Subject: [PATCH 3/3] ARM: at91: xload-mmc: add prominent note about PBL MMC limitation
Date: Wed,  2 Jun 2021 12:25:24 +0200
Message-ID: <20210602102524.20034-3-a.fatoum@pengutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210602102524.20034-1-a.fatoum@pengutronix.de>

The PBL driver has an assumption about only being used with
high capacity cards. When using a default capacity card, the sama5d3
MCI controller hang when doing unaligned accesses.

This heuristic could add some support default capacity card support
without risking unaligned accesses:

  at91_mci_set_highcapacity(false);

  sector0 = read_sector(0);
  if (!is_mbr(sector0, &fatsect)
         abort();

  fatsector1 = read_sector(fatsect);
  at91_mci_set_highcapacity(false);

  if (is_fat(fatsect))
	goto default_cap;
  else
	goto high_cap;

This, of course, fails if fatsect * 512 on a high capacity card
happens to have a FAT signature. As it's unclear whether supporting
<= 2 GiB is worth the effort, hardcode it in xload-mmc.c and add
a note about the limitation to conserve future debugging effort.
