src/arch/x86: Use core apic id to get cpu_index()

This cpu_index() implementation assumes that cpu_index() function
might always getting called from coreboot context (ESP stack
pointer will always refer to coreboot).

This might not be true in case of proposed PI spec MP_SERVICES_PPI
implementation, where FSP context (stack pointer refers to fsp)
will request to get cpu_index(), natural alignment logic will
use ESP and retrieve struct cpu_info *ci from (stack_top - 8 byte).
This is not the place where cpu_index is actually stored by
ramstage c_start.S

Hence this patch tries to remove those dependencies while retrieving
cpu_index(), rather it uses cpuid to fetch lapic id and matches with
cpus_default_apic_id[] variable to return correct cpu_index().

BRANCH=none
BUG=b:79562868
TEST=Ensures functions can be run on APs without any failure and
cpu_index() also provides correct index number.

coreboot README

coreboot is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) found in most computers. coreboot performs a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes additional boot logic, called a payload.

With the separation of hardware initialization and later boot logic, coreboot can scale from specialized applications that run directly firmware, run operating systems in flash, load custom bootloaders, or implement firmware standards, like PC BIOS services or UEFI. This allows for systems to only include the features necessary in the target application, reducing the amount of code and flash space required.

coreboot was formerly known as LinuxBIOS.

Payloads

After the basic initialization of the hardware has been performed, any desired "payload" can be started by coreboot.

See https://www.coreboot.org/Payloads for a list of supported payloads.

Supported Hardware

coreboot supports a wide range of chipsets, devices, and mainboards.

For details please consult:

Build Requirements

  • make
  • gcc / g++ Because Linux distribution compilers tend to use lots of patches. coreboot does lots of "unusual" things in its build system, some of which break due to those patches, sometimes by gcc aborting, sometimes - and that's worse - by generating broken object code. Two options: use our toolchain (eg. make crosstools-i386) or enable the ANY_TOOLCHAIN Kconfig option if you're feeling lucky (no support in this case).
  • iasl (for targets with ACPI support)
  • pkg-config
  • libssl-dev (openssl)

Optional:

  • doxygen (for generating/viewing documentation)
  • gdb (for better debugging facilities on some targets)
  • ncurses (for make menuconfig and make nconfig)
  • flex and bison (for regenerating parsers)

Building coreboot

Please consult https://www.coreboot.org/Build_HOWTO for details.

Testing coreboot Without Modifying Your Hardware

If you want to test coreboot without any risks before you really decide to use it on your hardware, you can use the QEMU system emulator to run coreboot virtually in QEMU.

Please see https://www.coreboot.org/QEMU for details.
