Quark BSP Linux Kernel Patch Issue (1.2.0)



In the quark_linux_v3.14+v1.2.0.tar.gz is a file: upstream.cfg

that explains the upstream source to apply the patches to



name = quark_linux

url = git://

tag = v3.14

sha = 5d559a740483b867d79f8b7a6a94019271fca8f7



Yet looking at the linux-stable tree, this sha commit id does not exist.

The v3.14 tag is actually: 455c6fdbd219161bd09b1165f11699d6d73de11c

in both the stable tree, and in Linus's tree.

I created a branch from this tag and tried to `git am` the patches anyway.

A few of the patches had whitespace issues and would not apply using `git am`, and had to be manually patched, then run `git am --continue` after adding the changed files.

That was until I got to patch 0290: [PATCH 290/366] net: can: slcan: Added XSLCAN version of slcan module

This patch did not apply cleanly, and I'm not familiar with this code.

Is there something I'm missing?

Instead of going the `git am` route, I tried to just use gnu/patch.

I downloaded the tarball of 3.14, and extracted it inside the directories with the Intel BSP tarballs, and did this for loop:

for i in $(ls ../quark_linux_v3.14+v1.2.0/*.patch); do echo ${i}; patch -F3 -l -p1 < ${i} || break; done

The -F3 gets me past an issue with patch 254: [PATCH 254/366] pch_udc: Pass VBUS GPIO from BSP

where hunk # 1 fails to apply to drivers/usb/gadget/Kconfig:



patching file drivers/usb/gadget/Kconfig

Hunk # 1 FAILED at 467.

patching file include/linux/usb/pch_gpio_vbus.h


the -l gets me past the whitespace issues in other patches (the kernel code style uses tabs, not spaces!).

If the patch fails, the loop breaks and I know where it fails. So, as I mentioned in the previous post, here is the patch and the failure:

We will investigate on this case. We will post a reply for you soon.



I noticed you're using the kernel from Can you try to use the Yocto BSP for Quark? We built successfully BSP 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The image built with the Quark BSP also builds a 3.14 kernel.



I'm using the upstream linux-stable v3.14, as that is what the upstream.cfg says is the upstream. Not the yocto version of the linux kernel.

I am making a custom build that does not use yocto, and I expected the patches to apply to the upstream vanilla linux kernel.

In the case that these patches only apply to the yocto version of the linux kernel, then the upstream.cfg should reflect that.


The Yocto BSP is the only image we support. You can see more information here Download Intel® Quark™ BSP
