[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v5 0/6] arm: add Cortex M0 CPU model and hex file lo

From: Stefan Hajnoczi
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v5 0/6] arm: add Cortex M0 CPU model and hex file loader
Date: Mon, 13 Aug 2018 19:46:18 +0100

 * Implemented Phil's hex loader suggestions
 * Replaced Su Hang's test hex file with a simple memory test pattern,
   eliminating the need to distribute source [Phil]
 * Drop ARMv7MState to ARMMProfileState rename because it causes a lot of code
   churn and is incomplete.  Other parts of QEMU (like NVIC emulation) still
   refer to "v7m" although they apply to other architecture versions too.
 * Use the generic loader device (-device loader,file=program.hex,cpu-num=1)
   instead of -kernel.  -kernel is a legacy command-line option that is kept as
   a convenience, but it's not as flexible or predictable as the generic loader
   device.  New image formats should be added to the generic loader device.
 * Use hex/ASCII literals instead of decimal literals in hexloader-test.c.
   This makes the test case slightly easier to understand. [Philippe]
 * Rename ARMv7MState to ARMMProfileState so a single class can cater for
   ARMv6-M, ARMv7-M, and ARMv8-M [Peter]
 * Make bitbanding optional via a qdev property [Peter]
 * Add hex file loader patches to reduce dependencies in upcoming patch series
 * Implement rollback if hex file loader fails partway through [Peter]
 * Update hex file loader test case to use an ARMv7-M board since hex file
   loading is only done for ARM M Profile boards

This series contains the prerequistes for the "microbit" machine type that Joel
Stanley has written.  I have combined the Cortex M0 CPU model and hex loader
work into one series to reduce the dependencies in upcoming patch series from
Joel, Julia, and Steffen.

This patch series:
 * Makes bitbanding optional on ARMv7MState.
 * Adds a "cortex-m0" cpu type which can be used with ARMMProfileState.  This
   works thanks to Julia's Cortex M0 emulation patches, which are now all
 * Adds Su Hang's Intel HEX file format loader so that micro:bit and other
   microcontroller firmware images can be run using -kernel.  The micro:bit
   development tools typically only emit .hex files and not ELFs.

Stefan Hajnoczi (4):
  hw/arm: make bitbanded IO optional on ARMv7-M
  target/arm: add "cortex-m0" CPU model
  loader: extract rom_free() function
  loader: add rom transaction API

Su Hang (2):
  loader: Implement .hex file loader
  Add QTest testcase for the Intel Hexadecimal
