[Xen-devel] [PATCH v3] xen/arm: Add Amlogic Meson SoCs earlyprintk support

Posted by Amit Singh Tomar 1 week ago
This patch adds earlyprintk support for Amlogic Meson SoC based
boards.

It relies on firmware[1] to initialize the UART.

Tested With:
 http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPi_K2

[1]: https://github.com/ARM-software/arm-trusted-firmware/blob/master/drivers/meson/console/aarch64/meson_console.S#L92

Changes since v2:

        * Added the commit message that talks about
          uart initialization.
    
        * Added dummy early_uart_init function.

Changes since v1:

        * Fixed coding style issue.
        * Undone changes in early-printk.txt.

Changes since RFC:

        * Replaced LDRH with LDR, with this there
          is no scattered output on console now.
        * Used tbnz instead of tst and b.ne.
        * Used AML_ prefix against register names.

Do all the firmware existing for this platform initialize the UART?

Hello,

U-boot does also initialize the uart for this platform.
https://github.com/u-boot/u-boot/blob/master/drivers/serial/serial_meson.c#L44

Thanks,

How about replacing "It relies on firmware..." by "ATF and U-boot 
already initialize the UART for us. So no need to do it again."

So the user at least know what has been verified.
