SH Question

Hi Ralf,

First. Happy new year.

All of this that you says has been supossed by myself.

I don't want to disturb you if my sugesstions can do it.

The real life with the embedded programing is a litlte bit more
complicated that the EVB.

The first step with new boards is set the leds onboard. After
makes a "console" device to give the life at the board.

Can anybody think in a BSP without "console" to start a board?

I have usually one serial port like "liason" with the world.

I need implement a network serial protocol because I need transfer memory,
spy the "kernel" and open remote consoles into the new board.
All in the same link at the same time.

After of this I can run the new devices.

At the end I can stop the /dev/console device.
But always I let a DEBUG flag directed to console in all the modules.

The RTEMS BSP generic are for general purpose but a real purpose.

I have an developement with 8 interrupts every 250 usecs each one.
Can I think to use sh_set_irq_priority() to lock each interruput every time?

I think better about

 * ****************************************
 * INTC Programming
 * ****************************************

typedef struct {
 unsigned char _IRQ0:4;
 unsigned char _IRQ1:4;
 unsigned char _IRQ2:4;
 unsigned char _IRQ3:4;
 unsigned short ___:16;

#define INTC_IPRA_IRQ0	 (((volatile TIPRA *)(INTC_IPRA))->_IRQ0)
#define INTC_IPRA_IRQ1	 (((volatile TIPRA *)(INTC_IPRA))->_IRQ1)
#define INTC_IPRA_IRQ2	 (((volatile TIPRA *)(INTC_IPRA))->_IRQ2)
#define INTC_IPRA_IRQ3	 (((volatile TIPRA *)(INTC_IPRA))->_IRQ3)

 * Priority Level IRQ's for an easy use.

#define PL_IRQ0        INTC_IPRA_IRQ0
#define PL_IRQ1        INTC_IPRA_IRQ1
#define PL_IRQ2        INTC_IPRA_IRQ2
#define PL_IRQ3        INTC_IPRA_IRQ3

#define LV_IRQ0        8

PL_IRQ0=0;        /* LOCK THE IRQ */

Can you imaginate


runnig in a too busy system?

If I want a real software is necesary build a real software not academic.

Which is the final objectif for RTEMS? Build a real robust and stable

/dev/console is a "necesary" device in the real developements.

Multics was a wonderful OS but UNIX was the final implementation.

 * /dev/console for Hitachi SH 703X
 * The SH doesn't have a designated console device. Therefore we "alias"
 * another device as /dev/console and revector all calls to /dev/console
 * to this device.
 * This approach is similar to installing a sym-link from one device to
 * another device. If rtems once will support sym-links for devices files,
 * this implementation could be dropped.
 *  Author: Ralf Corsepius (corsepiu at faw.uni-ulm.de)

Now, The moment to drop this implementation and update the software.

Why don't have a termios console with the sci ports?

We can run all the termios software already developped in RTEMS sh

If we have a null driver and we make a link to device console all your
problem is resolved.

All the debug output is redirected to dummy.

The best solution for evolution is build a new version in beta phase.
Put it to discuss and make a alfa version.
I think that it is your opinion based in your comments.

Best regards.
