Hi all.

This little detour started because Ahmad pointed out I had made
a stupid mistake in pwm-atmel.
So I decided I wanted to give it a spin to verify if it actually works
now.

The first challenge I encountered was that said driver had bit-rotted
as it used the old pwm framework - so I updated it from the Linux
kernel.
I have the code locally - but this time I will not have it posted before
it is tested.

Then I cloned the latest at91bootstrap - but they no longer support old
at91sam92xx CPUs.
So it was time to enable bootstrap support for at91sam9263.

In the past I had something working, but alas no luck this time.

Can anyone (Ahmad?) help me a little how to get the bootstrap
functionality working on the at91sam9263?

I do not expect patches, but I hope for something that can point me in
the right way to do it.

I have skov-arm9cpu boards (plenty - as they are mostly retired by SKOV)
and one at91sam9263ek where I can test.

We see very little interest in at91sam92* boards and we could decide
to retire all the boards that are not updated to multi-image.
This could simplify things - and if there is interest the missing boards
can be brought back to life provided they are updated to multi image.
Any comments on this?
I am happy to type the patches - and verify that the boards I have works.

	Sam

Hi,

To answer the obvious questions - what have I done so far.

- I have an at91bootstrap generated BOOT.BIN that works.
  This ruins out a lot of possible issues with the SD card
  as the board boots from the SD card with the at91bootstrap based
  BOOT.BIN.

- The toolchain used is generated from buildroot, and I do not have any
  proof that it works as I have not had any successes.
  So far I have assumed that it works.

- The configuration used is pasted below.

- The board I use is the skov-arm9cpu which I know works as it boots
  barebox with the at91bootstrap BOOT.BIN

- I have only a limited set of patches - pasted below.

- Latest barebox from the master branch

- I have tried to power cycle and reset of the board - no change

- There is a ">RomBOOT" prompt - but nothing else

	Sam

By porting sama5d3 I noticed that bootROM is resetting configuration for
at least some of ip cores. So, the main question is, do everything needed
for uart is still pre-configured? For example pllc and clk settings?

I would recommend to measure with scope the uart lines and see if you
get something and if it is at expected frequency. JTAG would probably
help as well to see what code is currently executed and if register
configurations are in expected state.

As soon as UART is working, every thing else will be not really hard to
do :)

I found this in the data sheet that agrees with you:

"
	Before performing the jump to the application in internal SRAM,
	all the PIOs and peripherals used in the boot
	program are set to their reset state.
"

I will throw some hours after this in the weekend to see if I can get
it up and running.

Agree, except that I need find a nice way to add whatever I do to the
current at91 stuff. But that is part of the fun.

Ouch. How did I miss this :/

The skov-arm9cpu looks like it already runs first stage without at91bootstrap?
So the issue is only with at91sam9263ek?

As long as it works, I guess most people don't see a reason make interest
publicly known.

I have only worked on SAMA5D3 and SAMA5D2. Of course, I'd like to see
board code in AT91 replaced with DT-enabled/multi-image-compatible code,
but I don't think it will happen. I don't think the maintenance burden
is high, so I'd just leave it as is. If it bitrots and people complain,
we can nudge them into the right direction.

> I am happy to type the patches - and verify that the boards I have works.

Great. Looking forward to more boards in at91_multi_defconfig.

Cheers,
Ahmad

So the arm9cpu boots XIP from NAND, but the 9263ek boots from SD?
Did I get that right?

That's not safe to call here. pbl_set_putc accesses global variables, but there has
been no relocation yet.

If you have a functional skov arm9cpu configuration. Could you figure out the bare
minimum of clock setup you need for DEBUG_LL to work and move that further up?

Once you get get to the barebox_arm_entry, you'll want to call into the PBL
xload from MMC stuff instead, like Oleksij did for the SAMA5D3.

Ahmad

For the moment my focus is on the skov-arm9cpu - and here bootstrap is
not (yet) functional. But I think with all the good feedback from you
and Oleksij I should manage. Thanks for the replies!

OK, you are right that if it just works no reason to touch it.
I will do the patches alongside the current codebase then.
