Read This First
- This release adds support for V4L2 capture driver on top of 04.01.00.06 release. There is no major change in this release apart from addition of V4L2 capture. Please refer to 04.01.00.05 release notes for more details about change between 04.01.00.05 release and 04.01.00.16 release.
- Please note that V4L2 capture driver requires I2C2 instance to be controlled from Linux side. So any of the application/driver trying to access I2C2 from any other processor wont work.
- Only one instance of V4L2 capture driver is supported with TVP7002 decoder
This is Release 04.01.00.06 of TI814x Linux PSP tested on DM8148 EVM. The EVM(Rev B DDR3) consists of base board, catalog application card and LCD adapter board In the rest of the document, we will refer this setup as DM8148 EVM.
The Linux PSP serves to provide a fundamental software platform for development, deployment and execution of Linux based applications on Texas Instruments DM8148 EVM. The Linux kernel and U-Boot software in this release are based on the following open source repositories:

Fixed in this Release
This section lists issues fixed in this release:
||DM81xx:V4L2 Capture: FPS is low with capture +fbdev loop back
||DM81xx:V4L2 Capture: Kernel dump is seen on starting capture
||DM81xx:V4L2 Capture: Capture driver continously reports "Unable to allocatebuffers"
||This happens where capture driver is configured for un-supported values. rmmod ti81xxvin.ko and insmod ti81xxvin.ko|
||DM81xx:FBDEV: FBDEV driver does not take bpp change effect first time |
|SDOCM00082716||ti814x: clock: ADPLL's clkout rate is different from what is programmed|
|SDOCM00082475||USB:TI8XX: Removal of flash drive during file i/o will lead to crash observed from filesystem module|
|SDOCM00081534||DM81XX: Dual musb controller with one controller(usb0) as host and other controller(usb1) as device feature is not supported|
||USB:TI8XX: The file i/o to flash drive fails when connected through Full Speed HUB|
|SDOCM00083827||omap:mtd:nand: unable to boot uboot if it is flashed from kernel|
|SDOCM00082763||SD: Hang observed on removal and insertion of sd card|
|SDOCM00082505||TI81XX: NAND module support: Second insmod of nand driver (omap2.ko) fails due to improper cleanup during rmmod|
This section lists known issues observed in this release:
|SDOCM00084027||ti814x: clock: clock parent change is not reflected in debugfs||None|
|SDOCM00084446||ti814x: pm: suspend-resume: DDR should be in self refresh mode before entering suspend||None. In the future releasses, DDR will be put in self-refresh mode during suspend to save power and execution should be done from OCMC|
||Audio: Overrun, underrun errors observed for less period sizes less than 64 frames
|| Use period size >64.|
||Fourth test(try to write off end of device) in mtd_oobtest is failing for read on third mtd partition
This is a limitation in Linux NAND stack. Fourth mtd_oobtest will fail if used in intermediate partitions in a flash device. Hence if mtd4 is used for mtd_oobtest it would succeed.
MMC/SD card's write protect status is not detected.
Writes can happen on the SD/MMC card irrespective of whether the write protect switch on the card is on or off.
The signal MMC1_SD_WP is by default not connected to pin AG4. Instead signal UART0_DSRn is connected.
||Kernel build fails if IOMMU Debug-FS is enabled in kernel configuration
||Disable iommu debug-fs support during kernel configuration (menuconfig)|
||CCS based NAND flashing tool can be used only to flash bootloader
||This is a limitation mainly due to the different ECC scheme and ECC layouts used for different images. Hence for flashing other images (like linux kernel and filesystem) use u-boot or uart boot mode.|
||DM81XX:USB: After four times insmod and rmmod of ti81xx.ko in loop causes crash in dma_alloc_free in cppi41dma driver
||Remove all the modules in reverse order and insert all modules in right order again.|
||DM81XX:USB: MUSB_DUAL_ROLE : Host mode is not working for PG1.x under MUSB Dual ROLE
||Will be fixed in next release. refer to arago tree for updated patches.|
||USB_Audio:seeing many warnings while unpluging USB audiodevice and DUT hangs for sometime
||Make sure audio play is stopped before removing device.|
||USB build warnings: Gives out warnings
||DebugFS entries for pinmux show incorrect status for pins
||DebugFS is currently not supported for DM81xx pinmux. Please refer user guide for details about changing pinmux settings. While the associated register value read from debugfs should still show correct value (only pullup/pulldown decoding is incorrect).|
||USB:DM814X: Dynamic detection of USB-ID pin not working on DM814X PG2 when device connected after linux bootup
|SDOCM00078500||Audio playback cannot start till record is started||This issue is seen when running capture and playback simultaneously after boot-up. If either a capture or a playback operation precedes the simultaneous operation then things work fine. This problem is due to the recent changes in the ASoC framework|
||McSPI loadable module support broken, second time insmod of McSPI driver fails.
||None. Requires a system reboot.|
||Hyperlinks in the PDF documents in the release package are missing
||This is a known issue. The PDF rendering tool in processor wiki removes the hyperlinks while generating PDF documents. Please use the online wiki documents mentioned in Useful Links section (at the end of this release notes) |
||SATA driver does not support suspend/resume
||This support is not available in the current release. Hence when the system switches to low power state and if SATA support is enabled in the kernel then the suspend/resume process will not disable SATA module and PHY. But this will not affect the suspend / resume process.|
||TI816X ALSA SoC Audio Resume Fails due to I/O error
||System resume from PM suspend state Causes the background audio playback to fail due to "aplay: pcm_write:1528: write error: Input/output error". This will not block any Suspend/Resume functionality and the audio play back can be restart after the failure with out any issue .|
||ti814x: cpsw: PTP time syncronization not happening when connected to Port 2
||SATA hotplug support does not work after a unplug during read/write access.
||Do not unplug SATA cable during access|
||SATA devices cannot be configured to work in PIO mode using the hdparm tool
||None. Only option is to use DMA mode.|
||Nand 4-bit ECC is not working in both kernel and uboot
||We plan to support UBIFS for DM814x.|
||SATA read/write issues due to internal 20MHz clock
||The internal 20MHz clock source for SATA PLL has some issues. This is being used as the default clock for SATA. Hence we were seeing interface fatal errors. This is a hardware issue. The workaround is to either use the 100MHz external clock from PCIe or find a 20mhz clock source on the board and feed into XI/CLKIN. The later option is transparent and does not require code change but the former requires code change and the PCIe PLL has to be programmed for this.|
