Replace the current out-of-line assembler implementations of
the system register and system instruction operations with
This enables better compiler optimisation and code generation
when accessing system registers.
This patch adds support in the TSP to program the secure physical
generic timer to generate a EL-1 interrupt every half second. It also
adds support for maintaining the timer state across power management
operations. The TSPD ensures that S-EL1 can access the timer by
programming the SCR_EL3.ST bit.
This patch does not actually enable the timer. This will be done in a
subsequent patch once the complete framework for handling S-EL1
interrupts is in place.
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The original intention of exception stack is no longer valid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
There are a small number of non-EL specific helper functions
which are no longer used, and also some unusable helper
functions for non-existant registers.
This change removes all of these functions.
The current code does not always use data and instruction
barriers as required by the architecture and frequently uses
barriers excessively due to their inclusion in all of the
write_*() helper functions.
Barriers should be used explicitly in assembler or C code
when modifying processor state that requires the barriers in
order to enable review of correctness of the code.
This patch removes the barriers from the helper functions and
introduces them as necessary elsewhere in the code.
PORTING NOTE: check any port of Trusted Firmware for use of
system register helper functions for reliance on the previous
barrier behaviour and add explicit barriers as necessary.
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.
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.
