2013-05-14powerpc/powernv: Fix starting of secondary CPUs on OPALv2 and v3Benjamin Herrenschmidt
The current code fails to handle kexec on OPALv2. This fixes it and adds code to improve the situation on OPALv3 where we can query the CPU status from the firmware and decide what to do based on that. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
2013-05-06powerpc/powerpnv: Properly handle failure starting CPUsBenjamin Herrenschmidt
If OPAL returns an error, propagate it upward rather than spinning seconds waiting for a CPU that will never show up Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
2013-01-03POWERPC: drivers: remove __dev* attributes.Greg Kroah-Hartman
CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option. As a result, the __dev* markings need to be removed. This change removes the use of __devinit, __devexit_p, __devinitdata, __devinitconst, and __devexit from these drivers. Based on patches originally written by Bill Pemberton, but redone by me in order to handle some of the coding style issues better, by hand.

2012-09-05powerpc/powernv: Always go into nap mode when CPU is offlinePaul Mackerras
The CPU hotplug code for the powernv platform currently only puts offline CPUs into nap mode if the powersave_nap variable is set. However, HV-style KVM on this platform requires secondary CPU threads to be offline and in nap mode. Since we know nap mode works just fine on all POWER7 machines, and the only machines that support the powernv platform are POWER7 machines, this changes the code to always put offline CPUs into nap mode, regardless of powersave_nap. Powersave_nap still controls whether or not CPUs go into nap mode when idle, as before.

2011-12-08powerpc/powernv: Fix problems in onlining CPUsPaul Mackerras
At present, on the powernv platform, if you off-line a CPU that was online, and then try to on-line it again, the kernel generates a warning message "OPAL Error -1 starting CPU n". Furthermore, if the CPU is a secondary thread that was used by KVM while it was off-line, the CPU fails to come online. The first problem is fixed by only calling OPAL to start the CPU the first time it is on-lined, as indicated by the cpu_start field of its PACA being zero. The second problem is fixed by restoring the cpu_start field to 1 instead of 0 when using the CPU within KVM.

Add definition of OPAL interfaces along with the wrappers to call into OPAL runtime and the early device-tree parsing hook to locate the OPAL runtime firmware. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>

2011-09-20powerpc: Add skeleton PowerNV platformBenjamin Herrenschmidt
This adds a skeletton for the new Power "Non Virtualized" platform which will be used by machines supporting running without an hypervisor, for example in order to run KVM. These machines will be using a new firmware called OPAL for which the support will be provided by later patches. The PowerNV platform is intended to be also usable under the BML environment used internally for early CPU bringup which is why the code also supports using RTAS instead of OPAL in various places.
