Discussion:
DT binding for staging vchiq

Hi Sergey,
Hello everyone,
I am trying to use RPi3 VC4 gpu with Qt5 quick/qml. When I run my
application Qt5 is always complaining about missing vchiq device in the
system. I know there is vchiq driver available in staging.
1) What is the current status of the driver ? Is it working at all?
From my point of view it's still experimental. It's mostly the same driver as in downstream, but its function highly dependents on the configuration:

arm/bcm2835_defconfig = should work
arm/multi_v7_defconfig = may work
arm64/defconfig = won't work [1]

In order to the function of the driver use vchiq_test from the Raspberry Pi userland.

Btw testers are always welcome :-)
can it be used with Qt5 ?
If your application works with the downstream kernel, there is a high chance.
2) Can I have a working example of DT binding for the driver ?
This is one of my many TODOs [2] to provide a binding document. Please try the following old patch. The cache-line-size depends on the used SoC (BCM2835 = 32, BCM2836/BCM2837 = 64).

Good luck
