I have been thinking about that lately. In the end of the day, I want to
remove direct dependencies between musb_core and glue. So what I was
thinking about goes like so:
Glue layer basically has to prepare musb->int_usb, musb->int_tx and
musb->int_rx for musb. Maybe handle some glue specific stuff and so on,
but the IRQ line still belongs to MUSB.
So the idea would be to add something like:
those would default to basic:
if platform ops aren't passed. So, it would look something like:
diff --git a/drivers/usb/musb/musb_core.c b/drivers/usb/musb/musb_core.c
index 72a424d..ba0bcc2 100644

those would make sure to prepare the cached IRQ status registers for
Keep in mind that this is only necessary because on
DaVinci/OMAP-L13x/AM35x devices you guys have decided to make the
wrapper read the IRQ status register from MUSB address space. And
because those are clear-on-read, we're screwed.
Oh well, this is the best I could come up with. Any problems you guys
