2012-12-07ARM: 7591/1: nommu: Enable the strict alignment (CR_A) bit only if ARCH < v6Armando Visconti1-1/+1
This patch keeps disabled the strict alignment CP15 bit for all armv6 and armv7 processor without the mmu. This behaviour is now same as in the mmu case. Signed-off-by: Armando Visconti <armando.visconti@st.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2012-03-28ARM: move CP15 definitions to separate header fileRussell King1-1/+1
Avoid namespace conflicts with drivers over the CP15 definitions by moving CP15 related prototypes and definitions to a private header file.

2011-07-19ARM: 6999/1: head, zImage: Always Enter the kernel in ARM stateDave Martin1-0/+8
Currently, the documented kernel entry requirements are not explicit about whether the kernel should be entered in ARM or Thumb, leading to an ambiguitity about how to enter Thumb-2 kernels. As a result, the kernel is reliant on the zImage decompressor to enter the kernel proper in the correct instruction set state. This patch changes the boot entry protocol for head.S and Image to be the same as for zImage: in all cases, the kernel is now entered in ARM. Documentation/arm/Booting is updated to reflect this new policy. A different rule will be needed for Cortex-M class CPUs as and when support for those lands in mainline, since these CPUs don't support the ARM instruction set at all: a note is added to the effect that the kernel must be entered in Thumb on such systems.

2011-02-15ARM: Defer lookup of machine_type to setup.cRussell King1-3/+0
Since the debug macros no longer depend on the machine type information, the machine type lookup can be deferred to setup_arch() in setup.c which simplifies the code somewhat. We also move the __error_a functionality into setup.c for displaying a message when a bad machine ID is passed to the kernel via the LL debug code. We also log this into the kernel ring buffer which makes it possible to retrieve the message via a debugger. Original idea from Grant Likely.

2010-10-08ARM: no need for nommu to jump through the hoops that mmu doesRussell King1-4/+1
nommu can jump directly to __mmap_switched without the absolute address branching which the mmuful kernel does. Acked-by: Greg Ungerer <gerg@uclinux.org> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2009-11-23ARM: convert to use __HEAD and HEAD_TEXT macros.Tim Abbott1-1/+1
This has the consequence of changing the section name used for head code from ".text.head" to ".head.text". Since this commit changes all users in the architecture, this change should be harmless. The .text.head output section is eliminated and the head text code is included at the start of the .init output section.

2009-07-24nommu: Do not override the CP15 control reg value returned from initfuncCatalin Marinas1-1/+4
The patch removes the "mrc" instruction in head-nommu.S overriding the r0 register containing the value to be written in the CP15 system control register. Signed-off-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com>
2009-07-24Thumb-2: Implementation of the unified start-up and exceptions codeCatalin Marinas1-4/+7

2008-09-01[ARM] 5227/1: Add the ENDPROC declarations to the .S filesCatalin Marinas1-2/+2
This declaration specifies the "function" type and size for various assembly functions, mainly needed for generating the correct branch instructions in Thumb-2. Signed-off-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2008-08-07[ARM] Eliminate useless includes of asm/mach-types.hRussell King1-1/+0
There are 43 includes of asm/mach-types.h by files that don't reference anything from that file. Remove these unnecessary includes. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2007-05-08[ARM] Ensure head text is always placed at the start of kernelRussell King1-1/+1
Commit 86c0baf123e474b6eb404798926ecf62b426bf3a highlighted that we may end up with the head text placed elsewhere in the kernel image. Introduce a new .text.head section to contain the initial kernel startup code, and always place this section at the beginning of the kernel image.

2006-11-30[ARM] Include asm/elf.h instead of asm/procinfo.hRussell King1-1/+0
These files want to provide/access ELF hwcap information, so should be including asm/elf.h rather than asm/procinfo.h Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2006-09-28[ARM] nommu: confirms the CR_V bit in nommu modeHyok S. Choi1-0/+5
In nommu mode, the exception vector location depends on the platforms. Some of the implementations may have some special exception control forwarding method in their ROM/flash and for some of them has its own re-mapping mechanism by the h/w. This patch introduces a special configuration CONFIG_CPU_HIGH_VECTOR which turns on the CR_V bit in nommu mode. The CR_V bit is turned off by default. This feature depends on CP15 and does not supported by ARM740. Signed-off-by: Hyok S. Choi <hyok.choi@samsung.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2006-09-27[ARM] nommu: manage the CP15 thingsHyok S. Choi1-1/+6
All the current CP15 access codes in ARM arch can be categorized and conditioned by the defines as follows: Related operation Safe condition a. any CP15 access !CPU_CP15 b. alignment trap CPU_CP15_MMU c. D-cache(C-bit) CPU_CP15 d. I-cache CPU_CP15 && !( CPU_ARM610 || CPU_ARM710 || CPU_ARM720 || CPU_ARM740 || CPU_XSCALE || CPU_XSC3 ) e. alternate vector CPU_CP15 && !CPU_ARM740 f. TTB CPU_CP15_MMU g. Domain CPU_CP15_MMU h. FSR/FAR CPU_CP15_MMU For example, alternate vector is supported if and only if "CPU_CP15 && !CPU_ARM740" is satisfied. Signed-off-by: Hyok S.
