soc/amd: Convert from AMD units to coreboot units

There are several files under soc/amd that use units defined by file
porting.h. These units use upper case, and are not recognized by checkpatch,
thus causing problems when defining a pointer (request to use space before
and after the star symbol). These are the definitions from porting.h showing
the units that this patch will change and their coreboot definitions (not all
are actually used):
  typedef uintptr_t      UINTN;
  typedef int64_t        INT64;
  typedef uint64_t       UINT64;
  typedef int32_t        INT32;
  typedef uint32_t       UINT32;
  typedef int16_t        INT16;
  typedef uint16_t       UINT16;
  typedef int8_t         INT8;
  typedef uint8_t        UINT8;
  typedef char           CHAR8;
  typedef unsigned short CHAR16;
  typedef unsigned char  BOOLEAN;
  typedef void VOID;

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.

Website and Mailing List

Further details on the project, a FAQ, many HOWTOs, news, development guidelines and more can be found on the coreboot website:
