Albert ARIBAUD - May 14, 2013, 9:50 a.m.
Replace all relocate_code routines from ARM start.S files
with a single instance in file arch/arm/lib/relocate.S.
For PXA, this requires moving the dcache unlocking code
from within relocate_code into c_runtime_cpu_setup.

Signed-off-by: Albert ARIBAUD <albert.u.boot@aribaud.net>
---
Changes in v2:
- use ENTRY / ENDPROC macros
- preserve PXA25X dcache unlocking

Shouldn't the "#ifdef CONFIG_CPU_PXA25X" from the original code be kept here?

If you are avoiding the "ldr =" construct below, why do you use it here? You
could "ldr r0, _TEXT_BASE".

Adding _start to a relocate_code-relative _image_copy_end_ofs?!

This is mixing relocate_code-relative offsets with the relocation offset!

Have you seen the end of my notes for relocate.S? After all, keeping for later
your patches moving to compiler-generated symbols seems to complicate things and
to be more error-prone.

(that's unrelated to the PXA25X stuff above, right?)

I don't think deferring the compiler-generated symbols patches
complicates things, as anyway, they would only apply after this
patch (so as to apply only on a single instance of relocate_code) so
there's no way they could simplify things occurring before them.

OTOH, they do simplify the code of relocate_code. That's why I put them
in a separate series dealing with optimizing relocate_code. I'll post
this second series right away, and let people decide whether both
series should be merged in a single one.

_start is defined in a compilation unit, not in the linker file.
References to _start such as the one above are therefore correct before
as well as after relocation.

You're correct. For some reason I did not complete the rewrite here. :(

I'd made the offsets relative to relocate_code in order to avoid
the linker issues with subtracting symbols not defined in the current
compilation unit.

Then I should add =relocate_code to r3, not =_start, and also -- as r9
is not the right offset here -- compute r7 as the delta between the
link-time =_start and the run-time relocate_code (r7 becomes useless
once R10, r2 and r3 are fixed).

I'd run-tested tested each commit but apparently this bug did not
cause any immediately visible issue. This time I'll step-test it.

Correct, that's where r7 kicks in to replace r9.

Again, apologies for missing this.

I badly need a coffee break... Make this "r7 equal to =relocate_code",
simply.

Or "adr r7, relocate_code" for the same result in order to avoid using the
literal pool when useless.

I have not yet looked at your V3, but yes, I'd prefer.
