Subject: [PATCH v4 0/2] ARM: Embedding Position Independent Executables
Date: Mon,  7 Nov 2016 23:24:56 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20161107222458.15732-1-alexandre.belloni@free-electrons.com> (raw)

This series introduces Position Independent Executables (PIEs) for the
ARM architecture.
The main goal is to avoid having to write low level code in assembly as
this is currently the case for suspend/resume. Multiple platforms will
benefit from this infrastructure: at91, rockchip, am335x.

It would also be beneficial for the LPDDR support on at91 to avoid
having the handle the DDR controller from 4 different drivers.

Russell, do you see any remaining issues with the current approach?

Changes in v4:
 - rebased on v4.9-rc1
 - Fixed an issue with the alignment reported by Mylene

Changes in v3:
 - rebased on v4.8-rc1

Changes in v2:
 - handle big endian
 - handle gcov and ftrace by disabling them before compilling the PIE
 - Get the alignment from the original ELF to ensure the PIE is
   properly aligned in SRAM.
 - stop using fncpy
 - rebased on v4.7-rc1
