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.

149 Merging differences of release candidate 1.0 revision 140:148 with trunk. rfajardo 3336d 19h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
141 Merging with rc-1.0 revision 140. I doubt rc-1.0 will still change much in the last days. rfajardo 3342d 19h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
80 Establishing a better Makefile system for firmwares. rfajardo 3437d 18h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
74 or1200.h includes a CLABLE macro which uses __USER_LABEL_PREFIX__(from compiler defined macro) to find out if we need the underscore as prefix to reference C functions (its assembly labels) or not.

except.S and reset.S use CLABLE to call externally defined C functions.

This should avoid problems compiling firmware with old or new toolchain.

support/ updated, reset-nocache.o and reset-icdc.o are dependent on or1200.h

69 backend update:
Both files should now be under minsoc/backend to proper system functionality.
backend subdirectories have been given those files. Configure script updated accordingly.

They are searched there from system scripts and Makefiles.
-sim/bin/minsoc_verilog_files.txt has the files for Icarus Verilog, minsoc_bench_defines.v is now referenced from backend directory.
-sw/support/ now references to inside backend.

-It is the system configuration for Spartan 3E Starter Kit with Ethernet.

65 Files missing in the last commit.
sw: eth, uart and driver Makefiles
rfajardo 3545d 17h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
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
-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

-working on FPGA

-has to be tested

-missing files have to be copied and adapted, configure script has to be copied and adapted

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

61 Removing supposely defined external function, which don't exist anymore. rfajardo 3549d 20h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
55 Adjusting Makefiles to compile correctly with new firmware updates.

1) except.o not included into libsupport.a.
2) libsupport.a linked to except.o, now in correct order: ld libsupport.a except.o -o executable (not the other way around)
3) int.c was not being compiled because of a #ifdef which is not set anywhere

54 Moving spr_defs.h to or1200.h ConX. 3558d 17h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
53 Indentation, deleting redundant files and adding externals ConX. 3558d 18h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
51 sw/support/uart.c: Changing the order of writes to the Divisor Latch of UART. (Thanks Ramkumar) rfajardo 3573d 21h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
50 Removing unused firmware files, respective to or1ksim actually.

Removing the inclusion of the removed file mc.h in reset.S, probably required by or1ksim at some point.

Reworked except.S to use a macro instead of repeating the same procedure 16 times or so. Explanation added to the macro as a leading comment.

47 Firmware updated to work with gcc-4.5. It is actually working just fine and gcc-4.5 assembly code seems a lot cleaner.

I noticed that by increasing the free stack space for the interrupt handler by 130 made the resulting firmware not work. I assume it is because 130 is not aligned 130%4 = 2 and the stack simply does not work then. Instead I'm freeing the previous 116 plus 128 (for 32 registers as mentioned by Jeremy) and it works.

39 FAQ:
-Adv_jtag_bridge self test fails?
-included now SoC flow mistakes
-forgetting to upload the bitfile
-leaving clock unconnected
-older information is now under "Known Issues" right below of SoC flow mistakes

-eth: included eth.h is from drivers and not from this directory. eth.h from this directory is old and has been removed.
-uart: included uart.h is from drivers and not from this directory. uart.h from this directory is old and has been removed.
rfajardo 3665d 07h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
38 Small update to HOWTO: advices now to also include the ucf (pinout) file, for forgetful people :-).

FAQ: Added another option (hint) as a solution for people with on-board Xilinx USB cables, which do not reset.

uart.c: now uses the IRQ line definition instead of the line number directly.
rfajardo 3700d 06h /minsoc/trunk/sw/
37 README.txt added, describing the installation and set-up processes. Also describing to use the FAQ or forum when you have problems and finally to read minsoc.pdf (the documentation) to understand the system after everything works, to know what to do next.

Clean-up of sw/utils, removing unused sources and files.

Update of sw/drivers/eth.c, direct casting to avoid compile warnings.

FAQ extended and with more links to the threads giving the solutions.

Synthesis examples inform that the firmware tweak for Spartan3E Starter Kit using Ethernet only works for system version up to 35.

minsoc.pdf and webpage now uses FPGA generic and specific codes instead of FPGA independent and dependent codes, because it suits it better.

36 utils: -adding a 32 to 8 bit Wishbone bridge to connect 8 bit modules to the MinSoC interconnect.
-adding a Linux driver for parallel cables for the adv_jtag_bridge. It circumvents the necessity of privilege to run adv_jtag_bridge with cables xpc3 and xess.

sw/support: support library has been made completely standalone. That means, it is now independent from uClib and/or newlib. Thanks to Wojciech A. Koszek for his contribution on this.

sw/drivers: a driver library has been included, which supply drivers for the OpenRISC timer; and for UART, Ethernet, I2C, and CAN modules from OpenCores.

sw/uart and sw/eth: they don't provide code to control the UART and Ethernet controllers anymore. They use the drivers library instead.

-FAQ extended:
-table of contents
-explanation of how to use the 32 to 8 bit Wishbone bridge
-how to make adv_jtag_bridge work without privilege requirement for xess or xpc3
-explanation of locking problem of xpc_usb cable
-explanation of what to do if the cable is built on-board
-patching of gdb only required if version is 6.8, explanation on FAQ now.
-instruct to compile drivers library
-remove line numbers information on what to edit, better leave it to be found only by the informed context.
-adv_jtag_bridge execution now without 'sudo'. Note included that 'sudo' is required for Linux and xess or xpc3. Reference to FAQ to avoid this requirement.

11 External interrupt processing was being run multiple times because:
-external level interrupts have to be cleared
-internal interrupt status register has to be cleared
Since internal interrupt status register was being cleared before external level interrupts clearance, these internal interrupt status was being overwritten inbetween.

-move status register reset to end of interrupt handler instead of beginning.

Testbench signal uart_srx initialized now.
