Subject[PATCH v1] platform/chrome: cros_ec_proto: Update version on GET_NEXT_EVENT failure
Some EC based devices (e.g. Fingerpint MCU) can jump to RO part of the
firmware (intentionally or due to device reboot). The RO part doesn't
change during the device lifecycle, so it won't support newer version

Function cros_ec_query_all() is responsible for finding maximum
supported MKBP event version. It's usually called when the device is
running RW part of the firmware, so the command version can be
potentially higher than version supported by the RO.

The problem was fixed by updating maximum supported version when the
device returns EC_RES_INVALID_VERSION (mapped to -ENOPROTOOPT). That way
the kernel will use highest common version supported by RO and RW.

Fixes: 3300fdd630d4 ("platform/chrome: cros_ec: handle MKBP more events flag")
Cc: <> # 5.10+
Signed-off-by: Patryk Duda <>
When Fingerprint MCU is rebooted (e.g. as a part of tests) it jumps to
the RO image and performs RW image signature check. If kernel calls
because it's older than RW and supports up to version 1 of the command.
As a result kernel keeps trying to get MKBP events and effectively
blocks FPMCU from jumping to RW image.

Before patch 3300fdd630d4 the driver called version 1 of the command.
If the device responded with EC_RES_INVALID_VERSION, the driver would
use version 0 of the command.

Best regards,

v0 -> v1
- Dropped `ver_mask` initialization.
