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

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.

Versioning:
===========

U-Boot uses a 3 level version number containing a version, a
sub-version, and a patchlevel: "U-Boot-2.34.5" means version "2",
sub-version "34", and patchlevel "4".

The patchlevel is used to indicate certain stages of development
between released versions, i. e. officially released versions of
U-Boot will always have a patchlevel of "0".

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
239
  "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

259
For the Cogent platform, you need to specify the CPU type as well;

260 261 262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270 271 272 273 274
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.

		CONFIG_CLOCKS_IN_MHZ

		U-Boot stores all clock information in Hz
		internally. For binary compatibility with older Linux
		kernels (which expect the clocks passed in the
		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
375
		"clocks_in_mhz=1" is automatically included in the
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
376 377
		default environment.

wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
378 379
		CONFIG_MEMSIZE_IN_BYTES		[relevant for MIPS only]

380
		When transferring memsize parameter to linux, some versions
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
381 382 383
		expect it to be in bytes, others in MB.
		Define CONFIG_MEMSIZE_IN_BYTES to make it in bytes.

384
		CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT
385 386

		New kernel versions are expecting firmware settings to be
387 388 389 390 391 392
		passed using flattened device trees (based on open firmware
		concepts).

		CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT
		 * New libfdt-based support
		 * Adds the "fdt" command
393
		 * The bootm command automatically updates the fdt
394

395 396 397 398
		OF_CPU - The proper name of the cpus node (only required for
			MPC512X and MPC5xxx based boards).
		OF_SOC - The proper name of the soc node (only required for
			MPC512X and MPC5xxx based boards).
399
		OF_TBCLK - The timebase frequency.

		OF_STDOUT_PATH - The path to the console device
401

402 403
		boards with QUICC Engines require OF_QE to set UCC MAC
		addresses
404

405 406 407 408
		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
409

410 411
		CONFIG_OF_BOOT_CPU

412
		This define fills in the correct boot CPU in the boot
413 414
		param header, the default value is zero if undefined.

415 416 417 418 419 420 421 422 423
		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
		crash. This is needed for buggy hardware (uc101) where
		no pull down resistor is connected to the signal IDE5V_DD7.

424 425 426 427 428 429 430 431 432 433 434 435 436 437 438 439 440 441
- 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.

		CONFIG_PL011_CLOCK

		If you have Amba PrimeCell PL011 UARTs, set this variable to
		the clock speed of the UARTs.

		CONFIG_PL01x_PORTS

		specified in "splashimage" is loaded instead. The

		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

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

1169
		NOTE: the bzip2 algorithm requires a lot of RAM, so
1170
		the malloc area (as defined by CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN) should
1171
		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
1194
		the appropriate CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN value).

		CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 - If a DHCP client requests the DNS

		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.
