Subject: [PATCH v4 0/1] CPUCFG emulation on older Loongson64 cores
Date: Sat, 23 May 2020 21:37:00 +0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This patch brings the CPUCFG instruction to older Loongson64 cores,
enabling a unified way to query processor characteristics on Loongson64
systems. Previous question of how to best integrate machtype-specific
and machtype-agnostic cpu probe logic is resolved. (thanks Thomas for

Tested on Loongson-3A3000.

Also, to aid userspace in determining CPUCFG availability without having
to handle SIGILL or parse /proc/cpuinfo, a new HWCAP flag is to be added
in a later patch. I am waiting for consensus before implementing this,
as it would be part of userspace ABI.

- Fixed line wrapping as suggested by Huacai

- Fixed build on !CONFIG_MACH_LOONGSON64
- Refactored to minimize intrusion to machtype-agnostic cpu probe logic
- Minor tweaks to comment and Kconfig wording
- Dropped Reviewed-by and Tested-by from Jiaxun as the code is
  refactored significantly

- Fixed one more typo in loongson_regs.h
- Merged simulate_loongson3_csr and simulate_loongson3_csr_cpucfg into
  one (simulate_loongson3_cpucfg), per Huacai's suggestion
