[PATCH 6/8] powerpc: Implement kexec_file_load.

2016-06-11 Thread Thiago Jung Bauermann
Adds the machinery needed by kexec_file_load, except actually loading a kernel and initrd. elf64_apply_relocate_add was extended to support relative symbols. This is necessary because before relocation, the module loading mechanism adjusts Elf64_Sym.st_value to point to the absolute memory

[PATCH 3/8] powerpc: Factor out relocation code from module_64.c to elf_util_64.c.

2016-06-11 Thread Thiago Jung Bauermann
The kexec_file_load system call needs to relocate the purgatory, so factor out the module relocation code so that it can be shared. This patch's purpose is to move the ELF relocation logic from apply_relocate_add to elf_util_64.c with as few changes as possible. The following changes were needed:

[PATCH 2/8] kexec_file: Generalize kexec_add_buffer.

2016-06-11 Thread Thiago Jung Bauermann
Allow architectures to specify different memory walking functions for kexec_add_buffer. Intel uses iomem to track reserved memory ranges, but PowerPC uses the memblock subsystem. Also, factor kexec_locate_mem_hole out of kexec_add_buffer. It will be used by the PowerPC kexec_file_load

[PATCH 4/8] powerpc: Generalize elf64_apply_relocate_add.

2016-06-11 Thread Thiago Jung Bauermann
When apply_relocate_add is called, modules are already loaded at their final location in memory so Elf64_Shdr.sh_addr can be used for accessing the section contents as well as the base address for relocations. This is not the case for kexec's purgatory, because it will only be copied to its final

This purgatory implementation comes from kexec-tools, almost unchanged. The only changes were that the sha256_regions global variable was renamed to sha_regions to match what kexec_file_load expects, and to use the sha256.c file from x86's purgatory to avoid adding yet another SHA-256

[PATCH v2 2/6] powerpc: kexec_file: Add buffer hand-over support for the next kernel
