- Update porting guide to describe where files live and how to get
FreeBSD source code.
- Update change-log to describe relocation and new functions.
Platform setup code has to reserve some memory for storing the
memory layout information. It is populated in early platform setup
blx_get_sec_mem_layout() functions used to return a copy of this
structure. This patch modifies blx_get_sec_mem_layout() functions
so that they now directly return a pointer to their memory layout
structure. It ensures that the memory layout returned by
blx_get_sec_mem_layout() is always up-to-date and also avoids a
useless copy of the meminfo structure.
Also rename blx_get_sec_mem_layout() to blx_plat_sec_mem_layout()
to make it clear those functions are platform specific.
In the previous psci implementation, the psci_afflvl_power_on_finish()
function would run into an error condition if the value of the context
id parameter in the cpu_on and cpu_suspend psci calls was != 0. The
parameter was being restored as the return value of the affinity level
0 finisher function. A non zero context id would be treated as an
error condition. This would prevent successful wake up of the cpu from
a power down state. Also, the contents of the general purpose
registers were not being cleared upon return to the non-secure world
after a cpu power up. This could potentially allow the non-secure
world to view secure data.
This patch ensures that all general purpose registers are set to ~0
prior to the final eret that drops the execution to the non-secure
world. The context id is used to initialize the general purpose
register x0 prior to re-entry into the non-secure world and is no
longer restored as a function return value. A platform helper
(platform_get_stack()) has been introduced to facilitate this change.
