Hello Peng,

This patch is to implement pfuze_mode_init and pfuze_regulator_mode_set
function, and add prototype in header file.

pfuze_mode_init is to set switching mode for all buck regulators to
improve system efficiency.
pfuze_regulator_mode_set is to set the regulator's mode according input

OFF: The regulator is switched off and the output voltage is discharged.
PFM: In this mode, the regulator is always in PFM mode, which
      is useful at light loads for optimized efficiency.
PWM: In this mode, the regulator is always in PWM mode operation
      regardless of load conditions.
APS: In this mode, the regulator moves automatically between
      pulse skipping mode and PWM mode depending on load conditions.

Changes v2:
  implement one function mode for one regulator.

+/* Set one switch regulator's mode */

This is not exactly what I mean.
Actually by doing this, we have pmic_reg_write() function with just the other name.

+int pfuze_regulator_mode_set(struct pmic *p, u32 regulator, u32 mode)
+    return pmic_reg_write(p, regulator, mode);

The 'u32 regulator' suggests to pass the regulator number rather than defined mode register address - little unclear.

And the "pfuze.." function name is general and should be implemented by pfuze driver, which could be 'temporary' implemented in:


And this driver should take care of the PFUZE id and write the given mode to proper pmic register address.

I mean 'temporary' because, soon we will move to the next pmic framework, finally I hope to send it at the end of the next week.

+/* Set all switch regulators' working mode */

So I think, that the below function without the loop could be implemented in the pfuze driver file.

+int pfuze_mode_init(struct pmic *p, u32 mode)

Starting with some like this:

int pfuze_sw_regulator_mode_set(struct pmic *p, u32 ??switch_num??, u32 mode)

+    unsigned char offset, i, switch_num;
+    u32 id, ret;
+    pmic_reg_read(p, PFUZE100_DEVICEID, &id);
+    id = id & 0xf;
+    if (id == 0) {
+        switch_num = 6;
+        offset = PFUZE100_SW1CMODE;
+    } else if (id == 1) {
+        switch_num = 4;
+        offset = PFUZE100_SW2MODE;
+    } else {
+        printf("Not supported, id=%d\n", id);
+        return -1;
+    }
Ending with something like this:
ret = pmic_reg_write(p, offset + switch_num * 7, mode);
if (ret ...

And this code below can stay in the 'common.c' code, with small changes:
ret = pfuze_sw_regulator_mode_set(p, 1, mode);
+    ret = pfuze_regulator_mode_set(p, PFUZE100_SW1ABMODE, mode);
+    if (ret < 0) {
+        printf("Set SW1AB mode error!\n");
+        return ret;
+    }
+    for (i = 0; i < switch_num - 1; i++) {

ret = pfuze_sw_regulator_mode_set(p, i, mode);

+        ret = pfuze_regulator_mode_set(p, offset + i * 7, mode);
+        if (ret < 0) {
+            printf("Set switch%x mode error!\n", offset + i * 7);
+            return ret;
+        }
+    }
+    return ret;

+int pfuze_regulator_mode_set(struct pmic *p, u32 regulator, u32 mode);

And this:

int pfuze_sw_regulator_mode_set(...);

should go here:


I suggested the 'sw' in the function name for the switching regulator type, so then we can pass just switching regulator number as an argument: e.g. 1,2,3...

And maybe in the future you will need ldo or some else regulator type,
so adding 'pfuze_ldo_regulator_mode_set' function, will keep the code consistence.

I would like to keep the driver specific code in driver file and common code in the common file.
Thanks for your review.
Get it. I think this first version is fine for me now, this new feature can be done in future patch.

I think it is reasonable. If you now prefer to keep the first version of this patch set, then you have still my ACK for it:).
