    ihex: add support for CS:IP/EIP records

    broonie authored torvalds committed
    ihex firmwares can include a jump address for starting execution.  Add a
    -j option which will cause this to be written into the generated file as a
    record with address zero and data consisting of the address to jump to,
    allowing drivers to make use of this information.
    This format is chosen because it most closely follows the original ihex
    format, though it may make more sense to write a record with length zero
    and the address stored as the address.  The records are not omitted by
    default since our ihex format does not include record type information and
    so including additional records may lead to confusion.

    Revert "fix modules_install via NFS"

    This reverts commit 8b249b6.
    This 'fix' is not necessary; we just need to undo the damage caused
    accidentally by Igor/Mauro in 4b29631

  1. fix modules_install via NFS

    Sam Ravnborg authored
    Rafael reported:
    I get the following error from 'make modules_install' on my test boxes:
      HOSTCC  firmware/ihex2fw
    /home/rafael/src/linux-2.6/firmware/ihex2fw.c:268: fatal error: opening dependency file firmware/.ihex2fw.d: Read-only file system
    compilation terminated.
    make[3]: *** [firmware/ihex2fw] Error 1
    make[2]: *** [_modinst_post] Error 2
    make[1]: *** [sub-make] Error 2
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    where the configuration is that the kernel is compiled on a build box
    with 'make O=<destdir> -j5' and then <destdir> is mounted over NFS read-only by
    each test box (full path to this directory is the same on the build box and on
    the test boxes).  Then, I cd into <destdir>, run 'make modules_install' and get
    the error above.
    The issue turns out to be that we when we install firmware pick
    up the list of firmware blobs from firmware/Makefile.
    And this triggers the Makefile rules to update ihex2fw.
    There were two solutions for this issue:
    1) Move the list of firmware blobs to a separate file
    2) Avoid ihex2fw rebuild by moving it to scripts
    As I seriously beleive that the list of firmware blobs should be
    done in a fundamental different way solution 2) was selected.

    Fix IHEX firmware generation/loading

    Marc Zyngier authored dwmw2 committed
    Fix both the IHEX firmware generation (len field always null, and EOF
    marker a byte too short) and loading (struct ihex_binrec needs to be
    packed to reflect the on-disk structure).

    ihex: Add support for long records to ihex2fw.c

    dwmw2 authored dwmw2 committed
    Some drivers could do with using records like Intel HEX, but with each
    record being larger than 256 bytes. This has been possible in the binary
    representation (struct ihex_binrec) in the kernel since the beginning --
    at least of the the current version of history. But we haven't been able
    to represent that in the .HEX files which get converted to .fw files.
    This adds a '-w' option to ihex2fw to make it interpret the first _two_
    bytes of each line as the record length, instead of only one byte. And
    adds makefile rules for %.H16->%.fw which use that.

    ihex: add ihex2fw tool for converting HEX files into firmware images

    dwmw2 authored dwmw2 committed
    Not the straight conversion to binary which objcopy can do for us, but
    actually representing each record with its original {addr, length},
    because some drivers need that information preserved.
    Fix up 'firmware_install' to be able to build $(hostprogs-y) too.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
