Subject: [PATCH v2] ARM: i.MX8MP: adapt atf bl31 base addr
Date: Mon,  4 Jul 2022 16:27:00 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The usptream TF-A was shifting around the base address from version to
version. But finally with upstream TF-A v2.7 it is correctly set to
0x970000. This change was done since the first official silicon has an
SRAM size of 576KB where as the tapeout version A1 (pre-silicion) had
only 512KB.

The upstream TF-A has adapt it in verion v2.5 so the BL31 blob is at the
end of the SRAM. Unfortunately they had (accidental) reverted back to
0x960000 in v2.6. They noticed that and changed (again) back to 0x970000.
with v2.7.

This commit also adapts the documentation for the i.MX8MP-EVK to
reference the upstream TF-A. The new warning should point out that we
strongly recommended to use versions from v2.7 onwards, due to the
version mess explained above.

- fix commit message ger/eng mixup and mention tapeout version A1
