Move almost all system include files to a logical sub-directory
under ./include. The only remaining system include directories
not under ./include are specific to the platform. Move the
corresponding source files to match the include directory
Also remove pm.h as it is no longer used.
bl1/aarch64/early_exceptions.S used to be re-used by BL2, BL3-1 and
BL3-2. There was some early SMC handling code in there that was not
required by the other bootloader stages. Therefore this patch
introduces an even simpler exception vector source file for BL2,
BL3-1 and BL3-2.
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
This patch implements ARM Standard Service as a runtime service and adds
support for call count, UID and revision information SMCs. The existing
PSCI implementation is subsumed by the Standard Service calls and all
PSCI calls are therefore dispatched by the Standard Service to the PSCI
At present, PSCI is the only specification under Standard Service. Thus
call count returns the number of PSCI calls implemented. As this is the
initial implementation, a revision number of 0.1 is returned for call
This change requires all platforms to now specify a list of source files
rather than object files.
New source files should preferably be specified by using the path as
well and we should add this in the future for all files so we can remove
use of vpath. This is desirable because vpath hides issues like the fact
that BL2 currently pulls in a BL1 file bl1/aarch64/early_exceptions.S
and if in the future we added bl2/aarch64/early_exceptions.S then it's
likely only one of the two version would be used for both bootloaders.
This change also removes the 'dump' build target and simply gets
bootloaders to always generate a dump file. At the same time the -x
option is added so the section headers and symbols table are listed.

This patch creates a 'services' directory and moves the PSCI under
it. Other runtime services e.g. the Secure Payload Dispatcher service
will be placed under the same directory in the future.
Also fixes issue ARM-software/tf-issues#12
This patch uses the reworked exception handling support to handle
runtime service requests through SMCs following the SMC calling
convention. This is a giant commit since all the changes are
inter-related. It does the following:
1. Replace the old exception handling mechanism with the new one
2. Enforce that SP_EL0 is used C runtime stacks.
3. Ensures that the cold and warm boot paths use the 'cpu_context'
structure to program an ERET into the next lower EL.
4. Ensures that SP_EL3 always points to the next 'cpu_context'
structure prior to an ERET into the next lower EL
5. Introduces a PSCI SMC handler which completes the use of PSCI as a

This patch adds support for a cpu context management library. This
library will be used to:
1. Share pointers to secure and non-secure state cpu contexts between
runtime services e.g. PSCI and Secure Payload Dispatcher services
2. Set SP_EL3 to a context structure which will be used for
programming an ERET into a lower EL
3. Provide wrapper functions to save and restore EL3 & EL1
state. These functions will in turn use the helper functions in
This patch introduces functions for saving and restoring shared system
registers between secure and non-secure EL1 exception levels, VFP
registers and essential EL3 system register and other state. It also
defines the 'cpu_context' data structure which will used for saving and
restoring execution context for a given security state. These functions
will allow runtime services like PSCI and Secure payload dispatcher to
implement logic for switching between the secure and non-secure states.
The save and restore functions follow AArch64 PCS and only use
caller-saved temporary registers.
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.
Tidy up the spacing of variable definitions within the makefiles to make
them more consistent, easier to read and amend.

Move all explicit platform or architecture specific references
into a new platform.mk file that is defined for each platform.

The GICv3 distributor can have more ports than CPUs are available in
the system. Probe all re-distributors and use the matching affinity
levels as specified by each core and re-distributor to decide which
re-distributor to use with which CPU core.
If a core cannot be matched with a re-distributor, the core panics and
is placed in an endless loop.
GIC setup code which used to be in bl31_plat_setup.c is now in fvp_gic.c
to simplify future changes to other bootloader stages. This patch moves
code from bl31_plat_setup.c to fvp_gic.c, simplifies the include file
list for bl31_plat_setup.c, moves GIC declarations from the bl31.h header
file into the platform.h, and reworks files according to coding style
- This change is split into two separate patches in order to
simplify the history as interpreted by 'git'. The split is
between the move/rename and addition of new files.
- Remove dependency on toolchain C library headers and functions in
order to ensure behavioural compatibility between toolchains.
- Use FreeBSD as reference for C library implementation.
- Do not let GCC use default library include paths.
- Remove unused definitions in modified headers and implementations.
- Move C library files to 'lib/stdlib' and 'include/stdlib'.
- Break std.c functions out into separate files.
- Add instructions for contributing to ARM Trusted Firmware.
- Update copyright text in all files to acknowledge contributors.
