I've created a patch file that adds BeagleBone userspace SPI support. This has been successfully tested on my BeagleBone with the loopback test spidev_test.c.

With help from:

SPI working on the Beagleboard XM rev C
BeagleBone userspace SPI interface (spidev) patch - I was unable to apply the patch at the beginning of this discussion

Hi Chris, i just pushed your patchs out along with a few more merged from the arago tree.. The builders are working on it now to so "v3.2-psp6" should be out for all users in a day or two. ;) The /dev/spidev* showed up just fine on my a3/dvi bone. Good timing to, this will be the default image used next week for the monthly re-fresh..



Thanks Robert, I've updated and built v3.2-psp6 this morning, and verified /dev/spidev* is present and working. :-)

How will I know when it has been pulled into Angstrom? And how would I go about adding it to my local build of Angrstrom?


For anyone else interested, I have written a blog post about this patch:
