[PATCH v2 0/2] MIPS: enable APRP (APSP) and add features - v2

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The APRP model makes it possible that one or more CPUs run the Linux
kernel whereas a dedicated CPU runs special real-time or signal processing
program.

This patchset adds the following to the current APRP support:
1. Several bug fixes;
2. Running floating point heavy jobs on the RP side;
3. Waking up RP side read by interrupt;
4. CPS multicore APRP support.

A mp3 player program was ported to run in the APRP (APSP exactly) model.
Considerable performance benefits were observed on the player program.

Changes:
v2 - v1:
o Rebase the patches to the latest kernel, and fix a bunch of warnings and
  errors reported by the current scripts/checkpatch.pl.
o Add MIPS_MALTA dependency to Kconfig since modifications of Malta files
  are needed. But it should be easy to port changes to other platforms.
