Hi,

Good to see this patch!

What are the main things preventing this from moving to the generic
platform? Is it mainly the use of EVA (which generic doesn't yet
support)?

Please can you describe (maybe with a table) the segment layout in human
readable terms so the reader doesn't need to decode the SegCtl registers
to understand where everything is in the virtual address space?

This needs updating to obj-$(CONFIG_BUILTIN_DTB) as per commit
fca3aa166422 ("MIPS: dts: Avoid unneeded built-in.a in DTS dirs") in
linux-next.

You can use obj-y, since this Makefile is only included if
CONFIG_INTEL_MIPS=y (i.e. via the platform-$(CONFIG_INTEL_MIPS) below).

Also please split each file onto separate "obj-y += whatever.o" lines.

^^^ (this is what ensures the Makefile is only included for this
platform)

Worth having get_c0_fdc_int() too for the "Fast Debug Channel"?

The _END ones seem to be unused?

Please describe the boot register protocol in the commit message and/or
a comment in this function.

Is it compatible with the UHI boot protocol, such that this could
potentially be converted to use the generic platform in future?

That sounds a big risky. Software coherency will I think perform cache
line invalidation when syncing buffers from device to CPU (see
__dma_sync_virtual), so that the underlying RAM written by the
supposedly incoherent DMA is visible. If its coherent afterall then it
may be sat in a dirty line in the cache, and not have been written back
to RAM yet before it gets invalidated?

Redundant check. unflatten_and_copy_device_tree() now handles that and
emits a message.

Please put this at the top of the file with other #defines.

Preferably each line of asm should end \n\t and the final line doesn't
need \n or \t. Look at the .s compiler output to see the difference.

Hmm, it'd be nice to abstract this in mipsregs.h, but that can always
wait. You could use MIPS_HWR_CCRES though (i.e. off top of my head
something like "%0, $%1\n" and have a "i" (MIPS_HWR_CCRES) input.

I don't think you strictly need an early clobber there since there are
no register inputs, "=r" should do fine.

I don't think that operation clobbers any memory?
