xmmc_card_table[host->id].wpstatus;
+#if defined(CONFIG_MIPS_DB1200)
+       data = bcsr->status & val;
+       return !!data;


The same as above. :)

Indeed, some modifications are needed for the other Alchemy boards -- there's some discrepancy with the "board" register in particular, for the boards older than Pb/DBAu1200 it was called "specific" having much the same format and purpose. This is not so however with "sig_status" and "status" registers used to sense card's presence and for write protecting. Judging on <asm/mach-db1x00/db1x00.h>, "specific" reg. should be used instead. There are MMC macros in that file BTW for detecting the cards and applying power to them.


WBR, Sergei
