HW I2C with 3.9-stable problems
« on: May 09, 2013, 11:40:01 AM »
Hi all,

I got i2c working with kernels 3.7.2 (modified alarm build) and 3.8.11, but I'm having trouble doing the same with the stable 3.9 release. Levels on both SDA and SCL just don't move when using the bus.

I've rebased Fadil's patch on v3.9 and added a couple of other useful patches. The entire changeset onto v3.9 I'm using is here.

Anyone know why this is? Do you have it working for you? If so -- how? Thanks!

Hi Niii,

I did try those out, but they don't seem to make a difference. The thing is, with or without the timeout patch I can see the SCL line toggling and SDA moving when `i2cdetect -r 0` with kernels <=3.8.11, but not with 3.9. They just stay high.
