00:15:23Torneit's not very friendly to look at at the moment though because that is 133 branch heads
00:15:32Tornesince svn tags are also treated as branches
00:15:45Torneand, er, a bunch of virtual branches for where we have done weird shit with svn is also treated as branches. :)
00:16:16Tornethose are all under refs/remotes
00:16:27Tornewe will discard all those refs once we stop needing to update from svn
00:16:37Torneso now i need to make proper git branch heads and tags for the ones we care about

00:16:54Tornebecause it's *tiny*
00:17:02Tornebut quite a lot of these branches have no content
00:17:15Torneand i can always put the old ones somewhere that clone won't bother cloning them by default

10:30:13wodzpamaury: can you point me out how usb drivers in rb works?
10:30:40wodzis there any documentation how to write usb driver?
10:31:05kugelpThe Code
10:31:11pamaurywodz: sure, not really
10:31:37pamaurythere are two different matters, both are very important: 1) usb detection 2) usb driver itself
10:32:05wodzusb detection is easy - the core sets the flag when usb connect occures
10:33:12bertrikI think there's also a separation in high-level more-or-less-generic "USB" code (e.g. the USB HID and MSC) and driver level USB code (to drive a specific USB controller)
10:33:14TheLemonManwodz, what do you mean with how cache performs ?
10:33:37wodzsee jhMikeS question
10:34:04pamauryof, the tricky part with usb detection is to make the whole machine work, it's a bit messy; for the usb driver
10:34:12pamauryyou need to implement these functions:
10:34:30pamauryusb_drv_init -> one time init (once per connection); so basically enable the usb core
10:34:45pamaury(and boost if needed, very important on some !)
10:34:53pamauryusb_drv_exit -> the oppositze
10:35:28pamauryusb_drv_port_speed -> return the port speed, I don't remember the value but basically it's 0=full speed, 1=high speed or the converse
10:35:42TheLemonManoh, usually the best combination is code in IRAM along with the most frequently used data
10:36:20pamauryusb_drv_request_endpoint -> reserve a endpoint; have a look at how other drivers to it; usually this is some administrative stuff + bit stuffing in the usb controller to set the type and max packet size
10:36:24wodzTheLemonMan: thats obvious the question is whats more important on ingenics as Iram is tight
10:36:38pamauryusb_drv_release_endpoint -> converse
10:37:17wodzpamaury: we reserve Control endpoint bulkin, bulkout
10:37:23wodzpamaury, something else?
10:37:33pamaurywe don't reserve control
10:37:35jhMikeSI can get it to build if I take the mixer callback out of IRAM. all the loops are fairly small. there's probably junk in pcmbuf.c that is pointless to have in IRAM anyway as well.
10:37:37pamauryit's EP0, always
10:37:57pamauryit is never reserved, so don't alloc it to other drivers ;)
10:38:09pamaurywe reserve bulk in/out, int in
10:38:58pamauryusb_drv_cancel_all_transfers -> kill all transfers; usually you need to set a bit for each endpoint and flush fifos. You should also call the completion handler with error status for everything
10:39:17pamauryusb_drv_recv -> setup a receive transfer; *non blocking*
10:39:35pamauryusb_drv_send setup a send transfer, *blocking*
10:39:45pamauryusb_drv_send_nonblocking -> "", *non blocking*
10:40:12pamauryusb_drv_set_test_mode -> set test mode, you can forget that for now, usually it's sufficient to bit copy the argument into some register of the controller
10:41:41pamauryusb_drv_set_address -> set the address (usually it's in a register); there is a problem here: some controller want the address to be set between control out and ack and some want to wait for the end of the transaction. In the first case, you need to write some code special code when getting setup packets and ignore this function (have a look at other drives)

10:42:04pamauryusb_drv_stalled -> ...

10:46:31max131Has the AMSv2 USB code been merged in rockbox already? I've got a patched version running r29857 now on my FuzeV2, and i was wondering if i still need to do patching on the current code base.
10:46:32jhMikeSTheLemonMan: it has no I-cache? the code execution is far more coherent because of small loops than the data
10:47:16wodzjhMikeS: google says it has 16kB I-cache and 16kB d-cache
10:47:29TheLemonManit has separate D/I-cache so coherency isn't assured
10:47:37pamaurythe amsv2 code doesn't work reliably
10:48:12pamaurymax131: which patch ?
10:50:51max131if i remember well i applied both as3525v2-enable-usb.diff and as3525v2-usb.diff
10:51:49max131never tried the usb-pio.diff though
10:52:02jhMikeSTheLemonMan: I meant that the cached code is used over and over in a loop while the data would miss more often since it's way larger than 16KB. The ARM targets with separate I/D cache don't need much or any IRAM assistance with mixing.
10:53:37pamaurythe as3525v2-usb.diff is perhaps not necessary (it's a hacky workaround), the other one is needed to enable usb
10:53:56 Quit wodz (Quit: Leaving)
10:55:57TheLemonManif all the data is used into the looping code then it's a problem
10:56:03max131@pamaury, when you say the amsv2 code doesn't work reliably, do you mean the stock rockbox code, without any patch applied?
10:56:31n1smax131: the patch just enables the usb code already in svn
10:56:41pamaurythe stock have it disable but with the patches it's unreliable; it works for some, doesn't work for others

12:16:00pamauryTheLemonMan: does your custom code uses the ocram ?
12:16:42pamauryI think the ROM has a limitation: it uses the upper part of the ocram for itself and leaves the lower part for the custom code
12:17:30TheLemonManthe official nand booter is rebased at 0 too so dont think it's a space limitation
12:18:38pamauryI mean, the ocram is 32kb (confirm ?), and the bootloader uses the higher 16kb so you shouldn't load more than 16kb to ocram at address 0 with the sb file

13:00:11jhMikeSn1s: the principle increase is 2k for the mixdown double buffer, which can have a smaller size at the expense of more interrupts
13:01:53n1sthere seems to be a *lot* of lcd code in iram i wonder how much that actually gains
13:03:46n1slooks like ~4.8k for all the lcd_* functions in icode

13:18:21Torneso there's going to be at least three.
13:18:33Tornewww is actually branched from inside trunk
13:18:39Tornesince it used to be a subdirectory
13:18:46n1sjhMikeS: yeah, i think only pixelma has an m5 though
13:18:48Tornethis means the root there is trunk/www, not www
13:18:57Torneand that history includes duplicate copies of all commits that touched trunk/www before the split.
13:19:01Tornewhich is fun.
13:19:11Torneas it means therea re multiple git commits with the same svn revision number :)
13:19:24Tornelikewise for songdbj
13:19:43Torneand then the same thing happens a couple more times possibly by accident where people have sometimes branched only subtrees of trunk for rbutil/bootloaders/etc
13:20:05Tornesome of this will go away when i push stuff to seperate repos, but the bootloaders/rbutil subtree branches are.. interesting.
13:25:02jhMikeSn1s: ok, then who cares if it works any more :P
13:25:20n1si bet she does :)

13:33:17n1samiconn: ah, didn't think of plugins
13:33:23amiconnOh, and you can't

13:47:42Tornekugel: because svn tags are normal commits and thus can contain diffs

13:48:07AlexandrosSchillDon't worry I won't mess around. I'll fix a few missing links that I found when I was researching putting rockbox on my fuzev2
13:48:22Tornesome because people were "naughty" and some because the git conversion handles tagging only a subdirectory interestingly
13:48:27kugelTorne: oh, that sucks balls
13:48:36Tornekugel: I'm going to do magic to fix it where possible.
13:48:44TorneThe actual release tags for 3.0+ are fine

13:49:35TorneDifferent things were done differently.
13:49:39Torneit's not a problem, seriously.
13:49:53TorneThe things that have diffs can also become git tags, the branch is not required
13:50:03Tornethe existence of the tag keeps the commit reachable even if no branch head points to it
13:50:16Torneit just looks slightly odd in a history graph, but only if youa ctually bother to look back that far.
13:51:12TorneI'm probably going to keep all the old tags and branches just for historical reference but will put them in refs/oldheads or similar
13:51:26Tornewhich will mean git clone won't bother to fetch them by default and thus you won't see them unless you explicitly pull them

13:52:12Tornegit delta compression is excellent ;)
13:52:32kugelI only worry about a too large git branch tab completion :)
13:52:50Tornekugel: Yeah, that's reasonable
13:53:56Tornethe default refspec for a fresh clone fetches refs/heads/* to refs/remotes/origin/* so anything outside heads won't appear in your tab completion as your local repo won't know about it
13:54:58AlexandrosSchillNah, my bad. I should have noticed

14:20:46***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:21:45amiconnThe icache is somewhat nasty. Because it's direct mapped,relative location of functions in dram matters. This is probably what you're seeing
14:22:58jhMikeSIt's only about 11 fps (4621/4611), just substituting regular lcd_bitmap functions for the greylib calls
14:41:59jhMikeSIf those bmp functions are moved to dram, then there's some iram to spare without much to worry about for speed. I just wonder, is it really critical in that sense on any other target to have them as icode?
14:46:17amiconnSubstituting what, where?
14:47:41jhMikeScalling rb->lcd_bitmap instead of grey_ub_gray_bitmap since test_fps doesn't do the framebuffer functions by default
14:48:19amiconnUse test_gfx
14:49:10jhMikeSheh...forgot about that one
14:49:11amiconnHmm, that one doesn't do native bitmaps though
14:49:27amiconnBut it does text, i.e. mono bitmaps
14:50:52amiconntest_fps() is probably a bad example, because it uses large bitmaps, where most time is spent in lowlevel stuff like memcpy()
14:54:23jhMikeSwhat do you mean? I just see small loops calling grey_ub_gray_bitmap

20:27:10wodzso basicaly I have to map requested type|dir to physical endpoint?
20:28:09pamaurythere can be several request with the same parameters
20:28:15pamauryto request several endpoints
20:31:01wodzhmm I am slowly starting to understand
20:31:37pamaurylet's take an example: you device has 3 endpoint, each endpoint can handle any type and is bidirectional
20:31:58wodzmine has 16 endpoints
20:32:02pamauryis someone request a bulk ep IN, you will configure EP1IN as bulk
20:32:19pamaurythen if someone request a int ep OUT, you will configure EP2OUT as int
20:32:38wodzha here is the trick - rk27xx has predefined endpoints
20:32:42pamauryfinally, if someone request a bulk ep OUT, you can configure EP1OUT as bulk because EP1 is bidirectional
20:33:06pamaurywait, I'll have a look a the rk27xx datasheet
20:33:12wodzI can't switch BULK1 into something else
20:34:29pamauryindeed, in your case you have unidirectional endpoints
20:36:47pamauryEP1=bulk out,EP2=bulk in,EP3=int in, EP4=bulk out,EP5=bulk in,EP6=int in, ...
20:37:46pamauryso you only need to keep a map of boolean saying for each endpoint if it used or not. when requested for a endpoint, you look for the first endpoint of that type which is free and select it
20:39:05*amiconn should probably try to cut down the coldfire memcpy/memmove asm once more

20:41:36wodzamiconn: can't we use spare DMA channel for larger transfers?
20:42:15amiconnDMA with auto-align is broken, and without it it's slower than using the cpu
20:42:39wodzbroken i which way?
20:43:06wodzI recall we set aa mode in pcm driver
20:43:29amiconnIt transfers garbage if enabled
20:44:06wodzso why we use this in pcm transfers?
20:44:22amiconnAfaik we don't
20:44:32wodzhmm pcm transfers are 4byte aligned I guess
20:44:58wodzso I guess we use AA
20:45:07amiconnThere are further restrictions. (1) memcpy/memmove might be called in an isr, potentially interrupting another memcpy/memmove. We'd have to protect from this and resort to using the cpu if it happens -> more complexity
20:45:32rudi_sHi. still lists changes since 3.8 (SVN), maybe this could get updated. Thanks for the new release.
20:45:41amiconn(2) Iirc DMA can only copy forward -> it can't be used for memove if the kind of overlap demands backwards copying
20:45:59amiconn(3) There are memory blocks (namely the second iram bank) which aren't dma capable
20:46:53amiconnwodz: It may be that auto-align works in (dma capable) iram, but when I tried it with dram (for H300 lcd) it didn't work
20:48:12wodzthe fact that pcm samples are 4bytes alligned may be the reason it just work
20:49:06amiconnIt would only be useful if dma would actually be faster, because we'd have to busy-poll for completion
20:49:50amiconnUsually we'd set up an isr for signalling completion and then yield(), but we can't do those things in stuff as low-level as memcpy
20:50:10amiconnIt might be called before the threading system is set up, or with interrupts disabled etc...
20:51:13wodzAt least in my tests on mpios dma was faster than somehow optimized writes to lcd. But other problems with DMA are predominant here
20:51:41wodzanyway memcpy/memmove *are* the monsters :-)

21:02:41jhMikeSIs there possibly an objection to IRAM splits between core and codec that are smaller grained than 0x1000?
21:05:43amiconnNot from me. Just keep in mind that you need to bum the codec and plugin api versions (including minimum version) when changing iram split
21:06:19jhMikeSoh, definitely. they won't link at the correct address.
21:06:36jhMikeSor currently be linked rather
21:06:36amiconnActually this isn't necessary when moving the boundary down, but it definitely is when moving it up
21:07:10jhMikeSWell, I plan so far to move it up by 0x800
21:07:12amiconnThe codecs and plugins would load and run, but they would overwrite part of core iram
21:07:25jhMikeSwhich is bad? :)
21:07:42amiconnYou might wait whether we can free some iram elsewhere
21:07:49amiconn*might want to
