Author: mcayland Date: Tue Jun 8 22:59:08 2010 New Revision: 791 URL: http://tracker.coreboot.org/trac/openbios/changeset/791
Log: As documented on the mailing lists, change the interposition order of the disk packages from:
cdrom -> deblocker -> disk-label -> (misc-files | sun-parts | pc-parts | mac-parts)
cdrom -> deblocker -> disk-label -> (sun-parts | pc-parts | mac-parts) -> misc-files
This makes the overall code much simpler, since instead of passing get-info structures between the different layers to work out the current device offset, each package can simply maintain its own offsets and bubble them back up to the parent.
There are also many, many bugfixes present is patch, some of which are given below:
- Add debugging in /packages/misc-files, augment debugging in all other disk packages
- Fix alignment issue in /packages/pc-parts so it works correctly on strictly align archs, e.g. SPARC64
- Fix parsing of [<id>,][filename] arguments to load (in preparation for next patch set)
- Fix byte-swapping issues in /packages/mac-parts (in theory it should now work regardless of endian)
Unfortunately this commit has broken PowerPC boot using the Quik bootloader. CD-ROM boot is not affected. This can easily be reproduced using the image from:
I have tried with the latest available revision, and the problem is still there. Does anyone has an idea of the problem before I start debugging it?
