ACPI Debug Output
The ACPI CA, the Linux ACPI core, and some ACPI drivers can generate debug
output. This document describes how to use this facility.
Compile-time configuration
--------------------------
ACPI debug output is globally enabled by CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG. If this config
option is turned off, the debug messages are not even built into the
kernel.
Boot- and run-time configuration
--------------------------------
When CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG=y, you can select the component and level of messages
you're interested in. At boot-time, use the acpi.debug_layer and
acpi.debug_level kernel command line options. After boot, you can use the
debug_layer and debug_level files in /sys/module/acpi/parameters/ to control
the debug messages.
debug_layer (component)
-----------------------
The "debug_layer" is a mask that selects components of interest, e.g., a
specific driver or part of the ACPI interpreter. To build the debug_layer
bitmask, look for the "#define _COMPONENT" in an ACPI source file.
You can set the debug_layer mask at boot-time using the acpi.debug_layer
command line argument, and you can change it after boot by writing values
to /sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_layer.
The possible components are defined in include/acpi/acoutput.h and
include/acpi/acpi_drivers.h. Reading /sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_layer
shows the supported mask values, currently these:
ACPI_UTILITIES 0x00000001
ACPI_HARDWARE 0x00000002
ACPI_EVENTS 0x00000004
ACPI_TABLES 0x00000008

ACPI_MEMORY_DEVICE_COMPONENT 0x08000000
ACPI_VIDEO_COMPONENT 0x10000000
ACPI_PROCESSOR_COMPONENT 0x20000000
debug_level
-----------
The "debug_level" is a mask that selects different types of messages, e.g.,
those related to initialization, method execution, informational messages, etc.
To build debug_level, look at the level specified in an ACPI_DEBUG_PRINT()
statement.
The ACPI interpreter uses several different levels, but the Linux
ACPI core and ACPI drivers generally only use ACPI_LV_INFO.
You can set the debug_level mask at boot-time using the acpi.debug_level
command line argument, and you can change it after boot by writing values
to /sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_level.
The possible levels are defined in include/acpi/acoutput.h. Reading
/sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_level shows the supported mask values,
currently these:
ACPI_LV_INIT 0x00000001
ACPI_LV_DEBUG_OBJECT 0x00000002
ACPI_LV_INFO 0x00000004
ACPI_LV_INIT_NAMES 0x00000020
ACPI_LV_PARSE 0x00000040
ACPI_LV_LOAD 0x00000080
ACPI_LV_DISPATCH 0x00000100
ACPI_LV_EXEC 0x00000200
ACPI_LV_NAMES 0x00000400

ACPI_LV_FUNCTIONS 0x00200000
ACPI_LV_OPTIMIZATIONS 0x00400000

ACPI_LV_IO 0x04000000
ACPI_LV_INTERRUPTS 0x08000000
ACPI_LV_AML_DISASSEMBLE 0x10000000
ACPI_LV_VERBOSE_INFO 0x20000000
ACPI_LV_FULL_TABLES 0x40000000
ACPI_LV_EVENTS 0x80000000
Examples
--------
For example, drivers/acpi/bus.c contains this:
#define _COMPONENT ACPI_BUS_COMPONENT
...
ACPI_DEBUG_PRINT((ACPI_DB_INFO, "Device insertion detected\n"));
To turn on this message, set the ACPI_BUS_COMPONENT bit in acpi.debug_layer
and the ACPI_LV_INFO bit in acpi.debug_level. (The ACPI_DEBUG_PRINT
statement uses ACPI_DB_INFO, which is macro based on the ACPI_LV_INFO
definition.)
Enable all AML "Debug" output (stores to the Debug object while interpreting
AML) during boot:
acpi.debug_layer=0xffffffff acpi.debug_level=0x2
Enable PCI and PCI interrupt routing debug messages:
acpi.debug_layer=0x400000 acpi.debug_level=0x4
Enable all ACPI hardware-related messages:
acpi.debug_layer=0x2 acpi.debug_level=0xffffffff
Enable all ACPI_DB_INFO messages after boot:
# echo 0x4 > /sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_level
Show all valid component values:
# cat /sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_layer

Overview
--------
This driver implements the support for Linux of Silicon Labs (Silabs)
C2 Interface used for in-system programming of micro controllers.
By using this driver you can reprogram the in-system flash without EC2
or EC3 debug adapter. This solution is also useful in those systems
where the micro controller is connected via special GPIOs pins.
References
----------
The C2 Interface main references are at (http://www.silabs.com)
Silicon Laboratories site], see:
- AN127: FLASH Programming via the C2 Interface at
http://www.silabs.com/public/documents/tpub_doc/anote/Microcontrollers/Small_Form_Factor/en/an127.pdf, and
- C2 Specification at
http://www.silabs.com/public/documents/tpub_doc/spec/Microcontrollers/en/C2spec.pdf,
however it implements a two wire serial communication protocol (bit
banging) designed to enable in-system programming, debugging, and
boundary-scan testing on low pin-count Silicon Labs devices. Currently
this code supports only flash programming but extensions are easy to
add.
Using the driver
----------------
Once the driver is loaded you can use sysfs support to get C2port's
info or read/write in-system flash.
# ls /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/
access flash_block_size flash_erase rev_id
dev_id flash_blocks_num flash_size subsystem/
flash_access flash_data reset uevent
Initially the C2port access is disabled since you hardware may have
such lines multiplexed with other devices so, to get access to the
C2port, you need the command:
# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/access
after that you should read the device ID and revision ID of the
connected micro controller:
# cat /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/dev_id
8
# cat /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/rev_id
1
However, for security reasons, the in-system flash access in not
enabled yet, to do so you need the command:
# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_access
After that you can read the whole flash:
# cat /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_data > image
erase it:
# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_erase
and write it:
# cat image > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_data
after writing you have to reset the device to execute the new code:
# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/reset
