Consolidate all BL3-1 CPU context initialization for cold boot, PSCI
and SPDs into two functions:
* The first uses entry_point_info to initialize the relevant
cpu_context for first entry into a lower exception level on a CPU
* The second populates the EL1 and EL2 system registers as needed
from the cpu_context to ensure correct entry into the lower EL
This patch alters the way that BL3-1 determines which exception level
is used when first entering EL1 or EL2 during cold boot - this is now
fully determined by the SPSR value in the entry_point_info for BL3-3,
as set up by the platform code in BL2 (or otherwise provided to BL3-1).
In the situation that EL1 (or svc mode) is selected for a processor
that supports EL2, the context management code will now configure all
essential EL2 register state to ensure correct execution of EL1. This
allows the platform code to run non-secure EL1 payloads directly
without requiring a small EL2 stub or OS loader.
Some platform porting functions were in BL specific header files.
These have been moved to platform.h so that all porting functions
are in the same place. The functions are now grouped by BL.
Obsolete BL headers files have been removed.
Also, the weak declaration of the init_bl2_mem_layout() function
has been moved out the header file and into the source file
(bl_common.c) using the more succinct #pragma syntax. This
mitigates the risk of 2 weak definitions being created and the
wrong one being picked up by the compiler.
Function declarations implicitly have external linkage so do not
need the extern keyword.
The issues addressed in this patch are:
1. Remove meminfo_t from the common interfaces in BL3-x,
expecting that platform code will find a suitable mechanism
to determine the memory extents in these images and provide
it to the BL3-x images.
2. Remove meminfo_t and bl31_plat_params_t from all FVP BL3-x
code as the images use link-time information to determine
meminfo_t is still used by common interface in BL1/BL2 for
This patch is based on spec published at
It rearranges the bl31_args struct into
bl31_params and bl31_plat_params which provide the
information needed for Trusted firmware and platform
specific data via x0 and x1
On the FVP platform BL3-1 params and BL3-1 plat params
and its constituents are stored at the start of TZDRAM.
The information about memory availability and size for
BL3-1, BL3-2 and BL3-3 is moved into platform specific data.
This patch reworks the handover interface from: BL1 to BL2 and
BL2 to BL3-1. It removes the raise_el(), change_el(), drop_el()
and run_image() functions as they catered for code paths that were
BL1 calls bl1_run_bl2() to jump into BL2 instead of doing the same
by calling run_image(). Similarly, BL2 issues the SMC to transfer
execution to BL3-1 through BL1 directly. Only x0 and x1 are used
to pass arguments to BL31. These arguments and parameters for
running BL3-1 are passed through a reference to a
'el_change_info_t' structure. They were being passed value in
general purpose registers earlier.
This patch introduces macros (SPSR_64 and SPSR_32) to
create a SPSR for both aarch32 and aarch64 execution
states. These macros allow the user to set fields
in the SPSR depending upon its format.
The make_spsr() function which did not allow
manipulation of all the fields in the aarch32 SPSR
has been replaced by these new macros.
Reduce the number of header files included from other header
files as much as possible without splitting the files. Use forward
declarations where possible. This allows removal of some unnecessary
"#ifndef __ASSEMBLY__" statements.
Also, review the .c and .S files for which header files really need
including and reorder the #include statements alphabetically.
Add tag names to all unnamed structs in header files. This
allows forward declaration of structs, which is necessary to
reduce header file nesting (to be implemented in a subsequent
Also change the typedef names across the codebase to use the _t
suffix to be more conformant with the Linux coding style. The
coding style actually prefers us not to use typedefs at all but
this is considered a step too far for Trusted Firmware.
Also change the IO framework structs defintions to use typedef'd
structs to be consistent with the rest of the codebase.
Separate out the CASSERT macro out of bl_common.h into its own
header to allow more efficient header inclusion.
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.
