[PATCH v4 0/7] coresight: enable debug module




ARMv8 architecture reference manual (ARM DDI 0487A.k) Chapter H7 "The
Sample-based Profiling Extension" has description for sampling
registers, we can utilize these registers to check program counter
value with combined CPU exception level, secure state, etc. So this is
helpful for CPU lockup bugs, e.g. if one CPU has run into infinite loop
with IRQ disabled; the 'hang' CPU cannot switch context and handle any
interrupt, so it cannot handle SMP call for stack dump, etc.

This patch series is to enable coresight debug module with sample-based
registers and register call back notifier for PCSR register dumping
when panic happens, so we can see below dumping info for panic; and
this patch series has considered the conditions for access permission
for debug registers self, so this can avoid access debug registers when
CPU power domain is off; the driver also try to figure out the CPU is
in secure or non-secure state.

Patch 0001 is to document the dt binding.

Patch 0002 is used to fix the func of_get_coresight_platform_data()
doesn't properly drop the reference to the CPU node pointer; and
patch 0003 is refactor to add new function of_coresight_get_cpu().

Patch 0004 is the driver for CPU debug module, which is Based on
patches 0002/0003.

Patches 0005/0006 in this series are to enable debug unit on 96boards
Hikey, patch 0005 is to add apb clock for debug unit and patch 0006
is to add DT nodes for debug unit. Patch 0007 is to enable debug on
96boards DB410c. Have verified on both two boards.

As result we can get below log after input command:
echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger:

ARM external debug module:

Changes from v3:
* Added Suzuki K Poulose's patch to fix issue for the func
  of_get_coresight_platform_data() doesn't properly drop the reference
  to the CPU node pointer.
* According to Suzuki suggestion, added code to handl the corner case
  for ARMv8 CPU with aarch32 mode.
* According to Suzuki suggestion, changed compatible string to
  "arm,coresight-cpu-debug".
* According to Mathieu suggestion, added "power-domains" as optional
  properties.

Changes from v2:
* According to Mathieu Poirier suggestion, applied some minor fixes.
* Added two extra patches for enabling debug module on Hikey.

Changes from v1:
* According to Mike Leach suggestion, removed the binding for debug
  module clocks which have been directly provided by CPU clocks.
* According to Mathieu Poirier suggestion, added function
  of_coresight_get_cpu() and some minor refactors for debug module
  driver.

Changes from RFC:
* According to Mike Leach suggestion, added check for EDPRSR to avoid
  lockup; added supporting EDVIDSR and EDCIDSR registers.
* According to Mark Rutland and Mathieu Poirier suggestion, rewrote
  the documentation for DT binding.
* According to Mark and Mathieu suggestion, refined debug driver.
