Subject[PATCH 00/18] Apple M1 SoC platform bring-up
This series brings up initial support for the Apple M1 SoC, used in the
2020 Mac Mini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air models.

The following features are supported in this initial port:

- UART (samsung-style) with earlycon support
- Interrupts, including affinity and IPIs (Apple Interrupt Controller)
- SMP (through standard spin-table support)
- simplefb-based framebuffer
- Devicetree for the Mac Mini (should work for the others too at this

The primary pain points of this port are:

- Apple SoCs require FIQs, as the timers and "fast" IPIs are hardwired
to the FIQ interrupt line. This patchset introduces FIQ support through
the alternatives mechanism, so as to not affect other platforms,
implemented as simply merging IRQs and FIQs. The AIC driver takes care
of discriminating and routing IRQs to the right users.

- These SoCs blackhole nGnRE writes to internal MMIO ranges, and require
nGnRnE. There is no obvious right solution to solve this. I do not
expect the two patches for that in this series to be merged as-is, but
the commit messages describe the problem and potential solutions. I
hope we can have a discussion and converge on the right approach to
solve this problem in the sanest way.

These machines officially support booting unsigned/user-provided
XNU-like kernels, with a very different boot protocol and devicetree
format. We are developing an initial bootloader, m1n1 [1], to take care
of as many hardware peculiarities as possible and present a standard
Linux arm64 boot protocol and device tree. In the future, I expect that
production setups will add U-Boot and perhaps GRUB into the boot chain,
to make the boot process similar to other ARM64 platforms.

The machines expose their debug UART over USB Type C, triggered with
vendor-specific USB-PD commands. Currently, the easiest way to get a
serial console on these machines is to use a second M1 box and a simple
USB C cable [2]. You can also build a DIY interface using an Arduino, a
FUSB302 chip or board, and a 1.2V UART-TTL adapter [3]. In the coming
weeks we will be designing an open hardware project to provide
serial/debug connectivity to these machines (and, hopefully, also
support other UART-over-Type C setups from other vendors). Please
contact me privately if you are interested in getting an early prototype
version of one of these devices.

A quickstart guide to booting Linux kernels on these machines is
available at [4], and we are documenting the hardware at [5].
