Summary:
========

This directory contains the source code for U-Boot, a boot loader for
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
12 13 14 15
Embedded boards based on PowerPC, ARM, MIPS and several other
processors, which can be installed in a boot ROM and used to
initialize and test the hardware or to download and run application
code.

The development of U-Boot is closely related to Linux: some parts of
18 19
the source code originate in the Linux source tree, we have some
header files in common, and special provision has been made to

20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33
support booting of Linux images.

Some attention has been paid to make this software easily
configurable and extendable. For instance, all monitor commands are
implemented with the same call interface, so that it's very easy to
add new commands. Also, instead of permanently adding rarely used
code (for instance hardware test utilities) to the monitor, you can
load and run it dynamically.


Status:
=======

In general, all boards for which a configuration option exists in the
34
Makefile have been tested to some extent and can be considered

"working". In fact, many of them are used in production systems.

37 38 39 40
In case of problems see the CHANGELOG file to find out who contributed
the specific port. In addition, there are various MAINTAINERS files
scattered throughout the U-Boot source identifying the people or
companies responsible for various boards and subsystems.

Note: As of August, 2010, there is no longer a CHANGELOG file in the
actual U-Boot source tree; however, it can be created dynamically
from the Git log using:

Software Configuration:
=======================

Configuration is usually done using C preprocessor defines; the
rationale behind that is to avoid dead code whenever possible.

There are two classes of configuration variables:

* Configuration _OPTIONS_:
  These are selectable by the user and have names beginning with
  "CONFIG_".

* Configuration _SETTINGS_:
  These depend on the hardware etc. and should not be meddled with if
  you don't know what you're doing; they have names beginning with
186
  "CONFIG_SYS_".

188 189 190 191 192
Previously, all configuration was done by hand, which involved creating
symbolic links and editing configuration files manually. More recently,
U-Boot has added the Kbuild infrastructure used by the Linux kernel,
allowing you to use the "make menuconfig" command to configure your
build.

For all supported boards there are ready-to-use default
199
configurations available; just type "make <board_name>_defconfig".

Sandbox Environment:
--------------------

U-Boot can be built natively to run on a Linux host using the 'sandbox'
board. This allows feature development which is not board- or architecture-
specific to be undertaken on a native platform. The sandbox is also used to
run some of U-Boot's tests.

218
See board/sandbox/README.sandbox for more details.
219 220


221 222 223 224
Board Initialisation Flow:
--------------------------

This is the intended start-up flow for boards. This should apply for both
225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238 239 240
SPL and U-Boot proper (i.e. they both follow the same rules).

Note: "SPL" stands for "Secondary Program Loader," which is explained in
more detail later in this file.

At present, SPL mostly uses a separate code path, but the function names
and roles of each function are the same. Some boards or architectures
may not conform to this.  At least most ARM boards which use
CONFIG_SPL_FRAMEWORK conform to this.

Execution typically starts with an architecture-specific (and possibly
CPU-specific) start.S file, such as:

	- arch/arm/cpu/armv7/start.S
	- arch/powerpc/cpu/mpc83xx/start.S
	- arch/mips/cpu/start.S
241

242 243
and so on. From there, three functions are called; the purpose and
limitations of each of these functions are described below.
244 245 246 247 248 249 250 251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270 271 272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283 284 285 286 287 288 289 290 291 292 293 294 295 296 297 298 299 300 301

lowlevel_init():
	- purpose: essential init to permit execution to reach board_init_f()
	- no global_data or BSS
	- there is no stack (ARMv7 may have one but it will soon be removed)
	- must not set up SDRAM or use console
	- must only do the bare minimum to allow execution to continue to
		board_init_f()
	- this is almost never needed
	- return normally from this function

board_init_f():
	- purpose: set up the machine ready for running board_init_r():
		i.e. SDRAM and serial UART
	- global_data is available
	- stack is in SRAM
	- BSS is not available, so you cannot use global/static variables,
		only stack variables and global_data

	Non-SPL-specific notes:
	- dram_init() is called to set up DRAM. If already done in SPL this
		can do nothing

	SPL-specific notes:
	- you can override the entire board_init_f() function with your own
		version as needed.
	- preloader_console_init() can be called here in extremis
	- should set up SDRAM, and anything needed to make the UART work
	- these is no need to clear BSS, it will be done by crt0.S
	- must return normally from this function (don't call board_init_r()
		directly)

Here the BSS is cleared. For SPL, if CONFIG_SPL_STACK_R is defined, then at
this point the stack and global_data are relocated to below
CONFIG_SPL_STACK_R_ADDR. For non-SPL, U-Boot is relocated to run at the top of
memory.

board_init_r():
	- purpose: main execution, common code
	- global_data is available
	- SDRAM is available
	- BSS is available, all static/global variables can be used
	- execution eventually continues to main_loop()

	Non-SPL-specific notes:
	- U-Boot is relocated to the top of memory and is now running from
		there.

	SPL-specific notes:
	- stack is optionally in SDRAM, if CONFIG_SPL_STACK_R is defined and
		CONFIG_SPL_STACK_R_ADDR points into SDRAM
	- preloader_console_init() can be called here - typically this is
		done by defining CONFIG_SPL_BOARD_INIT and then supplying a
		spl_board_init() function containing this call
	- loads U-Boot or (in falcon mode) Linux

Configuration Options:
----------------------

Configuration depends on the combination of board and CPU type; all
such information is kept in a configuration file
"include/configs/<board_name>.h".

Example: For a TQM823L module, all configuration settings are in
"include/configs/TQM823L.h".

Many of the options are named exactly as the corresponding Linux
kernel configuration options. The intention is to make it easier to
build a config tool - later.

369 370 371 372 373
		Define this to measure the actual CPU clock instead
		of relying on the correctness of the configured
		values. Mostly useful for board bringup to make sure
		the PLL is locked at the intended frequency. Note
		that this requires a (stable) reference clock (32 kHz
374
		RTC clock or CONFIG_SYS_8XX_XIN)
375

376 377 378 379 380
		CONFIG_SYS_DELAYED_ICACHE

		Define this option if you want to enable the
		ICache only when Code runs from RAM.

381
- 85xx CPU Options:
382 383 384 385 386 387
		CONFIG_SYS_PPC64

		Specifies that the core is a 64-bit PowerPC implementation (implements
		the "64" category of the Power ISA). This is necessary for ePAPR
		compliance, among other possible reasons.

388 389 390 391 392 393
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_TBCLK_DIV

		Defines the core time base clock divider ratio compared to the
		system clock.  On most PQ3 devices this is 8, on newer QorIQ
		devices it can be 16 or 32.  The ratio varies from SoC to Soc.

394 395 396 397 398
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_PCIE_COMPAT

		Defines the string to utilize when trying to match PCIe device
		tree nodes for the given platform.

399 400 401 402 403 404 405 406 407
		CONFIG_SYS_PPC_E500_DEBUG_TLB

		Enables a temporary TLB entry to be used during boot to work
		around limitations in e500v1 and e500v2 external debugger
		support. This reduces the portions of the boot code where
		breakpoints and single stepping do not work.  The value of this
		symbol should be set to the TLB1 entry to be used for this
		purpose.

		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510

		Enables a workaround for erratum A004510.  If set,
		then CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510_SVR_REV and
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_CORENET_SNOOPVEC_COREONLY must be set.

		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510_SVR_REV
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510_SVR_REV2 (optional)

		Defines one or two SoC revisions (low 8 bits of SVR)
		for which the A004510 workaround should be applied.

		The rest of SVR is either not relevant to the decision
		of whether the erratum is present (e.g. p2040 versus
		p2041) or is implied by the build target, which controls
		whether CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510 is set.

		See Freescale App Note 4493 for more information about
		this erratum.

428 429
		CONFIG_A003399_NOR_WORKAROUND
		Enables a workaround for IFC erratum A003399. It is only
430
		required during NOR boot.
431

432 433
		CONFIG_A008044_WORKAROUND
		Enables a workaround for T1040/T1042 erratum A008044. It is only
434
		required during NAND boot and valid for Rev 1.0 SoC revision
435

436 437 438 439 440
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_CORENET_SNOOPVEC_COREONLY

		This is the value to write into CCSR offset 0x18600
		according to the A004510 workaround.

441 442 443 444
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_DDR_ADDR
		This value denotes start offset of DDR memory which is
		connected exclusively to the DSP cores.

445 446 447 448
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_M2_RAM_ADDR
		This value denotes start offset of M2 memory
		which is directly connected to the DSP core.

449 450 451 452
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_M3_RAM_ADDR
		This value denotes start offset of M3 memory which is directly
		connected to the DSP core.

453 454 455
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_CCSRBAR_DEFAULT
		This value denotes start offset of DSP CCSR space.

456 457 458 459 460
		CONFIG_SYS_FSL_SINGLE_SOURCE_CLK
		Single Source Clock is clocking mode present in some of FSL SoC's.
		In this mode, a single differential clock is used to supply
		clocks to the sysclock, ddrclock and usbclock.

461 462 463 464
		CONFIG_SYS_CPC_REINIT_F
		This CONFIG is defined when the CPC is configured as SRAM at the
		time of U-boot entry and is required to be re-initialized.

465
		CONFIG_DEEP_SLEEP
466
		Indicates this SoC supports deep sleep feature. If deep sleep is
467 468
		supported, core will start to execute uboot when wakes up.

469
- Generic CPU options:
470 471 472 473 474 475
		CONFIG_SYS_GENERIC_GLOBAL_DATA
		Defines global data is initialized in generic board board_init_f().
		If this macro is defined, global data is created and cleared in
		generic board board_init_f(). Without this macro, architecture/board
		should initialize global data before calling board_init_f().

476 477 478 479 480
		CONFIG_SYS_BIG_ENDIAN, CONFIG_SYS_LITTLE_ENDIAN

		Defines the endianess of the CPU. Implementation of those
		values is arch specific.

		"upgrade_available" is used. If "upgrade_available" is
		0, "bootcount" is always 0, if "upgrade_available" is
		1 "bootcount" is incremented in the environment.

		XXX - this list needs to get updated!

1121 1122
- Regular expression support:
		CONFIG_REGEX
1123 1124 1125 1126
		If this variable is defined, U-Boot is linked against
		the SLRE (Super Light Regular Expression) library,
		which adds regex support to some commands, as for
		example "env grep" and "setexpr".
1127

1128 1129 1130 1131 1132 1133 1134 1135
- Device tree:
		CONFIG_OF_CONTROL
		If this variable is defined, U-Boot will use a device tree
		to configure its devices, instead of relying on statically
		compiled #defines in the board file. This option is
		experimental and only available on a few boards. The device
		tree is available in the global data as gd->fdt_blob.

1136 1137
		U-Boot needs to get its device tree from somewhere. This can
		be done using one of the two options below:
1138 1139 1140 1141 1142 1143 1144

		CONFIG_OF_EMBED
		If this variable is defined, U-Boot will embed a device tree
		binary in its image. This device tree file should be in the
		board directory and called <soc>-<board>.dts. The binary file
		is then picked up in board_init_f() and made available through
		the global data structure as gd->blob.
1145

		CONFIG_OF_SEPARATE
		If this variable is defined, U-Boot will build a device tree
		binary. It will be called u-boot.dtb. Architecture-specific
		code will locate it at run-time. Generally this works by:

			cat u-boot.bin u-boot.dtb >image.bin

		and in fact, U-Boot does this for you, creating a file called
		u-boot-dtb.bin which is useful in the common case. You can
		still use the individual files if you need something more
		exotic.

		support for the SoC. There must be support in the SoC
		specific code for a watchdog. For the 8xx and 8260
		CPUs, the SIU Watchdog feature is enabled in the SYPCR
		register.  When supported for a specific SoC is
		available, then no further board specific code should
		be needed to use it.

		CONFIG_HW_WATCHDOG

		SoC, then define this variable and provide board

- I/O tracing:
		When CONFIG_IO_TRACE is selected, U-Boot intercepts all I/O
		accesses and can checksum them or write a list of them out
		to memory. See the 'iotrace' command for details. This is
		useful for testing device drivers since it can confirm that
		the driver behaves the same way before and after a code
		change. Currently this is supported on sandbox and arm. To
		add support for your architecture, add '#include <iotrace.h>'
		to the bottom of arch/<arch>/include/asm/io.h and test.

		Example output from the 'iotrace stats' command is below.
		Note that if the trace buffer is exhausted, the checksum will
		still continue to operate.

			iotrace is enabled
			Start:  10000000	(buffer start address)
			Size:   00010000	(buffer size)
			Offset: 00000120	(current buffer offset)
			Output: 10000120	(start + offset)
			Count:  00000018	(number of trace records)
			CRC32:  9526fb66	(CRC32 of all trace records)
