Thanks, guys. So this feature is now part of hikey-mainline-rebase (v4.4).
If hikey is to work with unmodified upstream code doesn't someone (KWG/Me?) have to make this "hack" (which is in the common USB driver) more palatable?
Yea. There's still enough less controversial functionality to get upstream to keep folks busy, but eventually we will get down to the few hardware specific quirks like this that we need to solve in a generic fashion (hikey's restricted HDMI modes is another similar quirk). To some extent it will depend on the maintainers desire to accommodate such a quirk.
having said that nothing should discourage you to improve the code David
- this and some other fixes/workarounds were not planned activities if
that is what you are asking, just some hours spent after work (I have the feeling that you are asking about having a proper process in place to deal with issues like this?)
I'm just looking to help convert local fixes to known problems into acceptable upstream patches (in core code). I don't want to be duplicating work someone else is already doing or necessarily starting with the lowest priority issues, but this is a documented limitation where we might be able to take an existing quick fix and turn it into something acceptable upstream. I'm only looking at it now because I personally ran into it as a regression. I'm not sure if the current USB items in the gantt chart cover this issue, and someone could certainly tell me different core changes need to be upstreamed first. Do feel free to point out any process I might be missing here.
