    Subject[PATCH 5.10 205/530] firmware: qcom_scm: Workaround lack of "is available" call on SC7180
    From: Stephen Boyd <>

    [ Upstream commit 257f2935cbbf14b16912c635fcd8ff43345c953b ]

    Some SC7180 firmwares don't implement the QCOM_SCM_INFO_IS_CALL_AVAIL
    API, so we can't probe the calling convention. We detect the legacy
    calling convention on these firmwares, because the availability call
    always fails and legacy is the fallback. This leads to problems where
    the rmtfs driver fails to probe, because it tries to assign memory with
    a bad calling convention, which then leads to modem failing to load and
    all networking, even wifi, to fail. Ouch!

    Let's force the calling convention to be what it always is on this SoC,
    i.e. arm64. Of course, the calling convention is not the same thing as
    implementing the QCOM_SCM_INFO_IS_CALL_AVAIL API. The absence of the "is
    this call available" API from the firmware means that any call to
    __qcom_scm_is_call_available() fails. This is OK for now though because
    none of the calls that are checked for existence are implemented on
    firmware running on sc7180. If such a call needs to be checked for
    existence in the future, we presume that firmware will implement this
    API and then things will "just work".
