158 Adding de2_115_board port, thanks to Richard Hasha.

Support to JSP (JTAG Serial Port) working well. Also provided by Richard Hasha.

Different interconnect configurations per board are not straightforward on MinSoC. New added modules or definitions for addresses have to be carried over to other boards. Furthermore, extra modules can be shared among all projects. Thus, it is better to have this centralized:
-Removing interconnect configuration from minsoc_defines.v. There is an interconnect_defines.v file on rtl/verilog. The software counterpart is interconnect.h on sw/drivers.

Including a jsp firmware. It is basically the uart firmware but using JSP instead. Added to all board configure scripts to be compiled on configuration.

prj/srcs extended to include jsp and interconnec_defines.v.

spartan3e_starter_kit_eth lost UART (does not fit) and uses JSP instead now.

64 firmware makefiles:
-every firmware makefile has now complete dependency. This also includes dependency on files under minsoc/backend (target specific files). That means, that if some target specific header changes, the support library dependent on it will be compiled. That will always happen, even if you compile the uart firmware. In other words, if you want to use uart firmware, you can always simply compile uart by issuing make all. If anything has changed, backend files, support library, drivers, it will update everything for you.
-TODO: dependency can be automatic created by using make together with gcc. Use it instead of declaring all dependencies manually.

Makefile system for synthesis:
-the dependency for every implementation step has been checked and is working fine.
-Makefile plus support files have been moved to minsoc/syn/src
-make usage is still under syn through files generated by backend bashscripts
Backend:
-files under backend are target specific files used for the system to work
-firmware compilation
-system simulation
-system implementation
-This directory is populated by visiting one of its subdirectories and typing ./configure

backend/spartan3a_dsp_kit:
-working on FPGA

backend/spartan3e_starter_kit:
-has to be tested

backend/ml509:
-missing files have to be copied and adapted, configure script has to be copied and adapted

backend/std:
-include files necessary for firmware compilation and system configuration
-it does not include files for synthesis and is not synthesizable

63 Adding a functional synthesis Makefile system. Still needs a reviews and enhancements, but at least it is something. rfajardo 3125d 13h /minsoc_defines.v
58 Standard definitions depended on implementation order. Now, this should be solved.

minsoc_bench_defines.v: when setting reset to be positive (`define POSITIVE_RESET), NEGATIVE_RESET is undefined. This override the implementation order, so that independent of it, POSITIVE_RESET will be used.

minsoc_defines.v: when setting GENERIC_FPGA, FPGA_TAP and FPGA_CLOCK_DIVISION are undefined. This way, even if FPGA_TAP would come prior to GENERIC_TAP on the correspondent implementation, GENERIC_TAP would still be selected.

IMPORTANT: GENERIC_MEMORY must still be implemented first on minsoc_onchip_ram.v, because FPGA's memory is automatically selected from other definitions and cannot be undefined a priori. Since some other memory types can be selected, there is no trivial solution. However, this shouldn't be a big problem, since the beginning of this file will probably not be modified.
rfajardo 3126d 09h /minsoc_defines.v
57 If a FPGA manufacturer is selected, the FPGA families of other manufacturers are automatically ignored.

Some updated to comments.

CLOCK_DIVISOR back to 5. The number does not matter much, but 1 is a bad standard number, since it should never be selected. Comment says, use NO_CLOCK_DIVISION instead.

Changing standard FPGA back to Xilinx and Spartan3A. I'm only doing this because the synthesis examples page of wiki still assume this FPGA to be standardly selected.

56 Macros for all Altera family devices and pll instantiation javieralso 3133d 08h /minsoc_defines.v
52 Altera ALTPLL Megafunction Instantiation javieralso 3143d 10h /minsoc_defines.v
20 minsoc_defines.v had a semicolon at the end of the two reset polarity definitions.

minsoc_top had a signal array for two different signals which was for backward compatibility. The compatible debugging module is so old that there is no reason for keeping it.

Documentation has been updated to better explain how to use the definitions files, minsoc_defines.v and or1200_defines.v. An example for Altera devices has been added too.

7 Some changes:
-wb_cabs removed from minsoc_top.v and minsoc_tc_top.v
-added reset polarity control to minsoc_defines.v through:
-POSITIVE_RESET
-NEGATIVE_RESET
-minsoc_onchip_ram_top.v does not use
minsoc_onchip_ram.v oe signals (output enable) anymore,
which are implemented as tristate buffers. Now
minsoc_onchip_ram_top.v has a generated MUX, which
has an arbitrary number of inputs and 1 output.
Input are the internal output of the onchip_rams,
output the wb_dat_o.
