NAME
cy -- Cyclades Cyclom-{4, 8, 16, 32}Y asynchronous comms board serial device driver
SYNOPSIS
cy0 at isa? iomem 0xd4000 irq 12 cy* at pci? dev ? function ?
DESCRIPTION
This driver provides an interface to Cyclades Cyclom-4Y, Cyclom-8Y, Cyclom-16Y, and Cyclom-32Y asynchronous multiport serial boards. These boards are based around Cirrus Logic CD1400 communication controllers. The device minor numbers for this driver are encoded as follows: d c c p p p p p - bits in the minor device number bits meaning ---- ------- ppppp physical serial line (i.e. port) to use: 0-3 on Cyclom-4Y 0-7 on Cyclom-8Y 0-15 on Cyclom-16Y 0-31 on Cyclom-32Y cc card unit number; note this limits the driver to four cards per system d set to use as a dial-out line
FLOW CONTROL
The cy driver makes use of the CD1400's automatic CTS flow control. In addition, the CD1400's automatic input flow control can be used. This requires the kernel configuration option CY_HW_RTS and a special cable that exchanges the RTS and DTR lines.
DIAGNOSTICS
cy%d: port %d: can't allocate tty There is not enough memory to allocate tty data structures. cy%d: can't allocate input buffer There is not enough memory to allocate the data input buffer. Additional debugging output can be enable with the kernel configuration option CY_DEBUG. Diagnostic counters may be enabled with the kernel con- figuration option CY_DEBUG1.
