* Introduce stage-specific architecture for corebootFurquan Shaikh2014-05-061-1/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Make all three coreboot stages (bootblock, romstage and ramstage) aware of the architecture specific to that stage i.e. we will have CONFIG_ARCH variables for each of the three stages. This allows us to have an SOC with any combination of architectures and thus every stage can be made to run on a completely different architecture independent of others. Thus, bootblock can have an x86 arch whereas romstage and ramstage can have arm32 and arm64 arch respectively. These stage specific CONFIG_ARCH_ variables enable us to select the proper set of toolchain and compiler flags for every stage. These options can be considered as either arch or modes eg: x86 running in different modes or ARM having different arch types (v4, v7, v8). We have got rid of the original CONFIG_ARCH option completely as every stage can have any architecture of its own. Thus, almost all the components of coreboot are identified as being part of one of the three stages (bootblock, romstage or ramstage). The components which cannot be classified as such e.g. smm, rmodules can have their own compiler toolset which is for now set to *_i386. Hence, all special classes are treated in a similar way and the compiler toolset is defined using create_class_compiler defined in Makefile. In order to meet these requirements, changes have been made to CC, LD, OBJCOPY and family to add CC_bootblock, CC_romstage, CC_ramstage and similarly others. Additionally, CC_x86_32 and CC_armv7 handle all the special classes. All the toolsets are defined using create_class_compiler. Few additional macros have been introduced to identify the class to be used at various points, e.g.: CC_$(class) derives the $(class) part from the name of the stage being compiled. We have also got rid of COREBOOT_COMPILER, COREBOOT_ASSEMBLER and COREBOOT_LINKER as they do not make any sense for coreboot as a whole. All these attributes are associated with each of the stages.

* Move ARCH_* from board/Kconfig to cpu or soc Kconfig.Furquan Shaikh2014-05-031-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | CONFIG_ARCH is a property of the cpu or soc rather than a property of the board. Hence, move ARCH_* from every single board to respective cpu or soc Kconfigs. Also update abuild to ignore ARCH_ from mainboards.

* console: Drop EARLY_CONSOLE optionKyösti Mälkki2014-04-301-1/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | We have means to easily disable a specific console in romstage if necessary, so this global option makes little sense. The option was initially introduced as a work-around for build issues around CACHE_AS_RAM, ROMCC and ARCH_ARMV7 dependencies for UARTs.

* armv7: Add emulation/qemu-armv7 board.Hung-Te Lin2013-02-121-0/+5
To simplify testing ARM implementation, we need a QEMU configuration for ARM. The qemu-armv7 provides serial output, CBFS simulation, and full boot path (bootblock, romstage, ramstage) to verify the boot loader functionality. To run with QEMU: export QEMU_AUDIO_DRV=none qemu-system-arm -M vexpress-a9 -m 1024M -nographic -kernel build/coreboot.rom Verified to boot until ramstage loaded successfully by QEMU v1.0.50.
