Hi All,

I was able to update the local git kernel directory with git pull without the commit powerpc-4.7-1.

Hi All,

I found the following kernel config option:

Code: Select all
Radix MMU Support (PPC_RADIX_MMU) [Y/n/?] (NEW)


I deactivated this option because maybe it solves our problem.

I compiled the RC1 of kernel 4.7 without this option and with

Code: Select all
__ioremap_at(range.cpu_addr, (void *)ISA_IO_BASE,
                               range.size, pgprot_val(pgprot_noncached(__pgprot(0))));


Unfortunately it doesn't boot.

Rgds,

Christian

Re: Kernel 4.7

The commit powerpc-4.7-2 was released yesterday.

There is a conflict in my local kernel git directory if I use git pull because I have reverted the commit powerpc-4.7-1.

The commit powerpc-4.7-2 needs the commit powerpc-4.7-1.

I created a new local kernel git directory for the RC2 with:

Code: Select all
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git linux-git-without-powerpc-commits


After that I reverted the two commits:

powerpc-4.7-2:

Code: Select all
git revert 5306d766f15e72bc79c61d88f77e5a6b1fcc0e68 -m 1


powerpc-4.7-1:

Code: Select all
git revert c04a5880299eab3da8c10547db96ea9cdffd44a6 -m 1


Afterwards I successfully tested our latest Nemo patch 4.7-1 with the following commands:

Code: Select all
cp -R linux-git-without-powerpc-commits linux-4.7


Code: Select all
patch -p0 < nemo_4.7-1.patch

I compiled the latest git version of kernel 4.7 with all PowerPC commits. Maybe the latest commit powerpc-4.7-2 solved the boot issues. Our latest Nemo patch 4.7-1 works without any problems with the latest git version.

I got the following error message:

Code: Select all
arch/powerpc/kernel/pci-common.c: In function ‘pci_process_bridge_OF_ranges’:
arch/powerpc/kernel/pci-common.c:732:59: error: ‘_PAGE_GUARDED’ undeclared (first use in this function)
                                range.size, _PAGE_NO_CACHE|_PAGE_GUARDED);
                                                           ^

make[1]: *** [arch/powerpc/kernel/pci-common.o] Fehler 1
make: *** [arch/powerpc/kernel] Fehler 2


I replaced

Code: Select all
__ioremap_at(range.cpu_addr, (void *)ISA_IO_BASE,
                               range.size, _PAGE_NO_CACHE|_PAGE_GUARDED);


with

Code: Select all
__ioremap_at(range.cpu_addr, (void *)ISA_IO_BASE,
                               range.size, pgprot_val(pgprot_noncached(__pgprot(0))));


After that it compiled.

Unfortunately it doesn't boot. :-(

I think Darren's guess is correct. It isn't a problem in the pci code. I replaced the file head_64.S that Darren mentioned with the one from the kernel 4.6 and it compiled but unfortunately it doesn't boot. We know head_64.S is one file for the early boot phase but I think there are some other files.

I am not a fan of reverting the PowerPC commits but there are some other new things in the new kernel e.g. DRM 2.45.0 which are very interesting for the Nemo board.

Tomorrow, I will release the RC2 without the PowerPC commits because of the new DRM 2.45.0.

Hi All,

I released the RC2 of kernel 4.7 today.

New:


Note: I compiled the RC2 without the new PowerPC code because this code doesn't work with our Nemo board. The new PowerPC code for the kernel 4.7 doesn't bring any improvements for our Nemo board. With the RC2 we have the opportunity, to use other new exciting features like the new DRM 2.45.0 for our Nemo board.

Download: vmlinux-4.7-rc2-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Please test the RC2.

Thanks in advance,

Christian

Just some info for 4.7rc2.

It boots and runs fine for Deb7 and Mintppc11.
On Deb8, it boots but has problems with Xorg.

Many thanks for testing. Does Xorg work with the kernel 4.6.1?

@All

range.size, pgprot_val(pgprot_noncached(__pgprot(0)))); isn't the problem. It works.

I found it out with bisect today. The following commit could be the problem:

powerpc/mm/radix: Add checks in slice code to catch radix usage (764041e0f43cc7846f6d8eb246d65b53cc06c764)

Radix doesn't need slice support. Catch incorrect usage of slice code
when radix is enabled.

Hi All,

I replaced the file slice.c with the old one from kernel 4.6. It compiled but unfortunately it doesn't boot.
