Subject[PATCH 4.9 49/88] iio: adc: ti_am335x_adc: fix fifo overrun recovery
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Michael Engl <>

commit e83bb3e6f3efa21f4a9d883a25d0ecd9dfb431e1 upstream.

The tiadc_irq_h(int irq, void *private) function is handling FIFO
overruns by clearing flags, disabling and enabling the ADC to

If the ADC is running in continuous mode a FIFO overrun happens
regularly. If the disabling of the ADC happens concurrently with
a new conversion. It might happen that the enabling of the ADC
is ignored by the hardware. This stops the ADC permanently. No
more interrupts are triggered.

According to the AM335x Reference Manual (SPRUH73H October 2011 -
Revised April 2013 - Chapter 12.4 and 12.5) it is necessary to
check the ADC FSM bits in REG_ADCFSM before enabling the ADC
again. Because the disabling of the ADC is done right after the
current conversion has been finished.

To trigger this bug it is necessary to run the ADC in continuous
mode. The ADC values of all channels need to be read in an endless
loop. The bug appears within the first 6 hours (~5.4 million
handled FIFO overruns). The user space application will hang on
reading new values from the character device.
