[PATCH v2 00/10] MIPS: Fix kernel in XKPHYS

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


Hi all,

This series fixes support for loading kernel to XKPHYS space.
It is derived from "MIPS: use virtual addresses from xkphys for MIPS64" [1].

Boot tested on boston and QEMU with loading address set to 0xa800000090000000.
QEMU patch on the way.

For EyeQ5's memory layout, I think you just need to write devicetree memory
node as:

memory@0 {
	device_type = "memory";
	reg = < 0x0 0x08000000 0x0 0x08000000
		0x8 0x08000000 0x0 0x78000000>;

And set kernel load addesss to somewhere in RAM, everything should work.

It makes me a little bit confused that in EyeQ5 enablement patch, you set
load address to:
> +else
> +load-$(CONFIG_MIPS_GENERIC)	+= 0xa800000080100000
> +endif
Where does not have memory aviailable.

I guess you might want to set it to 0xa800000800100000?
Though I would suggest you to set it to 0xa800000808000000, to avoid
collisions with low mem and reserved mem.

Gregory and Vladimir, do let me know if I missed anything.
