Based on the previous patches, this patch supports the
LPC host on hip06/hip07 for ACPI FW.

It is the responsibility of the LPC host driver to
enumerate the child devices, as the ACPI scan code will
not enumerate children of "indirect IO" hosts.

The ACPI table for the LPC host controller and the child
devices is in the following format:
  Device (LPC0) {
    Name (_HID, "HISI0191")  // HiSi LPC
    Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate () {
      Memory32Fixed (ReadWrite, 0xa01b0000, 0x1000)

  Device (LPC0.IPMI) {
    Name (_HID, "IPI0001")
    Name (LORS, ResourceTemplate() {
      QWordIO (
        MinNotFixed,     // _MIF
        MaxNotFixed,     // _MAF
        0x0,             // _GRA
        0xe4,            // _MIN
        0x3fff,          // _MAX
        0x0,             // _TRA
        0x04,            // _LEN
        , ,

Since the IO resources of the child devices need to be
translated from LPC bus addresses to logical PIO addresses,
and we shouldn't modify the resources of the devices
generated in the FW scan, a per-child MFD is created as
a substitute. The MFD IO resources will be the translated
bus addresses of the ACPI child.

Hi Andy,

Ok, this needs to be thought about a bit more.

I guess I understand what's is the problem with PNP IDs in the driver.

You probe your LPC device quite late.
One option is to move from classical probe to a event-driven model, i.e.
via registering a notifier (see acpi_lpss.c), preparing necessary stuff
at earlier stages and then register devices by their enumeration and

Though, if I would be you I would seek a opinion from Rafael and Mika
(maybe others as well).

I would like to give a bit more background on this HW. This HW is now for us a legacy device. It will be used in no more chipsets. It is only used in hip06 and hip07 chipsets on our D03 and D05 boards, respectively. On these boards we have the following LPC slave devices only:

Supporting IPMI for D05 is required. Supporting legacy D03 and the UART is a "nice-to-have". But it is definitely ok for us to not support this device.

Our previous ACPI support solution did use a scan handler for this host, but there was some sensible pushback on this - please check this if not familiar: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/2/14/532

Overall it does not make sense to try to move this back to drivers/acpi and receive more pushback from that direction, and only delay indefinitely upstreaming this driver (which is now running at ~27 months since v1) to just support a PNP-compatible device which we don't care too much about.

..._PREFIX) - 1)

I didn't think so. But now I have noticed that ACPI_ID_LEN is 9 (which of course it needs to be for pnpid name), and not 8. I was thinking that the sizeof(MFD_CHILD_NAME_PREFIX) was providing the extra byte for the NULL terminator I required.

The idea is that having no IO resources is a failure for a slave device on this bus. So then, if count == 0, we should error.

Is it by design? (I didn't check acpi_create_platform_device() though)

One line, please.

Should be possible. I just want to keep checkpatch happy.

Just noticed that calloc() memory layout is not the same how you are
using it.

Right, because we need to group the MFD cells together.

No possibility of identical devices?

As explained above, actually no in reality. So I should comment on this.

+       ret = mfd_add_devices(hostdev,


You mean it's not possible to have more than one identical device?

Again, as above, this would not happen. I could make the code more generic, but I feel that there is little gain.

+               return ret;
+       }
