this patch changes vm86.c:do_bios to run_bios(dev, addr).
While doing this, we can remove lot of code duplication about searching
the device, which is already done in the parent pci_device.c.
I apologize I forgot to apply "Signed-off-by: Alex Beregszaszi
<alex(a)rtfs.hu>" to my patches. From hereby, my earlier patches shall be
taken as signed off by me.
Will not forget for further patches.
while looking at the OpenMoko codebase, I noticed they are using UBoot
as their hardware init software. UBoot seems to be similar to LinuxBIOS
from a conceptual point of view, although it seems they target mostly
embedded and non-x86 systems, while we mostly target x86/x86_64 systems
where hardware configuration can be changed easily by the user.
Did anyone publish a comparison between LinuxBIOS and UBoot or is there
some mail exchange which I could read to learn about the relationship
between the two projects?
here's my proposal for moving (via 'svn mv') common utilities which are
not specific to a certain version of LinuxBIOS into the global util/
(they are now in the v2 util/).
abuild -- needs discussion; will it work for v3 eventually?
ADLO -- is/should be version-independant
buildrom -- not related to Jordan's buildrom? Needed in v2?
lbtdump -- Do we need this at all? Can't lxbios do the same?
Projects which should _not_ be moved
newconfig -- v2-specific
optionlist -- v2-specific
options -- needed for v2 build, but we have a fork in v3 (FIXME?)
romcc -- not used in v3
vgabios -- we use a different/modified version in v3, so leave this
If nobody complains, I'll move the projects tomorrow or so.
Another discussion is needed as to which of the utilities we should
draw back into v2/v3 via svn:externals (IMHO _not_ all of them, only
often-used ones). After a quick look I'd suggest the following:
- adlo (while we're at it, we should rename it from ADLO to adlo, IMO)
This will be used often for booting Windows and OpenBSD soon...
- flashrom (already done), often used for flashing.
- lxbios (already done), often used for changing options.

please stop these "trivial" self-acked fixes to flashrom. They are
either wrong, remove documentation or change capitalization or
punctuation in comments. Neither of these actions is beneficial.
I'll send patches to undo the wrong parts.
