- Subject: [PATCH RFC 0/1] QCOM: GPIO IRQ wakeup using PDC irqchip
This is a second attempt at enabling wakeup using GPIO IRQs. On the QCOM
SDM845i SoC, even when the TLMM gpiochip is powered off the the PDC always-on
interrupt controller can sense the GPIO interrupt as a signal, wakeup the
interrupt and replay the interrupt at the GIC.
Since, the wakeup interrupt is replayed at the GIC and not at the TLMM, it
would have to be considered as a separate interrupt line and not in hierarchy
with the GPIO interrupt line which is chained to the GIC, using a single
The earlier approach  was based on configuring a PDC interrupt whenever a
GPIO was requested as an IRQ and the PDC irq line was kept disabled. During
suspend and resume, the TLMM line was disabled and the PDC line was enabled.
While this works for suspend/resume, it becomes an additional complexity to
handle when entering a system low power mode where the TLMM could be powered
off when the CPUs are idle.
The approach here is to use PDC interrupt at all times (while keeping the GPIO
irq disabled). The PDC interrupt handler invokes the action handler of the GPIO
IRQ instead. This allows us to avoid interrupt hand-offs while entering idle
states and keeps things very simple. The wake_irq_gpio_handler() is the crux of
this new revision.
This submission does not include the DT bindings and associated documentation.
Once the core design is resolved I will send a complete set with dependencies
for this SoC. Please let me know if this approach would work or do you see any
issues that I may have missed.
