2014-05-23Split platform.h into separate headersDan Handley
Previously, platform.h contained many declarations and definitions used for different purposes. This file has been split so that: * Platform definitions used by common code that must be defined by the platform are now in platform_def.h. The exact include path is exported through $PLAT_INCLUDES in the platform makefile. * Platform definitions specific to the FVP platform are now in /plat/fvp/fvp_def.h. * Platform API declarations specific to the FVP platform are now in /plat/fvp/fvp_private.h. * The remaining platform API declarations that must be ported by each platform are still in platform.h but this file has been moved to /include/plat/common since this can be shared by all platforms.

2014-05-23Make the memory layout more flexibleSandrine Bailleux
Currently the platform code gets to define the base address of each boot loader image. However, the linker scripts couteract this flexibility by enforcing a fixed overall layout of the different images. For example, they require that the BL3-1 image sits below the BL2 image. Choosing BL3-1 and BL2 base addresses in such a way that it violates this constraint makes the build fail at link-time. This patch requires the platform code to now define a limit address for each image. The linker scripts check that the image fits within these bounds so they don't rely anymore on the position of a given image in regard to the others. Fixes ARM-software/tf-issues#163 Change-Id: I8c108646825da19a6a8dfb091b613e1dd4ae133c
2014-03-26Use --gc-sections during linkAndrew Thoelke
All common functions are being built into all binary images, whether or not they are actually used. This change enables the use of -ffunction-sections, -fdata-sections and --gc-sections in the compiler and linker to remove unused code and data from the images.

2014-03-20Specify image entry in linker scriptJeenu Viswambharan
At present, the entry point for each BL image is specified via the Makefiles and provided on the command line to the linker. When using a link script the entry point should rather be specified via the ENTRY() directive in the link script. This patch updates linker scripts of all BL images to specify the entry point using the ENTRY() directive. It also removes the --entry flag passed to the linker through Makefile. Fixes issue ARM-software/tf-issues#66 Change-Id: I1369493ebbacea31885b51185441f6b628cf8da0
2014-02-26Remove duplicate xlat_table descriptionsJeenu Viswambharan
The BL31 and BL2 linker scripts ended up having duplicate descriptions for xlat_tables section. This patch removes those duplicate descriptions. Change-Id: Ibbdda0902c57fca5ea4e91e0baefa6df8f0a9bb1
2014-02-20Factor out translation table setup in ARM FVP portAchin Gupta
This patch factors out the ARM FVP specific code to create MMU translation tables so that it is possible for a boot loader stage to create a different set of tables instead of using the default ones. The default translation tables are created with the assumption that the calling boot loader stage executes out of secure SRAM. This might not be true for the BL3_2 stage in the future. A boot loader stage can define the `fill_xlation_tables()` function as per its requirements. It returns a reference to the level 1 translation table which is used by the common platform code to setup the TTBR_EL3. This patch is a temporary solution before a larger rework of translation table creation logic is introduced. Change-Id: I09a075d5da16822ee32a411a9dbe284718fb4ff6
2014-02-17Add runtime services frameworkAchin Gupta
This patch introduces the framework to enable registration and initialisation of runtime services. PSCI is registered and initialised as a runtime service. Handling of runtime service requests will be implemented in subsequent patches. Change-Id: Id21e7ddc5a33d42b7d6e455b41155fc5441a9547
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
2014-02-17Move translation tables into separate sectionJeenu Viswambharan
This patch moves the translation tables into their own section. This saves space that would otherwise have been lost in padding due to page table alignment constraints. The BL31 and BL32 bases have been consequently adjusted. Change-Id: Ibd65ae8a5ce4c4ea9a71a794c95bbff40dc63e65

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.
