2008-02-18 11:27:46     using bug fix #3427 without using live sources

murti iki (GERMANY)

Message: 51208    Hello,

 

I have a problem with the SPI CS line going high between consequent transfers in the same message. I have found out this bug report, which exaclty tells my problem. SInce the fix date is 2008-01-11, I guess I have to use the live source.

 

http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/project/uclinux-dist/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=3427&tracker_id=141

 

Yet, I was wondering if there is a way to get this fix without using SVN. I suppose the only changed files would be spi_bfin5xx.c

so if I change the 2007 RC3 release bfin5xx.c file according to the one in the SVN, would it be okey?

 

Or is it the case that the changes occur in more than one file and it's not possible to change it without getting it from the SVN.

 

Thanks a lot for your help

Gruß

Message: 51219    Then does this mean that the fix to this bug consists of more than just some modifications to the spi_bf5xx.c file?

Message: 51232    it means you can either use the 2008R1 branch, or you can try applying the fixes yourself

Message: 51275    Hello Mike,

 

I have tried to go through the spi_bfin5xx.c I have applied a couple of changes to the old file according to the new bfin5xx.c

Right now, chip select line stays active in between transfers however between different messages it toggles.

 

Before delving further into the code, I wanted to ask if in the current release the chip select stays low between messages?

I don't want to try finding a change that doesn't exit

 

thanks alot

Message: 51286    2008R1/trunk is supposed to respect the SPI configure options ... if they dont, it's a bug and Bryan needs to fix them

Message: 51290    Well since I don't have the 2008R1/trunk available, I can't confirm that but I would be very happy if somebody can confirm me this.
