* Rename almost all occurences of LinuxBIOS to coreboot. Stefan Reinauer2008-01-181-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | Due to the automatic nature of this update, I am self-acking. It worked in abuild.

| | | | | | | | | | | Creator: Eric Biederman <ebiederman@lnxi.com> Bump the version number with the switch to arch I need an arch test case so bumped the version number. git-svn-id: svn://svn.coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk@1921 2b7e53f0-3cfb-0310-b3e9-8179ed1497e1
* - Bump the LinuxBIOS major versionEric Biederman2004-10-211-0/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | - Rename chip_config chip_operations throughout the tree - Fix Config.lb on most of the Opteron Ports - Fix the amd 8000 chipset support for setting the subsystem vendor and device ids - Add detection of devices that are on the motherboard (i.e. In Config.lb) - Baby step in getting the resource limit handling correct, Ignore fixed resources - Only call enable_childrens_resources on devices we know will have children For some busses like i2c it is non-sense and we don't want it. - Set the resource limits for pnp devices resources. - Improve the resource size detection for pnp devices. - Added a configuration register to amd8111_ide.c so we can enable/disable individual ide channels - Added a header file to hold the prototype of isa_dma_init - Fixed most of the superio chips so the should work now, the via superio pci device is the exception. - The code compiles and runs so it is time for me to go to bed. git-svn-id: svn://svn.coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk@1698 2b7e53f0-3cfb-0310-b3e9-8179ed1497e1
* - Moved hlt() to it's own header.Eric Biederman2004-03-111-0/+11
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | - Reworked pnp superio device support. Now complete superio support is less than 100 lines. - Added support for hard coding resource assignments in Config.lb - Minor bug fixes to romcc - Initial support for catching the x86 processor BIST error codes. I've only seen this trigger once in production during a very suspcious reset but... - added raminit_test to test the code paths in raminit.c for the Opteron - Removed the IORESOURCE_SET bit and added IORESOURCE_ASSIGNED and IORESOURCE_STORED so we can tell what we have really done. - Added generic AGP/IOMMU setting code to x86 - Added an implementation of memmove and removed reserved identifiers from memcpy - Added minimal support for booting on pre b3 stepping K8 cores - Moved the checksum on amd8111 boards because our default location was on top of extended RTC registers - On the Hdama added support for enabling i2c hub so we can get at the temperature sensors. Not that i2c bus was implemented well enough to make that useful. - Redid the Opteron port so we should only need one reset and most of memory initialization is done in cpu_fixup. This is much, much faster. - Attempted to make the VGA IO region assigment work. The code seems to work now... - Redid the error handling in amdk8/raminit.c to distinguish between a bad value and a smbus error, and moved memory clearing out to cpufixup. - Removed CONFIG_KEYBOARD as it was useless. See pc87360/superio.c for how to setup a legacy keyboard properly. - Reworked the register values for standard hardware, moving the defintions from chip.h into the headers of the initialization routines. This is much saner and is actually implemented. - Made the hdama port an under clockers BIOS. I debuged so many interesting problems. - On amd8111_lpc added setup of architectural/legacy hardware - Enabled PCI error reporting as much as possible. - Enhanded build_opt_tbl to generate a header of the cmos option locations so that romcc compiled code can query the cmos options. - In romcc gracefully handle function names that degenerate into function pointers - Bumped the version to 1.1.6 as we are getting closer to 2.0 TODO finish optimizing the HT links of non dual boards TODO make all Opteron board work again TODO convert all superio devices to use the new helpers TODO convert the via/epia to freebios2 conventions TODO cpu fixup/setup by cpu type git-svn-id: svn://svn.coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk@1390 2b7e53f0-3cfb-0310-b3e9-8179ed1497e1
* - O2, enums, and switch statements work in romccEric Biederman2003-10-111-0/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | - Support for compiling romcc on non x86 platforms - new romc options -msse and -mmmx for specifying extra registers to use - Bug fixes to device the device disable/enable framework and an amd8111 implementation - Move the link specification to the chip specification instead of the path - Allow specifying devices with internal bridges. - Initial via epia support - Opteron errata fixes git-svn-id: svn://svn.coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk@1200 2b7e53f0-3cfb-0310-b3e9-8179ed1497e1
* - 1.1.4Eric Biederman2003-09-021-0/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Major restructuring of hypertransport handling. Major rewerite of superio/NSC/pc87360 as a proof of concept for handling superio resources dynamically Updates to hard_reset handling when resetting because of the need to change hypertransport link speeds and widths. (a) No longer assume the boot is good just because we get to a hard reset point. (b) Set a flag to indicate that the BIOS triggered the reset so we don't decrement the boot counter. Updates to arima/hdama mptable so it tracks the new bus numbers git-svn-id: svn://svn.coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk@1097 2b7e53f0-3cfb-0310-b3e9-8179ed1497e1

* - Add back in the hard reset code from the freebios1 tree.Eric Biederman2003-09-011-0/+4
