2008-08-02Fix IHEX firmware generation/loadingMarc Zyngier1-3/+3
Fix both the IHEX firmware generation (len field always null, and EOF marker a byte too short) and loading (struct ihex_binrec needs to be packed to reflect the on-disk structure). Signed-off-by: Marc Zyngier <maz@misterjones.org> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>
2008-07-16Fix 'make clean' and .gitignore for firmware/ directory.David Woodhouse2-1/+7
Provide a .gitignore file, and fix a typo which prevented some of the generated binary files from being removed on 'make clean'.

2008-07-14Fix accidental reference to tg3 firmwareDavid Woodhouse1-2/+0
We're not updating the tg3 driver to use request_firmware() yet, but a reference to its firmware accidentally slipped in as part of commit c4667746 ("dabusb: use request_firmware()"). Remove it again. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com> Reported-by: Yinghai Lu <yhlu.kernel@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2008-07-14firmware: Correct dependency on CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIRDavid Woodhouse1-1/+1
When CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR gets changed, the filename in the .S file (which uses .incbin to include the binary) needs to change. When we renamed the BUILTIN_FIRMWARE_DIR option to EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR, we forgot to update the manual dependency in firmware/Makefile, so it was depending on a non-existent file in include/config/ Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-07-14vicam: use request_firmware()Jaswinder Singh3-0/+18
Although it wasn't actually using ihex records before, we use the Intel HEX record format for this firmware -- because that gives us a simple way to split it into separate chunks internally as we need, without loading each part as a separate file.

2008-07-10firmware: convert Ambassador ATM driver to request_firmware()David Woodhouse2-0/+205
Since it had various regions to be loaded to separate addresses, and it wanted to do them in fairly small chunks anyway, switch it to use the new ihex code.

2008-07-10ihex: Add support for long records to ihex2fw.cDavid Woodhouse2-19/+47
Some drivers could do with using records like Intel HEX, but with each record being larger than 256 bytes. This has been possible in the binary representation (struct ihex_binrec) in the kernel since the beginning -- at least of the the current version of history. But we haven't been able to represent that in the .HEX files which get converted to .fw files. This adds a '-w' option to ihex2fw to make it interpret the first _two_ bytes of each line as the record length, instead of only one byte. And adds makefile rules for %.H16->%.fw which use that. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
2008-07-10ihex: add ihex2fw tool for converting HEX files into firmware imagesDavid Woodhouse2-0/+261
Not the straight conversion to binary which objcopy can do for us, but actually representing each record with its original {addr, length}, because some drivers need that information preserved. Fix up 'firmware_install' to be able to build $(hostprogs-y) too. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
2008-07-10firmware: Add firmware installation to modules_install, add firmware_installDavid Woodhouse1-7/+17
For 'make modules_install', install any firmware required by the modules which are being installed. Also add a 'make firmware_install' target which doesn't depend on the configuration, but installs _all_ available in-kernel-tree firmware into $(INSTALL_FW_PATH), which defaults to /lib/firmware. This is intended for distributors to make arch-independent (and config-independent) packages containing firmware. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>
2008-07-10firmware: Add CONFIG_FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL option.David Woodhouse1-0/+5
This will control whether we build firmware into the kernel image for _every_ driver which we convert to request_firmware(), to avoid a proliferation of 'CONFIG_XXX_FIRMWARE' options for each one. Default to 'y' for now, which is the wrong thing to do but people seem to be insisting on it and refusing to even review patches until it's done. And it does preserve the existing behaviour for built-in drivers. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
2008-07-10firmware: Add CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE optionDavid Woodhouse1-0/+88
This allows arbitrary firmware files to be included in the static kernel where the firmware loader can find them without requiring userspace to be alive. (Updated and CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR added with lots of help from Johannes Berg). Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net>
