  1. Bug#503172: linux-image-2.6.26-1-orion5x: Improve support for the DNS-323

    Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-orion5x
    Severity: normal
    Tags: patch

    The attached patch improves the kernel's support for the DNS-323 in a few
    areas:

    * It reads the MAC address for the on-board NIC out of flash, and uses it in
    the NIC initialisation (all DNS-323 models); and

    * The SATA controller for the rev B1 hardware (also used in the CH3SNAS)
    requires PCI to be disabled, and the SATA controller to be initialised
    separately.

    * The rev B1 hardware also has different MPP mappings.

    A functionally-equivalent patch has been prepared for the mainline kernel,
    and I'm working on getting that accepted upstream at the moment.

    I put the MAC patch into 2.6.26-9 already. Can you please make a
    patch with only the rev B1 changes (again 2.6.26-9)? (Sorry, short on
    time right now.)

    Sure, I've attached a SATA-only patch. I didn't realise you were so
    efficient.

    One more question before I apply this: do you have to update
    orion5x_gpio_set_valid_pins as well?

    I didn't change the GPIO pin map, so I don't think that I need to change the
    valid_pins. However, I'm not sure that the GPIO map is *necessarily* the
    same for the A1 and B1, so it's possible that it'll need to be updated. I
    know that there are more changes that need to be made to *fully* support the
    DNS-323 (i2c, fan, possibly LEDs); this patch is really targetted at just
    getting the kernel to the point where it'll run d-i and the system.

    OK, patch applied. Thanks.

    LEDs should work. I forwarded you a message regarding fan.
