Description Andreas Färber 2019-08-18 22:07:00 UTC
The Google Coral arm64 board uses a Rohm BD71837 PMIC.

While writing a mainline-compatible Device Tree relying on the PMIC's regulators, I have noticed that the underlying i2c bus is missing. This is caused by lack of CONFIG_I2C_IMX.

With the i2c-imx driver module in place, the rohm-bd718x7 mfd driver gets loaded but not its mfd cell drivers bd718x7_regulator and clk-bd718x7. The mfd driver appears to reference them by name, not by DT compatible string.

Workaround: /etc/dracut.conf.d/coral_modules.conf:

add_drivers+=" fixed bd718x7-regulator clk-bd718x7 rohm-bd718x7 i2c-imx "
force_drivers+=" bd718x7-regulator clk-bd718x7 "

Config patch to enable I2C_IMX tested and queued for master branch.
