- 1.2.0 - Final
- Feb 17th 2002 Mike Phillips
- Updated for submission to the 2.4.x kernel.
-
-Thanks:
- Terry Murphy from 3Com for tech docs and support,
- Adam D. Ligas for testing the driver.
-
-Note:
- This driver will NOT work with the 3C339 Token Ring cards, you need
-to use the tms380 driver instead.
-
-Options:
-
-The driver accepts three options: ringspeed, pkt_buf_sz and message_level.
-
-These options can be specified differently for each card found.
-
-ringspeed: Has one of three settings 0 (default), 4 or 16. 0 will
-make the card autosense the ringspeed and join at the appropriate speed,
-this will be the default option for most people. 4 or 16 allow you to
-explicitly force the card to operate at a certain speed. The card will fail
-if you try to insert it at the wrong speed. (Although some hubs will allow
-this so be *very* careful). The main purpose for explicitly setting the ring
-speed is for when the card is first on the ring. In autosense mode, if the card
-cannot detect any active monitors on the ring it will open at the same speed as
-its last opening. This can be hazardous if this speed does not match the speed
-you want the ring to operate at.
-
-pkt_buf_sz: This is this initial receive buffer allocation size. This will
-default to 4096 if no value is entered. You may increase performance of the
-driver by setting this to a value larger than the network packet size, although
-the driver now re-sizes buffers based on MTU settings as well.
-
-message_level: Controls level of messages created by the driver. Defaults to 0:
-which only displays start-up and critical messages. Presently any non-zero
-value will display all soft messages as well. NB This does not turn
-debugging messages on, that must be done by modified the source code.
-
-Variable MTU size:
-
-The driver can handle a MTU size up to either 4500 or 18000 depending upon
-ring speed. The driver also changes the size of the receive buffers as part
-of the mtu re-sizing, so if you set mtu = 18000, you will need to be able
-to allocate 16 * (sk_buff with 18000 buffer size) call it 18500 bytes per ring
-position = 296,000 bytes of memory space, plus of course anything
-necessary for the tx sk_buff's. Remember this is per card, so if you are
-building routers, gateway's etc, you could start to use a lot of memory
-real fast.

-We are going to provide intermediate layer implementing IEEE 802.15.4 MAC
-in software. This is currently WIP.
+The MAC is the middle layer in the IEEE 802.15.4 Linux stack. This moment it
+provides interface for drivers registration and management of slave interfaces.
+
+NOTE: Currently the only monitor device type is supported - it's IEEE 802.15.4
+stack interface for network sniffers (e.g. WireShark).
+
+This layer is going to be extended soon.
See header include/net/mac802154.h and several drivers in drivers/ieee802154/.
+
+Device drivers API
+==================
+
+The include/net/mac802154.h defines following functions:
+ - struct ieee802154_dev *ieee802154_alloc_device
+ (size_t priv_size, struct ieee802154_ops *ops):
+ allocation of IEEE 802.15.4 compatible device
+
+ - void ieee802154_free_device(struct ieee802154_dev *dev):
+ freeing allocated device
+
+ - int ieee802154_register_device(struct ieee802154_dev *dev):
+ register PHY in the system
+
+ - void ieee802154_unregister_device(struct ieee802154_dev *dev):
+ freeing registered PHY
+
+Moreover IEEE 802.15.4 device operations structure should be filled.
+
+Fake drivers
+============
+
+In addition there are two drivers available which simulate real devices with
+HardMAC (fakehard) and SoftMAC (fakelb - IEEE 802.15.4 loopback driver)
+interfaces. This option provides possibility to test and debug stack without
+usage of real hardware.
+
+See sources in drivers/ieee802154 folder for more details.

-IBM PCI Pit/Pit-Phy/Olympic CHIPSET BASED TOKEN RING CARDS README
-
-Release 0.2.0 - Release
- June 8th 1999 Peter De Schrijver & Mike Phillips
-Release 0.9.C - Release
- April 18th 2001 Mike Phillips
-
-Thanks:
-Erik De Cock, Adrian Bridgett and Frank Fiene for their
-patience and testing.
-Donald Champion for the cardbus support
-Kyle Lucke for the dma api changes.
-Jonathon Bitner for hardware support.
-Everybody on linux-tr for their continued support.
-
-Options:
-
-The driver accepts four options: ringspeed, pkt_buf_sz,
-message_level and network_monitor.
-
-These options can be specified differently for each card found.
-
-ringspeed: Has one of three settings 0 (default), 4 or 16. 0 will
-make the card autosense the ringspeed and join at the appropriate speed,
-this will be the default option for most people. 4 or 16 allow you to
-explicitly force the card to operate at a certain speed. The card will fail
-if you try to insert it at the wrong speed. (Although some hubs will allow
-this so be *very* careful). The main purpose for explicitly setting the ring
-speed is for when the card is first on the ring. In autosense mode, if the card
-cannot detect any active monitors on the ring it will not open, so you must
-re-init the card at the appropriate speed. Unfortunately at present the only
-way of doing this is rmmod and insmod which is a bit tough if it is compiled
-in the kernel.
-
-pkt_buf_sz: This is this initial receive buffer allocation size. This will
-default to 4096 if no value is entered. You may increase performance of the
-driver by setting this to a value larger than the network packet size, although
-the driver now re-sizes buffers based on MTU settings as well.
-
-message_level: Controls level of messages created by the driver. Defaults to 0:
-which only displays start-up and critical messages. Presently any non-zero
-value will display all soft messages as well. NB This does not turn
-debugging messages on, that must be done by modified the source code.
-
-network_monitor: Any non-zero value will provide a quasi network monitoring
-mode. All unexpected MAC frames (beaconing etc.) will be received
-by the driver and the source and destination addresses printed.
-Also an entry will be added in /proc/net called olympic_tr%d, where tr%d
-is the registered device name, i.e tr0, tr1, etc. This displays low
-level information about the configuration of the ring and the adapter.
-This feature has been designed for network administrators to assist in
-the diagnosis of network / ring problems. (This used to OLYMPIC_NETWORK_MONITOR,
-but has now changed to allow each adapter to be configured differently and
-to alleviate the necessity to re-compile olympic to turn the option on).
-
-Multi-card:
-
-The driver will detect multiple cards and will work with shared interrupts,
-each card is assigned the next token ring device, i.e. tr0 , tr1, tr2. The
-driver should also happily reside in the system with other drivers. It has
-been tested with ibmtr.c running, and I personally have had one Olicom PCI
-card and two IBM olympic cards (all on the same interrupt), all running
-together.
-
-Variable MTU size:
-
-The driver can handle a MTU size up to either 4500 or 18000 depending upon
-ring speed. The driver also changes the size of the receive buffers as part
-of the mtu re-sizing, so if you set mtu = 18000, you will need to be able
-to allocate 16 * (sk_buff with 18000 buffer size) call it 18500 bytes per ring
-position = 296,000 bytes of memory space, plus of course anything
-necessary for the tx sk_buff's. Remember this is per card, so if you are
-building routers, gateway's etc, you could start to use a lot of memory
-real fast.

-
-The Linux SMC Token Ring driver works with the SMC TokenCard Elite (8115T)
-ISA and SMC TokenCard Elite/A (8115T/A) MCA adapters.
-
-Latest information on this driver can be obtained on the Linux-SNA WWW site.

-
-This driver supports multiple adapters without the need to load multiple copies
-of the driver. You should be able to load up to 7 adapters without any kernel
-modifications, if you are in need of more please contact the maintainer of this

+HCI backend for NFC Core
+
+Author: Eric Lapuyade, Samuel Ortiz
+Contact: eric.lapuyade@intel.com, samuel.ortiz@intel.com
+
+General
+-------
+
+The HCI layer implements much of the ETSI TS 102 622 V10.2.0 specification. It
+enables easy writing of HCI-based NFC drivers. The HCI layer runs as an NFC Core
+backend, implementing an abstract nfc device and translating NFC Core API
+to HCI commands and events.
+
+HCI
+---
+
+HCI registers as an nfc device with NFC Core. Requests coming from userspace are
+routed through netlink sockets to NFC Core and then to HCI. From this point,
+they are translated in a sequence of HCI commands sent to the HCI layer in the
+host controller (the chip). The sending context blocks while waiting for the
+response to arrive.
+HCI events can also be received from the host controller. They will be handled
+and a translation will be forwarded to NFC Core as needed.
+HCI uses 2 execution contexts:
+- one if for executing commands : nfc_hci_msg_tx_work(). Only one command
+can be executing at any given moment.
+- one if for dispatching received events and responses : nfc_hci_msg_rx_work()
+
+HCI Session initialization:
+---------------------------
+
+The Session initialization is an HCI standard which must unfortunately
+support proprietary gates. This is the reason why the driver will pass a list
+of proprietary gates that must be part of the session. HCI will ensure all
+those gates have pipes connected when the hci device is set up.
+
+HCI Gates and Pipes
+-------------------
+
+A gate defines the 'port' where some service can be found. In order to access
+a service, one must create a pipe to that gate and open it. In this
+implementation, pipes are totally hidden. The public API only knows gates.
+This is consistent with the driver need to send commands to proprietary gates
+without knowing the pipe connected to it.
+
+Driver interface
+----------------
+
+A driver would normally register itself with HCI and provide the following
+entry points:
+
+struct nfc_hci_ops {
+ int (*open)(struct nfc_hci_dev *hdev);
+ void (*close)(struct nfc_hci_dev *hdev);
+ int (*xmit)(struct nfc_hci_dev *hdev, struct sk_buff *skb);
+ int (*start_poll)(struct nfc_hci_dev *hdev, u32 protocols);
+ int (*target_from_gate)(struct nfc_hci_dev *hdev, u8 gate,
+ struct nfc_target *target);
+};
+
+open() and close() shall turn the hardware on and off. xmit() shall simply
+write a frame to the chip. start_poll() is an optional entrypoint that shall
+set the hardware in polling mode. This must be implemented only if the hardware
+uses proprietary gates or a mechanism slightly different from the HCI standard.
+target_from_gate() is another optional entrypoint to return the protocols
+corresponding to a proprietary gate.
+
+On the rx path, the driver is responsible to push incoming HCP frames to HCI
+using nfc_hci_recv_frame(). HCI will take care of re-aggregation and handling
+This must be done from a context that can sleep.
+
+SHDLC
+-----
+
+Most chips use shdlc to ensure integrity and delivery ordering of the HCP
+frames between the host controller (the chip) and hosts (entities connected
+to the chip, like the cpu). In order to simplify writing the driver, an shdlc
+layer is available for use by the driver.
+When used, the driver actually registers with shdlc, and shdlc will register
+with HCI. HCI sees shdlc as the driver and thus send its HCP frames
+through shdlc->xmit.
+SHDLC adds a new execution context (nfc_shdlc_sm_work()) to run its state
+machine and handle both its rx and tx path.
+
+Included Drivers
+----------------
+
+An HCI based driver for an NXP PN544, connected through I2C bus, and using
+shdlc is included.
+
+Execution Contexts
+------------------
+
+The execution contexts are the following:
+- IRQ handler (IRQH):
+fast, cannot sleep. stores incoming frames into an shdlc rx queue
+
+- SHDLC State Machine worker (SMW)
+handles shdlc rx & tx queues. Dispatches HCI cmd responses.
+
+- HCI Tx Cmd worker (MSGTXWQ)
+Serialize execution of HCI commands. Complete execution in case of resp timeout.
+
+- HCI Rx worker (MSGRXWQ)
+Dispatches incoming HCI commands or events.
+
+- Syscall context from a userspace call (SYSCALL)
+Any entrypoint in HCI called from NFC Core
+
+Workflow executing an HCI command (using shdlc)
+-----------------------------------------------
+
+Executing an HCI command can easily be performed synchronously using the
+following API:
+
+int nfc_hci_send_cmd (struct nfc_hci_dev *hdev, u8 gate, u8 cmd,
+ const u8 *param, size_t param_len, struct sk_buff **skb)
+
+The API must be invoked from a context that can sleep. Most of the time, this
+will be the syscall context. skb will return the result that was received in
+the response.
+
+Internally, execution is asynchronous. So all this API does is to enqueue the
+HCI command, setup a local wait queue on stack, and wait_event() for completion.
+The wait is not interruptible because it is guaranteed that the command will
+complete after some short timeout anyway.
+
+MSGTXWQ context will then be scheduled and invoke nfc_hci_msg_tx_work().
+This function will dequeue the next pending command and send its HCP fragments
+to the lower layer which happens to be shdlc. It will then start a timer to be
+able to complete the command with a timeout error if no response arrive.
+
+SMW context gets scheduled and invokes nfc_shdlc_sm_work(). This function
+handles shdlc framing in and out. It uses the driver xmit to send frames and
+receives incoming frames in an skb queue filled from the driver IRQ handler.
+SHDLC I(nformation) frames payload are HCP fragments. They are agregated to
+form complete HCI frames, which can be a response, command, or event.
+
+HCI Responses are dispatched immediately from this context to unblock
+waiting command execution. Reponse processing involves invoking the completion
+callback that was provided by nfc_hci_msg_tx_work() when it sent the command.
+The completion callback will then wake the syscall context.
+
+Workflow receiving an HCI event or command
+------------------------------------------
+
+HCI commands or events are not dispatched from SMW context. Instead, they are
+queued to HCI rx_queue and will be dispatched from HCI rx worker
+context (MSGRXWQ). This is done this way to allow a cmd or event handler
+to also execute other commands (for example, handling the
+NFC_HCI_EVT_TARGET_DISCOVERED event from PN544 requires to issue an
+ANY_GET_PARAMETER to the reader A gate to get information on the target
+that was discovered).
+
+Typically, such an event will be propagated to NFC Core from MSGRXWQ context.
