2018-03-16arch: remove blackfin portArnd Bergmann1-71/+0
The Analog Devices Blackfin port was added in 2007 and was rather active for a while, but all work on it has come to a standstill over time, as Analog have changed their product line-up. Aaron Wu confirmed that the architecture port is no longer relevant, and multiple people suggested removing blackfin independently because of some of its oddities like a non-working SMP port, and the amount of duplication between the chip variants, which cause extra work when doing cross-architecture changes.

2012-03-26Kbuild: centralize MKIMAGE and cmd_uimage definitionsStephen Warren1-11/+8
All ARCHs have the same definition of MKIMAGE. Move it to Makefile.lib to avoid duplication. All ARCHs have similar definitions of cmd_uimage. Place a sufficiently parameterized version in Makefile.lib to avoid duplication.

2011-01-10Blackfin: encode cpu-rev into uImage nameMike Frysinger1-1/+1
Encoding the cpu family name apparently confuses people when they try to boot an image on a sub-variant, so encode the specific cpu name and the silicon rev instead. Signed-off-by: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>

2009-12-15Blackfin: add an uncompressed vmImage targetMike Frysinger1-1/+5
This is useful for quick tests where networks are faster than compression, and/or the compression code is broken. Reported-by: Magnus Damm <damm@igel.co.jp> Signed-off-by: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>
2009-06-22Blackfin: stick the CPU name into boot image nameRobin Getz1-1/+1
Rather than use "Linux" in the boot image name (as this is redundant -- the image type is already set to "linux"), use the CPU name. This makes it fairly obvious when a wrong image is accidentally booted. Otherwise there is no kernel output and you waste time scratching your head wondering wtf just happened.

2009-06-13Blackfin: add support for bzip2/lzma compressed kernel imagesMike Frysinger1-7/+24
Since U-Boot can support these compression types, add appropriate targets to the Blackfin boot files. Signed-off-by: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>
2008-12-03kbuild: use KECHO convenience echoMike Frysinger1-1/+1
Convert a few echos in the build system to new $(kecho) so we get correct output according to build verbosity. Signed-off-by: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org> [sam: added kecho in a few more places for O=... builds] Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

This adds support for the Analog Devices Blackfin processor architecture, and currently supports the BF533, BF532, BF531, BF537, BF536, BF534, and BF561 (Dual Core) devices, with a variety of development platforms including those avaliable from Analog Devices (BF533-EZKit, BF533-STAMP, BF537-STAMP, BF561-EZKIT), and Bluetechnix! Tinyboards. The Blackfin architecture was jointly developed by Intel and Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) as the Micro Signal Architecture (MSA) core and introduced it in December of 2000. Since then ADI has put this core into its Blackfin processor family of devices. The Blackfin core has the advantages of a clean, orthogonal,RISC-like microprocessor instruction set. It combines a dual-MAC (Multiply/Accumulate), state-of-the-art signal processing engine and single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) multimedia capabilities into a single instruction-set architecture. The Blackfin architecture, including the instruction set, is described by the ADSP-BF53x/BF56x Blackfin Processor Programming Reference http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/download/frsrelease/29/2549/Blackfin_PRM.pdf The Blackfin processor is already supported by major releases of gcc, and there are binary and source rpms/tarballs for many architectures at: http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/project/toolchain/frs There is complete documentation, including "getting started" guides available at: http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/ which provides links to the sources and patches you will need in order to set up a cross-compiling environment for bfin-linux-uclibc This patch, as well as the other patches (toolchain, distribution, uClibc) are actively supported by Analog Devices Inc, at: http://blackfin.uclinux.org/ We have tested this on LTP, and our test plan (including pass/fails) can be found at: http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=testing_the_linux_kernel [m.kozlowski@tuxland.pl: balance parenthesis in blackfin header files] Signed-off-by: Bryan Wu <bryan.wu@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Mariusz Kozlowski <m.kozlowski@tuxland.pl> Signed-off-by: Aubrey Li <aubrey.li@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Jie Zhang <jie.zhang@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
