2014-02-20Add exception vector guardsJeenu Viswambharan
This patch adds guards so that an exception vector exceeding 32 instructions will generate a compile-time error. This keeps the exception handlers in check from spilling over. Change-Id: I7aa56dd0071a333664e2814c656d3896032046fe
2014-02-17Setup VBAR_EL3 incrementallyAchin Gupta
This patch ensures that VBAR_EL3 points to the simple stack-less 'early_exceptions' when the C runtime stack is not correctly setup to use the more complex 'runtime_exceptions'. It is initialised to 'runtime_exceptions' once this is done. This patch also moves all exception vectors into a '.vectors' section and modifies linker scripts to place all such sections together. This will minimize space wastage from alignment restrictions. Change-Id: I8c3e596ea3412c8bd582af9e8d622bb1cb2e049d
2014-02-17Fix spilled-over BL1 exception vectorJeenu Viswambharan
The SynchronousExceptionA64 vector has gone beyond the 32-instruction limit for individual exception vector. This patch splits and relocates the exception handler so that it fits into the 32-instruction window. Change-Id: Ic60c4fc3f09a1cb071d63ff0e58353ecaecbb62f
2014-01-20remove empty definition of display_boot_progress()Achin Gupta
This patch replaces the empty definition of display_boot_progress() in bl2_main.c with a weak definition. The former allowed bl2 to use the early_exceptions(). It is possible to do that with a simple weak definition as well. Change-Id: Idb3f425a5e265f3579b638e3d26bd8c9bb78f80d
2014-01-17Change comments in assembler files to help ctagsJeenu Viswambharan
Ctags seem to have a problem with generating tags for assembler symbols when a comment immediately follows an assembly label. This patch inserts a single space character between the label definition and the following comments to help ctags. The patch is generated by the command: git ls-files -- \*.S | xargs sed -i 's/^\([^:]\+\):;/\1: ;/1' Change-Id: If7a3c9d0f51207ea033cc8b8e1b34acaa0926475
2014-01-17Do not trap access to floating point registersHarry Liebel
Traps when accessing architectural features are disabled by clearing bits in CPTR_EL3 during early boot, including accesses to floating point registers. The value of this register was previously undetermined, causing unwanted traps to EL3. Future EL3 code (for example, context save/restore code) may use floating point registers, although they are not used by current code. Also, the '-mgeneral-regs-only' flag is enabled in the GCC settings to prevent generation of code that uses floating point registers. Change-Id: I9a03675f6387bbbee81a6f2c9ccf81150db03747

- Add instructions for contributing to ARM Trusted Firmware. - Update copyright text in all files to acknowledge contributors. Change-Id: I9311aac81b00c6c167d2f8c889aea403b84450e5
2013-12-05Properly initialise the C runtime environmentSandrine Bailleux
This patch makes sure the C runtime environment is properly initialised before executing any C code. - Zero-initialise NOBITS sections (e.g. the bss section). - Relocate BL1 data from ROM to RAM. Change-Id: I0da81b417b2f0d1f7ef667cc5131b1e47e22571f
2013-12-05Various improvements/cleanups on the linker scriptsSandrine Bailleux
- Check at link-time that bootloader images will fit in memory at run time and that they won't overlap each other. - Remove text and rodata orphan sections. - Define new linker symbols to remove the need for platform setup code to know the order of sections. - Reduce the size of the raw binary images by cutting some sections out of the disk image and allocating them at load time, whenever possible. - Rework alignment constraints on sections. - Remove unused linker symbols. - Homogenize linker symbols names across all BLs. - Add some comments in the linker scripts.

2013-11-27Unmask SError and Debug exceptions.Sandrine Bailleux
Any asynchronous exception caused by the firmware should be handled in the firmware itself. For this reason, unmask SError exceptions (and Debug ones as well) on all boot paths. Also route external abort and SError interrupts to EL3, otherwise they will target EL1. Change-Id: I9c191d2d0dcfef85f265641c8460dfbb4d112092
2013-11-27Move generic architectural setup out of blx_plat_arch_setup().Sandrine Bailleux
blx_plat_arch_setup() should only perform platform-specific architectural setup, e.g. enabling the MMU. This patch moves generic architectural setup code out of blx_plat_arch_setup(). Change-Id: I4ccf56b8c4a2fa84909817779a2d97a14aaafab6
