Kevin O'Connor07750702009-07-13 20:35:38 -04001Enhance shadow support: Write-enable c, d, e segments; write protect
2option roms before boot. When copying bios - just copy from high
3memory.
4
5Replace hand-rolled memory allocation code with new malloc_fseg() and
6malloc_high() functions.
7
8Refactor acpi rsdt table creation code - allow each sub-table to be
9added dynamically.
10
11Deploy smbios in high memory.
12
13Unify floppy functions and main disk functions?
14
15Add int 0x1589 support.

Kevin O'Connor2ad37442008-05-06 19:49:01 -040017Review changes committed to coreboot, virtualbox, qemu, kvm, and bochs
18cvs tip.
Kevin O'Connor07750702009-07-13 20:35:38 -040019 * bochs cvs (20090620):
20 -- hpet, int1589, smbios mem>16GB, mptable on 1 cpu, mptable irq0
21 override
22 * coreboot (r3348): (bochs 20060708)
23 -- no noteworthy enhancements
24 * qemu (r6125): (bochs 20080603)
25 -- acpi hpet table
26 * kvm (1a33292): (bochs 20081016)
27 -- acpi dsdt changes, e820 vmx pages, setup mtrrs, clear tsc, acpi
28 intsrcovr table, different pci irqs, smbios always uses 16
29 cpus, no acpi ssdt, fadt->gpe0_blk set
30 * virtualbox (r13560): (bochs 20061231)
31 -- lots of mouse changes, logo, scsi/etherboot hooks, int 1589,
32 floppy data rate?, int19 calls post
Kevin O'Connor2ad37442008-05-06 19:49:01 -040033
Kevin O'Connorb62d1ae2009-02-05 19:35:11 -050034Possibly introduce a data type for the many seg/off pairs.
Kevin O'Connor2ad37442008-05-06 19:49:01 -040035
Kevin O'Connor7a558e42008-03-11 20:38:33 -040036Audit all sti/cli calls. Audit all call16 calls to make sure flags is
37setup properly with respect to irqs.
Kevin O'Connor44c631d2008-03-02 11:24:36 -050038
Kevin O'Connorb8aacb02008-03-01 14:56:07 -050039The __call16 code does a long jump to the interrupt trampolines - this
40is unnecessary.
Kevin O'Connorf076a3e2008-02-25 22:25:15 -050041
Kevin O'Connor2ad37442008-05-06 19:49:01 -040042Possibly implement 32bit pcibios support.
Kevin O'Connorf076a3e2008-02-25 22:25:15 -050043
44Allow one to select adding 32 bit code to 0xf000 or in a separate
45location.
46
Kevin O'Connorb62d1ae2009-02-05 19:35:11 -050047Implement bios post memory manager (PMM)?
48
Kevin O'Connor07750702009-07-13 20:35:38 -040049Support PCIv3 roms? Add support for PCI "configuration code"
50extensions? Add support for PCI permanent memory extensions to PMM?
Kevin O'Connorb62d1ae2009-02-05 19:35:11 -050051
52Possibly add option to eliminate tsc based delays on emulators.
Kevin O'Connor65e63422008-07-19 14:12:32 -040053
Kevin O'Connorf13b0082008-08-17 11:26:42 -040054Add a kconfig style configuration program instead of requiring users
55to modify config.h.
56
Kevin O'Connor07750702009-07-13 20:35:38 -040057Support usb booting? Support usb keyboard/mice?
Kevin O'Connor65e63422008-07-19 14:12:32 -040058
59Add a graphical boot splash screen?
Kevin O'Connor07750702009-07-13 20:35:38 -040060
61Possibly support sending debug information over EHCI debug port.
