Subject: [PATCH master v2 1/3] ARM: asm: fix miscompilation of 32-bit ENTRY_FUNCTION_WITHSTACK
Date: Mon, 25 Apr 2022 08:25:21 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

gcc-11.1.1 shipped with OSELAS.Toolchain-2021.07.0 hoists a single
instruction from __ARM_SETUP_STACK in front of __barebox_arm_head
breaking the barebox header format for the Raspberry Pi 3. This can't
happen with ARM64 and the Raspberry Pi entry points are currently the
only 32-bit users.

While the resulting barebox image was still bootable, header detection
would fail. Add an intermediate naked function to work around this.

This is not required for plain ENTRY_FUNCTION, because the
board-supplied entry point is already NAKED. For
ENTRY_FUNCTION_WITH_FUNCTION, that same entry point is intentionally
non-naked to reduce pitfalls for board code authors..

Fixes: 880c9803b95a ("ARM: implement ENTRY_FUNCTION_WITHSTACK")
