Commit Message

Georgi Djakov June 12, 2017, 2:13 p.m.
This patch introduce a new API to get the requirement and configure the
interconnect buses across the entire chipset to fit with the current demand.

The API is using a consumer/provider-based model, where the providers are
the interconnect controllers and the consumers could be various drivers.
The consumers request interconnect resources (path) to an endpoint and set
the desired constraints on this data flow path. The provider(s) receive
requests from consumers and aggregate these requests for all master-slave
pairs on that path. Then the providers configure each participating in the
topology node according to the requested data flow path, physical links and
constraints. The topology could be complicated and multi-tiered and is SoC
specific.

.rst for new Documenation files please, and hook it up to the larger
documentation build process at the same time.

And why are these RFC patches?  Don't you feel they are ready to be
reviewed?  I know I ignore RFC patches for the most part as obviously
the author does not think they are ready :)

thanks,

greg k-h

+GENERIC SYSTEM INTERCONNECT CONTROLLER SUBSYSTEM
+===============================================
+
+1. Introduction
+---------------
+This framework is designed to provide a standard kernel interface to control
+the settings of the interconnects on a SoC. These settings can be throughput,
+latency and priority between multiple interconnected devices. This can be
+controlled dynamically in order to save power or provide maximum performance.
+
+The interconnect controller is a hardware with configurable parameters, which
+can be set on a data path according to the requests received from various
+drivers. An example of interconnect controllers are the interconnects between
+various components on chipsets. There can be multiple interconnects on a SoC
+that can be multi-tiered.
+
+Below is a simplified diagram of a real-world SoC topology. The interconnect
+providers are the memory front end and the NoCs.

+2. Interconnect providers
+------------------------
+Interconnect provider is an entity that implements methods to initialize and
+configure a interconnect controller hardware.
+
+An interconnect controller should register with the interconnect provider core
+with interconnect_add_provider().
+
+A previously registered interconnect provider is unregistered with
+interconnect_del_provider().
+
+3. Interconnect consumers
+------------------------
+Interconnect consumers are the entities which make use of the data paths exposed
+by the providers. The consumers send requests to providers requesting various
+throughput, latency and priority. Usually the consumers are device drivers, that
+send request based on their needs.
+
+The interconnect framework consumer API functions are documented in
+include/linux/interconnect-consumer.h
