Edit:

Unnecessary snark aside, I found that there was a commit referencing this exact issue in the kernel two days ago.

As of now I'm compiling from source, and while I had it available, I also disabled the following settings in the kernel menuconfig:

-> Device Drivers -> Character Devices -> TTY_PRINTK 
(TTY driver to output user messages via printk)
and
-> Kernel hacking -> Early printk
(Write kernel log output directly into the VGA buffer or serial port.)

I'll update when finished building and tested.

================================================

Original:

I'm working with a compute module 3, in an embedded system with the official 7 inch display. Latest raspbian, all updates.

I have tried relentlessly to get this error to quit appearing. I had a completely silent boot, with only my (plymouth) splash image displaying, and then my UI starting up (a fullscreen Qt app started directly with startx). It works great, and my UI is up and usable ~9 seconds after powerup.

Then I moved the console to the mini uart, as I needed the beefier PL011 for an RS485 driver, but still wanted debugging access. Afterwards this little guy started popping up on both my display, and the serial console:

[    0.178940] bcm2835-aux-uart 3f215040.serial: could not get clk: -517

What's bugging me is that I have loglevel set to zero, so this should never display. The mini uart console works fine, it just looks really unprofessional with an error on bootup.

It looks like it's something to due with the clock on it? (As I'm pretty sure the mini uart is the auxiliary.) I know that's dependent on the VPU core frequency, but I thought force_turbo=1 kept that stable.

I would greatly appreciate any ideas/suggestions.

  • You may have stated what you TRIED to do, but there is ABSOLUTELY no detail of what you ACTUALLY did. – Milliways Jan 25 '18 at 1:38
  • Sorry, thought it was clear from my configs. Loglevel set to zero. Quiet boot. – user79543 Jan 25 '18 at 1:44
  • The point being, the error shouldn't show if my loglevel is zero. My question is why that's happening. I think I did well enough at providing info, that if you needed more, you DIDN'T HAVE TO SHOUT. You could just ask. – user79543 Jan 25 '18 at 1:47

For anyone else who might need this, it was a driver issue, which was fixed in this commit.

I tested by installing the latest bleeding kernel (that includes this fix) with rpi-update.

As a more stable, long term solution, I modified the driver source in the stable raspberrypi-kernel_1.20171029-1 release, and recompiled. This has solved my issue.
