Trusted Firmware-A for STM32MP1
===============================
STM32MP1 is a microprocessor designed by STMicroelectronics
based on a dual Arm Cortex-A7.
It is an Armv7-A platform, using dedicated code from TF-A.
Design
------
The STM32MP1 resets in the ROM code of the Cortex-A7.
The primary boot core (core 0) executes the boot sequence while
secondary boot core (core 1) is kept in a holding pen loop.
The ROM code boot sequence loads the TF-A binary image from boot device
to embedded SRAM.
The TF-A image must be properly formatted with a STM32 header structure
for ROM code is able to load this image.
Tool stm32image can be used to prepend this header to the generated TF-A binary.
At compilation step, BL2, BL32 and DTB file are linked together in a single
binary. The stm32image tool is also generated and the header is added to TF-A
binary. This binary file with header is named tf-a-stm32mp157c-ev1.stm32.
It can then be copied in the first partition of the boot device.
