andreast added a comment to D15168: Microchip's LAN78XX driver for FreeBSD.

This is the glue needed to build as a ko. If you add it to the KERNCONF file like 'device if_lan78xx # PI3b+ USB NIC' then you build it inline.

andreast added a comment to D14499: Move powerpc64 direct map from 0 to 0xc000000000000000.

Thanks for being invited to the review.
Well, I'm looking forward to a solution. I do not care in a first priority about POWER5+, it is broken anyway, genius iflib. But I can at least test the bring-up.
A more important priority is the G5 support. I'd need one and I'm willing to help.
For POWER8/9, others have to jump in.

My 2c, the code builds and boots fine if I use the odroidc1.dts with the meson.dtsi before this revision: 324820. I try to give it a chance.

andreast added a comment to D13126: Add powerpc.powerpcspe support for lang/gcc compilers.

The patches look good so far, but I'd like to build a cc before I continue. Unfortunately -CURRENT is totally broken regarding PowerPC-G5. And this hunting consumed quite a lot of time. Sure, for your patch this is not needed, but _I_ need a reference if gcc bootstrap works on PowerPC.
Btw, does powerpcspe have multilib directions?

I tested on a dual G5 and on a quad G5, with load (gcc bootstrapping/kernel/world build). The revision was r313259. It looks stable now.
It was not possible to test on POWER5+ due to e1000 and friend commits not working on BE systems.
Thanks,
Andreas

Why did you allow to enable multilib for all archs on gcc4.9/gcc4.8? It is still a no-op for all archs beside powerpc64.

andreast accepted D3952: Add a MULTILIB option to gcc{,48,49,5,5-devel,6-devel} for powerpc64.

I tested on my side and it is fine so far. I'd like to have this in since I have a follow up for enable/disable java for powerpc64. And also, gcc-6.0 can not be bootstrapped with the default gcc (gcc-4.2.1). it needs at newer one which must be < 5.2. gcc-5.2 is broken when it comes to linking. I guess PIE support.

andreast accepted D3952: Add a MULTILIB option to gcc{,48,49,5,5-devel,6-devel} for powerpc64.

Ok with me.
I often used to build with --disable-multilib to save time. But I usually have a lib32/libc.so. So if this test works, fine.
powerpc64 is the only target in FreeBSD land which has multilib support in gcc. For all other targets the --disable-multilib is a nop.

andreast added a comment to D602: Update binutils with ARM support.

Have not much to say about my stuff except two things:

  • the testsuite patch is not really needed. If you want to run the testsuite a few more bits are needed which are not yet committed. I usually run the testsuite to verify my changes. If I run towards zero failures I feel ready to prepare for commit. So the patch itself has had several successful test suite runs.
