Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5):
DESCRIPTIONThe glxiic driver supports the System Management Bus controller of the Geode LX series CS5536 Companion Device. The Geode LX is a member of the AMD Geode family of integrated x86 system chips.
Although AMD refers to this device as a System Management Bus (SMBus) controller, it is really an I2C controller (it lacks SMBus ALERT# and Alert Response support).
The glxiic driver supports both I2C master and slave mode.
SYSCTL VARIABLEThe glxiic driver supports the following variable as both sysctl(8) and loader(8) tunable:
- This variable controls the I2C bus timeout in milliseconds. The default timeout is 35 milliseconds. A value of zero disables the timeout.
CAVEATThe glxiic driver uses the interrupt line number configured by the board firmware by default. If no interrupt line number has been configured by the board firmware (or to override the interrupt line number configured by board firmware), place the following line in device.hints(5):
The interrupt line number must be between 1 and 15.
HISTORYThe glxiic device driver and manual page first appeared in FreeBSD 9.0.
