11cvs tip.
Kevin O'Connor99373862008-10-25 23:10:27 -040012 * bochs cvs 20081016: -- better post resume support
13 * coreboot (r3348): 20060708 -- no noteworthy enhancements
14 * qemu (r5536): 20080603 -- has cmos smp count
Kevin O'Connor970a0322008-10-26 12:01:21 -040015 * kvm (1a33292): 20071016 -- acpi dsdt changes, e820 vmx
Kevin O'Connor99373862008-10-25 23:10:27 -040016 pages, setup mtrrs, clear tsc, acpi intsrcovr table, different pci
17 irqs, smbios always uses 16 cpus, no acpi ssdt, fadt->gpe0_blk set
18 * virtualbox (r13560): 20061231 -- lots of mouse changes, logo,

Kevin O'Connor5c4a8c62008-05-12 23:50:16 -040022Look into ways to reduce stack usage. Alter ISRs so that they do not
23enable irqs. Only call out to other bios functions after minimizing
24stack usage.
Kevin O'Connor2ad37442008-05-06 19:49:01 -040025
Kevin O'Connor7a558e42008-03-11 20:38:33 -040026Audit all sti/cli calls. Audit all call16 calls to make sure flags is
27setup properly with respect to irqs.
Kevin O'Connor44c631d2008-03-02 11:24:36 -050028
Kevin O'Connored128492008-03-11 11:14:59 -040029Audit statements where a 32bit intermediary changes meaning of a 16bit
30comparison.
31
Kevin O'Connor63dbcfb2008-03-01 22:17:07 -050032Code assumes ebda segment is static - it doesn't read 0x40e.
33
Kevin O'Connorb8aacb02008-03-01 14:56:07 -050034The __call16 code does a long jump to the interrupt trampolines - this
35is unnecessary.
Kevin O'Connorf076a3e2008-02-25 22:25:15 -050036
Kevin O'Connorf076a3e2008-02-25 22:25:15 -050037Cleanup setting of ES on GET/SET_BDA
38
Kevin O'Connor99373862008-10-25 23:10:27 -040039Audit code for 16bit protected mode accesses. Support 1ab1 from 16bit
40protected mode.
Kevin O'Connor65e63422008-07-19 14:12:32 -040041
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'Connor65e63422008-07-19 14:12:32 -040047See if it is possible to handle interrupts while in 32bit mode.
48
Kevin O'Connorf13b0082008-08-17 11:26:42 -040049Add a kconfig style configuration program instead of requiring users
50to modify config.h.
51
Kevin O'Connor22dfb852008-06-07 15:24:19 -040052Look at integrating the lgpl vgabios into tree.
Kevin O'Connor65e63422008-07-19 14:12:32 -040053
54Look at usb booting specs. Look at possibly supporting usb
55keyboard/mice.
