      metag: Time keeping · a2c5d4ed
      James Hogan authored
      Add time keeping code for metag. Meta hardware threads have 2 timers.
      The background timer (TXTIMER) is used as a free-running time base, and
      the interrupt timer (TXTIMERI) is used for the timer interrupt. Both
      counters traditionally count at approximately 1MHz.

      metag: ptrace · bc3966bf
      James Hogan authored
      The ptrace interface for metag provides access to some core register
      sets using the PTRACE_GETREGSET and PTRACE_SETREGSET operations. The
      details of the internal context structures is abstracted into user API
      structures to both ease use and allow flexibility to change the internal
      context layouts. Copyin and copyout functions for these register sets
      are exposed to allow signal handling code to use them to copy to and
      from the signal context.
      struct user_gp_regs (NT_PRSTATUS) provides access to the core general
      purpose register context.
      struct user_cb_regs (NT_METAG_CBUF) provides access to the TXCATCH*
      registers which contains information abuot a memory fault, unaligned
      access error or watchpoint. This can be modified to alter the way the
      fault is replayed on resume ("catch replay"), or to prevent the replay
      taking place.
      struct user_rp_state (NT_METAG_RPIPE) provides access to the state of
      the Meta read pipeline which can be used to hide memory latencies in
      hand optimised data loops.
      Extended DSP register state, DSP RAM, and hardware breakpoint registers
      aren't yet exposed through ptrace.

      metag: Memory handling · 373cd784
      James Hogan authored
      Meta has instructions for accessing:
       - bytes        - GETB (1 byte)
       - words        - GETW (2 bytes)
       - doublewords  - GETD (4 bytes)
       - longwords    - GETL (8 bytes)
      All accesses must be aligned. Unaligned accesses can be detected and
      made to fault on Meta2, however it isn't possible to fix up unaligned
      writes so we don't bother fixing up reads either.
      This patch adds metag memory handling code including:
       - I/O memory (io.h, ioremap.c): Actually any virtual memory can be
         accessed with these helpers. A part of the non-MMUable address space
         is used for memory mapped I/O. The ioremap() function is implemented
         one to one for non-MMUable addresses.
       - User memory (uaccess.h, usercopy.c): User memory is directly
         accessible from privileged code.
       - Kernel memory (maccess.c): probe_kernel_write() needs to be
         overwridden to use the I/O functions when doing a simple aligned
         write to non-writecombined memory, otherwise the write may be split
         by the generic version.
      Note that due to the fact that a portion of the virtual address space is
      non-MMUable, and therefore always maps directly to the physical address
      space, metag specific I/O functions are made available (metag_in32,
      metag_out32 etc). These cast the address argument to a pointer so that
      they can be used with raw physical addresses. These accessors are only
      to be used for accessing fixed core Meta architecture registers in the
      non-MMU region, and not for any SoC/peripheral registers.

      metag: Memory management · f5df8e26
      James Hogan authored
      Add memory management files for metag.
      Meta's 32bit virtual address space is split into two halves:
       - local (0x08000000-0x7fffffff): traditionally local to a hardware
         thread and incoherent between hardware threads. Each hardware thread
         has it's own local MMU table. On Meta2 the local space can be
         globally coherent (GCOn) if the cache partitions coincide.
       - global (0x88000000-0xffff0000): coherent and traditionally global
         between hardware threads. On Meta2, each hardware thread has it's own
         global MMU table.
      The low 128MiB of each half is non-MMUable and maps directly to the
      physical address space:
       - 0x00010000-0x07ffffff: contains Meta core registers and maps SoC bus
       - 0x80000000-0x87ffffff: contains low latency global core memories
      Linux usually further splits the local virtual address space like this:
       - 0x08000000-0x3fffffff: user mappings
       - 0x40000000-0x7fffffff: kernel mappings

      metag: Cache/TLB handling · 99ef7c2a
      James Hogan authored
      Add cache and TLB handling code for metag, including the required
      callbacks used by MM switches and DMA operations. Caches can be
      partitioned between the hardware threads and the global space, however
      this is usually configured by the bootloader so Linux doesn't make any
      changes to this configuration. TLBs aren't configurable, so only need
      consideration to flush them.
      On Meta1 the L1 cache was VIVT which required a full flush on MM switch.
      Meta2 has a VIPT L1 cache so it doesn't require the full flush on MM
      switch. Meta2 can also have a writeback L2 with hardware prefetch which
      requires some special handling. Support is optional, and the L2 can be
      detected and initialised by Linux.

      metag: Boot · 85d9d7a9
      James Hogan authored
      Add boot code for metag. Due to the multi-threaded nature of Meta it is
      not uncommon for an RTOS or bare metal application to be started on
      other hardware threads by the bootloader. Since there is a single MMU
      switch which affects all threads, the MMU is traditionally configured by
      the bootloader prior to starting Linux. The bootloader passes a
      structure to Linux which among other things contains information about
      memory regions which have been mapped. Linux then assumes control of the
      local heap memory region.
      A kernel arguments string pointer or a flattened device tree pointer can
      be provided in the third argument.

      trace/ring_buffer: handle 64bit aligned structs · 649508f6

      Some 32 bit architectures require 64 bit values to be aligned (for
      example Meta which has 64 bit read/write instructions). These require 8
      byte alignment of event data too, so use
      CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS to decide alignment, and align
      buffer_data_page::data accordingly.

      Add HAVE_64BIT_ALIGNED_ACCESS · c19fa94a
      James Hogan authored
      On 64 bit architectures with no efficient unaligned access, padding and
      explicit alignment must be added in various places to prevent unaligned
      64bit accesses (such as taskstats and trace ring buffer).
      However this also needs to apply to 32 bit architectures with 64 bit
      accesses requiring alignment such as metag.
      This is solved by adding a new Kconfig symbol HAVE_64BIT_ALIGNED_ACCESS
      which defaults to 64BIT && !HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS, and can be
      explicitly selected by METAG and any other relevant architectures. This
      can be used in various places to determine whether 64bit alignment is

      There was a serious problem in samsung-laptop that its platform driver is

          efi: Make 'efi_enabled' a function to query EFI facilities
          samsung-laptop: Disable on EFI hardware
      Unfortunately this problem comes back again if users specify "noefi" option.
      This parameter clears EFI_BOOT and that driver continues to run even if running
      under EFI. Refer to the document, this parameter should clear
      	noefi		[X86] Disable EFI runtime services support.
      - If some or all EFI runtime services don't work, you can try following

      Petr says: "
       I've analysed the bug and I think that xen_iret() cannot cope with
       mangled DS, in this case zeroed out (null selector/descriptor) by either
       xen_failsafe_callback() or RESTORE_REGS because the corresponding LDT
       entry was invalidated by the reproducer. "
      Jan took a look at the preliminary patch and came up a fix that solves
      this problem:
      "This code gets called after all registers other than those handled by
      IRET got already restored, hence a null selector in %ds or a non-null
      one that got loaded from a code or read-only data descriptor would
      cause a kernel mode fault (with the potential of crashing the kernel
      as a whole, if panic_on_oops is set)."
      The way to fix this is to realize that the we can only relay on the
      registers that IRET restores. The two that are guaranteed are the
      %cs and %ss as they are always fixed GDT selectors. Also they are
      inaccessible from user mode - so they cannot be altered. This is
      the approach taken in this patch.
      Another alternative option suggested by Jan would be to relay on
      the subtle realization that using the %ebp or %esp relative references uses
      the %ss segment.  In which case we could switch from using %eax to %ebp and
      would not need the %ss over-rides. That would also require one extra
      instruction to compensate for the one place where the register is used
      as scaled index. However Andrew pointed out that is too subtle and if
      further work was to be done in this code-path it could escape folks attention
      and lead to accidents.
