[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 0/6] Clean up x86_64 boot code

Posted by David Woodhouse 17 weeks ago
Some cleanups for the boot path, originally inspired by an attempt to
avoid scribbling on arbitrarily-chosen low memory.

In the no-real-mode case we don't need to bounce through low memory at
all; we can run the 32-bit trampoline in-place in the Xen image.

The variables containing information which is optionally discovered by
the real-mode boot code can be put back in place in the Xen image and we
can dispense with the bootsym() pointer gymnastics in C code which
access them in low memory.

I haven't yet got to reloc(), which I think exists only to ensure that
the various breadcrumbs left all over the place by the Multiboot
bootloader aren't scribbled on when we copy the 16-bit boot trampoline
into low memory. I'd quite like to kill reloc() and pass the original
pointer up to 64-bit code to be handled in C.

That would require finding a *safe* location to put the 16-bit boot
trampoline though, which doesn't already contain anything that the
bootloader created for us.

In fact, isn't there already a chance that head.S will choose a location
for the trampoline which is already part of a module or contains one of
the Multiboot breadcrumbs?

v2: Patch #1 is the first series is already merged.
    Fold in minor fixup from Andrew to what is now patch #1.
    Verbally agree to overcome Jan's objections to patch #1, in Chicago.


David Woodhouse (6):
  x86/boot: Remove gratuitous call back into low-memory code
  x86/boot: Only jump into low trampoline code for real-mode boot
  x86/boot: Split bootsym() into four types of relocations
  x86/boot: Rename trampoline_{start,end} to boot_trampoline_{start,end}
  x86/boot: Copy 16-bit boot variables back up to Xen image
  x86/boot: Do not use trampoline for no-real-mode boot paths
