<bslsk05> ​info.computerhistory.org: Download Apple Lisa
<klange> The Lisa was much maligned, but it really was a fundamental change in consumer computer interfaces.
invalidopcode has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<klange> It's also exciting to see Apple make a museum donation of source code.
invalidopcode has joined #osdev
<epony> for a 40 year obsolete project
<epony> it's like Microsoft donating the source code to Windows 2
<Mutabah> Given MS's backwards compatability standards - Windows 2's code might still hold some value to them
<epony> for DOS/WIN 3
<Mutabah> And really, any company releasing historically significant code is interesting
<epony> the Lisa emulators are so important, we can hardly wait on these
<kazinsal> Apparently the code for the original release of PostScript is on CHM now too.
<moon-child> valuable in what sense? I mean, it's valuable for them to have it, but releasing the source code wouldn't stop their having it
<epony> it's 40 years too late
<Mutabah> legal/IP value
<epony> should have been release for previous generation machine support when new come up
<epony> yeah, fuck patents and copyright law, pirate everything!
<epony> or much rather, don't use systems like that, so they are not important ever again
<epony> you don't get trillion dollar worth with correct and public interest and science and technology decisions
<epony> it's just bad designs and bad technical achievements that are into incompatibility, lack of standardisation, proprietary and secretive exploits
<epony> so they are not "anti"-IBM, they are IBM done worse for consumers and suckers
<epony> (and cost more and work worse)
<epony> fall into the category of parody, consumer with incompatiblity and good chance to make a long lasting impact for computing, instead making money and models that don't work well so a new model obsoletes it
<epony> Apple really had an advantage on cheap and low end PCs in the beginning
gog has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
<epony> well, maybe it's like Windows 3/3.1 moreso than 2/2.1 (incomplete) but Win3 is much more successful since it came later and had more features and capability (newer and more powerful computers) and benefitted more from the DOS epoch, while Apple took the early feature on a weaker incompatible computers and then high costs too

<moon-child> hmmm. How do I say 'round up to the next positive multiple of 16'?
<moon-child> not (x+15)&~15, because then 0 rounds to 0, not 16
<bradd> if (x % 16) x = x + (16 - (x % 16)) maybe?
<moon-child> I might as well branch, then. Just curious if there's something clever I've missed
<moon-child> oh, and your solution do anything with x=0 either
<Mutabah> The branch is required afaik
<bradd> oh. thought you wanted it aligned to a multiple of 16
<Mutabah> If you do it after the operation, the compiler might just emit a `cmov` and it'd be basically free
<moon-child> I would prefer a branch to a cmov
<moon-child> context is malloc
<Mutabah> wait, what do you mean about prefering a branch to a `cmov`?
<Mutabah> (I mean the `cmov` instruction)
<moon-child> cmov goes on the criticial path. Branch, if correctly predicted, does not
<zid> !!!x<<4
<zid> add that?
<moon-child> if I can do malloc(0) -> malloc(16) for free, I'll do it. Otherwise I'll eat the branch earlier and do something else
<zid> what's the difference between rounding down then adding 16?
<zid> that should offset your sequence by 16 like you wanted no?
<moon-child> because 16 should round to 16
<moon-child> the only thing I want is that 0 should round to 16
<zid> okay then what I said works
<moon-child> !!!x<<4? Yeah but that's extra ops
<Mutabah> Does your malloc have a block header or footer?
<zid> well yea, it's an extra step
<zid> you want a discontinuity
<Mutabah> If it does, you could add the size of that then round
<moon-child> Mutabah: nope
<moon-child> (did consider to add an overflow canary, but it'll be optional if I do add it)

<epony> on the wrong kind of machines you shift left, on the right kind of machines you shift 3b
<epony> in the better programming languages, that is machine independent, in the worse programming languages you really have no access to the hardware so you need real ones to do your work
<epony> of which you obviously know nothing
<epony> so all kinds of contraptions are invented ;-) but expect to find an instruction in the listing of the machine instructions that does that
<epony> might optimise away a whole block of code and a couple of fake languages
<dinkelhacker> I mean even in the _real_ languages the compiler will optimize away many blocks of code^^
<epony> only if you're the same level of stupidity as the one that the compiler knows how to deal with
<dinkelhacker> Like I vividly remember my colleagues face when I told him that he had to debug his code with -O2 bc. it wouldn't fit in the target otherwise. Like for every 20 lines of c code 1 line of asm was left.
<geist> yah thats frequently a real issue with embedded targets

eroux has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
<clever> ive been building some arm code for the GBA, and ive noticed, gcc is using the `b` opcode to call functions, but the GBA encourages use of thumb mode
<clever> ive also noticed the linker generating wrapper functions, to switch modes
<clever> what determines if gcc uses b or bx?
eroux has joined #osdev
<zid> -mthumb :P
<clever> zid: the problem is the inter-op
<clever> if i compile one .o in arm mode, and its using b
<clever> and then another .o in thumb mode
<clever> and i link them together
<clever> `b` is not the right opcode to cross over
<zid> it knows based on the low bit of the address doesn't it
<zid> does it not check?
<clever> the bx opcode does, branch and exchange
<clever> but the b opcode isnt even capable of holding that low bit
<clever> the bit is just missing
<clever> the linker is aware of it, but its too late to change the assembly
<zid> you can also erm, -mthumb-inerwork
<clever> `b` takes an immediate pc-relative offset, with bits 0/1 missing
<clever> so a single 32bit opcode is enough to jump +/- 8mb
<clever> but `bx` instead takes a register, and uses the low bit to determine if its arm or thumb
<zid> also mcallee-super-interworking
<clever> so you need a 2nd opcode to load that addr
<zid> which makes all functions arm but they b +1 or something at the start
<clever> and then a .word to hold the addr
lockna has quit [Quit: lockna]
<clever> trying those 2 flags...
fedorafan has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
eroux has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<clever> with -mthumb (but one function is forced to arm mode), i see bl being used for every call, from both arm and thumb mode, and bx being used for returns
<clever> the same if i omit it, and it defaults to arm
<bslsk05> ​github.com: gcc/README-interworking at master · gcc-mirror/gcc · GitHub
<zid> Found a guide
<clever> ah, nice
<geist> yeah i used to know that in an out, but i've forgottem more about it
<clever> with -mthumb-interwork, it still uses bl to call printf/puts, no real change
<geist> but yeah it also depends exactly on what version of the ARM isa you're using
<geist> notably, armv4, armv5, and armv6/7
<geist> because there are more instructions available in v5 that make the interworking simpler (blx is the biggie)
<geist> and v6 makes it such that less of the special instructions are needed, etc
fedorafan has joined #osdev
<geist> by the time v6/v7 was around, interworking was not really that special case, but early on it was a pain
<clever> arm7tdmi i believe
<geist> yah arm7tdmi is the earliest thumb cpu, basically (and very popular for a while)
<geist> armv4
<clever> the GBA is capable of running arm opcodes, but the bus to the cartridge rom is only 16bits wide
zaquest has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<clever> so it takes twice as long to load an arm opcode
<zid> arm7tdmi <3
<geist> for it you really need to compile *all* the code with -mthumb-interwork, as zid said
<zid> gba has weird memory map with some fast ram and stuff too
<geist> so that the arm code is ready to deal with back and forth
<geist> *at some cost* i should add, which is why it's not the default
<zid> so you need to bank bits of code in and out of it
<clever> geist: i tried with -mthumb-interwork but it still used bl, i need to double-check the docs zid linked
<zid> did you compile both ends with it?
<geist> its complicated. some of the b/bl/blx instructions can be fixed in the linker, some cant
<geist> based on the isa
<clever> yeah
<geist> also the linker can decide tha tyou're going from arm to arm and not do special shit, etc
<clever> the arm7tdmi have a nice table on the bit level encoding, and its surprisingly simple
<geist> but stuff like exiting a function generally involves poppping into lr and bx lr
<clever> and `b` is always pc-relative, with bit0/1 missing
<geist> because it might be returning to a thumb caller, etc
<kazinsal> fiddling with CP/M-86 in an 86box virtual machine and it's actually kinda neat how much more complicated the CLI is than DOS in some ways
<clever> while `bx` takes a register, and now you need an extra cost to populate the reg
<geist> right. and there was in v4 iirc a bl <address> but not a blx <address>
<clever> and the linker cant insert more opcodes after the fact
<kazinsal> eg. the HELP command loads something more like a man pager with subsections that you can specifically invoke
<geist> blx <address> came in v5
<clever> ooooo
<clever> that might be the problem then
<geist> so if you might call into thumb you had to go through ah interwork vaneer routine that the linker generated
<clever> the cpu just lacks blx, so it must go thru a wrapper!
<geist> that basically loads the target into a reg and uses bx
<clever> yeah, the linker was already generating those, i wanted it to not, and just blx
<clever> but it sounds like the cpu just isnt able to
<kazinsal> if you do `help protocol examples` it'll show you examples of how to invoke the `protocol` command
<geist> and due to the quirk of the pipeline: mov pc lr; bx target is the equivalent of blx
<geist> because mov lr, pc (sorry was wrong before) puts the instruction 2 instructions in the future
<geist> which just so happens to be the one after bx
<geist> correct, re blx. blx came along in v5
<geist> v6 tidied things up a bit and said 'all instructions that shove a thing in PC honor the bottom bit and interwork'
<geist> whereas in v4 and v5 you had to use the bx <reg> instruction and stuff like mov pc, <some reg> didn't work
<geist> anyway, it's a fucking mess
<geist> geezus i used to know this in an out and now you caused me to drag it out of my memory and stuff it on the top of the stack
<clever> i did also see that pipeline quirk, in the offset b contains
<geist> yah cute huh
<clever> its pc-relative, but its ~2 opcodes ahead of the b
<heat> what's an ISA without ✨✨mess✨✨
<geist> this is where the riscv 16/32 instruction stuff is so pretty and nice
<geist> and as a result very very effectively AFAICT
<geist> effective
<geist> but thumb was jammed in late. side note arstechnica has a pretty good 3 part article series on the history of arm, starting with https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2022/09/a-history-of-arm-part-1-building-the-first-chip/
<bslsk05> ​arstechnica.com: A history of ARM, part 1: Building the first chip | Ars Technica
<clever> let me try one other thing, that i expect to horribly break it...
<clever> *facepalm*
<clever> i was going to remove -mcpu= to trick it into using blx
<heat> reject thumb, embrace jazelle
<geist> note this is somewhat why in LK i removed v4 and v5 support (and v6 really). i got tired of dealing with some of this legacy nonsense. by v7 the thumb2 support was a nice complete solution
<clever> -mcpu= is already missing, i forgot to include it in the gcc args, lol
<geist> if you dont want to pick a cpu you can also use -march=armv5, etc
<clever> i had been considering re-adding it, but as a new arch, so it couldnt conflict too heavily
<clever> just so i can run LK on more crazy things
<geist> meh.
<geist> originally i wrote it halfway to run on https://github.com/travisg/armemu
<bslsk05> ​travisg/armemu - ARM emulator (11 forks/40 stargazers/MIT)
<geist> which emulates up through v5
<clever> but it also lacks an mmu
<clever> and even VBAR
<clever> all irq's jump to the bios rom, which then loads an addr from ram, and jumps to it, in arm mode
<geist> indeed. in early arm7tdmi and whatnot it had one of two vector tables: 0 and something like -64K
<geist> iirc
<heat> leave the crazy things to die

<heat> it's not, it was a typo
<heat> well, in this case the error is slightly misleading
<dinkelhacker> I'm looking at the dts qemu genreated (arm64, virt). According to the dts the timer interrupts are interrupts = <0x01 0x0d 0x104 0x01 0x0e 0x104 0x01 0x0b 0x104 0x01 0x0a 0x104>;. I thought if the first value is non-zero that means its an SPI. Shouldn't the timer irs be core local an therefore be PPIs?
<ddevault> paste the dts?
<ddevault> from Documentation/devicetree/bindings/arm/gic.txt:
<bslsk05> ​www.reddit.com: Reddit - Dive into anything
<ddevault> >The 1st cell is the interrupt type; 0 for SPI interrupts, 1 for PPI interrupts
<ddevault> dinkelhacker: ^
<ddevault> and from Documentation/devicetree/bindings/arm/arch_timer.txt, the interrupts are, in order, secure, non-secure, virtual, and hypervisor
<dinkelhacker> Wait what? I've been on like 2 page where they say its the other way arround
<ddevault> the meaning of interrupts = <> is specific to the interrupt controller
<ddevault> I'm assuming your configuration has a standard ARM GIC, which is probably true
<ddevault> in which case consult gic.txt for details on the interrupts = <> format
<dinkelhacker> yes it has... oh okay I thought it is independet of the controller... silly me. Thx!

<heat> gog, I love the way it looks
<heat> what shall we do now
<gog> fight to the death
<kazinsal> EVE and COD mostly
<heat> mjg, wut wut
<kazinsal> I inhabit two opposite ends of the gamer spectrum
<kaichiuchi> hi
<heat> kazinsal, you know, what you really should be using, is linux
<kazinsal> on one, grognard playing space sociopath simulator. on the other, brain disengage and playing honky-in-the-middle-east sociopath simulator
<zid> Oh dust was shut down in 2016, til
<kazinsal> yeah dust died when the PS3 did
<gog> factorio is the only game that needs to exist
<kaichiuchi> i bought a new keyboard, right?
<kaichiuchi> and I hate it
<heat> ok
<gog> heat you should join my factorio game
<heat> use your mouse and a virtual keyboard
<zid> wow
<zid> I don't get invited but heat does
<heat> oh wait its linux you probably have none
<gog> zid you should join gtoo
<kazinsal> I got an NDA signing request a month and change ago from CCP regarding an EVE FPS tho
<kaichiuchi> it's an excellent keyboard for everyone who isn't a programmer
<zid> what version are you on
<kazinsal> so hopefully new EVE MMOFPS soon
<gog> latest stable
<kaichiuchi> you need to hold Fn for basically everything
<zid> ah okay I cannae play then
<gog> dang
<zid> unless latest is .79, I think I have that
<heat> gog, i don't know what factorio is
<gog> fuck off you liar
<GeDaMo> I think it's a video game :|
<zid> I've been playing .74 cus that's the version that space explo needed
<heat> it looks very old school
<heat> kind of cringe
<zid> heat thinks games are bad if they don't have grass and men in shorts
<zid> althetic men, with strong legs
<mjg> heat: have you ever used windows 95?
<heat> mjg, yes
<mjg> the 9x family was famously unstable
<zid> gog: turn auth off and tell me login
<mjg> to the point where even fanboys were not claiming otherwise
<kazinsal> focusing on leg day to be a proper gamer
<heat> mjg, i was wutting to your wut
<zid> 95 was kinda stable
<kaichiuchi> i really liked 2000/XP
<zid> 98 was less-so because.. more random hardware with shit chinese drivers existed by that point :P
<mjg> heat: wut re itanium and i386
<zid> WHQL now exists for a reason
<mjg> bro
<heat> mjg, yeah it existed internally
<mjg> zid: lemme tell you my adventure with windows 95
<zid> nah
<mjg> zid: it literally stopped booting out of nowhere
<zid> tell me login for factorio
<zid> ip pls
<kazinsal> if I have to boot an operating system for non work purposes that's older than 15 years old I boot up a new 86box VM
<kaichiuchi> still kinda remarkable how much old tech is still used
<heat> fork() moment
<kazinsal> and if someone's telling me to boot up a > 15 year old operating system for work I'm calling an account manager with a bunch of short and angry words prepped
<kaichiuchi> nuclear missile silos still use DOS
<gog> zid: it's not my server
<gog> i'll ask if we can do
<zid> tell ip
<gog> :1
<zid> I'll make you a red circuit
<heat> :1 is not an ip gog
<zid> :1 is a port heat
<zid> you need a port
<zid> ::1:1
<heat> :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::...................::::::::::...........
<kazinsal> up until a few years ago Vancouver's train system was running on second generation SelTrac images
<heat> braille.
<zid> do you need [::1]:1
<zid> for ports in ipv6
<zid> or can you legit do ::1:1
<heat> you need them I think
<zid> omg does ipv6 support the decimal notation that ipv4 does
<zid> so I can use a giant integer for my ip
<zid> 2001^256 or whatever
<zid> 400 digits long

<mjg> there was an airport which in 2010 was still on windows 98
<mjg> i don't know what's goin on there now

<heat> erm, what
<kazinsal> so y'know if I die because the train explodes it's his fault

<heat> yes i am giving you a superior OVMF
<zid> what is ovmf
<heat> without networking
<heat> UEFI for VMs
<zid> what do I do with that
<zid> use it to boot onyx in qemu?
<heat> boot windoze in your vm
<heat> onyx works too yeah
<zid> disk space is limited btw
<heat> i know
<zid> 2G left :p
<heat> that's why I didn't download a toolchain and built onyx
<zid> where does portage live
<heat> idk
<zid> me either
<heat> i use arch, btw
<heat> holy fucking shit how deep is this clone
<zid> It used to be /usr
<zid> wtf
<zid> /var/db/repos/gentoo
<zid> there, freed up 7GB
<heat> hmm, i would scp a toolchain but i'm afraid it will be slow as shit
<mjg> what are you doing guys i have to ask
<zid> He's hacking me
<mjg> no judgment
<heat> sex
<mjg> ssh sex?
<heat> yes
<zid> why would it be slow
<mjg> must be a genz thing
<zid> cus your internet is bad?
<heat> zid, idk the clone was like 2MB/s
<mjg> you gonna run onyx on zid's stuff?
<zid> That's probably just how fast clone goes on a mech drive :P
<mjg> that definitely involves fucking someone over
<zid> fast.com gives 140Mbps in that vm
<heat> woah
<heat> ew
<heat> mechanical moment
<zid> you think I give it precious precious boot ssd space?
<heat> my mechanical hdd wasn't that slow
<heat> are you sure yours isn't dying
<zid> yea it's on my black I think so it should be okayish
<zid> git makes lots of small files though
<clever> thats what .pack files help with
<heat> hah you still have acpica-tools
<heat> from when I asked for your acpi tables
<zid> I already had it
<heat> are you secretely a efi
<zid> no
<zid> I was adding acpi to qemu
<zid> boros
<zid> so I was like, might as well look at what a table looks like
<heat> zid, get xorriso
<heat> grub-mkrescue ded
<heat> ... why is your bin and usr/bin split
<zid> why would it not be
<zid> that's what unix do
<heat> the split was deprecated like 15 years ago
<zid> why would you use xorriso or grub-mkrescue
<heat> to make an iso
<zid> but I have mkisofs?

<zid> no idea *why* it knows that, but it does, and it's useful
<heat> still doesn't work
<heat> fuggit
<heat> you get the idea
<zid> do I? idk what you did
<heat> iso.sh needs something to put the iso together
<heat> scripts/iso.sh iirc
<zid> so can I delete all this now
<zid> if you're done
<heat> kernel/vmonyx is the kernel, initrd.tar.zst is an image of the full system
<heat> no, just like I did of boros
<heat> never deleted it
<heat> s/of/for/g
<zid> that system has crippling disk space issues

gog has joined #osdev
<gog> kaichiuchi: i'm not going back there
<gog> scary place
<clever> zid: on my SE map, i added LTN, and i had a blueprint for a train station, that could both request resources (constant combinator) and supply resources (excess stuff)
<clever> i would pop one of those outposts by every ore field, and set it to request miners/belts/poles, and create another ltn station offering only ore
<clever> another mod, auto-deconstructs miners as they run out
Burgundy has joined #osdev
<gog> clever: nested blueprints?
<clever> so LTN would then recycle those miners into the next outpost
<clever> gog: just manually pasted blueprints
<gog> ah ok
<clever> one for the outpost, which had a roboport and could request materials from the core
<clever> then with SE sat nav mode, i could change the constant combinator and paste down more blueprints
<clever> and the outpost would build itself
<clever> and it could also auto-repair
<clever> each outpost also kept an artilery turret, and kept a stock of ammo, so biters where kept at a good distance
<clever> the big mess of logic circuits, interfaces with LTN, and sets up bi-directional supply&demand
<clever> the constant combinators set the required stock
<clever> and critically, the inserters can load the roboport directly from the train
<gog> ive looked at LTN and it seems interesting
<clever> so i dont have to feed it myself
<gog> yeh
<clever> just build it (even with a remote spidertron)
<clever> the train delivers robots, and the inserters populate the roboport
<clever> there is also a feature with the cargo rockets that isnt fully documented i think?
<clever> if you fire a spidertron, and contruction robots in a cargo rocket, it gets auto-deployed and loaded
<clever> upon crashing
<clever> so you can fire self-replicating spiders at every body in the game
<clever> and they can then begin building out a base
<clever> if you added recursive blueprints, it could auto-build a new import/export hub, and more miners
<gog> that's space exploration mod?
<zid> needs moar copper still
<clever> gog: yeah
<clever> gog: do you remember those warehouse mods in factorio, where its bigger on the inside?
<zid> It's using 3 sets of boilers already cus it's an isolated outpost :P
<clever> zid: oh, that reminds me, i wanted more power, so i went to a website, and grabbed a random nuclear reactor
<clever> after building it fully (took days) and looking at the map, i realized a mistake
<zid> a.. website? what?
<clever> the reactor, was 3x bigger then my base

<dinkelhacker> how do you guys configure which drivers should go in a certain build? autotools? Asking for a friend^^
<gog> clever: yeh factorissimo
<zid> all of them?
<zid> doubt many of us are fancy enough to not just do that
<clever> gog: thats using a feature in factorio where you can have multiple surfaces, and teleport freely between them
<clever> gog: SE basically just creates 2 surfaces per planet/moon, one for the surface, and one for in-orbit
<clever> and to progress thru the tech tree, you need ores that are on other bodies
<gog> ah neat
<zid> 'teleport' as in, very expensive and complicated passenger/cargo rockets
<zid> but you don't get to use bots
<zid> or mining eff
<zid> because it's behind space science
<dinkelhacker> zid: right.. and at runtime you just parse the dtb? Since I haven't implemented that I'll think I have to do some #ifdef bla
<froggey> just play seablock. no mining, no prod problems
<clever> dinkelhacker: yeah, if you parse the dtb at runtime, and have drivers for all chips, you target, then one kernel will work on all chips
<zid> froggey: I started a seablock, and decided the loop was annoying but I liked the technology, so I just played it on a normal map :D
<clever> froggey: SE core mining can do the same thing
<clever> froggey: big-ass drill, that hollows out the planet (turns power into ore)
<zid> It failed lategame though once of the recipes was unbalanced, some purple ore and aluminium came out together and I just had to trash millions of it
<clever> the ore it produces, is based on the local ore mix
<zid> also the fucking sodium hydroxide shenanigans fml
<zid> I really enjoyed piping metal fluids around rather than using belts though
<bslsk05> ​gist.github.com: pi4.dts · GitHub
<zid> that was seablock and not A+B right?
<zid> I've done A+B, seablock, krastorio, SE, etc, it's all starting to jumble together
<clever> dinkelhacker: compatible="arm,pl011"; tells you which driver to use (its a \0 seperated array of many aliases), reg= tells you the addr and size of the IO window you need to map, but the ranges= up on line 717 tells you to map 7e over to fe
<froggey> nearly done with seablock, dunno what I'll move on to next
<zid> froggey: done krastorio yet?
<froggey> nope
<zid> It's polished but not super intense
<zid> you can smash through it and enjoy it
micttyl has quit [Quit: leaving]
<froggey> lol, alright
<clever> dinkelhacker: with just basic recursion, handling of #address-cells, #size-cells, and ranges, and a compatible->driver table, you can support basically any non-dma device, with support for dma-ranges, dma devices will also work
<zid> some custom buildings and processes, but very little added bullshit
<froggey> fuck sodium hydroxide, we all hate it
<zid> SE is 1000% on the bullshit meter
<zid> sodium hydroxide is 50%
<zid> vanilla 0%, krastorio 5%
AFamousHistorian has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
<zid> krastorio is like.. bigger vanilla?
<froggey> I played SE ages ago, fucked up my base design and burned out once I got to space
<zid> I just built a cargo rocket pad
<zid> now I need.. 100 rocket parts, and none of those things are on belts yet
<zid> or in places that can be easily routed
<zid> give me my fucking booots :(
<zid> or bots, boots are also good
<clever> dinkelhacker: https://github.com/librerpi/lk-overlay/blob/master/platform/bcm28xx/platform.c#L445-L476 this can iterate over every node, but its lacking the recursion part
<bslsk05> ​github.com: lk-overlay/platform.c at master · librerpi/lk-overlay · GitHub
<dinkelhacker> clever: Thx. Thanks for the hint on the ranges. I was always confused why they put the "legacy addresses" into the dts. Btw: Is there something similar to the dtb that tells a kernel its load address?
<clever> dinkelhacker: i think the simplest way to get the load addr, is to just peek at pc, or use a pc-relative label opcode
<clever> dinkelhacker: i forget which opcode, but there is a way to just do `mov r0, foo` and put a `foo:` at the start, and if you use the right variant of the opcode, it will be stored as a pc-relative offset, not an absolute addr
<zid> who needs device trees for finding more than the busses
<clever> so it always returns the actual addr `foo:` wound up at in ram
<clever> dinkelhacker: ranges= opens up new fun, the rpi allows you to move the MMIO window to basically 63 different spaces, at 16mb increments, and by just changing the ranges= field only, i can fix the entire DTB
AFamousHistorian has joined #osdev
<dinkelhacker> interesting...
<clever> zid: yeah, you could just query the ranges and not much else, and then assume the hw is at the offsets you expect, but you will have to recreate that code on each board
<zid> the hw is on a pci-e bus or doesn't exist*
<clever> but with dtb parsing, assuming the uart clock is initialized, you could in theory boot your kernel on anything with a pl011, and get debug, without having added support for the board
<zid> what is this, 1998
<clever> zid: the gigabit ethernet on the pi4 isnt in pci-e, the uart's arent in pci-e, the 3d core isnt in pci-e
<zid> it's not my fault the pi is bad
<dinkelhacker> xD
<clever> nearly every arm device does this
<clever> a lot lack pcie entirely
<zid> It's not my fault nearly every arm device is bad either
<dinkelhacker> I was gonna ask: what IS actually in pci-e on the pi?
<heat> my cat stole my chair again
<heat> see you tomorrow
<clever> dinkelhacker: the pi4 has a single pcie lane, that goes to the vl805 pcie<->usb3 controller
foudfou_ has joined #osdev
<clever> you can get the vl805 in a pcie card format, for desktop use, those have 4 x usb3 ports
<clever> but the pi4 is wired up as 2 x usb2 + 2 x usb3
<clever> i dont think pcie 1x has enough bandwidth to drive all 4 at once, at usb3 speeds
foudfou has quit [Ping timeout: 255 seconds]
<dinkelhacker> clever: that's good to know. I'll hope it will help me the day I'll try to hook up a keyboard to my "os"
<clever> dinkelhacker: the pi4 has 3 usb controllers you can pick from
<clever> the crusty old dwc2 usb controller from past models, is still present, and routed to the usb-c port
<heat> doesn't the cm4 even have nvme?
<clever> so you can do both host and device roles
<clever> heat: the cm4 just exposes that 1x pcie lane, the official IO board gives you a standard pcie slot, the user can then add nvme if they want to
<clever> the firmware also supports booting from nvme, but only if its directly on that 1x lane
<clever> pcie expanders break the firmware bootloader
<dinkelhacker> clever: so the usb ports are controllable through either of them o.O? Is it somehow muxed or how does it work?
<clever> dinkelhacker: but if you add otg_mode=1 to config.txt, youll instead get a broadcom xhci controller, host only, on the usb-c port
<clever> the dwc2, and the broadcom xhci, share the usb-c port with an internal mux
<clever> the main 4 type-a ports, are exclusively for the vl805
<clever> the broadcom xhci has better cpu usage, but is host only
<clever> the dwc2 has worse cpu usage, but can do both host and device
<clever> the vl805 is also xhci, so you could drive both the usb-c and the usb-a's with a single xhci driver, giving you 5 ports total
Ameisen has quit [Quit: Quitting]
<clever> and qemu also has xhci, both emulated i believe, and pcie forwarding from your host
<clever> so you can prepare for xhci far more easily
<clever> and the docs are freely available
<clever> the dwc2 docs, arent freely available
Ameisen has joined #osdev
<dinkelhacker> gottcha! xhci it is! :)
<clever> you also really want to respect dtb, when talking to the broadcom xhci
<clever> if you dont set otg_mode=1, and try to poke the broadcom xhci, the whole system just locks up hard
<clever> otg_mode=1 updates the dtb, to tell you its safe to poke it
<dinkelhacker> That's really valuable information. Thx alot!
<clever> the vl805 xhci is missing from dtb, you discover it via standard pcie enumeration
<clever> the dtb instead tells you how to setu the pcie controller
<clever> the mux, to switch between dwc and xhci, is also undocumented

<dinkelhacker> okay so let me recap. you set that in config.txt, that will give me 1x xhci on the usb-c and 4x on the usb-a's. All host only?
<clever> yep
<dinkelhacker> Cool!
<clever> the usb-c port is also usb2 speeds max
<clever> dinkelhacker: from memory, you setup 2 rings (master in and out) in ram, and you put the address of them into some MMIO in the xhci, then all master commands are done by appending to the ring, and whacking a doorbell
<clever> the xhci controller will then read the ring in ram, and perform each action
<clever> there are then many layers of rings, for each port, and endpoint, and the master ring is used to set those up

<dinkelhacker> ring = ring buffer?
<clever> yeah
<clever> each command in the ring, has an is-valid bool, but 1 is not always valid
<clever> the "valid" state changes, on each loop around the ring
<clever> and the last command in the ring, is a special goto, that jumps to the start, and inverts what state is "valid"
<clever> so all old commands in the ring, become invalid, until you overwrite them with new ones
<zid> yeaa it should just flip the valid bit
<clever> thats a nice trick, that lets you reuse the ring, without having to pre-clear ahead of where the xhci is reading
<zid> until you get out of sync on what thing valid is due to a race condition
<zid> and fuck it all
<clever> or a hardware bug in the xhci controller causes a fifo to overflow, and it doesnt reset the read pointer correctly
<clever> so it repeats the last 512 bytes worth of data
<dinkelhacker> I'll have to store the logs of this somewhere for reference once I'll get there^^
<zid> YOu may have noticed, but clever likes to take a topic and just run with it and info dump
<zid> if he happens to know about something related
<clever> let the flood gates open!
<dinkelhacker> I highly appreciate that!^^
<dinkelhacker> (Although I don't understand everything just now)
<zid> Someone say tetra or stack or something
<zid> I need to write a 20 page essay on tetris
<GeDaMo> For why, zid, for why? :|
<zid> GeDaMo: So I can educate dinkelhacker ofc
<clever> bbl

<vin> How is everyone holding up today? Seems like a bleak winter
<sham1> It's great! Not so annoying to get around when compared to years with loads of snow. Also keeps the electricity costs (relatively) down alongside gas demand
