vboot: Use CONFIG_VBOOT_MIGRATE_WORKING_DATA on all platforms When we added CONFIG_VBOOT_MIGRATE_WORKING_DATA, the idea was that on some Arm platforms the original working data buffer was in SRAM, which stays accessbile for the whole runtime of the system. There is no reason to migrate it into CBMEM on those platforms because ramstage and the payload could continue to access it in SRAM. Now that we've had a couple of months of experience with this option, we found that most of our Arm platforms have some issue that requires migrating anyway, because BL31 often claims SRAM for itself and makes it inaccessible to the payload. On the remaining platforms, accessing SRAM from the payload is possible but still an issue, because libpayload doesn't have enough memory layout information to set up proper page tables for it, so we're accessing it uncached and at risk of alignment errors. Rather than having to figure out how to map the right SRAM range for every platform in the payload, let's just get rid of the option. memcpy()ing 12KB isn't worth this much hassle.

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.
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.
coreboot supports a wide range of chipsets, devices, and mainboards.
For details please consult:
ANY_TOOLCHAINKconfig option if you're feeling lucky (no support in this case).
Please consult https://www.coreboot.org/Build_HOWTO for details.
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.
Further details on the project, a FAQ, many HOWTOs, news, development guidelines and more can be found on the coreboot website:
