2011-10-06C6X: early boot codeAurelien Jacquiot1-0/+84
Original port to early 2.6 kernel using TI COFF toolchain. Brought up to date by Mark Salter <msalter@redhat.com> This patch provides the early boot code for C6X architecture. There is a 16 entry vector table which is used to direct reset and interrupt events. The vector table entries contain a small amount of code (maximum of 8 opcodes) which simply branches to the actual event handling code. The head.S code simply clears BSS, setups up a few control registers, and calls machine_init followed by start_kernel. The machine_init code in setup.c does the early flat tree parsing (memory, commandline, etc). At setup_arch time, the code does the usual memory setup and minimally scans the devicetree for any needed information.
