Re: DMA driver for BCM2835/Raspberry Pi
Well, I´m trying to get an overview about this topic. I´ve looked at
another SoCs DMA driver from NetBSD (s3c2440_dma.c) and at the FreeBSD
DMA driver for the BCM2835 SoC.
The NetBSD Wiki states a DMA driver and/with a dmover(9) backend is
needed. The s3c2440 DMA driver does not seem to offer a dmover(9)
backend, it looks to me like a bus_dma(9) inerface.
Can somebody explain what is needed and to what extent the FreeBSD
driver could serve as a template?
