int v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_parse(struct fwnode_handle *fwnode, struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint *vep)

parse all fwnode node properties

Parameters

struct fwnode_handle * fwnode

pointer to the endpoint’s fwnode handle

struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint * vep

pointer to the V4L2 fwnode data structure

Description

This function parses the V4L2 fwnode endpoint specific parameters from the firmware. The caller is responsible for assigning vep.bus_type to a valid media bus type. The caller may also set the default configuration for the endpoint — a configuration that shall be in line with the DT binding documentation. Should a device support multiple bus types, the caller may call this function once the correct type is found — with a default configuration valid for that type.

As a compatibility means guessing the bus type is also supported by setting vep.bus_type to V4L2_MBUS_UNKNOWN. The caller may not provide a default configuration in this case as the defaults are specific to a given bus type. This functionality is deprecated and should not be used in new drivers and it is only supported for CSI-2 D-PHY, parallel and Bt.656 buses.

The function does not change the V4L2 fwnode endpoint state if it fails.

NOTE

This function does not parse properties the size of which is variable without a low fixed limit. Please use v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_alloc_parse() in new drivers instead.

Return

0 on success or a negative error code on failure:

-ENOMEM on memory allocation failure -EINVAL on parsing failure -ENXIO on mismatching bus types

void v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_free(struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint *vep)

free the V4L2 fwnode acquired by v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_alloc_parse()

Parameters

struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint * vep

the V4L2 fwnode the resources of which are to be released

Description

It is safe to call this function with NULL argument or on a V4L2 fwnode the parsing of which failed.

int v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_alloc_parse(struct fwnode_handle *fwnode, struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint *vep)

parse all fwnode node properties

Parameters

struct fwnode_handle * fwnode

pointer to the endpoint’s fwnode handle

struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint * vep

pointer to the V4L2 fwnode data structure

Description

This function parses the V4L2 fwnode endpoint specific parameters from the firmware. The caller is responsible for assigning vep.bus_type to a valid media bus type. The caller may also set the default configuration for the endpoint — a configuration that shall be in line with the DT binding documentation. Should a device support multiple bus types, the caller may call this function once the correct type is found — with a default configuration valid for that type.

As a compatibility means guessing the bus type is also supported by setting vep.bus_type to V4L2_MBUS_UNKNOWN. The caller may not provide a default configuration in this case as the defaults are specific to a given bus type. This functionality is deprecated and should not be used in new drivers and it is only supported for CSI-2 D-PHY, parallel and Bt.656 buses.

The function does not change the V4L2 fwnode endpoint state if it fails.

v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_alloc_parse() has two important differences to v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_parse():

  1. It also parses variable size data.

  2. The memory it has allocated to store the variable size data must be freed using v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_free() when no longer needed.

Return

0 on success or a negative error code on failure:

-ENOMEM on memory allocation failure -EINVAL on parsing failure -ENXIO on mismatching bus types

parse a link between two endpoints

Parameters

struct fwnode_handle * fwnode

pointer to the endpoint’s fwnode at the local end of the link

struct v4l2_fwnode_link * link

pointer to the V4L2 fwnode link data structure

Description

Fill the link structure with the local and remote nodes and port numbers. The local_node and remote_node fields are set to point to the local and remote port’s parent nodes respectively (the port parent node being the parent node of the port node if that node isn’t a ‘ports’ node, or the grand-parent node of the port node otherwise).

A reference is taken to both the local and remote nodes, the caller must use v4l2_fwnode_put_link() to drop the references when done with the link.

Return

0 on success, or -ENOLINK if the remote endpoint fwnode can’t be found.

drop references to nodes in a link

Parameters

struct v4l2_fwnode_link * link

pointer to the V4L2 fwnode link data structure

Description

Drop references to the local and remote nodes in the link. This function must be called on every link parsed with v4l2_fwnode_parse_link().

void v4l2_fwnode_connector_free(struct v4l2_fwnode_connector *connector)

free the V4L2 connector acquired memory

Parameters

struct v4l2_fwnode_connector * connector

the V4L2 connector resources of which are to be released

Description

Free all allocated memory and put all links acquired by v4l2_fwnode_connector_parse() and v4l2_fwnode_connector_add_link().

It is safe to call this function with NULL argument or on a V4L2 connector the parsing of which failed.

int v4l2_fwnode_connector_parse(struct fwnode_handle *fwnode, struct v4l2_fwnode_connector *connector)

initialize the ‘struct v4l2_fwnode_connector’

Parameters

struct fwnode_handle * fwnode

pointer to the subdev endpoint’s fwnode handle where the connector is connected to or to the connector endpoint fwnode handle.

struct v4l2_fwnode_connector * connector

pointer to the V4L2 fwnode connector data structure

Description

Fill the struct v4l2_fwnode_connector with the connector type, label and all enum v4l2_connector_type specific connector data. The label is optional so it is set to NULL if no one was found. The function initialize the links to zero. Adding links to the connector is done by calling v4l2_fwnode_connector_add_link().

The memory allocated for the label must be freed when no longer needed. Freeing the memory is done by v4l2_fwnode_connector_free().

Return

  • 0 on success or a negative error code on failure:

  • -EINVAL if fwnode is invalid

  • -ENOTCONN if connector type is unknown or connector device can’t be found

add a link between a connector node and a v4l2-subdev node.

Parameters

struct fwnode_handle * fwnode

pointer to the subdev endpoint’s fwnode handle where the connector is connected to

struct v4l2_fwnode_connector * connector

pointer to the V4L2 fwnode connector data structure

Description

Add a new struct v4l2_connector_link link to the struct v4l2_fwnode_connector connector links list. The link local_node points to the connector node, the remote_node to the host v4l2 (sub)dev.

The taken references to remote_node and local_node must be dropped and the allocated memory must be freed when no longer needed. Both is done by calling v4l2_fwnode_connector_free().

Return

  • 0 on success or a negative error code on failure:

  • -EINVAL if fwnode or connector is invalid or connector type is unknown

  • -ENOMEM on link memory allocation failure

  • -ENOTCONN if remote connector device can’t be found

  • -ENOLINK if link parsing between v4l2 (sub)dev and connector fails

This function parses and validates the V4L2 fwnode device properties from the firmware interface, and fills the struct v4l2_fwnode_device_properties provided by the caller.

Return

% 0 on success -EINVAL if a parsed property value is not valid

type parse_endpoint_func

Typedef: Driver’s callback function to be called on each V4L2 fwnode endpoint.

Syntax

int parse_endpoint_func (struct device * dev, struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint * vep, struct v4l2_async_subdev * asd);

Parameters

struct device * dev

pointer to struct device

struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint * vep

pointer to struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint

struct v4l2_async_subdev * asd

pointer to struct v4l2_async_subdev

Return

  • 0 on success

  • -ENOTCONN if the endpoint is to be skipped but this should not be considered as an error

  • -EINVAL if the endpoint configuration is invalid

int v4l2_async_notifier_parse_fwnode_endpoints(struct device *dev, struct v4l2_async_notifier *notifier, size_t asd_struct_size, parse_endpoint_func parse_endpoint)

Parse V4L2 fwnode endpoints in a device node

Parameters

struct device * dev

the device the endpoints of which are to be parsed

struct v4l2_async_notifier * notifier

notifier for dev

size_t asd_struct_size

size of the driver’s async sub-device struct, including sizeof(struct v4l2_async_subdev). The struct v4l2_async_subdev shall be the first member of the driver’s async sub-device struct, i.e. both begin at the same memory address.

parse_endpoint_func parse_endpoint

Driver’s callback function called on each V4L2 fwnode endpoint. Optional.

Description

Parse the fwnode endpoints of the dev device and populate the async sub- devices list in the notifier. The parse_endpoint callback function is called for each endpoint with the corresponding async sub-device pointer to let the caller initialize the driver-specific part of the async sub-device structure.

The notifier memory shall be zeroed before this function is called on the notifier.

This function may not be called on a registered notifier and may be called on a notifier only once.

The struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint passed to the callback function parse_endpoint is released once the function is finished. If there is a need to retain that configuration, the user needs to allocate memory for it.

Any notifier populated using this function must be released with a call to v4l2_async_notifier_cleanup() after it has been unregistered and the async sub-devices are no longer in use, even if the function returned an error.

Return

0 on success, including when no async sub-devices are found

-ENOMEM if memory allocation failed -EINVAL if graph or endpoint parsing failed Other error codes as returned by parse_endpoint

int v4l2_async_notifier_parse_fwnode_endpoints_by_port(struct device *dev, struct v4l2_async_notifier *notifier, size_t asd_struct_size, unsigned int port, parse_endpoint_func parse_endpoint)

Parse V4L2 fwnode endpoints of a port in a device node

Parameters

struct device * dev

the device the endpoints of which are to be parsed

struct v4l2_async_notifier * notifier

notifier for dev

size_t asd_struct_size

size of the driver’s async sub-device struct, including sizeof(struct v4l2_async_subdev). The struct v4l2_async_subdev shall be the first member of the driver’s async sub-device struct, i.e. both begin at the same memory address.

unsigned int port

port number where endpoints are to be parsed

parse_endpoint_func parse_endpoint

Driver’s callback function called on each V4L2 fwnode endpoint. Optional.

Description

This function is just like v4l2_async_notifier_parse_fwnode_endpoints() with the exception that it only parses endpoints in a given port. This is useful on devices that have both sinks and sources: the async sub-devices connected to sources have already been configured by another driver (on capture devices). In this case the driver must know which ports to parse.

Parse the fwnode endpoints of the dev device on a given port and populate the async sub-devices list of the notifier. The parse_endpoint callback function is called for each endpoint with the corresponding async sub-device pointer to let the caller initialize the driver-specific part of the async sub-device structure.

The notifier memory shall be zeroed before this function is called on the notifier the first time.

This function may not be called on a registered notifier and may be called on a notifier only once per port.

The struct v4l2_fwnode_endpoint passed to the callback function parse_endpoint is released once the function is finished. If there is a need to retain that configuration, the user needs to allocate memory for it.

Any notifier populated using this function must be released with a call to v4l2_async_notifier_cleanup() after it has been unregistered and the async sub-devices are no longer in use, even if the function returned an error.

Return

0 on success, including when no async sub-devices are found

-ENOMEM if memory allocation failed -EINVAL if graph or endpoint parsing failed Other error codes as returned by parse_endpoint

int v4l2_async_notifier_parse_fwnode_sensor_common(struct device *dev, struct v4l2_async_notifier *notifier)

parse common references on sensors for async sub-devices

Parameters

struct device * dev

the device node the properties of which are parsed for references

struct v4l2_async_notifier * notifier

the async notifier where the async subdevs will be added

Description

Parse common sensor properties for remote devices related to the sensor and set up async sub-devices for them.

Any notifier populated using this function must be released with a call to v4l2_async_notifier_release() after it has been unregistered and the async sub-devices are no longer in use, even in the case the function returned an error.

Return

0 on success

-ENOMEM if memory allocation failed -EINVAL if property parsing failed
