[PATCH 1/1] - Add support for PROM feature sets

From: Jack Steiner <steiner_at_sgi.com>
Date: 2005-09-01 01:05:02
Several years ago, we added "PROM versioning" to the SN code to check if the version 
of the PROM that is installed on a system is new enough to support the actual OS
that is booting. Early in boot, the OS checks the PROM version against an OS
hard coded "min PROM version" and panics if the PROM is too old.

This is useful for detecting attempts to boot with downrev PROMs.

This check worked ok (barely) when we were able to update the minimum version
in the OS just prior to a release.

This is no longer true. The new release methodology requires that we push code
to the community many months before a release This makes it impossible to keep
the hardcoded minimum PROM version correct. 

Shub2 has added another complication. Shub2 will have it's own version numbers 
that are independent of shub1 PROMS. (We could define a min-version for each 
of the PROMs, but that fixes only part of the problem).

We need a new method for determining the features that are supported by the
running PROM.

I'm proposing adding a "feature set" bit array to the PROM. As new features are
added to the PROM, a bit is added to the feature set to indicate that the PROM
supports the feature. Early in boot, the OS fetches the feature set and saves
it.

OS code can test for the presence of a feature with:

        if (sn_prom_feature_available(feature)) ...

This function will always return FALSE on old PROMs that do not support a
feature.

This will allow us to add new code to the OS to support features that are not
supported in all versions the PROM that the OS will run on.

In addition, the older version check will be deleted.

-----------

Add new vendor-specific SAL calls for:

	- notifying the PROM of specific features that are supported by the OS.
	  This is used to enable PROM feature if and only if the corresponding
	  feature is implemented in the OS

	- fetch feature sets that are supported by the current PROM. This allows
	  the OS to selectively enable features when the PROM support is available.
