[HDMI2USB] Port Linux to the lm32 CPU and support HDMI2USB firmware functionality #30
The HDMI2USB gateware currently includes a lm32 soft core. The misoc version has an MMU and should support running a full Linux kernel.
Linux booting on the HDMI2USB gateware.
There is a bunch of extra information in the LiteX Linux Support Random Notes Google Doc.
The HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware embeds a LM32 soft-core for controlling and configuring the hardware. See the diagram below;
This soft-core should be able to run Linux Kernel, which means we would get access to a lot of good things;
Work on this was started by the MilkyMist / M-Labs people.
There is a port of the lm32 to qemu which will help, see timvideos/HDMI2USB-litex-firmware#86
