Subject: [PATCH 1/2] remoteproc: elf: support platform specific memory hook
Date: Tue, 28 Jul 2020 17:29:39 +0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Peng Fan <>

To arm64, "dc      zva, dst" is used in memset.
Per ARM DDI 0487A.j, chapter C5.3.8 DC ZVA, Data Cache Zero by VA,

"If the memory region being zeroed is any type of Device memory,
this instruction can give an alignment fault which is prioritized
in the same way as other alignment faults that are determined
by the memory type."

On i.MX platforms, when elf is loaded to onchip TCM area, the region
is ioremapped, so "dc zva, dst" will trigger abort. And ioremap_wc()
on i.MX not able to write correct data to TCM area.

So we need to use io helpers, and extend the elf loader to support
platform specific memory functions.
