SATA on kernel 3.4.75
« on: February 11, 2014, 01:28:53 PM »
Hello everyone

I compiled latest kernel for A10 Lime (git clone https://github.com/linux-sunxi/linux-sunxi)

Unfortunately SATA does not seem to be working on this kernel 3.4.75. I tested it against the original 3.4.67 kernel that came with SD card and that is mentioned in article http://olimex.wordpress.com/2013/12/13/building-debian-linux-image-for-a10-olinuxino-lime-with-kernel-3-4-67/

With kernel 3.4.67

Has anyone else experienced this ?

Some updates

Forgot to state that configurations are not exactly equal. kernel 3.4.75 has sunxi-nand disabled.

And that makes all the difference. If I enable sunxi_nand, SATA starts working again.

Any comment ?

Same hapens with kernel 3.4.79.
Please, could you specify the menuconfig option you activated to make it work again?

Yes, same to me also on kernel 3.4.79
What I do is compile nand and sata as modules.
After boot, I do modprobe sw_ahci_platform and SATA link is down.
After that, I do modprobe nand and SATA link resets and starts working correctly

My configuration for kernel 3.4.75 is here http://sprunge.us/SDQX

Verified on kernels 3.4.67, 3.4.75 and 3.4.79

I have an issue open on linux-sunxi about this
