+Purpose:
+Demonstrate the usage of the DELL_RBU (DELL Remote BIOS Update) driver
+for updating BIOS images on Dell hardware.
+
+Scope:
+This document discusses the functionality of the DELL_RBU driver.
+This driver is required by BIOS update applications shipped by DELL for updating
+BIOS on DELL servers and client systems.
+
+Overview:
+The rbu driver is designed to be running on 2.6 kernel.
+This driver is one single dell_rbu.c file (approx 800 lines total).
+This driver utilizes the hotplug interface for downloading the BIOS update image
+in the contiguous or packetized memory depending upon the update type.
+The BIOS then scans the memory to find the image and will then update itself.
+There are basically two different mechanisms for writing the BIOS image in to
+contiguous memory
+1> By writing the image to one monolithic chunk of contiguous physical memory.
+2> By writing image in to smaller packet chunks of contiguous physical memory.
+The update mechanism is determined by the update application based on the
+particular system type.
+
+Update mechanism using single physical chunk of memory:
+The rbu driver on its load time created the following entries in sysfs
+/sys/firmware/dell_rbu/monolithic/mono_name
+/sys/firmware/dell_rbu/monolithic/mono_size
+/sys/firmware/dell_rbu/packetized/packet_name
+/sys/firmware/dell_rbu/packetized/packet_size
+
+Steps to update the BIOS image:
+
+1> Copy the image file in to /lib/firmware
+2> echo the image name in to /sys/firmware/dell_rbu/xxxx/xxxx_name
+
+This will generate a hotplug event and the data form the image file is
+transferred to the memory.
+Here xxxx stands for the type of BIOS update mechanism chosen by choosing
+monolitich the image is copied to contiguous physical pages and by choosing
+the mechanism as packetized the image is treated as one single packet and the
+packet size is set to the first packet image size. If a new image packet of
+different size form the previous is copied then all the previous packets are
+freed and this packet's size is treated as new packet size.
+
+On a driver unload all the allocated memory is freed.
+The user should not unload the driver after downloading the new BIOS image
+if it wants to update BIOS with that image.
+The user can overwrite the previously loaded monolithich image by echoing a
+new file name string to /sys/firmware/dell_rbu/monolithic/mono_name. Make sure
+the file is present in /lib/firmware. If the image size is more than
+previous image then the previous image is freed and the new alocation is made.
+
+The user can know of a successful allocation by readind the size files.
+cat /sys/firmware/dell_rbu/monolithic/mono_size
+
+Update using smaller chunks (packets) of contiguous memory:
+The disadvantage of contiguous allocation is that it may not be always possible
+to get that size of contiuguous chunk of avaliable physical pages as in most
+Linux systems the memory gets fragmented immideately after a reboot.
+The update using smaller chunks fixes this issue; it also requires the BIOS on
+the system to support this feature; the update application needs to query this
+with the BIOS on the system before using this technique.
+
+
+NOTE:
+Afte updating the BIOS image the appplication needs to communicate with the BIOS
+for enabling the update on the next reboot. The application can then choose to
+reboot the system imideately or not reboot the system and leave up to the user
+to do a reboot.

+ * Remote BIOS Update (rbu) driver is used for updating DELL BIOS by creating
+ * entries in the /sys file systems on Linux 2.6 and higher kernels.
+ * It uses the hotplug interface for getting the image in to memory.
+ * The driver supports two mechanism to update the BIOS namely contiguous and
+ * packetized. Both these methods still require having some application to set
+ * the CMOS bit indicating the BIOS to update itself after a reboot.
+ * In both the methods the image file name needs to be specified for hotplugging
+ * the image file.
+ *
+ * Contiguous method:
+ * This driver writes the incoming data in a monolithic image by allocating
+ * contiguous physical pages large enough to accommodate the incoming BIOS image
+ * size.
+ *
+ * Packetized method:
+ * The driver writes the incoming packet image by allocating a new packet on
+ * every time the packet image name is written.
+ * This driver requires an application to break the BIOS image in to fixed sized
+ * packet chunks and each packet is written as a hotplug image.
