[Qemu-riscv] [PATCH v4 00/28] riscv: sifive_u: Improve the emulation fid

From: Bin Meng
Subject: [Qemu-riscv] [PATCH v4 00/28] riscv: sifive_u: Improve the emulation fidelity of sifive_u machine
Date: Sun, 18 Aug 2019 22:11:33 -0700

As of today, the QEMU 'sifive_u' machine is a special target that does
not boot the upstream OpenSBI/U-Boot firmware images built for the real
SiFive HiFive Unleashed board. Hence OpenSBI supports a special platform
"qemu/sifive_u". For U-Boot, the sifive_fu540_defconfig is referenced
in the OpenSBI doc as its payload, but that does not boot at all due
to various issues in current QEMU 'sifive_u' machine codes.

This series aims to improve the emulation fidelity of sifive_u machine,
so that the upstream OpenSBI, U-Boot and kernel images built for the
SiFive HiFive Unleashed board can be used out of the box without any
special hack.

The major changes include:
- Heterogeneous harts creation supported, so that we can create a CPU
  that exactly mirrors the real hardware: 1 E51 + 4 U54.
- Implemented a PRCI model for FU540
- Implemented an OTP model for FU540, primarily used for storing serial
  number of the board
- Fixed GEM support that was seriously broken on sifive_u
- Synced device tree with upstream Linux kernel on sifive_u

OpenSBI v0.4 image built for sifive/fu540 is included as the default
bios image for 'sifive_u' machine.

The series is tested against OpenSBI v0.4 image for sifive/fu540
paltform, U-Boot v2019.10-rc1 image for sifive_fu540_defconfig,
and Linux kernel v5.3-rc3 image with the following patch:

macb: Update compatibility string for SiFive FU540-C000 [1]

OpenSBI + U-Boot, ping/tftpboot with U-Boot MACB driver works well.
Boot Linux 64-bit defconfig image, verified that system console on
the serial 0 and ping host work pretty well.

An OpenSBI patch [2] was sent to drop the special "qemu/sifive_u" platform
support in OpenSBI. The original plan was to get the drop patch applied
after this QEMU series is merged. However after discussion in the OpenSBI
mailing list, it seems the best option for us is to let OpenSBI continue
shipping the special "qemu/sifive_u" platform support to work with QEMU
version <= 4.1 and deprecate the support sometime in the future. A patch
will need to be sent to OpenSBI mailing list to update its document.

v4 is now rebased on Palmer's QEMU RISC-V repo "for-master" branch.
Dropped the following v3 patch that was already done by someone else.
- riscv: sifive_u: Generate an aliases node in the device tree
- riscv: sifive_u: Support loading initramfs

The following v3 patch was dropped too due to a different cluster approach
suggested by Richard Henderson is used in v4:
- riscv: hart: Support heterogeneous harts population

[1]: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11050003/
[2]: http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/opensbi/2019-August/000335.html

Changes in v4:
- remove 2 more "linux,phandle" instances in sifive_u.c and spike.c
  after rebasing on Palmer's QEMU RISC-V tree
- change create_fdt() to return void in sifive_u.c too, after rebasing
  on Palmer's QEMU RISC-V tree
- new patch to remove executable attribute of opensbi images
- prefix all macros/variables/functions with SIFIVE_E/sifive_e
  in the sifive_e_prci driver
- new patch to add a "hartid-base" property to RISC-V hart array
- changed to create clusters for each cpu type
- prefix all macros/variables/functions with SIFIVE_U/sifive_u
  in the sifive_u_prci driver
- prefix all macros/variables/functions with SIFIVE_U/sifive_u
  in the sifive_u_otp driver
- new patch to remove handcrafted clock nodes for UART and ethernet

Changes in v3:
- changed to use macros for management and compute cpu count
- use management cpu count + 1 for the min_cpus
- update IRQ numbers of both UARTs to match hardware as well

Changes in v2:
- keep the PLIC compatible string unchanged as OpenSBI uses that
  for DT fix up
- drop patch "riscv: sifive: Move sifive_mmio_emulate() to a common place"
- new patch "riscv: sifive_e: Drop sifive_mmio_emulate()"
- fixed the "interrupts-extended" property size
- update the file header to indicate at least 2 harts are created
- use create_unimplemented_device() to create the GEM management
  block instead of sifive_mmio_emulate()
- add "phy-handle" property to the ethernet node
