* New mechanism to define SRAM/memory map with automatic bounds checkingJulius Werner2015-04-061-66/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch creates a new mechanism to define the static memory layout (primarily in SRAM) for a given board, superseding the brittle mass of Kconfigs that we were using before. The core part is a memlayout.ld file in the mainboard directory (although boards are expected to just include the SoC default in most cases), which is the primary linker script for all stages (though not rmodules for now). It uses preprocessor macros from <memlayout.h> to form a different valid linker script for all stages while looking like a declarative, boilerplate-free map of memory addresses to the programmer. Linker asserts will automatically guarantee that the defined regions cannot overlap. Stages are defined with a maximum size that will be enforced by the linker. The file serves to both define and document the memory layout, so that the documentation cannot go missing or out of date. The mechanism is implemented for all boards in the ARM, ARM64 and MIPS architectures, and should be extended onto all systems using SRAM in the future. The CAR/XIP environment on x86 has very different requirements and the layout is generally not as static, so it will stay like it is and be unaffected by this patch (save for aligning some symbol names for consistency and sharing the new common ramstage linker script include). BUG=None TEST=Booted normally and in recovery mode, checked suspend/resume and the CBMEM console on Falco, Blaze (both normal and vboot2), Pinky and Pit. Compiled Ryu, Storm and Urara, manually compared the disassemblies with ToT and looked for red flags.

* build system: run linker scripts through the preprocessorPatrick Georgi2015-04-061-1/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This allows combining and simplifying linker scripts. This is inspired by the commit listed below, but rewritten to match upstream, and split in smaller pieces to keep intent clear.

* vboot2: separate verstage from bootblockDaisuke Nojiri2015-03-241-0/+67
With CONFIG_RETURN_FROM_VERSTAGE false, the verstage loads the romstage over the bootblock, then exits to the romstage. this is necessary for some SOC (e.g. tegra124) which runs the bootblock on a different architecture. With CONFIG_RETURN_FROM_VERSTAGE true, the verstage returns to the bootblock. Then, the bootblock loads the romstage over the verstage and exits to the romstage. this is probably necessary for some SOC (e.g. rockchip) which does not have SRAM big enough to fit the verstage and the romstage at the same time. BUG=none TEST=Built Blaze with USE=+/-vboot2. Ran faft on Blaze.

The vboot paths will have to change from how they are currently constructed.
