Just a quick email to let people know that -current now has support for
ABLE firmware. Both running a.out and ELF kernels.
Note that currently there are issues with ABLE that I'm working with
simtec to resolve. These include:
Not booting from ffs
bootargs not being passed in
Note my testing hasn't been that thorough, I can boot kernels from
tftpboot via my tulip/de card, but you have to enter by hand the root
device, etc. So I'd not recommend ABLE for those who need a system that
Something I'm still looking into is how to handle symbol support on ELF
kernels. Not sure if we need to do the SYMTAB_SPACE trick still.
