[PATCH V6 0/2] Enable crashdump collection support for IPQ9574

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Crashdump collection is enabled based on the DLOAD bit in the TCSR register.
This bit is set during bootup and clearing during shutdown. During crash,
dload bit is not cleared, due to which uboot starts crashdump collection.

Enable the support for download mode to collect the crashdumps if
system crashes, to debug crashes extensively.

During the bootup, bootloaders initialize the SMEM. However the bootup
after crash, SMEM will not be initialized again. If the memory for the
SMEM is not reserved, linux consumes that region, which leads to the
loss of SMEM data. So, during the next bootup after crash, bootloaders
will hang due to invalid data present in the SMEM region. Due to this,
added the SMEM support along with crashdump collection series.

This patch series adds the support for crashdump collection.

DTS patch depends on the IPQ9574 baseport series
