Raspberry Pi B is a single core device which runs with 700 MHz cpu freq. > Oh, probably this so slow because we're just getting interrupted > constantly.

Since the FTDI (full speed device) and the PL2303 (also full speed device) behaves differently, i will try to compare those ftraces. > > Presumably the big part of your problem is that dwc2_handle_hcd_intr() > is just too slow.

Unfortunately the bcm2835 datasheet  doesn't provide many information about the USB IP core and the Synopsys documents aren't public available. The Raspberry Pi Foundation decided to use a different driver which uses FIQ in the downstream tree , but this won't be an option here. Maybe i could start with comparing the register settings between dwc2 and dwc_otg.  - https://www.raspberrypi.org/app/uploads/2012/02/BCM2835-ARM-Peripherals.pdf  - https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/commit/65165df02f2ba9feccebf45d8c732dffb34b6109 > Possibly > some of those memory mapped IOs talking to dwc2 could be making > everything slow? > > Other than that, maybe you can find some way to optimize the code in > dwc2 so it runs faster, at least in the cases you care about... > -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-usb" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
