2019-12-20spm: Remove SPM Alpha 1 prototype and support filesPaul Beesley
The Secure Partition Manager (SPM) prototype implementation is being removed. This is preparatory work for putting in place a dispatcher component that, in turn, enables partition managers at S-EL2 / S-EL1. This patch removes: - The core service files (std_svc/spm) - The Resource Descriptor headers (include/services) - SPRT protocol support and service definitions - SPCI protocol support and service definitions Change-Id: Iaade6f6422eaf9a71187b1e2a4dffd7fb8766426 Signed-off-by: Paul Beesley <paul.beesley@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Artsem Artsemenka <artsem.artsemenka@arm.com>
2019-01-04Sanitise includes across codebaseAntonio Nino Diaz
Enforce full include path for includes. Deprecate old paths. The following folders inside include/lib have been left unchanged: - include/lib/cpus/${ARCH} - include/lib/el3_runtime/${ARCH} The reason for this change is that having a global namespace for includes isn't a good idea. It defeats one of the advantages of having folders and it introduces problems that are sometimes subtle (because you may not know the header you are actually including if there are two of them). For example, this patch had to be created because two headers were called the same way: e0ea0928d5b7 ("Fix gpio includes of mt8173 platform to avoid collision."). More recently, this patch has had similar problems: 46f9b2c3a282 ("drivers: add tzc380 support"). This problem was introduced in commit 4ecca33988b9 ("Move include and source files to logical locations"). At that time, there weren't too many headers so it wasn't a real issue. However, time has shown that this creates problems. Platforms that want to preserve the way they include headers may add the removed paths to PLAT_INCLUDES, but this is discouraged.

2018-07-11Add end_vector_entry assembler macroRoberto Vargas
Check_vector_size checks if the size of the vector fits in the size reserved for it. This check creates problems in the Clang assembler. A new macro, end_vector_entry, is added and check_vector_size is deprecated. This new macro fills the current exception vector until the next exception vector. If the size of the current vector is bigger than 32 instructions then it gives an error. Change-Id: Ie8545cf1003a1e31656a1018dd6b4c28a4eaf671 Signed-off-by: Roberto Vargas <roberto.vargas@arm.com>
2017-11-08SPM: Introduce Secure Partition ManagerAntonio Nino Diaz
A Secure Partition is a software execution environment instantiated in S-EL0 that can be used to implement simple management and security services. Since S-EL0 is an unprivileged exception level, a Secure Partition relies on privileged firmware e.g. ARM Trusted Firmware to be granted access to system and processor resources. Essentially, it is a software sandbox that runs under the control of privileged software in the Secure World and accesses the following system resources: - Memory and device regions in the system address map. - PE system registers. - A range of asynchronous exceptions e.g. interrupts. - A range of synchronous exceptions e.g. SMC function identifiers. A Secure Partition enables privileged firmware to implement only the absolutely essential secure services in EL3 and instantiate the rest in a partition. Since the partition executes in S-EL0, its implementation cannot be overly complex. The component in ARM Trusted Firmware responsible for managing a Secure Partition is called the Secure Partition Manager (SPM). The SPM is responsible for the following: - Validating and allocating resources requested by a Secure Partition. - Implementing a well defined interface that is used for initialising a Secure Partition. - Implementing a well defined interface that is used by the normal world and other secure services for accessing the services exported by a Secure Partition. - Implementing a well defined interface that is used by a Secure Partition to fulfil service requests. - Instantiating the software execution environment required by a Secure Partition to fulfil a service request.
