How to use the Linux kernel mmc_test driver to test the eMMC on an XO-1.75 or XO-4.

  • boot Tiny Core Linux,
  • mount the kernel debug filesystem,
mount -t debugfs debugfs /mnt
  • unbind the eMMC device from the mmcblk driver,
echo mmc1:0001 > /sys/bus/mmc/drivers/mmcblk/unbind
  • bind the eMMC device to the mmc_test driver,
echo mmc1:0001 > /sys/bus/mmc/drivers/mmc_test/bind
  • verify the testlist and test nodes appear in debugfs,
cd /mnt/mmc1/mmc1:0001
ls
  • run the tests (Warning: destroys data),
cd /mnt/mmc1/mmc1:0001
for x in $(seq 45); do echo $x > test; done
