2013-06-20ARM: mcpm: add a simple poke mechanism to the early entry codeNicolas Pitre
This allows to poke a predetermined value into a specific address upon entering the early boot code in bL_head.S. Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <nico@linaro.org>
2013-04-24ARM: mcpm: introduce helpers for platform coherency exit/setupDave Martin
This provides helper methods to coordinate between CPUs coming down and CPUs going up, as well as documentation on the used algorithms, so that cluster teardown and setup operations are not done for a cluster simultaneously. For use in the power_down() implementation: * __mcpm_cpu_going_down(unsigned int cluster, unsigned int cpu) * __mcpm_outbound_enter_critical(unsigned int cluster) * __mcpm_outbound_leave_critical(unsigned int cluster) * __mcpm_cpu_down(unsigned int cluster, unsigned int cpu) The power_up_setup() helper should do platform-specific setup in preparation for turning the CPU on, such as invalidating local caches or entering coherency. It must be assembler for now, since it must run before the MMU can be switched on. It is passed the affinity level for which initialization should be performed. Because the mcpm_sync_struct content is looked-up and modified with the cache enabled or disabled depending on the code path, it is crucial to always ensure proper cache maintenance to update main memory right away. The sync_cache_*() helpers are used to that end. Also, in order to prevent a cached writer from interfering with an adjacent non-cached writer, we ensure each state variable is located to a separate cache line. Thanks to Nicolas Pitre and Achin Gupta for the help with this patch.

2013-04-24ARM: mcpm: introduce the CPU/cluster power APINicolas Pitre
This is the basic API used to handle the powering up/down of individual CPUs in a (multi-)cluster system. The platform specific backend implementation has the responsibility to also handle the cluster level power as well when the first/last CPU in a cluster is brought up/down.

2013-04-24ARM: multi-cluster PM: secondary kernel entry codeNicolas Pitre
CPUs in cluster based systems, such as big.LITTLE, have special needs when entering the kernel due to a hotplug event, or when resuming from a deep sleep mode. This is vectorized so multiple CPUs can enter the kernel in parallel without serialization. The mcpm prefix stands for "multi cluster power management", however this is usable on single cluster systems as well. Only the basic structure is introduced here. This will be extended with later patches. In order not to complexify things more than they currently have to, the planned work to make runtime adjusted MPIDR based indexing and dynamic memory allocation for cluster states is postponed to a later cycle. The MAX_NR_CLUSTERS and MAX_CPUS_PER_CLUSTER static definitions should be sufficient for those systems expected to be available in the near future.
