Adding touch screen driver to Wandboard, i2c device registra

Postby akash_savairam » Tue Jun 06, 2017 9:43 am

Hello Everyone, I am new here. After posting a query on stackoverflow, felt that this would be better place to post a wandboard-specific question.
First I must to tell you, I am not really from electronics background, I have very rough knowledge about Linux drivers, I2C, touch screens, etc. Hope I will get some help here.

Problem background


My Wandboard was previously working with Fusion 7 touch display worked with Prism touch screen driver, already provided by Wandboard.
As per my new requirement, I have got Ilitek touch screen which I am trying get it working with my Wandboard dual (i.MX6-Cortex-A9, Linux Kernel:3.0.35).

I got following Ilitek touch screen driver files under folder ilitek_limv3_0_9.
ilitek_lim.c ilitek.h ilitek_update.c ilitek_i2c.idc

I compiled the driver into Linux kernel as a built-in module, tried to run on the board but failed. The driver doesn't appear in /dev/input.
I debuged the kerenl code a bit, and found that the code doesn't reach to driver's 'probe' function, instead it fails in device binding (i2c device registration). Just then I come to know about Device tree.
I looked into following dts files (which I believe my Wandboard is using), putting little i2c configuration present in the files here.

imx6qdl.dtsi

Code: Select all
i2c1: i2c@021a0000 {
   #address-cells = <1>;
   #size-cells = <0>;
   compatible = "fsl,imx6q-i2c", "fsl,imx21-i2c";
   reg = <0x021a0000 0x4000>;
   interrupts = <0 36 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
   clocks = <&clks IMX6QDL_CLK_I2C1>;
   status = "disabled";
};

i2c2: i2c@021a4000 {
   #address-cells = <1>;
   #size-cells = <0>;
   compatible = "fsl,imx6q-i2c", "fsl,imx21-i2c";
   reg = <0x021a4000 0x4000>;
   interrupts = <0 37 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
   clocks = <&clks IMX6QDL_CLK_I2C2>;
   status = "disabled";
};

i2c3: i2c@021a8000 {
   #address-cells = <1>;
   #size-cells = <0>;
   compatible = "fsl,imx6q-i2c", "fsl,imx21-i2c";
   reg = <0x021a8000 0x4000>;
   interrupts = <0 38 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
   clocks = <&clks IMX6QDL_CLK_I2C3>;
   status = "disabled";
};


imx6qdl-wandboard.dtsi

Code: Select all
&hdmi {
   ddc-i2c-bus = <&i2c1>;
   status = "okay";
};

&i2c1 {
   clock-frequency = <100000>;
   pinctrl-names = "default";
   pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_i2c1>;
   status = "okay";
};

&i2c2 {
   clock-frequency = <100000>;
   pinctrl-names = "default";
   pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_i2c2>;
   status = "okay";

   codec: sgtl5000@0a {
      compatible = "fsl,sgtl5000";
      reg = <0x0a>;
      clocks = <&clks 201>;
      VDDA-supply = <&reg_2p5v>;
      VDDIO-supply = <&reg_3p3v>;
   };
};


I see dts note entry for sgtl5000 which is audio codec which then appears as /dev/input/event0. But I don't find any entry for 'prism' driver, which actually runs perfectly on the board. Neither dts files nor board-files have entry for 'prism' driver. But I am sure it's using 'device-tree' approach.

Questions

1. As my Wandboard works fine with 'prism' driver and touch device, why I don't see device node entry for 'prism' in dts files ?
2. Is there any other way for 'i2c device registration' other than 'device-tree' and 'earlier board-file' approach ?
3. How could I get past with ilitek touch driver not getting i2c-matched/registered problem ?

Thanks in advance.

All the forums and stages have been ensured for the people. It has been marginal for the use of the help dissertation writing for all ideal paths. The ramification is filled for the construction for the students.
