BTW, is there plan to move 4.4 kernel?
I think so. I'd like leave this question to John or Amit to answer.
The Reference Platform is already on 4.4 with the 16.03 release. So now we just need to make sure it works with u-boot. It was only tested with UEFI for 16.03 but u-boot-support is planned for 16.06.
Some updates for uboot booting on Hikey:
- I tried below images, which can boot successfully with uboot: ARM-TF: https://github.com/96boards/arm-trusted-firmware.git, branch: hikey U-BOOT: git://git.denx.de/u-boot.git KERNEL: https://github.com/96boards-hikey/linux; branch: hikey-mainline-rebase
I also tried above combination and it can boot well. But it still has some issues:
- multi cpus still can come online
Can boot 8 cpus at my side.
- The defconfig has no emmc support and doesn't detect the emmc.
Could you share me with your kernel config against this branch? BTW: do you know what difference between branch 96b/releases/2016.03 and hikey-mainline-rebase? I found hikey-mainline-rebase is more stable than 96b/releases/2016.03 when booting with u-boot. For hikey-mainline-rebase, it can boot to mount initrd. And for 96b/releases/2016.03, it hangs at somewhere.
I can run into emmc's rootfs. Firstly burn filesystem as usual , Then directly use uboot's bootargs "root=/dev/mmcblk0p9", kernel can boot into rootfs. I don't use initrd.
If I change to use kernel branch 4.1 for android, then cannot boot:
ARM-TF: https://github.com/96boards/arm-trusted-firmware.git, branch: hikey U-BOOT: git://git.denx.de/u-boot.git KERNEL: https://github.com/96boards-hikey/linux; branch: android-hikey-linaro-4.1
When jump from uboot to kernel, there have no output. I also checked has enabled earlycon. So Amit, John, do you have any suggestion for this?
I cannot reproduce Liming's panic;
panic only happens on 3.18, just as mentioned in my first mail. You can try “https://github.com/96boards-hikey/linux tag 96boards-hikey-15.11"
Like has a potential issue. Will first resolve uboot's overwritting dtb issue.
Thanks, Leo Yan
