From: Hans Verkuil <hans.verk...@cisco.com> This driver adds support for CEC implementations that use a pull-up GPIO pin. While SoCs exist that do this, the primary use-case is to turn a single-board computer into a cheap CEC debugger.
Together with 'cec-ctl --monitor-pin' you can do low-level CEC bus monitoring and do protocol analysis. And error injection is also planned for the future. Here is an example using the Raspberry Pi 3: https://hverkuil.home.xs4all.nl/rpi3-cec.jpg A patch for the Raspberry Pi 2B/3 is added below for reference. It uses pin 7 aka BCM4 aka GPCLK0 on the GPIO pin header. While this example is for the Rpi, this driver will work for any SoC with a pull-up GPIO pin. I have one question: is there a generic way to check/force the gpio to pull-up mode? I have not found that, but I am no gpio-expert. Regards, Hans Changes since v1: - Updated the bindings doc to not refer to the driver, instead refer to the hardware.
