Big-endian mode supported for Raspberry Pi [0-3] with bootable images available
I'm happy to announce that big-endian mode has been supported for
Raspberry Pi [0-3] in -current. Bootable disk images are available in
official daily snapshots. You can enjoy aarch64eb/armeb world on your
Pi's by just flashing these images to microSD!
vchiq(4) and vcaudio(4) are not supported in big-endian mode. This
requires heavy modifications to third party source codes. Anyway, we
will switch to vc4 drm driver, hopefully soon.
Pi 4 is not supported also. It needs ACPI, but acpica does not support
big-endian environments. This is really headache...
Other devices and features are supported in a similar manner as in
little-endian modes. Please tell me if you find endian-related bugs.
Available architectures and supported models are:
Pi 3 is supported by GENERIC64 kernel.
Bootable image is:
- earmv7hfeb and earmv7eb
Pi [2-3] are supported by GENERIC kernel.
Bootable image for earmv7hfeb is:
- earmv6hfeb and earmv6eb
Pi [0-1] are supported by RPI, and Pi 2 is supported by RPI2 kernel.
Bootable image for earmv6hfeb is:
