2009-02-26 16:48:25 Question on using bfin_simple_timer
andy (UNITED STATES)
Am using uclinux2006. Am trying to write a test code that uses the bfin_simple_timer driver. I have compiled the driver into the kernel. Upon dmesg it shows:
timer initialize: module loaded, which is printk'd in the timer driver code.
Also upon ls in /proc it shows bfin_simple_timer. Upon cat of the timer, it shows 7 timers with isr count being zero.
I understand that the simple timer driver should load device files such as timer0, timer1 and so on. But Upon ls in /dev I do not see any such files.
Why aren't the device files being loaded? What am I doing/understanding wrong here?

You might also want to update your kernel. 2006 is getting pretty old, and there have been a lot of updates & bug fixes since then.
