2010-01-18 05:45:24     Interrupt 'multiplexing' in uClinux?


Message: 84712   


I have a working design based on a BF532/533 where I use PPI0:11 to drive 12-bit data to an LCD and I'm using PPI12:15 (PF7:4) as interrupt inputs.  I'd like to switch to 15-bit pixels and use only PPI15/PF4 as my interrupt input, while still supporting the same number of interrupt-generating devices.  I have an external logic device that I can use to implement a simple interrupt controller/multiplexer (I have some memory-mapped registers in this device that I can use to figure out which device raised the interrupt, etc.).  I've read through:




but it's going to take some time to digest.  I did notice something in there about IRQF_SHARED, which sounds promising, but I'm not sure it's applicable to what I want to do.


Has something like this been done already?  If not, could someone give me some pointers on where to look/which file(s) I'll have to patch to make this work?

You need to append new logic IRQ numbers to arch/blackfin/mach-bf533/include/mach/irq.h, register your own irq_chip and demux the IRQ number in interupt handler do_irq().




Please refer to arch/blackfin/mach-common/ints-priority.c
