[PATCH V2 0/3] hw/riscv: virt: Enable booting S-mode firmware from pflas

From: Sunil V L
Subject: [PATCH V2 0/3] hw/riscv: virt: Enable booting S-mode firmware from pflash
Date: Mon, 5 Sep 2022 23:52:35 +0530

This series adds the support to boot S-mode FW like EDK2 from the flash. The
S-mode firmware should be kept in pflash unit 1.

When -kernel (and -initrd) option is also provided along with the flash,
the kernel (and initrd) will be loaded into fw_cfg table and opensbi will
branch to the flash address which will be the entry point of the S-mode
firmware. The S-mode FW then loads and launches the kernel.

When only -pflash option is provided in the command line, the kernel
will be located and loaded in the usual way by the S-mode firmware.

These patches are available in below branch.

The first two patches in this series are refactor patches.

These changes are tested with a WIP EDK2 port for virt machine. Below
are the instructions to build and test this feature.

1) Get EDK2 sources from below branches.

2) Build EDK2 for RISC-V
        export WORKSPACE=`pwd`
        export GCC5_RISCV64_PREFIX=riscv64-linux-gnu-
        export PACKAGES_PATH=$WORKSPACE/edk2:$WORKSPACE/edk2-platforms
        export EDK_TOOLS_PATH=$WORKSPACE/edk2/BaseTools
        source edk2/edksetup.sh
        make -C edk2/BaseTools clean
        make -C edk2/BaseTools
        make -C edk2/BaseTools/Source/C
        source edk2/edksetup.sh BaseTools
        build -a RISCV64  -p Platform/Qemu/RiscVVirt/RiscVVirt.dsc -t GCC5

3)Make the EDK2 image size to match with what qemu flash expects
truncate -s 32M Build/RiscVVirt/DEBUG_GCC5/FV/RISCV_VIRT.fd

4) Run
a) Boot to EFI shell (no -kernel / -initrd option)
qemu-system-riscv64  -nographic   -drive 
-machine virt -M 2G

b) With -kernel, -initrd and -pflash
qemu-system-riscv64  -nographic   -drive 
-machine virt -M 2G -kernel arch/riscv/boot/Image.gz -initrd rootfs.cpio 

Changes since V1:
        1) Modified code to support the use case when both -kernel and -pflash 
are configured.
        2) Refactor patches added to help (1) above.
        3) Cover letter added with test instructions.
