[Qemu-devel] [PATCH for-3.0] hw/misc/tz-mpc: Zero the LUT on initializat

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH for-3.0] hw/misc/tz-mpc: Zero the LUT on initialization, not just reset
Date: Tue, 24 Jul 2018 16:36:16 +0100

In the tz-mpc device we allocate a data block for the LUT,
which we then clear to zero in the device's reset method.
This is conceptually fine, but unfortunately results in a
valgrind complaint about use of uninitialized data on startup:

This is because of a reset ordering problem -- the TZ MPC
resets after the CPU, but an M-profile CPU's reset function
includes memory loads to get the initial PC and SP, which
then go through an MPC that hasn't yet been reset.

The simplest fix for this is to zero the LUT when we
initialize the data, which will result in the MPC's
translate function giving the right answers for these
early memory accesses.

I think the long-term solution is probably for the M profile
reset not to load PC and SP in its reset function (which
has other issues, like not interacting nicely with ROM
images which write to aliased memory regions), but that's
