You can do a trick like we do for adding the caches to the CPU. Add all of the objects to a member that begins with an underscore and then have a connectAllSouthBridge() function that makes all the connections. Ali On Aug 20, 2008, at 10:20 PM, Gabe Black wrote: I'm working on breaking

Why not have an keep the SouthBridge in the hierarchy to manage the pieces while having them all directly connect to the bus. This seems like a lot of work to get rid of a SimObject in C++ that won't be doing much. Ali On Aug 21, 2008, at 4:46 PM, [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: I don't think

[m5-dev] forward declaration typedef

Is there a way to forward declare a typedef? We used PacketPtr and RequestPtr all over the place in header files which requires including packet.hh and request.hh. However, in many cases the only reason we need to include the header files is because of the typedef. Ali

PacketPtr and PacketReq aren't reference counting. We just starting using them incase we wanted reference counting pointers. Looking at the code we do a reasonably job of using PacketPtr everywhere, but RequestPtr is used maybe 40% of the time. Ali On Aug 24, 2008, at 3:20 PM, Gabe Black
