[Buildroot] [PATCH for-next v4 3/3] board: Add Kontron SMARC-sAL28 support

Michael Walle michael at walle.cc
Mon Jun 1 15:17:01 UTC 2020

Now that upstream supports this board add buildroot support for it, too.

This supports:
 - latest upstream linux kernel. Since the support for this board and
   its SoC is still in active development, we want to follow the
   upstream kernel releases for now.
 - building an image which can be installed to eMMC, SD card or USB
   thumb drive.
 - upstream u-boot patches are pending, therefore no support for
   building a bootloader for now.

Changes since v3:
 - removed custom kernel version, instead use the latest 5.7 kernel

Changes since v2:
 - added udev rules 71-smarc-networking.rules, to rename the network
   interfaces according to the SMARC specification.
 - removed arm-smmu.disable_bypass=n kernel paramter, since the real fix is
   now upstream and will be included in 5.7
 - use full path in PARTUUID="$($HOST_DIR/bin/uuidgen)" to be sure we are
   using our own uuidgen
 - mention fdtfile in readme.txt
 - fixed typo in readme.txt
 - mention non-working network with vendor's bootloader in readme.txt

Changes since v1:
 - added readme.txt
 - changed from u-boot boot script to extlinux.conf booting
 - enable eudev and added udev rules to properly name network interfaces
   CONFIG_FSL_ENETC_QOS and iproute2, as this it the main feature of this
 - added var2 device tree
 - generate PARTUUID in post-build.sh to be able to use the resulting image
   on any block device which the board supports for booting
 - (keep post-build.sh for consistency reasons)

+Kontron SMARC-sAL28
+How to build it
+Configure Buildroot:
+  $ make kontron_smarc_sal28_defconfig
+Change settings to fit your needs (optional):
+  $ make menuconfig
+Compile everything and build the rootfs image:
+  $ make
+Copying the image to a storage device
+Buildroot builds an image which can be written to the internal eMMC
+storage, a SD card or an USB thumb drive. You can use the following
+command on your host:
+  $ sudo dd if=output/images/sdcard-emmc.img of=/dev/sdx bs=1M
+Where /dev/sdx is the corresponding block device of your SD card or USB
+thumb drive. To flash it on your internal eMMC use the following command on
+the board:
+  # dd if=sdcard-emmc.img of=/dev/mmcblk1 bs=1M
+Be sure you have not booted from the internal eMMC in this case!
+Booting the board
+By default the bootloader will search for the first valid image, starting
+with the internal eMMC. Consult the vendor documentation on how to use the
+DIP switches to select specific boot devices. To use the bootloader
+environment set the boot_targets correspondingly. E.g.:
+  # setenv boot_targets usb0
+To boot from an USB thumb drive.
+The device tree is loaded according to the filename in fdtfile. The
+following command will set the default device tree, which works on almost
+all variants (with less features of course):
+  # setenv fdtfile freescale/fsl-ls1028a-kontron-sl28.dtb
+Set this to a device tree which fits your board variant.
+Connect your serial cable to SER1 and open your favorite terminal emulation
+program (baudrate 115200, 8n1). E.g.:
+  $ picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0
+You will get a warning reported by fdisk when you examine the SD card.
+This is because the genimage.cfg file doesn't specify the SD card size
+(as people will naturally have different sized cards), so the
+secondary GPT header is placed after the rootfs rather than at the end
+of the disk where it is expected to be.
+You will see something like this at boot time:
+[    4.552797] GPT:Primary header thinks Alt. header is not at the end of the disk.
+[    4.560237] GPT:266272 != 7864319
+[    4.563565] GPT:Alternate GPT header not at the end of the disk.
+[    4.569596] GPT:266272 != 7864319
+[    4.572925] GPT: Use GNU Parted to correct GPT errors.
+What does not work
+For reasons unknown, the network card doesn't work if you use the original
+vendor bootloader. Board support patches for upstream u-boot are currently
+pending. Stay tuned.
