Subject[RFC PATCH 0/7] Linux on Apple Silicon
Date
This patch series contains the changes for a minimal
Linux on Apple Silicon boot, including SMP.

(sorry for the resubmission, I didn't attach the drivers
to the ones beforehand, and didn't submit it properly)

The changes:

- Support for FIQ interrupts in-kernel

This is required for the timer and IPIs on Apple SoCs.

- WFI hook

Apple processors do not keep register state across WFI.
As such, put a mechanism in cpu_ops to put a custom
sleep function instead.

- use nGnRnE instead of nGnRE on Apple processors

Device-nGnRE writes go to nowhere on Apple processors, as
such use MAIR to change those to Device-nGnRE writes.

- Apple AIC driver

Driver for the Apple AIC interrupt controller.

- Apple CPU start driver

On Apple Macs, RVBAR is locked by the bootloader.
And the hardware doesn't have EL3 to provide PSCI
as an option either. This also implements the workaround
for WFI on the hardware.

What is not present:

- Device tree, will be present in a future version of this
patchset

- More devices.

Thank you,
