2014-05-16Rework BL3-1 unhandled exception handling and reportingSoby Mathew
This patch implements the register reporting when unhandled exceptions are taken in BL3-1. Unhandled exceptions will result in a dump of registers to the console, before halting execution by that CPU. The Crash Stack, previously called the Exception Stack, is used for this activity. This stack is used to preserve the CPU context and runtime stack contents for debugging and analysis. This also introduces the per_cpu_ptr_cache, referenced by tpidr_el3, to provide easy access to some of BL3-1 per-cpu data structures. Initially, this is used to provide a pointer to the Crash stack. panic() now prints the the error file and line number in Debug mode and prints the PC value in release mode. The Exception Stack is renamed to Crash Stack with this patch. The original intention of exception stack is no longer valid since we intend to support several valid exceptions like IRQ and FIQ in the trusted firmware context. This stack is now utilized for dumping and reporting the system state when a crash happens and hence the rename. Fixes ARM-software/tf-issues#79 Improve reporting of unhandled exception Change-Id: I260791dc05536b78547412d147193cdccae7811a

Optimise data cache clean/invalidate operation v2
2014-05-07Optimise data cache clean/invalidate operationAndrew Thoelke
The data cache clean and invalidate operations dcsw_op_all() and dcsw_op_loius() were implemented to invoke a DSB and ISB barrier for every set/way operation. This adds a substantial performance penalty to an already expensive operation. These functions have been reworked to provide an optimised implementation derived from the code in section D3.4 of the ARMv8 ARM. The helper macro setup_dcsw_op_args has been moved and reworked alongside the implementation. Fixes ARM-software/tf-issues#146 Change-Id: Icd5df57816a83f0a842fce935320a369f7465c7f
2014-05-07Access system registers directly in assemblerAndrew Thoelke
Instead of using the system register helper functions to read or write system registers, assembler coded functions should use MRS/MSR instructions. This results in faster and more compact code. This change replaces all usage of the helper functions with direct register accesses. Change-Id: I791d5f11f257010bb3e6a72c6c5ab8779f1982b3
2014-05-06Reduce deep nesting of header filesDan Handley
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. Fixes ARM-software/tf-issues#31 Change-Id: Iec92fb976334c77453e010b60bcf56f3be72bd3e
2014-05-06Always use named structs in header filesDan Handley
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 commit). 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. Change-Id: I722b2c86fc0d92e4da3b15e5cab20373dd26786f
2014-05-06Separate out CASSERT macro into own headerDan Handley
Separate out the CASSERT macro out of bl_common.h into its own header to allow more efficient header inclusion. Change-Id: I291be0b6b8f9879645e839a8f0dd1ec9b3db9639
2014-05-06Move include and source files to logical locationsDan Handley
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 structure. Also remove pm.h as it is no longer used. Change-Id: Ie5ea6368ec5fad459f3e8a802ad129135527f0b3
