Only these 2 call sites depends on fixups for my mpc8321 based
board.

"Only these" that you've found so far, for the board you've tried --
is it worth adding another pre-relocation landmine to shrink the image
by 5%?  I don't miss the manual fixups we had to do under the old
relocation scheme.

Please document the specific circumstances in which one would need
to use this (any data-segment pointer before relocation?).

Is a missing LINK_OFF likely to result in a crash, or silent bad
behavior?  Will LINK_OFF be a no-op after relocation?

Yes, that is what I wrote. The previous try had LINK_OFF calls all over the
place just for my board.

-msingle-pic-base does not require LINK_OFF per se. It will shrink the image
significantly for free. It enables impl. of true PIC and if you want to have
that too you need LINK_OFF.

Any ptr needing fixups:
char *sptr = "hi";
Same for static initialized function ptrs too.

Either crash or garbage printed on the port.
LINK_OFF is a NOP after relocation. It will be a NOP
if link address == load address too.

Clarification, the above is for ptrs used before relocation to RAM.

Yes, I was just emphasizing that. :-)

What is "true PIC" versus the rest of what -msingle-pic-base does, and
what are the advantages?

Garbage possibly being empty strings that aren't noticed?

Or possibly bad values changing program flow in nonobvious ways?

"load address" being pre-relocation?  Currently these must be equal
(which doesn't seem particularly burdensome).

Seems like there would be a high risk for a developer of board A to add
new code that affects board B, and needs a manual relocation, but board
A doesn't use this or loads at the link address, so it doesn't show up.
Seems like a maintenance headache.

Being able to load the same image to any address.
msingle-pic-base simple skips the PIC prologue and assumes the R30 is
already setup correctly. I a self contained env. like uboot this
is true for -fpic.
I use that property to copy the GOT to dcache,
relocate it there and point R30 to the GOT in dcache.

Impossible to say, I guess anything can happen.

Yes, but in our case we update the boot in the field and we want to
make that safer by having two uboot areas but we don't want to carry around
two u-boot images.

I think Wolfgang had some other uses in mind too.

yes, it is a risk. One that can be minimized the more uses this function.

How about playing with BATs before entering C code, so that the image
always appears at the same effective address?

In fact, we could probably do something similar when copying to RAM as
well, and not need any sort of link relocation.

Not all systems have BATs.

I was speaking in the context of what he wanted to do with an 83xx board
-- but the concept applies to any hardware with an MMU that isn't too
painful to set up that early.

If someone wants to do this kind of thing on hardware that doesn't
meet that description, that's another matter -- if the the hardware
doesn't provide a nicer bank switching mechanism (e.g. p4080ds lets you
rotate the flash banks' physical addresses, rather than change the
reset vector), or an SRAM that U-Boot (or an SPL) could copy itself to
before C code, etc.

It seems to me that we are applying at the architecture level a 'nice to
have' which may belong at the board level. How many vendors are going to
do a fancy 'two U-Boot images' trickery? Will it be (nearly) every 83xx
board?

I agree with Scott - If you want to do something that fancy, provide
support for it in your board hardware. I don't like the idea of diverging
the core feature-set available at the architecture level if those features
belong more at the SOC or Board level.

Regards,

Graeme

hmm, never thought of that. The extra bonus would be that LINK_OFF should
not be needed either.

After sleeping on it I realize that all direct accesses to the flash
such as getting the env. will need to be adjusted instead.

You could have one small mapping for the U-Boot image, and another
larger unchanging mapping that covers the whole flash.

Played a little with this but it seems like two BATs cannot overlap?

They can't overlap in effective address space.  They can have
overlapping physical addresses (make sure the WIMG bits are the same).

IIRC they can, but the first (lower register numbers) mapping wins.

hmm, now its starting to get a bit messy, I have flash over and under
my boot area. In general it may be hard to match any random layout.

This text from PPC PEM suggests otherwise:

If a BAT entry is not valid for a given access, it does not participate in address translation
for that access. Two BAT entries may not map an overlapping effective address range and
be valid at the same time.
Entries that have complementary settings of V[s] and V[p] may map overlapping effective
address blocks. Complementary settings would be as follows:
BAT entry A: Vs = 1, Vp = 0
BAT entry B: Vs = 0, Vp = 1

I think these are all on Freescale's (Kim Phillips') list.

Best regards,

It shouldn't matter where in flash the boot area is.

E.g. if you have 64 MiB flash, with a 256 KiB boot image possibly
residing at offset zero or 0x3f00000, and the flash physical address
(after boot code is done with BR0/OR0 games) is 0xfc000000.  You could
have a 64 MiB mapping at, say, 0xe0000000 always poing to 0xfc000000,
and a 256 KiB mapping at 0xfff00000 pointing at either 0xfc000000 or
0xfff00000 depending on which you booted from.  If somehow you could
also boot from offset 0x2480000, then have 0xfff00000 point to
0xfe480000.  The mapping at 0xe0000000 is independent and always
points to 64 MiB at 0xfc000000.

outside of the PIC ones, which I believe are still outstanding, I have:

Thu Nov 4 15:45:12 2010 +0100  "mpc83xx: Make it boot again"

 -- which looks like it has comments that haven't been addressed

and:

Tue Nov 23 19:33:43 2010 +0100 "mpc83xx: remove some dead code, saving space"

 -- which I've applied.

Please let me know what else is needed, if anything.

Thanks,

Kim

What comments would that be? There are none.

PS.
    The last version has this fix for the problem in case you are
    looking at an old one.
