[PATCH v4 0/4] Add OpenSBI dynamic firmware support

From: Atish Patra
Subject: [PATCH v4 0/4] Add OpenSBI dynamic firmware support
Date: Wed, 1 Jul 2020 11:39:45 -0700

This series adds support OpenSBI dynamic firmware support to Qemu.
Qemu loader passes the information about the DT and next stage (i.e. kernel
or U-boot) via "a2" register. It allows the user to build bigger OS images
without worrying about overwriting DT. It also unifies the reset vector code
in rom and dt placement. Now, the DT is copied directly in DRAM instead of ROM.

The changes have been verified on following qemu machines.

 - spike, sifive_u, virt
 - virt

I have also verified fw_jump on all the above platforms to ensure that this
series doesn't break the existing setup.

Changes from v3->v4:
1. Addressed all review comments.
2. Added another patch that allows to boot a qemu machine from 64bit
   start address for RV64.

Changes from v2->v3:
1. Removed redundant header includes.

Changes from v1->v2:
1. Rebased on top of latest upstream Qemu (with MSEL changes for sifive_u).
2. Improved the code organization

Atish Patra (4):
riscv: Unify Qemu's reset vector code path
RISC-V: Copy the fdt in dram instead of ROM
riscv: Add opensbi firmware dynamic support
RISC-V: Support 64 bit start address
