      arm64: Adjust EFI libstub object include logic · ad08fd49
      Steve Capper authored
      Commit f4f75ad5 ("efi: efistub: Convert into static library")
      introduced a static library for EFI stub, libstub.
      The EFI libstub directory is referenced by the kernel build system via
      a obj subdirectory rule in:
      Unfortunately, arm64 also references the EFI libstub via:
      libs-$(CONFIG_EFI_STUB) += drivers/firmware/efi/libstub/
      If we're unlucky, the kernel build system can enter libstub via two
      simultaneous threads resulting in build failures such as:
      fixdep: error opening depfile: drivers/firmware/efi/libstub/.efi-stub-helper.o.d: No such file or directory
      scripts/Makefile.build:257: recipe for target 'drivers/firmware/efi/libstub/efi-stub-helper.o' failed
      make[1]: *** [drivers/firmware/efi/libstub/efi-stub-helper.o] Error 2
      Makefile:939: recipe for target 'drivers/firmware/efi/libstub' failed
      make: *** [drivers/firmware/efi/libstub] Error 2
      make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
      This patch adjusts the arm64 Makefile to reference the compiled library
      explicitly (as is currently done in x86), rather than the directory.

      arm64: log CPU boot modes · 667f3fd3
      Mark Rutland authored
      We currently don't log the boot mode for arm64 as we do for arm, and
      without KVM the user is provided with no indication as to which mode(s)
      CPUs were booted in, which can seriously hinder debugging in some cases.
      Add logging to the boot path once all CPUs are up. Where CPUs are
      mismatched in violation of the boot protocol, WARN and set a taint (as
      we do for CPU other CPU feature mismatches) given that the
      firmware/bootloader is buggy and should be fixed.

      arm64: fix hyp mode mismatch detection · 424a3838
      Mark Rutland authored
      Commit 828e9834 ("arm64: head: create a new function for setting
      the boot_cpu_mode flag") added BOOT_CPU_MODE_EL1, a nonzero value
      replacing uses of zero. However it failed to update __boot_cpu_mode
      A CPU booted at EL2 writes BOOT_CPU_MODE_EL2 to __boot_cpu_mode[0], and
      a CPU booted at EL1 writes BOOT_CPU_MODE_EL1 to __boot_cpu_mode[1].
      Later is_hyp_mode_mismatched() determines there to be a mismatch if
      __boot_cpu_mode[0] != __boot_cpu_mode[1].
      If all CPUs are booted at EL1, __boot_cpu_mode[0] will be set to
      BOOT_CPU_MODE_EL1, but __boot_cpu_mode[1] will retain its initial value
      of zero, and is_hyp_mode_mismatched will erroneously determine that the
      boot modes are mismatched. This hasn't been a problem so far, but later
      patches which will make use of is_hyp_mode_mismatched() expect it to
      work correctly.
      This patch initialises __boot_cpu_mode[1] to BOOT_CPU_MODE_EL1, fixing
      the erroneous mismatch detection when all CPUs are booted at EL1.

      arm64: apply alternatives for !SMP kernels · 137650aa
      Mark Rutland authored
      Currently we only perform alternative patching for kernels built with
      CONFIG_SMP, as we call apply_alternatives_all() in smp.c, which is only
      built for CONFIG_SMP. Thus !SMP kernels may not have necessary
      alternatives patched in.
      This patch ensures that we call apply_alternatives_all() once all CPUs
      are booted, even for !SMP kernels, by having the smp_init_cpus() stub
      call this for !SMP kernels via up_late_init. A new wrapper,
      do_post_cpus_up_work, is added so we can hook other calls here later
      (e.g. boot mode logging).

      arm64: Implement cpu_relax as yield · 1baa82f4
      Peter Crosthwaite authored
      ARM64 has the yield nop hint which has the intended semantics of
      cpu_relax. Implement.
      The immediate application is ARM CPU emulators. An emulator can take
      advantage of the yield hint to de-prioritise an emulated CPU in favor
      of other emulation tasks. QEMU A64 SMP emulation has yield awareness,
      and sees a significant boot time performance increase with this change.

      arch/c6x/include/asm/pgtable.h: define dummy pgprot_writecombine for !MMU · 65b9ab88

      When !MMU, asm-generic will not define default pgprot_writecombine, so c6x
      needs to define it by itself.  The related error:

      ARM: fix typos in smc91x platform data · 04b91701
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      I recently did a rework of the smc91x driver and did some build-testing
      by compiling hundreds of randconfig kernels. Unfortunately, my script
      was wrong and did not actually test the configurations that mattered,
      so I introduced stupid typos in almost every file I touched.
      I fixed my script now, built all configurations that actually matter
      and fixed all the typos, this is the result.
