This started while adding USB MIDI support (and descriptor support is
in this change.) When seeing that I'd have to implement the MIDI class
logic twice, once for atmel-samd and once for nrf, I decided to refactor
the USB stack so its shared across ports. This has led to a number of
changes that remove items from the ports folder and move them into
Furthermore, we had external SPI flash support for nrf pending so I
factored out the connection between the usb stack and the flash API as
well. This PR also includes the QSPI support for nRF.
This saves code space in builds which use link-time optimization.
The optimization drops the untranslated strings and replaces them
with a compressed_string_t struct. It can then be decompressed to
a c string.
Builds without LTO work as well but include both untranslated
strings and compressed strings.
This work could be expanded to include QSTRs and loaded strings if
a compress method is added to C. Its tracked in #531.
1. UART: ported to ASF4. Allow rx-only and tx-only. Add .baudrate r/w property.
2. Make NeoPixel timing deterministic by turning off caches during NeoPixel writes.
3. Incorporate asf4 updates:
a. async USART driver
b. bringing Atmel START configuration closer to what we use
c. Clock initialization order now specified by CIRCUITPY_GCLK_INIT_1ST and _LAST.
4. supervisor/port.c: Move commented-out clock-test pin setting to correct location.
