      Add support for Branch Target Identification · 9fc59639
      Alexei Fedorov authored
      This patch adds the functionality needed for platforms to provide
      Branch Target Identification (BTI) extension, introduced to AArch64
      in Armv8.5-A by adding BTI instruction used to mark valid targets
      for indirect branches. The patch sets new GP bit [50] to the stage 1
      Translation Table Block and Page entries to denote guarded EL3 code
      pages which will cause processor to trap instructions in protected
      pages trying to perform an indirect branch to any instruction other
      than BTI.
      BTI feature is selected by BRANCH_PROTECTION option which supersedes
      the previous ENABLE_PAUTH used for Armv8.3-A Pointer Authentication
      and is disabled by default. Enabling BTI requires compiler support
      and was tested with GCC versions 9.0.0, 9.0.1 and 10.0.0.
      The assembly macros and helpers are modified to accommodate the BTI
      This is an experimental feature.
      Note. The previous ENABLE_PAUTH build option to enable PAuth in EL3
      is now made as an internal flag and BRANCH_PROTECTION flag should be
      used instead to enable Pointer Authentication.
      Note. USE_LIBROM=1 option is currently not supported.

      doc: Set correct syntax highlighting style · 29c02529
      Paul Beesley authored
      Several code blocks do not specify a language for syntax
      highlighting. This results in Sphinx using a default highlighter
      which is Python.
      This patch adds the correct language to each code block that doesn't
      already specify it.

      doc: Add minimal glossary · 8f62ca7b
      Paul Beesley authored
      One of the current issues with the documentation is that terms and
      abbreviations are frequently redefined. For example, we might have
      a sentence like "... the SCP (System Control Processor) will ...".
      These definitions might be repeated several times across pages, or
      even within the same document. Equally, some of these abbreviations
      are missed and are never expanded.
      Sphinx provides a :term: keyword that takes some text and,
      if that text is defined in a glossary document, links to its glossary
      entry. Using this functionality will prevent repeated definitions
      and will make the docs more maintainable by using a single
      definition source.
      The glossary added in this patch was created from a quick scrub of
      the source code - there may be missing entries. The SDEI abbreviation
      was used as an example.
      Note that a global_substitutions file was created. This file contains
      the RST 'replace' statements that convert plain text terms into linked
      terms (by adding the ':term:' keyword to them). An example is:
      .. |TF-A| replace:: :term:`TF-A`
      The 'rst_prolog' variable in conf.py is used to inject this list of
      replacements into each page. Terms must be surrounded with the pipe
      character to be turned into links - this means that we can still
      prevent certain terms from being linked if we don't want them to be.

      Previously the readme.rst file served as the entrypoint for the

      doc: Move documents into subdirectories · 40d553cf
      Paul Beesley authored
      This change creates the following directories under docs/
      in order to provide a grouping for the content:
      - components
      - design
      - getting_started
      - perf
      - process
      In each of these directories an index.rst file is created
      and this serves as an index / landing page for each of the
      groups when the pages are compiled. Proper layout of the
      top-level table of contents relies on this directory/index
      Without this patch it is possible to build the documents
      correctly with Sphinx but the output looks messy because
      there is no overall hierarchy.

      Add compile-time errors for HW_ASSISTED_COHERENCY flag · 076b5f02
      John Tsichritzis authored
      This patch fixes this issue:
      The introduced changes are the following:
      1) Some cores implement cache coherency maintenance operation on the
      hardware level. For those cores, such as - but not only - the DynamIQ
      cores, it is mandatory that TF-A is compiled with the
      HW_ASSISTED_COHERENCY flag. If not, the core behaviour at runtime is
      unpredictable. To prevent this, compile time checks have been added and
      compilation errors are generated, if needed.
      2) To enable this change for FVP, a logical separation has been done for
      the core libraries. A system cannot contain cores of both groups, i.e.
      cores that manage coherency on hardware and cores that don't do it. As
      such, depending on the HW_ASSISTED_COHERENCY flag, FVP includes the
      libraries only of the relevant cores.
      3) The neoverse_e1.S file has been added to the FVP sources.

      build_macros: Add mechanism to prevent bin generation. · 9e4609f1
      Christoph Müllner authored
      On certain platforms it does not make sense to generate
      TF-A binary images. For example a platform could make use of serveral
      memory areas, which are non-continuous and the resulting binary
      therefore would suffer from the padding-bytes.
      Typically these platforms use the ELF image.
      This patch introduces a variable DISABLE_BIN_GENERATION, which
      can be set to '1' in the platform makefile to prevent the binary

      This option can be tuned with the --param=ssp-buffer-size=N option.
