[PATCH v4 00/12] Add Nuvoton NPCM730/NPCM750 SoCs and two BMC machines

Subject: [PATCH v4 00/12] Add Nuvoton NPCM730/NPCM750 SoCs and two BMC machines
Date: Tue, 7 Jul 2020 11:47:18 -0700

I also pushed this and the previous two patchsets to my qemu fork on github.
The branches are named npcm7xx-v[1-4].


This patch series models enough of the Nuvoton NPCM730 and NPCM750 SoCs to boot
an OpenBMC image built for quanta-gsj. This includes device models for:

  - Global Configuration Registers
  - Clock Control
  - Timers
  - Fuses
  - Memory Controller
  - Flash Controller

These modules, along with the existing Cortex A9 CPU cores and built-in
peripherals, are integrated into a NPCM730 or NPCM750 SoC, which in turn form
the foundation for the quanta-gsj and npcm750-evb machines, respectively. The
two SoCs are very similar; the only difference is that NPCM730 is missing some
peripherals that NPCM750 has, and which are not considered essential for
datacenter use (e.g. graphics controllers). For more information, see


Both quanta-gsj and npcm750-evb correspond to real boards supported by OpenBMC.
At the end of the series, qemu can boot an OpenBMC image built for one of these
boards with some minor modifications.

The patches in this series were developed by Google and reviewed by Nuvoton. We
will be maintaining the machine and peripheral support together.

The data sheet for these SoCs is not generally available. Please let me know if
more comments are needed to understand the device behavior.

Changes since v3:

  - License headers are now GPL v2-or-later throughout.
  - Added vmstate throughout (except the memory controller, which doesn't
    really have any state worth saving). Successfully booted a gsj image
    with two stop/savevm/quit/loadvm cycles along the way.
      - JFFS2 really doesn't like it if I let qemu keep running after savevm,
        and then jump back in time with loadvm. I assume this is expected.
  - Fixed an error API violation in npcm7xx_realize, removed pointless error
    check after object_property_set_link().
  - Switched the OTP device to use an embedded array instead of a g_malloc0'd
    one because I couldn't figure out how to set up vmstate for the latter.

Changes since v2:

  - Simplified the MAINTAINERS entry.
  - Added link to OpenPOWER jenkins for gsj BMC images.
  - Reverted the smpboot change, back to byte swapping.
  - Adapted to upstream API changes:
      - sysbus_init_child_obj -> object_initialize_child
      - object_property_set_bool -> qdev_realize / sysbus_realize
      - ssi_create_slave_no_init -> qdev_new
      - qdev_init_nofail -> qdev_realize_and_unref
      - ssi_auto_connect_slaves removed
  - Moved Boot ROM loading from soc to machine init.
  - Plumbed power-on-straps property from GCR to the machine init code so it
    can be properly initialized. Turns out npcm750 memory init doesn't work
    without this. npcm730 is fine either way, though I'm not sure why.
  - Reworked the flash init code so it looks more like aspeed (i.e. the flash
    device gets added even if there's no drive).

Changes since v1 (requested by reviewers):

  - Clarify the source of CLK reset values.
  - Made smpboot a constant byte array, eliinated byte swapping.
  - NPCM7xxState now stores an array of ARMCPUs, not pointers to ARMCPUs.
  - Clarify why EL3 is disabled.
  - Introduce NPCM7XX_NUM_IRQ constant.
  - Set the number of CPUs according to SoC variant, and disallow command line
    overrides (i.e. you can no longer override the number of CPUs with the -smp
    parameter). This is trying to follow the spirit of
  - Switch register operations to DEVICE_LITTLE_ENDIAN throughout.
  - Machine documentation added (new patch).

Changes since v1 to support flash booting:

  - GCR reset value changes to get past memory initialization when booting
    from flash (patches 2 and 5):
      - INTCR2 now indicates that the DDR controller is initialized.
      - INTCR3 is initialized according to DDR memory size. A realize()
        method was implemented to achieve this.
  - Refactor the machine initialization a bit to make it easier to drop in
    machine-specific flash initialization (patch 6).
  - Extend the series with additional patches to enable booting from flash:
      - Boot ROM (through the -bios option).
      - OTP (fuse) controller.
      - Memory Controller stub (just enough to skip memory training).
      - Flash controller.
      - Board-specific flash initialization.
