gpio / ACPI: Add support for _DSD device properties
With release of ACPI 5.1 and _DSD method we can finally name GPIOs (and other things as well) returned by _CRS. Previously we were only able to use integer index to find the corresponding GPIO, which is pretty error prone if the order changes. With _DSD we can now query GPIOs using name instead of an integer index, like the below example shows: // Bluetooth device with reset and shutdown GPIOs Device (BTH) { Name (_HID, ...) Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate () { GpioIo (Exclusive, PullUp, 0, 0, IoRestrictionInputOnly, "\\_SB.GPO0", 0, ResourceConsumer) {15} GpioIo (Exclusive, PullUp, 0, 0, IoRestrictionInputOnly, "\\_SB.GPO0", 0, ResourceConsumer) {27, 31} }) Name (_DSD, Package () { ToUUID("daffd814-6eba-4d8c-8a91-bc9bbf4aa301"), Package () { Package () {"reset-gpio", Package() {^BTH, 1, 1, 0 }}, Package () {"shutdown-gpio", Package() {^BTH, 0, 0, 0 }}, } }) } The format of the supported GPIO property is: Package () { "name", Package () { ref, index, pin, active_low }} ref - The device that has _CRS containing GpioIo()/GpioInt() resources, typically this is the device itself (BTH in our case). index - Index of the GpioIo()/GpioInt() resource in _CRS starting from zero. pin - Pin in the GpioIo()/GpioInt() resource. Typically this is zero. active_low - If 1 the GPIO is marked as active_low. Since ACPI GpioIo() resource does not have field saying whether it is active low or high, the "active_low" argument can be used here. Setting it to 1 marks the GPIO as active low. In our Bluetooth example the "reset-gpio" refers to the second GpioIo() resource, second pin in that resource with the GPIO number of 31. This patch implements necessary support to gpiolib for extracting GPIOs using _DSD device properties.

+_DSD Device Properties Related to GPIO
+--------------------------------------
+
+With the release of ACPI 5.1 and the _DSD configuration objecte names
+can finally be given to GPIOs (and other things as well) returned by
+_CRS. Previously, we were only able to use an integer index to find
+the corresponding GPIO, which is pretty error prone (it depends on
+the _CRS output ordering, for example).
+
+With _DSD we can now query GPIOs using a name instead of an integer
+index, like the ASL example below shows:
+
+ // Bluetooth device with reset and shutdown GPIOs
+ Device (BTH)
+ {
+ Name (_HID, ...)
+
+ Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
+ {
+ GpioIo (Exclusive, PullUp, 0, 0, IoRestrictionInputOnly,
+ "\\_SB.GPO0", 0, ResourceConsumer) {15}
+ GpioIo (Exclusive, PullUp, 0, 0, IoRestrictionInputOnly,
+ "\\_SB.GPO0", 0, ResourceConsumer) {27, 31}
+ })
+
+ Name (_DSD, Package ()
+ {
+ ToUUID("daffd814-6eba-4d8c-8a91-bc9bbf4aa301"),
+ Package ()
+ {
+ Package () {"reset-gpio", Package() {^BTH, 1, 1, 0 }},
+ Package () {"shutdown-gpio", Package() {^BTH, 0, 0, 0 }},
+ }
+ })
+ }
+
+The format of the supported GPIO property is:
+
+ Package () { "name", Package () { ref, index, pin, active_low }}
+
+ ref - The device that has _CRS containing GpioIo()/GpioInt() resources,
+ typically this is the device itself (BTH in our case).
+ index - Index of the GpioIo()/GpioInt() resource in _CRS starting from zero.
+ pin - Pin in the GpioIo()/GpioInt() resource. Typically this is zero.
+ active_low - If 1 the GPIO is marked as active_low.
+
+Since ACPI GpioIo() resource does not have a field saying whether it is
+active low or high, the "active_low" argument can be used here. Setting
+it to 1 marks the GPIO as active low.
+
+In our Bluetooth example the "reset-gpio" refers to the second GpioIo()
+resource, second pin in that resource with the GPIO number of 31.
