This directory contains the source code for U-Boot, a boot loader for
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
28 29 30 31
Embedded boards based on PowerPC, ARM, MIPS and several other
processors, which can be installed in a boot ROM and used to
initialize and test the hardware or to download and run application
code.

The development of U-Boot is closely related to Linux: some parts of
34 35
the source code originate in the Linux source tree, we have some
header files in common, and special provision has been made to
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49
support booting of Linux images.

Some attention has been paid to make this software easily
configurable and extendable. For instance, all monitor commands are
implemented with the same call interface, so that it's very easy to
add new commands. Also, instead of permanently adding rarely used
code (for instance hardware test utilities) to the monitor, you can
load and run it dynamically.


Status:
=======

In general, all boards for which a configuration option exists in the
50
Makefile have been tested to some extent and can be considered

"working". In fact, many of them are used in production systems.

53
In case of problems see the CHANGELOG and CREDITS files to find out
54 55
who contributed the specific port. The MAINTAINERS file lists board
maintainers.

Software Configuration:
=======================

Configuration is usually done using C preprocessor defines; the
rationale behind that is to avoid dead code whenever possible.

There are two classes of configuration variables:

* Configuration _OPTIONS_:
  These are selectable by the user and have names beginning with
  "CONFIG_".

* Configuration _SETTINGS_:
  These depend on the hardware etc. and should not be meddled with if
  you don't know what you're doing; they have names beginning with
249
  "CONFIG_SYS_".

Later we will add a configuration tool - probably similar to or even
identical to what's used for the Linux kernel. Right now, we have to
do the configuration by hand, which means creating some symbolic
links and editing some configuration files. We use the TQM8xxL boards
as an example here.


Selection of Processor Architecture and Board Type:
---------------------------------------------------

For all supported boards there are ready-to-use default
configurations available; just type "make <board_name>_config".

Example: For a TQM823L module type:

	cd u-boot
	make TQM823L_config

269
For the Cogent platform, you need to specify the CPU type as well;

270 271 272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283 284
e.g. "make cogent_mpc8xx_config". And also configure the cogent
directory according to the instructions in cogent/README.


Configuration Options:
----------------------

Configuration depends on the combination of board and CPU type; all
such information is kept in a configuration file
"include/configs/<board_name>.h".

Example: For a TQM823L module, all configuration settings are in
"include/configs/TQM823L.h".


wdenk's avatar

Many of the options are named exactly as the corresponding Linux
kernel configuration options. The intention is to make it easier to
build a config tool - later.

		bd_info data to be in MHz) the environment variable
		"clocks_in_mhz" can be defined so that U-Boot
		converts clock data to MHZ before passing it to the
		Linux kernel.
		When CONFIG_CLOCKS_IN_MHZ is defined, a definition of
440
		"clocks_in_mhz=1" is automatically included in the
wdenk's avatar

441 442
		default environment.

443 444
		CONFIG_MEMSIZE_IN_BYTES		[relevant for MIPS only]

445
		When transferring memsize parameter to linux, some versions
wdenk's avatar

		expect it to be in bytes, others in MB.
		Define CONFIG_MEMSIZE_IN_BYTES to make it in bytes.

		CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT
450 451

		New kernel versions are expecting firmware settings to be
452 453 454 455 456 457
		passed using flattened device trees (based on open firmware
		concepts).

		CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT

		CONFIG_OF_BOARD_SETUP

		Board code has addition modification that it wants to make
		to the flat device tree before handing it off to the kernel
474

475 476
		CONFIG_OF_BOOT_CPU

477
		This define fills in the correct boot CPU in the boot
478 479
		param header, the default value is zero if undefined.

480 481 482 483 484 485 486 487 488
		CONFIG_OF_IDE_FIXUP

		U-Boot can detect if an IDE device is present or not.
		If not, and this new config option is activated, U-Boot
		removes the ATA node from the DTS before booting Linux,
		so the Linux IDE driver does not probe the device and

		CONFIG_MACH_TYPE	[relevant for ARM only][mandatory]

		This setting is mandatory for all boards that have only one
		machine type and must be used to specify the machine type
		number as it appears in the ARM machine registry
		(see http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/developer/machines/).
		Only boards that have multiple machine types supported
		in a single configuration file and the machine type is
		runtime discoverable, do not have to use this setting.

- vxWorks boot parameters:

		bootvx constructs a valid bootline using the following
		environments variables: bootfile, ipaddr, serverip, hostname.
		It loads the vxWorks image pointed bootfile.

		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_BOOT_DEVICE - The vxworks device name
		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_MAC_PTR - Ethernet 6 byte MA -address
		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_SERVERNAME - Name of the server
		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_BOOT_ADDR - Address of boot parameters

		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_ADD_PARAMS

		Add it at the end of the bootline. E.g "u=username pw=secret"

		Note: If a "bootargs" environment is defined, it will overwride
		the defaults discussed just above.

- Device tree:
		CONFIG_OF_CONTROL
		If this variable is defined, U-Boot will use a device tree
		to configure its devices, instead of relying on statically
		compiled #defines in the board file. This option is
		experimental and only available on a few boards. The device
		tree is available in the global data as gd->fdt_blob.

843 844
		U-Boot needs to get its device tree from somewhere. This can
		be done using one of the two options below:
845 846 847 848 849 850 851

		CONFIG_OF_EMBED
		If this variable is defined, U-Boot will embed a device tree
		binary in its image. This device tree file should be in the
		board directory and called <soc>-<board>.dts. The binary file
		is then picked up in board_init_f() and made available through
		the global data structure as gd->blob.
852

853 854 855 856 857 858 859 860 861 862 863 864
		CONFIG_OF_SEPARATE
		If this variable is defined, U-Boot will build a device tree
		binary. It will be called u-boot.dtb. Architecture-specific
		code will locate it at run-time. Generally this works by:

			cat u-boot.bin u-boot.dtb >image.bin

		and in fact, U-Boot does this for you, creating a file called
		u-boot-dtb.bin which is useful in the common case. You can
		still use the individual files if you need something more
		exotic.

		CPUs, the SIU Watchdog feature is enabled in the SYPCR
		register.  When supported for a specific SoC is
		available, then no further board specific code should
		be needed to use it.

		CONFIG_SPLASH_SCREEN_ALIGN

		If this option is set the splash image can be freely positioned
		on the screen. Environment variable "splashpos" specifies the
		position as "x,y". If a positive number is given it is used as
		number of pixel from left/top. If a negative number is given it
		is used as number of pixel from right/bottom. You can also
		specify 'm' for centering the image.

		Example:
		setenv splashpos m,m
			=> image at center of screen

		setenv splashpos 30,20
			=> image at x = 30 and y = 20

		setenv splashpos -10,m
			=> vertically centered image
			   at x = dspWidth - bmpWidth - 9

- Gzip compressed BMP image support: CONFIG_VIDEO_BMP_GZIP

		If this option is set, additionally to standard BMP
		images, gzipped BMP images can be displayed via the
		splashscreen support or the bmp command.

- Run length encoded BMP image (RLE8) support: CONFIG_VIDEO_BMP_RLE8

		If this option is set, 8-bit RLE compressed BMP images
		can be displayed via the splashscreen support or the
		bmp command.

- Compression support:
		CONFIG_BZIP2

		If this option is set, support for bzip2 compressed
		images is included. If not, only uncompressed and gzip
		compressed images are supported.

1420
		NOTE: the bzip2 algorithm requires a lot of RAM, so
1421
		the malloc area (as defined by CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN) should
1422
		be at least 4MB.

		CONFIG_LZMA

		If this option is set, support for lzma compressed
		images is included.

		Note: The LZMA algorithm adds between 2 and 4KB of code and it
		requires an amount of dynamic memory that is given by the
		formula:

			(1846 + 768 << (lc + lp)) * sizeof(uint16)

		Where lc and lp stand for, respectively, Literal context bits
		and Literal pos bits.

		This value is upper-bounded by 14MB in the worst case. Anyway,
		for a ~4MB large kernel image, we have lc=3 and lp=0 for a
		total amount of (1846 + 768 << (3 + 0)) * 2 = ~41KB... that is
		a very small buffer.

		Use the lzmainfo tool to determinate the lc and lp values and
		then calculate the amount of needed dynamic memory (ensuring
1445
		the appropriate CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN value).

		For such PHY, set this option to the usec delay
		required. (minimum 300usec for LXT971A)

		CONFIG_PHY_CMD_DELAY (ppc4xx)

- BOOTP Recovery Mode:
		CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY

		If you have many targets in a network that try to
		boot using BOOTP, you may want to avoid that all
		systems send out BOOTP requests at precisely the same
		moment (which would happen for instance at recovery
		from a power failure, when all systems will try to
		boot, thus flooding the BOOTP server. Defining
		CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY causes a random delay to be
		inserted before sending out BOOTP requests. The
1542
		following delays are inserted then:

		CONFIG_BOOTP_SERVERIP - TFTP server will be the serverip
		environment variable, not the BOOTP server.
1569 1570 1571 1572 1573 1574 1575 1576

		CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 - If a DHCP client requests the DNS
		serverip from a DHCP server, it is possible that more
		than one DNS serverip is offered to the client.
		If CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 is enabled, the secondary DNS
		serverip will be stored in the additional environment
		variable "dnsip2". The first DNS serverip is always
		stored in the variable "dnsip", when CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS
1577
		is defined.
1578 1579 1580 1581

		CONFIG_BOOTP_SEND_HOSTNAME - Some DHCP servers are capable
		to do a dynamic update of a DNS server. To do this, they
		need the hostname of the DHCP requester.
1582
		If CONFIG_BOOTP_SEND_HOSTNAME is defined, the content
1583 1584
		of the "hostname" environment variable is passed as
		option 12 to the DHCP server.

		CONFIG_BOOTP_DHCP_REQUEST_DELAY

		A 32bit value in microseconds for a delay between
		receiving a "DHCP Offer" and sending the "DHCP Request".
		This fixes a problem with certain DHCP servers that don't
		respond 100% of the time to a "DHCP request". E.g. On an
		AT91RM9200 processor running at 180MHz, this delay needed
		to be *at least* 15,000 usec before a Windows Server 2003
		DHCP server would reply 100% of the time. I recommend at
		least 50,000 usec to be safe. The alternative is to hope
		that one of the retries will be successful but note that
		the DHCP timeout and retry process takes a longer than
		this delay.
