[PATCH 2/2] ARM startup: Do call __mmu_cache_flush during startup

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


Traditionally we call __mmu_cache_flush in early startup. There
is a problem with armv7 and hierarchical caches though, on these
systems __mmu_cache_flush uses the stack. Appearantly this was
seldomly a problem, because most of these systems have a ROM
bootloader which sets up some stack, but on a special i.MX6 system
this failed badly. We should not have to flush caches here. Every
sane system should pass control to the bootloader without stale
entries in the caches *), so it should be a safe assumption that the
cache flush can be removed.

Since __mmu_cache_flush is not called from early code anymore we can
also move it to the regular text section.

Be brave and give it a try.

*) omap3 seems to be a exception to this, but this has a cache flush
in arch_init_lowlevel already
