[Intel FSP] Bay trail fsp how to disable internal SIO?

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I working coreboot project Bayley bay, my platform is Bay trail+a Fintek SIO ,

the code base is coreboot+ Intel baytrail FSP GOLDEN 2, I want use external SIO com1/2

to instead Intel internal COM1/2, but no success, below is my procedure.

1. Leaveage a SIO init code from a MP project.

2. Use BCT to disable FSP HSUART1/2.

3, Disable devicetree.cb intel hsuart1/2.

3. To boot then show below message

just show below message, enter to OS (DOS or WINDOWS) the COM all fail,

I think, I progamming is correct, but FSP look like will block out the UART IO Addreess,

so, have anybody can tell me how to fixit?Thanks.

BestRegards

James

Hello James_Lee

We've got feedback from our engineers, here is the information they provided for us, I hope you find it useful:

There are actually three UARTS on the Bay Trail SoC – two HSUARTs that are part of the Serial IO (SIO) block of devices, and one legacy UART, that is part of the Platform Controller Unit (PCU) block of devices.

The HSUART registers are accessed through PCI BARs, whereas the legacy UART uses the legacy COM1 I/O space registers, 3f8h-3ffh.

Whether or not they disable the on-chip HSUARTs is irrelevant, as they don't use the legacy I/O space addresses for COM1 and COM2.

Although you can disable the HSUARTs with the BCT, the legacy UART cannot be enabled or disabled via the BCT. The legacy UART is actually enabled in coreboot - file coreboot/src/soc/intel/fsp_baytrail/romstage/romstage.c calls function byt_config_com1_and_enable(), which is implemented in file coreboot/src/soc/intel/fsp_baytrail/romstage/uart.c and sets the bit to enable the legacy UART (it's disabled by default when the chip powers on). This could be replaced by code that initializes COM1 on the Fintek part instead of the UART.

Note that the FSP might also enable the legacy UART internally during the call to FspInitEntry. If so, then it would simply need to be disabled again in the continuation function, which, in coreboot, is function romstage_main_continue() located in file coreboot/src/soc/intel/fsp_baytrail/romstage/romstage.c.

Here is the public datasheet for reference on the various UARTs:
