* avr32: fix out-of-range jump in large kernelsAndreas Bießmann2013-11-201-1/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch fixes following error (for big kernels): ---8<--- arch/avr32/boot/u-boot/head.o: In function `no_tag_table': (.init.text+0x44): relocation truncated to fit: R_AVR32_22H_PCREL against symbol `panic' defined in .text.unlikely section in kernel/built-in.o arch/avr32/kernel/built-in.o: In function `bad_return': (.ex.text+0x236): relocation truncated to fit: R_AVR32_22H_PCREL against symbol `panic' defined in .text.unlikely section in kernel/built-in.o --->8--- It comes up when the kernel increases and 'panic()' is too far away to fit in the +/- 2MiB range. Which in turn issues from the 21-bit displacement in 'br{cond4}' mnemonic which is one of the two ways to do jumps (rjmp has just 10-bit displacement and therefore a way smaller range). This fact was stated before in 8d29b7b9f81d6b83d869ff054e6c189d6da73f1f. One solution to solve this is to add a local storage for the symbol address and just load the $pc with that value.

* avr32: setup crt for early panic()Andreas Bießmann2013-11-201-5/+25
| | | | | | | | | | | | | Before the CRT was (fully) set up in kernel_entry (bss cleared before in _start, but also not before jump to panic() in no_tag_table case). This patch fixes this up to have a fully working CRT when branching to panic() in no_tag_table.

* [PATCH] avr32 architectureHaavard Skinnemoen2006-09-261-0/+60
This adds support for the Atmel AVR32 architecture as well as the AT32AP7000 CPU and the AT32STK1000 development board. AVR32 is a new high-performance 32-bit RISC microprocessor core, designed for cost-sensitive embedded applications, with particular emphasis on low power consumption and high code density. The AVR32 architecture is not binary compatible with earlier 8-bit AVR architectures. The AVR32 architecture, including the instruction set, is described by the AVR32 Architecture Manual, available from http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32000.pdf The Atmel AT32AP7000 is the first CPU implementing the AVR32 architecture. It features a 7-stage pipeline, 16KB instruction and data caches and a full Memory Management Unit. It also comes with a large set of integrated peripherals, many of which are shared with the AT91 ARM-based controllers from Atmel. Full data sheet is available from http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32003.pdf while the CPU core implementation including caches and MMU is documented by the AVR32 AP Technical Reference, available from http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32001.pdf Information about the AT32STK1000 development board can be found at http://www.atmel.com/dyn/products/tools_card.asp?tool_id=3918 including a BSP CD image with an earlier version of this patch, development tools (binaries and source/patches) and a root filesystem image suitable for booting from SD card. Alternatively, there's a preliminary "getting started" guide available at http://avr32linux.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/GettingStarted which provides links to the sources and patches you will need in order to set up a cross-compiling environment for avr32-linux. This patch, as well as the other patches included with the BSP and the toolchain patches, is actively supported by Atmel Corporation.
