Summary:
========
This directory contains the source code for U-Boot, a boot loader for
Embedded boards based on PowerPC, ARM, MIPS and several other
processors, which can be installed in a boot ROM and used to
initialize and test the hardware or to download and run application
code.
The development of U-Boot is closely related to Linux: some parts of
the source code originate in the Linux source tree, we have some
header files in common, and special provision has been made to
support booting of Linux images.
Some attention has been paid to make this software easily
configurable and extendable. For instance, all monitor commands are
implemented with the same call interface, so that it's very easy to
add new commands. Also, instead of permanently adding rarely used
code (for instance hardware test utilities) to the monitor, you can
load and run it dynamically.
Status:
=======
In general, all boards for which a configuration option exists in the
Makefile have been tested to some extent and can be considered
"working". In fact, many of them are used in production systems.
In case of problems see the CHANGELOG and CREDITS files to find out
who contributed the specific port. The boards.cfg file lists board
maintainers.
Note: There is no CHANGELOG file in the actual U-Boot source tree;
it can be created dynamically from the Git log using:
make CHANGELOG

Software Configuration:
=======================
Configuration is usually done using C preprocessor defines; the
rationale behind that is to avoid dead code whenever possible.
There are two classes of configuration variables:
* Configuration _OPTIONS_:
These are selectable by the user and have names beginning with
"CONFIG_".
* Configuration _SETTINGS_:
These depend on the hardware etc. and should not be meddled with if
you don't know what you're doing; they have names beginning with
"CONFIG_SYS_".
Later we will add a configuration tool - probably similar to or even
identical to what's used for the Linux kernel. Right now, we have to
do the configuration by hand, which means creating some symbolic
links and editing some configuration files. We use the TQM8xxL boards
as an example here.
Selection of Processor Architecture and Board Type:
---------------------------------------------------
For all supported boards there are ready-to-use default
configurations available; just type "make <board_name>_config".
Example: For a TQM823L module type:
cd u-boot
make TQM823L_config
For the Cogent platform, you need to specify the CPU type as well;
e.g. "make cogent_mpc8xx_config". And also configure the cogent
directory according to the instructions in cogent/README.
Configuration Options:
----------------------
Configuration depends on the combination of board and CPU type; all
such information is kept in a configuration file
"include/configs/<board_name>.h".
Example: For a TQM823L module, all configuration settings are in
"include/configs/TQM823L.h".
Many of the options are named exactly as the corresponding Linux
kernel configuration options. The intention is to make it easier to
build a config tool - later.
The following options need to be configured:
- CPU Type: Define exactly one, e.g. CONFIG_MPC85XX.
- Board Type: Define exactly one, e.g. CONFIG_MPC8540ADS.
- CPU Daughterboard Type: (if CONFIG_ATSTK1000 is defined)
Define exactly one, e.g. CONFIG_ATSTK1002
- CPU Module Type: (if CONFIG_COGENT is defined)
Define exactly one of
CONFIG_CMA286_60_OLD
--- FIXME --- not tested yet:
CONFIG_CMA286_60, CONFIG_CMA286_21, CONFIG_CMA286_60P,
CONFIG_CMA287_23, CONFIG_CMA287_50
- Motherboard Type: (if CONFIG_COGENT is defined)
Define exactly one of
CONFIG_CMA101, CONFIG_CMA102
- Motherboard I/O Modules: (if CONFIG_COGENT is defined)
Define one or more of
CONFIG_CMA302
- Motherboard Options: (if CONFIG_CMA101 or CONFIG_CMA102 are defined)
Define one or more of
CONFIG_LCD_HEARTBEAT - update a character position on
the LCD display every second with
a "rotator" |\-/|\-/
- Board flavour: (if CONFIG_MPC8260ADS is defined)
CONFIG_ADSTYPE
Possible values are:
CONFIG_SYS_8260ADS - original MPC8260ADS
CONFIG_SYS_8266ADS - MPC8266ADS
CONFIG_SYS_PQ2FADS - PQ2FADS-ZU or PQ2FADS-VR
CONFIG_SYS_8272ADS - MPC8272ADS
- Marvell Family Member
CONFIG_SYS_MVFS - define it if you want to enable
multiple fs option at one time
for marvell soc family
- MPC824X Family Member (if CONFIG_MPC824X is defined)
Define exactly one of
CONFIG_MPC8240, CONFIG_MPC8245
- 8xx CPU Options: (if using an MPC8xx CPU)
CONFIG_8xx_GCLK_FREQ - deprecated: CPU clock if
get_gclk_freq() cannot work
e.g. if there is no 32KHz
reference PIT/RTC clock
CONFIG_8xx_OSCLK - PLL input clock (either EXTCLK
or XTAL/EXTAL)
- 859/866/885 CPU options: (if using a MPC859 or MPC866 or MPC885 CPU):
CONFIG_SYS_8xx_CPUCLK_MIN
CONFIG_SYS_8xx_CPUCLK_MAX
CONFIG_8xx_CPUCLK_DEFAULT
See doc/README.MPC866
CONFIG_SYS_MEASURE_CPUCLK
Define this to measure the actual CPU clock instead
of relying on the correctness of the configured
values. Mostly useful for board bringup to make sure
the PLL is locked at the intended frequency. Note
that this requires a (stable) reference clock (32 kHz
RTC clock or CONFIG_SYS_8XX_XIN)
CONFIG_SYS_DELAYED_ICACHE
Define this option if you want to enable the
ICache only when Code runs from RAM.
- 85xx CPU Options:
CONFIG_SYS_PPC64
Specifies that the core is a 64-bit PowerPC implementation (implements
the "64" category of the Power ISA). This is necessary for ePAPR
compliance, among other possible reasons.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_TBCLK_DIV
Defines the core time base clock divider ratio compared to the
system clock. On most PQ3 devices this is 8, on newer QorIQ
devices it can be 16 or 32. The ratio varies from SoC to Soc.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_PCIE_COMPAT
Defines the string to utilize when trying to match PCIe device
tree nodes for the given platform.
CONFIG_SYS_PPC_E500_DEBUG_TLB
Enables a temporary TLB entry to be used during boot to work
around limitations in e500v1 and e500v2 external debugger
support. This reduces the portions of the boot code where
breakpoints and single stepping do not work. The value of this
symbol should be set to the TLB1 entry to be used for this
purpose.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510
Enables a workaround for erratum A004510. If set,
then CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510_SVR_REV and
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_CORENET_SNOOPVEC_COREONLY must be set.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510_SVR_REV
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510_SVR_REV2 (optional)
Defines one or two SoC revisions (low 8 bits of SVR)
for which the A004510 workaround should be applied.
The rest of SVR is either not relevant to the decision
of whether the erratum is present (e.g. p2040 versus
p2041) or is implied by the build target, which controls
whether CONFIG_SYS_FSL_ERRATUM_A004510 is set.
See Freescale App Note 4493 for more information about
this erratum.
CONFIG_A003399_NOR_WORKAROUND
Enables a workaround for IFC erratum A003399. It is only
requred during NOR boot.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_CORENET_SNOOPVEC_COREONLY
This is the value to write into CCSR offset 0x18600
according to the A004510 workaround.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_DDR_ADDR
This value denotes start offset of DDR memory which is
connected exclusively to the DSP cores.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_M2_RAM_ADDR
This value denotes start offset of M2 memory
which is directly connected to the DSP core.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_M3_RAM_ADDR
This value denotes start offset of M3 memory which is directly
connected to the DSP core.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DSP_CCSRBAR_DEFAULT
This value denotes start offset of DSP CCSR space.
- Generic CPU options:
CONFIG_SYS_BIG_ENDIAN, CONFIG_SYS_LITTLE_ENDIAN
Defines the endianess of the CPU. Implementation of those
values is arch specific.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDR
Freescale DDR driver in use. This type of DDR controller is
found in mpc83xx, mpc85xx, mpc86xx as well as some ARM core
SoCs.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDR_ADDR
Freescale DDR memory-mapped register base.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDR_EMU
Specify emulator support for DDR. Some DDR features such as
deskew training are not available.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDRC_GEN1
Freescale DDR1 controller.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDRC_GEN2
Freescale DDR2 controller.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDRC_GEN3
Freescale DDR3 controller.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDRC_ARM_GEN3
Freescale DDR3 controller for ARM-based SoCs.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDR1
Board config to use DDR1. It can be enabled for SoCs with
Freescale DDR1 or DDR2 controllers, depending on the board
implemetation.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDR2
Board config to use DDR2. It can be eanbeld for SoCs with
Freescale DDR2 or DDR3 controllers, depending on the board
implementation.
CONFIG_SYS_FSL_DDR3
Board config to use DDR3. It can be enabled for SoCs with
Freescale DDR3 controllers.
- Intel Monahans options:
CONFIG_SYS_MONAHANS_RUN_MODE_OSC_RATIO
Defines the Monahans run mode to oscillator
ratio. Valid values are 8, 16, 24, 31. The core
frequency is this value multiplied by 13 MHz.
CONFIG_SYS_MONAHANS_TURBO_RUN_MODE_RATIO
Defines the Monahans turbo mode to oscillator
ratio. Valid values are 1 (default if undefined) and
2. The core frequency as calculated above is multiplied
by this value.
- MIPS CPU options:
CONFIG_SYS_INIT_SP_OFFSET
Offset relative to CONFIG_SYS_SDRAM_BASE for initial stack
pointer. This is needed for the temporary stack before
relocation.
CONFIG_SYS_MIPS_CACHE_MODE
Cache operation mode for the MIPS CPU.
See also arch/mips/include/asm/mipsregs.h.
Possible values are:
CONF_CM_CACHABLE_NO_WA
CONF_CM_CACHABLE_WA
CONF_CM_UNCACHED
CONF_CM_CACHABLE_NONCOHERENT
CONF_CM_CACHABLE_CE
CONF_CM_CACHABLE_COW
CONF_CM_CACHABLE_CUW
CONF_CM_CACHABLE_ACCELERATED
CONFIG_SYS_XWAY_EBU_BOOTCFG
Special option for Lantiq XWAY SoCs for booting from NOR flash.
See also arch/mips/cpu/mips32/start.S.
CONFIG_XWAY_SWAP_BYTES
Enable compilation of tools/xway-swap-bytes needed for Lantiq
XWAY SoCs for booting from NOR flash. The U-Boot image needs to
be swapped if a flash programmer is used.
- ARM options:
CONFIG_SYS_EXCEPTION_VECTORS_HIGH
Select high exception vectors of the ARM core, e.g., do not
clear the V bit of the c1 register of CP15.
CONFIG_SYS_THUMB_BUILD
Use this flag to build U-Boot using the Thumb instruction
set for ARM architectures. Thumb instruction set provides
better code density. For ARM architectures that support
Thumb2 this flag will result in Thumb2 code generated by
GCC.
CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_716044
CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_742230
CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_743622
CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_751472
If set, the workarounds for these ARM errata are applied early
during U-Boot startup. Note that these options force the
workarounds to be applied; no CPU-type/version detection
exists, unlike the similar options in the Linux kernel. Do not
set these options unless they apply!
- CPU timer options:
CONFIG_SYS_HZ
The frequency of the timer returned by get_timer().
get_timer() must operate in milliseconds and this CONFIG
option must be set to 1000.
- Linux Kernel Interface:
CONFIG_CLOCKS_IN_MHZ
U-Boot stores all clock information in Hz
internally. For binary compatibility with older Linux
kernels (which expect the clocks passed in the
bd_info data to be in MHz) the environment variable
"clocks_in_mhz" can be defined so that U-Boot
converts clock data to MHZ before passing it to the
Linux kernel.
When CONFIG_CLOCKS_IN_MHZ is defined, a definition of
"clocks_in_mhz=1" is automatically included in the
default environment.
CONFIG_MEMSIZE_IN_BYTES [relevant for MIPS only]
When transferring memsize parameter to linux, some versions
expect it to be in bytes, others in MB.
Define CONFIG_MEMSIZE_IN_BYTES to make it in bytes.
CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT
New kernel versions are expecting firmware settings to be
passed using flattened device trees (based on open firmware
concepts).
CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT
* New libfdt-based support
* Adds the "fdt" command
* The bootm command automatically updates the fdt
OF_CPU - The proper name of the cpus node (only required for
MPC512X and MPC5xxx based boards).
OF_SOC - The proper name of the soc node (only required for
MPC512X and MPC5xxx based boards).
OF_TBCLK - The timebase frequency.
OF_STDOUT_PATH - The path to the console device
boards with QUICC Engines require OF_QE to set UCC MAC
addresses
CONFIG_OF_BOARD_SETUP
Board code has addition modification that it wants to make
to the flat device tree before handing it off to the kernel
CONFIG_OF_BOOT_CPU
This define fills in the correct boot CPU in the boot
param header, the default value is zero if undefined.
CONFIG_OF_IDE_FIXUP
U-Boot can detect if an IDE device is present or not.
If not, and this new config option is activated, U-Boot
removes the ATA node from the DTS before booting Linux,
so the Linux IDE driver does not probe the device and
crash. This is needed for buggy hardware (uc101) where
no pull down resistor is connected to the signal IDE5V_DD7.
CONFIG_MACH_TYPE [relevant for ARM only][mandatory]
This setting is mandatory for all boards that have only one
machine type and must be used to specify the machine type
number as it appears in the ARM machine registry
(see http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/developer/machines/).
Only boards that have multiple machine types supported
in a single configuration file and the machine type is
runtime discoverable, do not have to use this setting.
- vxWorks boot parameters:
bootvx constructs a valid bootline using the following
environments variables: bootfile, ipaddr, serverip, hostname.
It loads the vxWorks image pointed bootfile.
CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_BOOT_DEVICE - The vxworks device name
CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_MAC_PTR - Ethernet 6 byte MA -address
CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_SERVERNAME - Name of the server
CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_BOOT_ADDR - Address of boot parameters
CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_ADD_PARAMS
Add it at the end of the bootline. E.g "u=username pw=secret"
Note: If a "bootargs" environment is defined, it will overwride
the defaults discussed just above.
- Cache Configuration:
CONFIG_SYS_ICACHE_OFF - Do not enable instruction cache in U-Boot
CONFIG_SYS_DCACHE_OFF - Do not enable data cache in U-Boot
CONFIG_SYS_L2CACHE_OFF- Do not enable L2 cache in U-Boot
- Cache Configuration for ARM:
CONFIG_SYS_L2_PL310 - Enable support for ARM PL310 L2 cache
controller
CONFIG_SYS_PL310_BASE - Physical base address of PL310
controller register space
- Serial Ports:
CONFIG_PL010_SERIAL
Define this if you want support for Amba PrimeCell PL010 UARTs.
CONFIG_PL011_SERIAL
Define this if you want support for Amba PrimeCell PL011 UARTs.
CONFIG_PL011_CLOCK
If you have Amba PrimeCell PL011 UARTs, set this variable to
the clock speed of the UARTs.
CONFIG_PL01x_PORTS
If you have Amba PrimeCell PL010 or PL011 UARTs on your board,
define this to a list of base addresses for each (supported)
port. See e.g. include/configs/versatile.h
CONFIG_PL011_SERIAL_RLCR
Some vendor versions of PL011 serial ports (e.g. ST-Ericsson U8500)
have separate receive and transmit line control registers. Set
this variable to initialize the extra register.
CONFIG_PL011_SERIAL_FLUSH_ON_INIT
On some platforms (e.g. U8500) U-Boot is loaded by a second stage
boot loader that has already initialized the UART. Define this
variable to flush the UART at init time.
- Console Interface:
Depending on board, define exactly one serial port
(like CONFIG_8xx_CONS_SMC1, CONFIG_8xx_CONS_SMC2,
CONFIG_8xx_CONS_SCC1, ...), or switch off the serial
console by defining CONFIG_8xx_CONS_NONE
Note: if CONFIG_8xx_CONS_NONE is defined, the serial
port routines must be defined elsewhere
(i.e. serial_init(), serial_getc(), ...)
CONFIG_CFB_CONSOLE
Enables console device for a color framebuffer. Needs following
defines (cf. smiLynxEM, i8042)
VIDEO_FB_LITTLE_ENDIAN graphic memory organisation
(default big endian)
VIDEO_HW_RECTFILL graphic chip supports
rectangle fill
(cf. smiLynxEM)
VIDEO_HW_BITBLT graphic chip supports
bit-blit (cf. smiLynxEM)
VIDEO_VISIBLE_COLS visible pixel columns
(cols=pitch)
VIDEO_VISIBLE_ROWS visible pixel rows
VIDEO_PIXEL_SIZE bytes per pixel
VIDEO_DATA_FORMAT graphic data format
(0-5, cf. cfb_console.c)
VIDEO_FB_ADRS framebuffer address
VIDEO_KBD_INIT_FCT keyboard int fct
(i.e. i8042_kbd_init())
VIDEO_TSTC_FCT test char fct
(i.e. i8042_tstc)
VIDEO_GETC_FCT get char fct
(i.e. i8042_getc)
CONFIG_CONSOLE_CURSOR cursor drawing on/off
(requires blink timer
cf. i8042.c)
CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_BLINK_COUNT blink interval (cf. i8042.c)
CONFIG_CONSOLE_TIME display time/date info in
upper right corner
(requires CONFIG_CMD_DATE)
CONFIG_VIDEO_LOGO display Linux logo in
upper left corner
CONFIG_VIDEO_BMP_LOGO use bmp_logo.h instead of
linux_logo.h for logo.
Requires CONFIG_VIDEO_LOGO
CONFIG_CONSOLE_EXTRA_INFO
additional board info beside
the logo
When CONFIG_CFB_CONSOLE_ANSI is defined, console will support
a limited number of ANSI escape sequences (cursor control,
erase functions and limited graphics rendition control).
When CONFIG_CFB_CONSOLE is defined, video console is
default i/o. Serial console can be forced with
environment 'console=serial'.
When CONFIG_SILENT_CONSOLE is defined, all console
messages (by U-Boot and Linux!) can be silenced with
the "silent" environment variable. See
doc/README.silent for more information.
CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_BG_COL: define the backgroundcolor, default
is 0x00.
CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_FG_COL: define the foregroundcolor, default
is 0xa0.
- Console Baudrate:
CONFIG_BAUDRATE - in bps
Select one of the baudrates listed in
CONFIG_SYS_BAUDRATE_TABLE, see below.
CONFIG_SYS_BRGCLK_PRESCALE, baudrate prescale
- Console Rx buffer length
With CONFIG_SYS_SMC_RXBUFLEN it is possible to define
the maximum receive buffer length for the SMC.
This option is actual only for 82xx and 8xx possible.
If using CONFIG_SYS_SMC_RXBUFLEN also CONFIG_SYS_MAXIDLE
must be defined, to setup the maximum idle timeout for
the SMC.
- Pre-Console Buffer:
Prior to the console being initialised (i.e. serial UART
initialised etc) all console output is silently discarded.
Defining CONFIG_PRE_CONSOLE_BUFFER will cause U-Boot to
buffer any console messages prior to the console being
initialised to a buffer of size CONFIG_PRE_CON_BUF_SZ
bytes located at CONFIG_PRE_CON_BUF_ADDR. The buffer is
a circular buffer, so if more than CONFIG_PRE_CON_BUF_SZ
bytes are output before the console is initialised, the
earlier bytes are discarded.
'Sane' compilers will generate smaller code if
CONFIG_PRE_CON_BUF_SZ is a power of 2
- Safe printf() functions
Define CONFIG_SYS_VSNPRINTF to compile in safe versions of
the printf() functions. These are defined in
include/vsprintf.h and include snprintf(), vsnprintf() and
so on. Code size increase is approximately 300-500 bytes.
If this option is not given then these functions will
silently discard their buffer size argument - this means
you are not getting any overflow checking in this case.
- Boot Delay: CONFIG_BOOTDELAY - in seconds
Delay before automatically booting the default image;
set to -1 to disable autoboot.
set to -2 to autoboot with no delay and not check for abort
(even when CONFIG_ZERO_BOOTDELAY_CHECK is defined).
See doc/README.autoboot for these options that
work with CONFIG_BOOTDELAY. None are required.
CONFIG_BOOT_RETRY_TIME
CONFIG_BOOT_RETRY_MIN
CONFIG_AUTOBOOT_KEYED
CONFIG_AUTOBOOT_PROMPT
CONFIG_AUTOBOOT_DELAY_STR
CONFIG_AUTOBOOT_STOP_STR
CONFIG_AUTOBOOT_DELAY_STR2
CONFIG_AUTOBOOT_STOP_STR2
CONFIG_ZERO_BOOTDELAY_CHECK
CONFIG_RESET_TO_RETRY
- Autoboot Command:
CONFIG_BOOTCOMMAND
Only needed when CONFIG_BOOTDELAY is enabled;
define a command string that is automatically executed
when no character is read on the console interface
within "Boot Delay" after reset.
CONFIG_BOOTARGS
This can be used to pass arguments to the bootm
command. The value of CONFIG_BOOTARGS goes into the
environment value "bootargs".
CONFIG_RAMBOOT and CONFIG_NFSBOOT
The value of these goes into the environment as
"ramboot" and "nfsboot" respectively, and can be used
as a convenience, when switching between booting from
RAM and NFS.
- Bootcount:
CONFIG_BOOTCOUNT_LIMIT
Implements a mechanism for detecting a repeating reboot
cycle, see:
http://www.denx.de/wiki/view/DULG/UBootBootCountLimit
CONFIG_BOOTCOUNT_ENV
If no softreset save registers are found on the hardware
"bootcount" is stored in the environment. To prevent a
saveenv on all reboots, the environment variable
"upgrade_available" is used. If "upgrade_available" is
0, "bootcount" is always 0, if "upgrade_available" is
1 "bootcount" is incremented in the environment.
So the Userspace Applikation must set the "upgrade_available"
and "bootcount" variable to 0, if a boot was successfully.
- Pre-Boot Commands:
CONFIG_PREBOOT
When this option is #defined, the existence of the
environment variable "preboot" will be checked
immediately before starting the CONFIG_BOOTDELAY
countdown and/or running the auto-boot command resp.
entering interactive mode.
This feature is especially useful when "preboot" is
automatically generated or modified. For an example
see the LWMON board specific code: here "preboot" is
modified when the user holds down a certain
combination of keys on the (special) keyboard when
booting the systems
- Serial Download Echo Mode:
CONFIG_LOADS_ECHO
If defined to 1, all characters received during a
serial download (using the "loads" command) are
echoed back. This might be needed by some terminal
emulations (like "cu"), but may as well just take
time on others. This setting #define's the initial
value of the "loads_echo" environment variable.
- Kgdb Serial Baudrate: (if CONFIG_CMD_KGDB is defined)
CONFIG_KGDB_BAUDRATE
Select one of the baudrates listed in
CONFIG_SYS_BAUDRATE_TABLE, see below.
- Monitor Functions:
Monitor commands can be included or excluded
from the build by using the #include files
<config_cmd_all.h> and #undef'ing unwanted
commands, or using <config_cmd_default.h>
and augmenting with additional #define's
for wanted commands.

EXAMPLE: If you want all functions except of network
support you can write:
#include "config_cmd_all.h"
#undef CONFIG_CMD_NET
Other Commands:
fdt (flattened device tree) command: CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT
Note: Don't enable the "icache" and "dcache" commands
(configuration option CONFIG_CMD_CACHE) unless you know
what you (and your U-Boot users) are doing. Data
cache cannot be enabled on systems like the 8xx or
8260 (where accesses to the IMMR region must be
uncached), and it cannot be disabled on all other
systems where we (mis-) use the data cache to hold an
initial stack and some data.
XXX - this list needs to get updated!
- Regular expression support:
CONFIG_REGEX
If this variable is defined, U-Boot is linked against
the SLRE (Super Light Regular Expression) library,
which adds regex support to some commands, as for
example "env grep" and "setexpr".
- Device tree:
CONFIG_OF_CONTROL
If this variable is defined, U-Boot will use a device tree
to configure its devices, instead of relying on statically
compiled #defines in the board file. This option is
experimental and only available on a few boards. The device
tree is available in the global data as gd->fdt_blob.
U-Boot needs to get its device tree from somewhere. This can
be done using one of the two options below:
CONFIG_OF_EMBED
If this variable is defined, U-Boot will embed a device tree
binary in its image. This device tree file should be in the
board directory and called <soc>-<board>.dts. The binary file
is then picked up in board_init_f() and made available through
the global data structure as gd->blob.
CONFIG_OF_SEPARATE
If this variable is defined, U-Boot will build a device tree
binary. It will be called u-boot.dtb. Architecture-specific
code will locate it at run-time. Generally this works by:
cat u-boot.bin u-boot.dtb >image.bin
and in fact, U-Boot does this for you, creating a file called
u-boot-dtb.bin which is useful in the common case. You can
still use the individual files if you need something more
exotic.
- Watchdog:
CONFIG_WATCHDOG
If this variable is defined, it enables watchdog
support for the SoC. There must be support in the SoC
specific code for a watchdog. For the 8xx and 8260
CPUs, the SIU Watchdog feature is enabled in the SYPCR
register. When supported for a specific SoC is
available, then no further board specific code should
be needed to use it.
CONFIG_HW_WATCHDOG
When using a watchdog circuitry external to the used
SoC, then define this variable and provide board
specific code for the "hw_watchdog_reset" function.
- U-Boot Version:
CONFIG_VERSION_VARIABLE
If this variable is defined, an environment variable
named "ver" is created by U-Boot showing the U-Boot
version as printed by the "version" command.
Any change to this variable will be reverted at the
next reset.
- Real-Time Clock:
When CONFIG_CMD_DATE is selected, the type of the RTC
has to be selected, too. Define exactly one of the
following options:
CONFIG_RTC_MPC8xx - use internal RTC of MPC8xx
CONFIG_RTC_PCF8563 - use Philips PCF8563 RTC
CONFIG_RTC_MC13XXX - use MC13783 or MC13892 RTC
CONFIG_RTC_MC146818 - use MC146818 RTC
CONFIG_RTC_DS1307 - use Maxim, Inc. DS1307 RTC
CONFIG_RTC_DS1337 - use Maxim, Inc. DS1337 RTC
CONFIG_RTC_DS1338 - use Maxim, Inc. DS1338 RTC
CONFIG_RTC_DS164x - use Dallas DS164x RTC
CONFIG_RTC_ISL1208 - use Intersil ISL1208 RTC
CONFIG_RTC_MAX6900 - use Maxim, Inc. MAX6900 RTC
CONFIG_SYS_RTC_DS1337_NOOSC - Turn off the OSC output for DS1337
CONFIG_SYS_RV3029_TCR - enable trickle charger on
RV3029 RTC.
Note that if the RTC uses I2C, then the I2C interface
must also be configured. See I2C Support, below.
- GPIO Support:
CONFIG_PCA953X - use NXP's PCA953X series I2C GPIO
The CONFIG_SYS_I2C_PCA953X_WIDTH option specifies a list of
chip-ngpio pairs that tell the PCA953X driver the number of
pins supported by a particular chip.
Note that if the GPIO device uses I2C, then the I2C interface
must also be configured. See I2C Support, below.
- Timestamp Support:
When CONFIG_TIMESTAMP is selected, the timestamp
(date and time) of an image is printed by image
commands like bootm or iminfo. This option is
automatically enabled when you select CONFIG_CMD_DATE .
- Partition Labels (disklabels) Supported:
Zero or more of the following:
CONFIG_MAC_PARTITION Apple's MacOS partition table.
CONFIG_DOS_PARTITION MS Dos partition table, traditional on the
Intel architecture, USB sticks, etc.
CONFIG_ISO_PARTITION ISO partition table, used on CDROM etc.
CONFIG_EFI_PARTITION GPT partition table, common when EFI is the
bootloader. Note 2TB partition limit; see
disk/part_efi.c
CONFIG_MTD_PARTITIONS Memory Technology Device partition table.
If IDE or SCSI support is enabled (CONFIG_CMD_IDE or
CONFIG_CMD_SCSI) you must configure support for at
least one non-MTD partition type as well.
- IDE Reset method:
CONFIG_IDE_RESET_ROUTINE - this is defined in several
board configurations files but used nowhere!
CONFIG_IDE_RESET - is this is defined, IDE Reset will
be performed by calling the function
ide_set_reset(int reset)
which has to be defined in a board specific file
- ATAPI Support:
CONFIG_ATAPI
Set this to enable ATAPI support.
- LBA48 Support
CONFIG_LBA48
Set this to enable support for disks larger than 137GB
Also look at CONFIG_SYS_64BIT_LBA.
Whithout these , LBA48 support uses 32bit variables and will 'only'
support disks up to 2.1TB.
CONFIG_SYS_64BIT_LBA:
When enabled, makes the IDE subsystem use 64bit sector addresses.
Default is 32bit.
- SCSI Support:
At the moment only there is only support for the
SYM53C8XX SCSI controller; define
CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX to enable it.
CONFIG_SYS_SCSI_MAX_LUN [8], CONFIG_SYS_SCSI_MAX_SCSI_ID [7] and
CONFIG_SYS_SCSI_MAX_DEVICE [CONFIG_SYS_SCSI_MAX_SCSI_ID *
CONFIG_SYS_SCSI_MAX_LUN] can be adjusted to define the
maximum numbers of LUNs, SCSI ID's and target
devices.
CONFIG_SYS_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_CCF to fix clock timing (80Mhz)
The environment variable 'scsidevs' is set to the number of
SCSI devices found during the last scan.

Define this to use GE link update with gigabit PHY.
Define this if FTGMAC100 is connected to gigabit PHY.
If your system has 10/100 PHY only, it might not occur
wrong behavior. Because PHY usually return timeout or
useless data when polling gigabit status and gigabit
control registers. This behavior won't affect the
correctnessof 10/100 link speed update.
CONFIG_SMC911X
Support for SMSC's LAN911x and LAN921x chips
CONFIG_SMC911X_BASE
Define this to hold the physical address

CONFIG_SYS_USB_EVENT_POLL
May be defined to allow interrupt polling
instead of using asynchronous interrupts
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_TXFIFO_THRESH enables setting of the
txfilltuning field in the EHCI controller on reset.
CONFIG_USB_HUB_MIN_POWER_ON_DELAY defines the minimum
interval for usb hub power-on delay.(minimum 100msec)
- USB Device:
Define the below if you wish to use the USB console.
Once firmware is rebuilt from a serial console issue the
command "setenv stdin usbtty; setenv stdout usbtty" and
attach your USB cable. The Unix command "dmesg" should print
it has found a new device. The environment variable usbtty
can be set to gserial or cdc_acm to enable your device to
appear to a USB host as a Linux gserial device or a
Common Device Class Abstract Control Model serial device.
If you select usbtty = gserial you should be able to enumerate
a Linux host by
# modprobe usbserial vendor=0xVendorID product=0xProductID
else if using cdc_acm, simply setting the environment
variable usbtty to be cdc_acm should suffice. The following
might be defined in YourBoardName.h
CONFIG_USB_DEVICE
Define this to build a UDC device
CONFIG_USB_TTY
Define this to have a tty type of device available to
talk to the UDC device
CONFIG_USBD_HS
Define this to enable the high speed support for usb
device and usbtty. If this feature is enabled, a routine
int is_usbd_high_speed(void)
also needs to be defined by the driver to dynamically poll
whether the enumeration has succeded at high speed or full
speed.
CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_IS_IN_ENV
Define this if you want stdin, stdout &/or stderr to
be set to usbtty.
mpc8xx:
CONFIG_SYS_USB_EXTC_CLK 0xBLAH
Derive USB clock from external clock "blah"
- CONFIG_SYS_USB_EXTC_CLK 0x02
CONFIG_SYS_USB_BRG_CLK 0xBLAH
Derive USB clock from brgclk
- CONFIG_SYS_USB_BRG_CLK 0x04
If you have a USB-IF assigned VendorID then you may wish to
define your own vendor specific values either in BoardName.h
or directly in usbd_vendor_info.h. If you don't define
CONFIG_USBD_MANUFACTURER, CONFIG_USBD_PRODUCT_NAME,
CONFIG_USBD_VENDORID and CONFIG_USBD_PRODUCTID, then U-Boot
should pretend to be a Linux device to it's target host.
CONFIG_USBD_MANUFACTURER
Define this string as the name of your company for
- CONFIG_USBD_MANUFACTURER "my company"
CONFIG_USBD_PRODUCT_NAME
Define this string as the name of your product
- CONFIG_USBD_PRODUCT_NAME "acme usb device"
CONFIG_USBD_VENDORID
Define this as your assigned Vendor ID from the USB
Implementors Forum. This *must* be a genuine Vendor ID
to avoid polluting the USB namespace.
- CONFIG_USBD_VENDORID 0xFFFF
CONFIG_USBD_PRODUCTID
Define this as the unique Product ID
for your device
- CONFIG_USBD_PRODUCTID 0xFFFF
Some USB device drivers may need to check USB cable attachment.
In this case you can enable following config in BoardName.h:
CONFIG_USB_CABLE_CHECK
This enables function definition:
- usb_cable_connected() in include/usb.h
Implementation of this function is board-specific.
- ULPI Layer Support:
The ULPI (UTMI Low Pin (count) Interface) PHYs are supported via
the generic ULPI layer. The generic layer accesses the ULPI PHY
via the platform viewport, so you need both the genric layer and
the viewport enabled. Currently only Chipidea/ARC based
viewport is supported.
To enable the ULPI layer support, define CONFIG_USB_ULPI and
CONFIG_USB_ULPI_VIEWPORT in your board configuration file.
If your ULPI phy needs a different reference clock than the
standard 24 MHz then you have to define CONFIG_ULPI_REF_CLK to
the appropriate value in Hz.
- MMC Support:
The MMC controller on the Intel PXA is supported. To
enable this define CONFIG_MMC. The MMC can be
accessed from the boot prompt by mapping the device
to physical memory similar to flash. Command line is
enabled with CONFIG_CMD_MMC. The MMC driver also works with
the FAT fs. This is enabled with CONFIG_CMD_FAT.
CONFIG_SH_MMCIF
Support for Renesas on-chip MMCIF controller
CONFIG_SH_MMCIF_ADDR
Define the base address of MMCIF registers
CONFIG_SH_MMCIF_CLK
Define the clock frequency for MMCIF
- USB Device Firmware Update (DFU) class support:
CONFIG_DFU_FUNCTION
This enables the USB portion of the DFU USB class
CONFIG_CMD_DFU
This enables the command "dfu" which is used to have
U-Boot create a DFU class device via USB. This command
requires that the "dfu_alt_info" environment variable be
set and define the alt settings to expose to the host.
CONFIG_DFU_MMC
This enables support for exposing (e)MMC devices via DFU.
CONFIG_DFU_NAND
This enables support for exposing NAND devices via DFU.
CONFIG_DFU_RAM
This enables support for exposing RAM via DFU.
Note: DFU spec refer to non-volatile memory usage, but
allow usages beyond the scope of spec - here RAM usage,
one that would help mostly the developer.
CONFIG_SYS_DFU_DATA_BUF_SIZE
Dfu transfer uses a buffer before writing data to the
raw storage device. Make the size (in bytes) of this buffer
configurable. The size of this buffer is also configurable
through the "dfu_bufsiz" environment variable.
CONFIG_SYS_DFU_MAX_FILE_SIZE
When updating files rather than the raw storage device,
we use a static buffer to copy the file into and then write
the buffer once we've been given the whole file. Define
this to the maximum filesize (in bytes) for the buffer.
Default is 4 MiB if undefined.
- Journaling Flash filesystem support:
CONFIG_JFFS2_NAND, CONFIG_JFFS2_NAND_OFF, CONFIG_JFFS2_NAND_SIZE,
CONFIG_JFFS2_NAND_DEV
Define these for a default partition on a NAND device
CONFIG_SYS_JFFS2_FIRST_SECTOR,
CONFIG_SYS_JFFS2_FIRST_BANK, CONFIG_SYS_JFFS2_NUM_BANKS
Define these for a default partition on a NOR device
CONFIG_SYS_JFFS_CUSTOM_PART
Define this to create an own partition. You have to provide a
function struct part_info* jffs2_part_info(int part_num)
If you define only one JFFS2 partition you may also want to
#define CONFIG_SYS_JFFS_SINGLE_PART 1
to disable the command chpart. This is the default when you
have not defined a custom partition
- FAT(File Allocation Table) filesystem write function support:
CONFIG_FAT_WRITE
Define this to enable support for saving memory data as a
file in FAT formatted partition.
This will also enable the command "fatwrite" enabling the
user to write files to FAT.
CBFS (Coreboot Filesystem) support
CONFIG_CMD_CBFS
Define this to enable support for reading from a Coreboot
filesystem. Available commands are cbfsinit, cbfsinfo, cbfsls
and cbfsload.
- Keyboard Support:
CONFIG_ISA_KEYBOARD
Define this to enable standard (PC-Style) keyboard
support
CONFIG_I8042_KBD
Standard PC keyboard driver with US (is default) and
GERMAN key layout (switch via environment 'keymap=de') support.
Export function i8042_kbd_init, i8042_tstc and i8042_getc
for cfb_console. Supports cursor blinking.
CONFIG_CROS_EC_KEYB
Enables a Chrome OS keyboard using the CROS_EC interface.
This uses CROS_EC to communicate with a second microcontroller
which provides key scans on request.
- Video support:
CONFIG_VIDEO
Define this to enable video support (for output to
video).
CONFIG_VIDEO_CT69000
Enable Chips & Technologies 69000 Video chip
CONFIG_VIDEO_SMI_LYNXEM
Enable Silicon Motion SMI 712/710/810 Video chip. The
video output is selected via environment 'videoout'
(1 = LCD and 2 = CRT). If videoout is undefined, CRT is
assumed.
For the CT69000 and SMI_LYNXEM drivers, videomode is
selected via environment 'videomode'. Two different ways
are possible:
- "videomode=num" 'num' is a standard LiLo mode numbers.
Following standard modes are supported (* is default):
Colors 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1152x864 1280x1024

(i.e. setenv videomode 317; saveenv; reset;)
- "videomode=bootargs" all the video parameters are parsed
from the bootargs. (See drivers/video/videomodes.c)
CONFIG_VIDEO_SED13806
Enable Epson SED13806 driver. This driver supports 8bpp
and 16bpp modes defined by CONFIG_VIDEO_SED13806_8BPP
or CONFIG_VIDEO_SED13806_16BPP
CONFIG_FSL_DIU_FB
Enable the Freescale DIU video driver. Reference boards for
SOCs that have a DIU should define this macro to enable DIU
support, and should also define these other macros:
CONFIG_SYS_DIU_ADDR
CONFIG_VIDEO
CONFIG_CMD_BMP
CONFIG_CFB_CONSOLE
CONFIG_VIDEO_SW_CURSOR
CONFIG_VGA_AS_SINGLE_DEVICE
CONFIG_VIDEO_LOGO
CONFIG_VIDEO_BMP_LOGO
The DIU driver will look for the 'video-mode' environment
variable, and if defined, enable the DIU as a console during
boot. See the documentation file README.video for a
description of this variable.
CONFIG_VIDEO_VGA
Enable the VGA video / BIOS for x86. The alternative if you
are using coreboot is to use the coreboot frame buffer
driver.
- Keyboard Support:
CONFIG_KEYBOARD
Define this to enable a custom keyboard support.
This simply calls drv_keyboard_init() which must be
defined in your board-specific files.
The only board using this so far is RBC823.
- LCD Support: CONFIG_LCD
Define this to enable LCD support (for output to LCD
display); also select one of the supported displays
by defining one of these:
CONFIG_ATMEL_LCD:
HITACHI TX09D70VM1CCA, 3.5", 240x320.
CONFIG_NEC_NL6448AC33:
NEC NL6448AC33-18. Active, color, single scan.
CONFIG_NEC_NL6448BC20
NEC NL6448BC20-08. 6.5", 640x480.
Active, color, single scan.
CONFIG_NEC_NL6448BC33_54
NEC NL6448BC33-54. 10.4", 640x480.
Active, color, single scan.
CONFIG_SHARP_16x9
Sharp 320x240. Active, color, single scan.
It isn't 16x9, and I am not sure what it is.
CONFIG_SHARP_LQ64D341
Sharp LQ64D341 display, 640x480.
Active, color, single scan.
CONFIG_HLD1045
HLD1045 display, 640x480.
Active, color, single scan.
CONFIG_OPTREX_BW
Optrex CBL50840-2 NF-FW 99 22 M5
or
Hitachi LMG6912RPFC-00T
or
Hitachi SP14Q002
320x240. Black & white.
Normally display is black on white background; define
CONFIG_SYS_WHITE_ON_BLACK to get it inverted.
CONFIG_LCD_ALIGNMENT
Normally the LCD is page-aligned (tyically 4KB). If this is
defined then the LCD will be aligned to this value instead.
For ARM it is sometimes useful to use MMU_SECTION_SIZE
here, since it is cheaper to change data cache settings on
a per-section basis.
CONFIG_CONSOLE_SCROLL_LINES
When the console need to be scrolled, this is the number of
lines to scroll by. It defaults to 1. Increasing this makes
the console jump but can help speed up operation when scrolling
is slow.
CONFIG_LCD_BMP_RLE8
Support drawing of RLE8-compressed bitmaps on the LCD.
CONFIG_I2C_EDID
Enables an 'i2c edid' command which can read EDID
information over I2C from an attached LCD display.
- Splash Screen Support: CONFIG_SPLASH_SCREEN
If this option is set, the environment is checked for
a variable "splashimage". If found, the usual display
of logo, copyright and system information on the LCD
is suppressed and the BMP image at the address
specified in "splashimage" is loaded instead. The
console is redirected to the "nulldev", too. This
allows for a "silent" boot where a splash screen is
loaded very quickly after power-on.
CONFIG_SPLASHIMAGE_GUARD
If this option is set, then U-Boot will prevent the environment
variable "splashimage" from being set to a problematic address
(see README.displaying-bmps and README.arm-unaligned-accesses).
This option is useful for targets where, due to alignment
restrictions, an improperly aligned BMP image will cause a data
abort. If you think you will not have problems with unaligned
accesses (for example because your toolchain prevents them)
there is no need to set this option.
CONFIG_SPLASH_SCREEN_ALIGN
If this option is set the splash image can be freely positioned
on the screen. Environment variable "splashpos" specifies the
position as "x,y". If a positive number is given it is used as
number of pixel from left/top. If a negative number is given it
is used as number of pixel from right/bottom. You can also
specify 'm' for centering the image.
Example:
setenv splashpos m,m
=> image at center of screen
setenv splashpos 30,20
=> image at x = 30 and y = 20
setenv splashpos -10,m
=> vertically centered image
at x = dspWidth - bmpWidth - 9
- Gzip compressed BMP image support: CONFIG_VIDEO_BMP_GZIP
If this option is set, additionally to standard BMP
images, gzipped BMP images can be displayed via the
splashscreen support or the bmp command.
- Run length encoded BMP image (RLE8) support: CONFIG_VIDEO_BMP_RLE8
If this option is set, 8-bit RLE compressed BMP images
can be displayed via the splashscreen support or the
bmp command.
- Do compresssing for memory range:
CONFIG_CMD_ZIP
If this option is set, it would use zlib deflate method
to compress the specified memory at its best effort.
- Compression support:
CONFIG_GZIP
Enabled by default to support gzip compressed images.
CONFIG_BZIP2
If this option is set, support for bzip2 compressed
images is included. If not, only uncompressed and gzip
compressed images are supported.
NOTE: the bzip2 algorithm requires a lot of RAM, so
the malloc area (as defined by CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN) should
be at least 4MB.
CONFIG_LZMA
If this option is set, support for lzma compressed
images is included.
Note: The LZMA algorithm adds between 2 and 4KB of code and it
requires an amount of dynamic memory that is given by the
formula:
(1846 + 768 << (lc + lp)) * sizeof(uint16)
Where lc and lp stand for, respectively, Literal context bits
and Literal pos bits.
This value is upper-bounded by 14MB in the worst case. Anyway,
for a ~4MB large kernel image, we have lc=3 and lp=0 for a
total amount of (1846 + 768 << (3 + 0)) * 2 = ~41KB... that is
a very small buffer.
Use the lzmainfo tool to determinate the lc and lp values and
then calculate the amount of needed dynamic memory (ensuring
the appropriate CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN value).
CONFIG_LZO
If this option is set, support for LZO compressed images
is included.
- MII/PHY support:
CONFIG_PHY_ADDR
The address of PHY on MII bus.
CONFIG_PHY_CLOCK_FREQ (ppc4xx)
The clock frequency of the MII bus
CONFIG_PHY_GIGE
If this option is set, support for speed/duplex
detection of gigabit PHY is included.
CONFIG_PHY_RESET_DELAY
Some PHY like Intel LXT971A need extra delay after
reset before any MII register access is possible.
For such PHY, set this option to the usec delay
required. (minimum 300usec for LXT971A)
CONFIG_PHY_CMD_DELAY (ppc4xx)
Some PHY like Intel LXT971A need extra delay after
command issued before MII status register can be read
- Ethernet address:
CONFIG_ETHADDR
CONFIG_ETH1ADDR
CONFIG_ETH2ADDR
CONFIG_ETH3ADDR
CONFIG_ETH4ADDR
CONFIG_ETH5ADDR
Define a default value for Ethernet address to use
for the respective Ethernet interface, in case this
is not determined automatically.
- IP address:
CONFIG_IPADDR
Define a default value for the IP address to use for
the default Ethernet interface, in case this is not
determined through e.g. bootp.
(Environment variable "ipaddr")
- Server IP address:
CONFIG_SERVERIP
Defines a default value for the IP address of a TFTP
server to contact when using the "tftboot" command.
(Environment variable "serverip")
CONFIG_KEEP_SERVERADDR
Keeps the server's MAC address, in the env 'serveraddr'
for passing to bootargs (like Linux's netconsole option)
- Gateway IP address:
CONFIG_GATEWAYIP
Defines a default value for the IP address of the
default router where packets to other networks are
sent to.
(Environment variable "gatewayip")
- Subnet mask:
CONFIG_NETMASK
Defines a default value for the subnet mask (or
routing prefix) which is used to determine if an IP
address belongs to the local subnet or needs to be
forwarded through a router.
(Environment variable "netmask")
- Multicast TFTP Mode:
CONFIG_MCAST_TFTP
Defines whether you want to support multicast TFTP as per
rfc-2090; for example to work with atftp. Lets lots of targets
tftp down the same boot image concurrently. Note: the Ethernet
driver in use must provide a function: mcast() to join/leave a
multicast group.
- BOOTP Recovery Mode:
CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY
If you have many targets in a network that try to
boot using BOOTP, you may want to avoid that all
systems send out BOOTP requests at precisely the same
moment (which would happen for instance at recovery
from a power failure, when all systems will try to
boot, thus flooding the BOOTP server. Defining
CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY causes a random delay to be
inserted before sending out BOOTP requests. The
following delays are inserted then:
1st BOOTP request: delay 0 ... 1 sec
2nd BOOTP request: delay 0 ... 2 sec
3rd BOOTP request: delay 0 ... 4 sec
4th and following
BOOTP requests: delay 0 ... 8 sec
- DHCP Advanced Options:
You can fine tune the DHCP functionality by defining
CONFIG_BOOTP_* symbols:
CONFIG_BOOTP_SUBNETMASK
CONFIG_BOOTP_GATEWAY
CONFIG_BOOTP_HOSTNAME
CONFIG_BOOTP_NISDOMAIN
CONFIG_BOOTP_BOOTPATH
CONFIG_BOOTP_BOOTFILESIZE
CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS
CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2
CONFIG_BOOTP_SEND_HOSTNAME
CONFIG_BOOTP_NTPSERVER
CONFIG_BOOTP_TIMEOFFSET
CONFIG_BOOTP_VENDOREX
CONFIG_BOOTP_MAY_FAIL
CONFIG_BOOTP_SERVERIP - TFTP server will be the serverip
environment variable, not the BOOTP server.
CONFIG_BOOTP_MAY_FAIL - If the DHCP server is not found
after the configured retry count, the call will fail
instead of starting over. This can be used to fail over
to Link-local IP address configuration if the DHCP server
is not available.
CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 - If a DHCP client requests the DNS
serverip from a DHCP server, it is possible that more
than one DNS serverip is offered to the client.
If CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 is enabled, the secondary DNS
serverip will be stored in the additional environment
variable "dnsip2". The first DNS serverip is always
stored in the variable "dnsip", when CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS
is defined.
CONFIG_BOOTP_SEND_HOSTNAME - Some DHCP servers are capable
to do a dynamic update of a DNS server. To do this, they
need the hostname of the DHCP requester.
If CONFIG_BOOTP_SEND_HOSTNAME is defined, the content
of the "hostname" environment variable is passed as
option 12 to the DHCP server.
CONFIG_BOOTP_DHCP_REQUEST_DELAY
A 32bit value in microseconds for a delay between
receiving a "DHCP Offer" and sending the "DHCP Request".
This fixes a problem with certain DHCP servers that don't
respond 100% of the time to a "DHCP request". E.g. On an
AT91RM9200 processor running at 180MHz, this delay needed
to be *at least* 15,000 usec before a Windows Server 2003
DHCP server would reply 100% of the time. I recommend at
least 50,000 usec to be safe. The alternative is to hope
that one of the retries will be successful but note that
the DHCP timeout and retry process takes a longer than
this delay.
- Link-local IP address negotiation:
Negotiate with other link-local clients on the local network
for an address that doesn't require explicit configuration.
This is especially useful if a DHCP server cannot be guaranteed
to exist in all environments that the device must operate.
See doc/README.link-local for more information.
- CDP Options:
CONFIG_CDP_DEVICE_ID
The device id used in CDP trigger frames.
CONFIG_CDP_DEVICE_ID_PREFIX
A two character string which is prefixed to the MAC address
of the device.
CONFIG_CDP_PORT_ID
A printf format string which contains the ascii name of
the port. Normally is set to "eth%d" which sets
eth0 for the first Ethernet, eth1 for the second etc.
CONFIG_CDP_CAPABILITIES
A 32bit integer which indicates the device capabilities;
0x00000010 for a normal host which does not forwards.
CONFIG_CDP_VERSION
An ascii string containing the version of the software.
CONFIG_CDP_PLATFORM
An ascii string containing the name of the platform.
CONFIG_CDP_TRIGGER
A 32bit integer sent on the trigger.
CONFIG_CDP_POWER_CONSUMPTION
A 16bit integer containing the power consumption of the
device in .1 of milliwatts.
CONFIG_CDP_APPLIANCE_VLAN_TYPE
A byte containing the id of the VLAN.
- Status LED: CONFIG_STATUS_LED
Several configurations allow to display the current
status using a LED. For instance, the LED will blink
fast while running U-Boot code, stop blinking as
soon as a reply to a BOOTP request was received, and
start blinking slow once the Linux kernel is running
(supported by a status LED driver in the Linux
kernel). Defining CONFIG_STATUS_LED enables this
feature in U-Boot.
Additional options:
CONFIG_GPIO_LED
The status LED can be connected to a GPIO pin.
In such cases, the gpio_led driver can be used as a
status LED backend implementation. Define CONFIG_GPIO_LED
to include the gpio_led driver in the U-Boot binary.
CONFIG_GPIO_LED_INVERTED_TABLE
Some GPIO connected LEDs may have inverted polarity in which
case the GPIO high value corresponds to LED off state and
GPIO low value corresponds to LED on state.
In such cases CONFIG_GPIO_LED_INVERTED_TABLE may be defined
with a list of GPIO LEDs that have inverted polarity.
- CAN Support: CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER
Defining CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER enables CAN driver support
on those systems that support this (optional)
feature, like the TQM8xxL modules.
- I2C Support: CONFIG_SYS_I2C
This enable the NEW i2c subsystem, and will allow you to use
i2c commands at the u-boot command line (as long as you set
CONFIG_CMD_I2C in CONFIG_COMMANDS) and communicate with i2c
based realtime clock chips or other i2c devices. See
common/cmd_i2c.c for a description of the command line
interface.

with a fix speed from 100000 and the slave addr 0!
additional defines:
CONFIG_SYS_NUM_I2C_BUSES
Hold the number of i2c busses you want to use. If you
don't use/have i2c muxes on your i2c bus, this
is equal to CONFIG_SYS_NUM_I2C_ADAPTERS, and you can
omit this define.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_DIRECT_BUS
define this, if you don't use i2c muxes on your hardware.
if CONFIG_SYS_I2C_MAX_HOPS is not defined or == 0 you can
omit this define.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_MAX_HOPS
define how many muxes are maximal consecutively connected
on one i2c bus. If you not use i2c muxes, omit this
define.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_BUSES
hold a list of busses you want to use, only used if
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_DIRECT_BUS is not defined, for example
a board with CONFIG_SYS_I2C_MAX_HOPS = 1 and
CONFIG_SYS_NUM_I2C_BUSES = 9:
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_BUSES {{0, {I2C_NULL_HOP}}, \
{0, {{I2C_MUX_PCA9547, 0x70, 1}}}, \
{0, {{I2C_MUX_PCA9547, 0x70, 2}}}, \
{0, {{I2C_MUX_PCA9547, 0x70, 3}}}, \
{0, {{I2C_MUX_PCA9547, 0x70, 4}}}, \
{0, {{I2C_MUX_PCA9547, 0x70, 5}}}, \
{1, {I2C_NULL_HOP}}, \
{1, {{I2C_MUX_PCA9544, 0x72, 1}}}, \
{1, {{I2C_MUX_PCA9544, 0x72, 2}}}, \
}

bus 8 on adapter 1 with a PCA9544 on address 0x72 port 2
If you do not have i2c muxes on your board, omit this define.
- Legacy I2C Support: CONFIG_HARD_I2C
NOTE: It is intended to move drivers to CONFIG_SYS_I2C which
provides the following compelling advantages:
- more than one i2c adapter is usable
- approved multibus support
- better i2c mux support
** Please consider updating your I2C driver now. **
These enable legacy I2C serial bus commands. Defining
CONFIG_HARD_I2C will include the appropriate I2C driver
for the selected CPU.
This will allow you to use i2c commands at the u-boot
command line (as long as you set CONFIG_CMD_I2C in
CONFIG_COMMANDS) and communicate with i2c based realtime
clock chips. See common/cmd_i2c.c for a description of the
command line interface.
CONFIG_HARD_I2C selects a hardware I2C controller.
There are several other quantities that must also be
defined when you define CONFIG_HARD_I2C.
In both cases you will need to define CONFIG_SYS_I2C_SPEED
to be the frequency (in Hz) at which you wish your i2c bus
to run and CONFIG_SYS_I2C_SLAVE to be the address of this node (ie
the CPU's i2c node address).
Now, the u-boot i2c code for the mpc8xx
(arch/powerpc/cpu/mpc8xx/i2c.c) sets the CPU up as a master node
and so its address should therefore be cleared to 0 (See,
eg, MPC823e User's Manual p.16-473). So, set
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_SLAVE to 0.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_INIT_MPC5XXX
When a board is reset during an i2c bus transfer
chips might think that the current transfer is still
in progress. Reset the slave devices by sending start
commands until the slave device responds.
That's all that's required for CONFIG_HARD_I2C.
If you use the software i2c interface (CONFIG_SYS_I2C_SOFT)
then the following macros need to be defined (examples are
from include/configs/lwmon.h):
I2C_INIT
(Optional). Any commands necessary to enable the I2C
controller or configure ports.
eg: #define I2C_INIT (immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdir |= PB_SCL)
I2C_PORT
(Only for MPC8260 CPU). The I/O port to use (the code
assumes both bits are on the same port). Valid values
are 0..3 for ports A..D.
I2C_ACTIVE
The code necessary to make the I2C data line active
(driven). If the data line is open collector, this
define can be null.
eg: #define I2C_ACTIVE (immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdir |= PB_SDA)
I2C_TRISTATE
The code necessary to make the I2C data line tri-stated
(inactive). If the data line is open collector, this
define can be null.
eg: #define I2C_TRISTATE (immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdir &= ~PB_SDA)
I2C_READ
Code that returns true if the I2C data line is high,
false if it is low.
eg: #define I2C_READ ((immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdat & PB_SDA) != 0)
I2C_SDA(bit)
If <bit> is true, sets the I2C data line high. If it
is false, it clears it (low).
eg: #define I2C_SDA(bit) \
if(bit) immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdat |= PB_SDA; \
else immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdat &= ~PB_SDA
I2C_SCL(bit)
If <bit> is true, sets the I2C clock line high. If it
is false, it clears it (low).
eg: #define I2C_SCL(bit) \
if(bit) immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdat |= PB_SCL; \
else immr->im_cpm.cp_pbdat &= ~PB_SCL
I2C_DELAY
This delay is invoked four times per clock cycle so this
controls the rate of data transfer. The data rate thus
is 1 / (I2C_DELAY * 4). Often defined to be something
like:
#define I2C_DELAY udelay(2)
CONFIG_SOFT_I2C_GPIO_SCL / CONFIG_SOFT_I2C_GPIO_SDA
If your arch supports the generic GPIO framework (asm/gpio.h),
then you may alternatively define the two GPIOs that are to be
used as SCL / SDA. Any of the previous I2C_xxx macros will
have GPIO-based defaults assigned to them as appropriate.
You should define these to the GPIO value as given directly to
the generic GPIO functions.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_INIT_BOARD
When a board is reset during an i2c bus transfer
chips might think that the current transfer is still
in progress. On some boards it is possible to access
the i2c SCLK line directly, either by using the
processor pin as a GPIO or by having a second pin
connected to the bus. If this option is defined a
custom i2c_init_board() routine in boards/xxx/board.c
is run early in the boot sequence.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_BOARD_LATE_INIT
An alternative to CONFIG_SYS_I2C_INIT_BOARD. If this option is
defined a custom i2c_board_late_init() routine in
boards/xxx/board.c is run AFTER the operations in i2c_init()
is completed. This callpoint can be used to unreset i2c bus
using CPU i2c controller register accesses for CPUs whose i2c
controller provide such a method. It is called at the end of
i2c_init() to allow i2c_init operations to setup the i2c bus
controller on the CPU (e.g. setting bus speed & slave address).
CONFIG_I2CFAST (PPC405GP|PPC405EP only)
This option enables configuration of bi_iic_fast[] flags
in u-boot bd_info structure based on u-boot environment
variable "i2cfast". (see also i2cfast)
CONFIG_I2C_MULTI_BUS
This option allows the use of multiple I2C buses, each of which
must have a controller. At any point in time, only one bus is
active. To switch to a different bus, use the 'i2c dev' command.
Note that bus numbering is zero-based.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_NOPROBES
This option specifies a list of I2C devices that will be skipped
when the 'i2c probe' command is issued. If CONFIG_I2C_MULTI_BUS
is set, specify a list of bus-device pairs. Otherwise, specify
a 1D array of device addresses
e.g.
#undef CONFIG_I2C_MULTI_BUS
#define CONFIG_SYS_I2C_NOPROBES {0x50,0x68}
will skip addresses 0x50 and 0x68 on a board with one I2C bus
#define CONFIG_I2C_MULTI_BUS
#define CONFIG_SYS_I2C_MULTI_NOPROBES {{0,0x50},{0,0x68},{1,0x54}}
will skip addresses 0x50 and 0x68 on bus 0 and address 0x54 on bus 1
CONFIG_SYS_SPD_BUS_NUM
If defined, then this indicates the I2C bus number for DDR SPD.
If not defined, then U-Boot assumes that SPD is on I2C bus 0.
CONFIG_SYS_RTC_BUS_NUM
If defined, then this indicates the I2C bus number for the RTC.
If not defined, then U-Boot assumes that RTC is on I2C bus 0.
CONFIG_SYS_DTT_BUS_NUM
If defined, then this indicates the I2C bus number for the DTT.
If not defined, then U-Boot assumes that DTT is on I2C bus 0.
CONFIG_SYS_I2C_DTT_ADDR:
If defined, specifies the I2C address of the DTT device.
If not defined, then U-Boot uses predefined value for
specified DTT device.
CONFIG_SOFT_I2C_READ_REPEATED_START
defining this will force the i2c_read() function in
the soft_i2c driver to perform an I2C repeated start
between writing the address pointer and reading the
data. If this define is omitted the default behaviour
of doing a stop-start sequence will be used. Most I2C
devices can use either method, but some require one or
the other.
- SPI Support: CONFIG_SPI
Enables SPI driver (so far only tested with
SPI EEPROM, also an instance works with Crystal A/D and
D/As on the SACSng board)
CONFIG_SH_SPI
Enables the driver for SPI controller on SuperH. Currently
only SH7757 is supported.
CONFIG_SPI_X
Enables extended (16-bit) SPI EEPROM addressing.
(symmetrical to CONFIG_I2C_X)
CONFIG_SOFT_SPI
Enables a software (bit-bang) SPI driver rather than
using hardware support. This is a general purpose
driver that only requires three general I/O port pins
(two outputs, one input) to function. If this is
defined, the board configuration must define several
SPI configuration items (port pins to use, etc). For
an example, see include/configs/sacsng.h.
CONFIG_HARD_SPI
Enables a hardware SPI driver for general-purpose reads
and writes. As with CONFIG_SOFT_SPI, the board configuration
must define a list of chip-select function pointers.
Currently supported on some MPC8xxx processors. For an
example, see include/configs/mpc8349emds.h.
CONFIG_MXC_SPI
Enables the driver for the SPI controllers on i.MX and MXC
SoCs. Currently i.MX31/35/51 are supported.
- FPGA Support: CONFIG_FPGA
Enables FPGA subsystem.
CONFIG_FPGA_<vendor>
Enables support for specific chip vendors.
(ALTERA, XILINX)
CONFIG_FPGA_<family>
Enables support for FPGA family.
(SPARTAN2, SPARTAN3, VIRTEX2, CYCLONE2, ACEX1K, ACEX)
CONFIG_FPGA_COUNT
Specify the number of FPGA devices to support.
CONFIG_SYS_FPGA_PROG_FEEDBACK
Enable printing of hash marks during FPGA configuration.
CONFIG_SYS_FPGA_CHECK_BUSY
Enable checks on FPGA configuration interface busy
status by the configuration function. This option
will require a board or device specific function to
be written.
CONFIG_FPGA_DELAY
If defined, a function that provides delays in the FPGA
configuration driver.
CONFIG_SYS_FPGA_CHECK_CTRLC
Allow Control-C to interrupt FPGA configuration
CONFIG_SYS_FPGA_CHECK_ERROR
Check for configuration errors during FPGA bitfile
loading. For example, abort during Virtex II
configuration if the INIT_B line goes low (which
indicated a CRC error).
CONFIG_SYS_FPGA_WAIT_INIT
Maximum time to wait for the INIT_B line to deassert
after PROB_B has been deasserted during a Virtex II
FPGA configuration sequence. The default time is 500
ms.
CONFIG_SYS_FPGA_WAIT_BUSY
Maximum time to wait for BUSY to deassert during
Virtex II FPGA configuration. The default is 5 ms.
CONFIG_SYS_FPGA_WAIT_CONFIG
Time to wait after FPGA configuration. The default is
200 ms.
- Configuration Management:
CONFIG_IDENT_STRING
If defined, this string will be added to the U-Boot
version information (U_BOOT_VERSION)
- Vendor Parameter Protection:
U-Boot considers the values of the environment
variables "serial#" (Board Serial Number) and
"ethaddr" (Ethernet Address) to be parameters that
are set once by the board vendor / manufacturer, and
protects these variables from casual modification by
the user. Once set, these variables are read-only,
and write or delete attempts are rejected. You can
change this behaviour:
If CONFIG_ENV_OVERWRITE is #defined in your config
file, the write protection for vendor parameters is
completely disabled. Anybody can change or delete
these parameters.
Alternatively, if you #define _both_ CONFIG_ETHADDR
_and_ CONFIG_OVERWRITE_ETHADDR_ONCE, a default
Ethernet address is installed in the environment,
which can be changed exactly ONCE by the user. [The
serial# is unaffected by this, i. e. it remains
read-only.]
The same can be accomplished in a more flexible way
for any variable by configuring the type of access
to allow for those variables in the ".flags" variable
or define CONFIG_ENV_FLAGS_LIST_STATIC.
- Protected RAM:
CONFIG_PRAM
Define this variable to enable the reservation of
"protected RAM", i. e. RAM which is not overwritten
by U-Boot. Define CONFIG_PRAM to hold the number of
kB you want to reserve for pRAM. You can overwrite
this default value by defining an environment
variable "pram" to the number of kB you want to
reserve. Note that the board info structure will
still show the full amount of RAM. If pRAM is
reserved, a new environment variable "mem" will
automatically be defined to hold the amount of
remaining RAM in a form that can be passed as boot
argument to Linux, for instance like that:
setenv bootargs ... mem=\${mem}
saveenv
This way you can tell Linux not to use this memory,
either, which results in a memory region that will
not be affected by reboots.
*WARNING* If your board configuration uses automatic
detection of the RAM size, you must make sure that
this memory test is non-destructive. So far, the
following board configurations are known to be
"pRAM-clean":
IVMS8, IVML24, SPD8xx, TQM8xxL,
HERMES, IP860, RPXlite, LWMON,
FLAGADM, TQM8260
- Access to physical memory region (> 4GB)
Some basic support is provided for operations on memory not
normally accessible to U-Boot - e.g. some architectures
support access to more than 4GB of memory on 32-bit
machines using physical address extension or similar.
Define CONFIG_PHYSMEM to access this basic support, which
currently only supports clearing the memory.
- Error Recovery:
CONFIG_PANIC_HANG
Define this variable to stop the system in case of a
fatal error, so that you have to reset it manually.
This is probably NOT a good idea for an embedded
system where you want the system to reboot
automatically as fast as possible, but it may be
useful during development since you can try to debug
the conditions that lead to the situation.
CONFIG_NET_RETRY_COUNT
This variable defines the number of retries for
network operations like ARP, RARP, TFTP, or BOOTP
before giving up the operation. If not defined, a
default value of 5 is used.
CONFIG_ARP_TIMEOUT
Timeout waiting for an ARP reply in milliseconds.
CONFIG_NFS_TIMEOUT
Timeout in milliseconds used in NFS protocol.
If you encounter "ERROR: Cannot umount" in nfs command,
try longer timeout such as
#define CONFIG_NFS_TIMEOUT 10000UL
- Command Interpreter:
CONFIG_AUTO_COMPLETE
Enable auto completion of commands using TAB.
Note that this feature has NOT been implemented yet
for the "hush" shell.
CONFIG_SYS_HUSH_PARSER
Define this variable to enable the "hush" shell (from
Busybox) as command line interpreter, thus enabling
powerful command line syntax like
if...then...else...fi conditionals or `&&' and '||'
constructs ("shell scripts").
If undefined, you get the old, much simpler behaviour
with a somewhat smaller memory footprint.
CONFIG_SYS_PROMPT_HUSH_PS2
This defines the secondary prompt string, which is
printed when the command interpreter needs more input
to complete a command. Usually "> ".
Note:
In the current implementation, the local variables
space and global environment variables space are
separated. Local variables are those you define by
simply typing `name=value'. To access a local
variable later on, you have write `$name' or
`${name}'; to execute the contents of a variable
directly type `$name' at the command prompt.
Global environment variables are those you use
setenv/printenv to work with. To run a command stored
in such a variable, you need to use the run command,
and you must not use the '$' sign to access them.
To store commands and special characters in a
variable, please use double quotation marks
surrounding the whole text of the variable, instead
of the backslashes before semicolons and special
symbols.
- Commandline Editing and History:
CONFIG_CMDLINE_EDITING
Enable editing and History functions for interactive
commandline input operations
- Default Environment:
CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS
Define this to contain any number of null terminated
strings (variable = value pairs) that will be part of
the default environment compiled into the boot image.
For example, place something like this in your
board's config file:
#define CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS \
"myvar1=value1\0" \
"myvar2=value2\0"
Warning: This method is based on knowledge about the
internal format how the environment is stored by the
U-Boot code. This is NOT an official, exported
interface! Although it is unlikely that this format
will change soon, there is no guarantee either.
You better know what you are doing here.
Note: overly (ab)use of the default environment is
discouraged. Make sure to check other ways to preset
the environment like the "source" command or the
boot command first.
CONFIG_ENV_VARS_UBOOT_CONFIG
Define this in order to add variables describing the
U-Boot build configuration to the default environment.
These will be named arch, cpu, board, vendor, and soc.
Enabling this option will cause the following to be defined:
- CONFIG_SYS_ARCH
- CONFIG_SYS_CPU
- CONFIG_SYS_BOARD
- CONFIG_SYS_VENDOR
- CONFIG_SYS_SOC
CONFIG_ENV_VARS_UBOOT_RUNTIME_CONFIG
Define this in order to add variables describing certain
run-time determined information about the hardware to the
environment. These will be named board_name, board_rev.
CONFIG_DELAY_ENVIRONMENT
Normally the environment is loaded when the board is
intialised so that it is available to U-Boot. This inhibits
that so that the environment is not available until
explicitly loaded later by U-Boot code. With CONFIG_OF_CONTROL
this is instead controlled by the value of
/config/load-environment.
- DataFlash Support:
CONFIG_HAS_DATAFLASH
Defining this option enables DataFlash features and
allows to read/write in Dataflash via the standard
commands cp, md...
- Serial Flash support
CONFIG_CMD_SF
Defining this option enables SPI flash commands
'sf probe/read/write/erase/update'.
Usage requires an initial 'probe' to define the serial
flash parameters, followed by read/write/erase/update
commands.
The following defaults may be provided by the platform
to handle the common case when only a single serial
flash is present on the system.
CONFIG_SF_DEFAULT_BUS Bus identifier
CONFIG_SF_DEFAULT_CS Chip-select
CONFIG_SF_DEFAULT_MODE (see include/spi.h)
CONFIG_SF_DEFAULT_SPEED in Hz
CONFIG_CMD_SF_TEST
Define this option to include a destructive SPI flash
test ('sf test').
CONFIG_SPI_FLASH_BAR Ban/Extended Addr Reg
Define this option to use the Bank addr/Extended addr
support on SPI flashes which has size > 16Mbytes.
- SystemACE Support:
CONFIG_SYSTEMACE
Adding this option adds support for Xilinx SystemACE
chips attached via some sort of local bus. The address
of the chip must also be defined in the
CONFIG_SYS_SYSTEMACE_BASE macro. For example:
#define CONFIG_SYSTEMACE
#define CONFIG_SYS_SYSTEMACE_BASE 0xf0000000
When SystemACE support is added, the "ace" device type
becomes available to the fat commands, i.e. fatls.
- TFTP Fixed UDP Port:
CONFIG_TFTP_PORT
If this is defined, the environment variable tftpsrcp
is used to supply the TFTP UDP source port value.
If tftpsrcp isn't defined, the normal pseudo-random port
number generator is used.
Also, the environment variable tftpdstp is used to supply
the TFTP UDP destination port value. If tftpdstp isn't
defined, the normal port 69 is used.
The purpose for tftpsrcp is to allow a TFTP server to
blindly start the TFTP transfer using the pre-configured
target IP address and UDP port. This has the effect of
"punching through" the (Windows XP) firewall, allowing
the remainder of the TFTP transfer to proceed normally.
A better solution is to properly configure the firewall,
but sometimes that is not allowed.
- Hashing support:
CONFIG_CMD_HASH
This enables a generic 'hash' command which can produce
hashes / digests from a few algorithms (e.g. SHA1, SHA256).
CONFIG_HASH_VERIFY
Enable the hash verify command (hash -v). This adds to code
size a little.
CONFIG_SHA1 - support SHA1 hashing
CONFIG_SHA256 - support SHA256 hashing
Note: There is also a sha1sum command, which should perhaps
be deprecated in favour of 'hash sha1'.
- Freescale i.MX specific commands:
CONFIG_CMD_HDMIDETECT
This enables 'hdmidet' command which returns true if an
HDMI monitor is detected. This command is i.MX 6 specific.
CONFIG_CMD_BMODE
This enables the 'bmode' (bootmode) command for forcing
a boot from specific media.
This is useful for forcing the ROM's usb downloader to
activate upon a watchdog reset which is nice when iterating
on U-Boot. Using the reset button or running bmode normal
will set it back to normal. This command currently
supports i.MX53 and i.MX6.
- Signing support:
CONFIG_RSA
This enables the RSA algorithm used for FIT image verification
in U-Boot. See doc/uImage/signature for more information.
The signing part is build into mkimage regardless of this
option.
- Show boot progress:
CONFIG_SHOW_BOOT_PROGRESS
Defining this option allows to add some board-
specific code (calling a user-provided function
"show_boot_progress(int)") that enables you to show
the system's boot progress on some display (for
example, some LED's) on your board. At the moment,
the following checkpoints are implemented:
- Detailed boot stage timing
CONFIG_BOOTSTAGE
Define this option to get detailed timing of each stage
of the boot process.
CONFIG_BOOTSTAGE_USER_COUNT
This is the number of available user bootstage records.
Each time you call bootstage_mark(BOOTSTAGE_ID_ALLOC, ...)
a new ID will be allocated from this stash. If you exceed
the limit, recording will stop.
CONFIG_BOOTSTAGE_REPORT
Define this to print a report before boot, similar to this:
Timer summary in microseconds:
Mark Elapsed Stage
0 0 reset
3,575,678 3,575,678 board_init_f start
3,575,695 17 arch_cpu_init A9
3,575,777 82 arch_cpu_init done
3,659,598 83,821 board_init_r start
3,910,375 250,777 main_loop
29,916,167 26,005,792 bootm_start
30,361,327 445,160 start_kernel
CONFIG_CMD_BOOTSTAGE
Add a 'bootstage' command which supports printing a report
and un/stashing of bootstage data.
CONFIG_BOOTSTAGE_FDT
Stash the bootstage information in the FDT. A root 'bootstage'
node is created with each bootstage id as a child. Each child
has a 'name' property and either 'mark' containing the
mark time in microsecond, or 'accum' containing the
accumulated time for that bootstage id in microseconds.
For example:
bootstage {
154 {
name = "board_init_f";
mark = <3575678>;
};
170 {
name = "lcd";
accum = <33482>;
};
};
Code in the Linux kernel can find this in /proc/devicetree.

- FIT image support:
CONFIG_FIT
Enable support for the FIT uImage format.
CONFIG_FIT_BEST_MATCH
When no configuration is explicitly selected, default to the
one whose fdt's compatibility field best matches that of
U-Boot itself. A match is considered "best" if it matches the
most specific compatibility entry of U-Boot's fdt's root node.
The order of entries in the configuration's fdt is ignored.
CONFIG_FIT_SIGNATURE
This option enables signature verification of FIT uImages,
using a hash signed and verified using RSA. See
doc/uImage.FIT/signature.txt for more details.
- Standalone program support:
CONFIG_STANDALONE_LOAD_ADDR
This option defines a board specific value for the
address where standalone program gets loaded, thus
overwriting the architecture dependent default
settings.
- Frame Buffer Address:
CONFIG_FB_ADDR
Define CONFIG_FB_ADDR if you want to use specific
address for frame buffer. This is typically the case
when using a graphics controller has separate video
memory. U-Boot will then place the frame buffer at
the given address instead of dynamically reserving it
in system RAM by calling lcd_setmem(), which grabs
the memory for the frame buffer depending on the
configured panel size.
Please see board_init_f function.
- Automatic software updates via TFTP server
CONFIG_UPDATE_TFTP
CONFIG_UPDATE_TFTP_CNT_MAX
CONFIG_UPDATE_TFTP_MSEC_MAX
These options enable and control the auto-update feature;
for a more detailed description refer to doc/README.update.
- MTD Support (mtdparts command, UBI support)
CONFIG_MTD_DEVICE
Adds the MTD device infrastructure from the Linux kernel.
Needed for mtdparts command support.
CONFIG_MTD_PARTITIONS
Adds the MTD partitioning infrastructure from the Linux
kernel. Needed for UBI support.
- UBI support
CONFIG_CMD_UBI
Adds commands for interacting with MTD partitions formatted
with the UBI flash translation layer
Requires also defining CONFIG_RBTREE
CONFIG_UBI_SILENCE_MSG
Make the verbose messages from UBI stop printing. This leaves
warnings and errors enabled.
- UBIFS support

CONFIG_SPL_PAD_TO must be either 0, meaning to append the SPL
payload without any padding, or >= CONFIG_SPL_MAX_SIZE.
CONFIG_SPL_TARGET
Final target image containing SPL and payload. Some SPLs
use an arch-specific makefile fragment instead, for
example if more than one image needs to be produced.
CONFIG_FIT_SPL_PRINT
Printing information about a FIT image adds quite a bit of
code to SPL. So this is normally disabled in SPL. Use this
option to re-enable it. This will affect the output of the
bootm command when booting a FIT image.
- TPL framework

payload without any padding, or >= CONFIG_SPL_MAX_SIZE.
Modem Support:
--------------
[so far only for SMDK2400 boards]
- Modem support enable:
CONFIG_MODEM_SUPPORT
- RTS/CTS Flow control enable:
CONFIG_HWFLOW
- Modem debug support:
CONFIG_MODEM_SUPPORT_DEBUG
Enables debugging stuff (char screen[1024], dbg())
for modem support. Useful only with BDI2000.
- Interrupt support (PPC):
There are common interrupt_init() and timer_interrupt()
for all PPC archs. interrupt_init() calls interrupt_init_cpu()
for CPU specific initialization. interrupt_init_cpu()
should set decrementer_count to appropriate value. If
CPU resets decrementer automatically after interrupt
(ppc4xx) it should set decrementer_count to zero.
timer_interrupt() calls timer_interrupt_cpu() for CPU
specific handling. If board has watchdog / status_led
/ other_activity_monitor it works automatically from
general timer_interrupt().
- General:
In the target system modem support is enabled when a
specific key (key combination) is pressed during
power-on. Otherwise U-Boot will boot normally
(autoboot). The key_pressed() function is called from
board_init(). Currently key_pressed() is a dummy
function, returning 1 and thus enabling modem
initialization.
If there are no modem init strings in the
environment, U-Boot proceed to autoboot; the
previous output (banner, info printfs) will be
suppressed, though.
See also: doc/README.Modem
Board initialization settings:
------------------------------
During Initialization u-boot calls a number of board specific functions
to allow the preparation of board specific prerequisites, e.g. pin setup
before drivers are initialized. To enable these callbacks the
following configuration macros have to be defined. Currently this is
architecture specific, so please check arch/your_architecture/lib/board.c
typically in board_init_f() and board_init_r().
- CONFIG_BOARD_EARLY_INIT_F: Call board_early_init_f()
- CONFIG_BOARD_EARLY_INIT_R: Call board_early_init_r()
- CONFIG_BOARD_LATE_INIT: Call board_late_init()
- CONFIG_BOARD_POSTCLK_INIT: Call board_postclk_init()
Configuration Settings:
-----------------------
- CONFIG_SYS_LONGHELP: Defined when you want long help messages included;
undefine this when you're short of memory.
- CONFIG_SYS_HELP_CMD_WIDTH: Defined when you want to override the default
width of the commands listed in the 'help' command output.
- CONFIG_SYS_PROMPT: This is what U-Boot prints on the console to
prompt for user input.
- CONFIG_SYS_CBSIZE: Buffer size for input from the Console
- CONFIG_SYS_PBSIZE: Buffer size for Console output
- CONFIG_SYS_MAXARGS: max. Number of arguments accepted for monitor commands
- CONFIG_SYS_BARGSIZE: Buffer size for Boot Arguments which are passed to
the application (usually a Linux kernel) when it is
booted
- CONFIG_SYS_BAUDRATE_TABLE:
List of legal baudrate settings for this board.
- CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_INFO_QUIET
Suppress display of console information at boot.
- CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_IS_IN_ENV
If the board specific function
extern int overwrite_console (void);
returns 1, the stdin, stderr and stdout are switched to the
serial port, else the settings in the environment are used.
- CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_OVERWRITE_ROUTINE
Enable the call to overwrite_console().
- CONFIG_SYS_CONSOLE_ENV_OVERWRITE
Enable overwrite of previous console environment settings.
- CONFIG_SYS_MEMTEST_START, CONFIG_SYS_MEMTEST_END:
Begin and End addresses of the area used by the
simple memory test.
- CONFIG_SYS_ALT_MEMTEST:
Enable an alternate, more extensive memory test.
- CONFIG_SYS_MEMTEST_SCRATCH:
Scratch address used by the alternate memory test
You only need to set this if address zero isn't writeable
- CONFIG_SYS_MEM_TOP_HIDE (PPC only):
If CONFIG_SYS_MEM_TOP_HIDE is defined in the board config header,
this specified memory area will get subtracted from the top
(end) of RAM and won't get "touched" at all by U-Boot. By
fixing up gd->ram_size the Linux kernel should gets passed
the now "corrected" memory size and won't touch it either.
This should work for arch/ppc and arch/powerpc. Only Linux
board ports in arch/powerpc with bootwrapper support that
recalculate the memory size from the SDRAM controller setup
will have to get fixed in Linux additionally.
This option can be used as a workaround for the 440EPx/GRx
CHIP 11 errata where the last 256 bytes in SDRAM shouldn't
be touched.
WARNING: Please make sure that this value is a multiple of
the Linux page size (normally 4k). If this is not the case,
then the end address of the Linux memory will be located at a
non page size aligned address and this could cause major
problems.
- CONFIG_SYS_LOADS_BAUD_CHANGE:
Enable temporary baudrate change while serial download
- CONFIG_SYS_SDRAM_BASE:
Physical start address of SDRAM. _Must_ be 0 here.
- CONFIG_SYS_MBIO_BASE:
Physical start address of Motherboard I/O (if using a
Cogent motherboard)
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_BASE:
Physical start address of Flash memory.
- CONFIG_SYS_MONITOR_BASE:
Physical start address of boot monitor code (set by
make config files to be same as the text base address
(CONFIG_SYS_TEXT_BASE) used when linking) - same as
CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_BASE when booting from flash.
- CONFIG_SYS_MONITOR_LEN:
Size of memory reserved for monitor code, used to
determine _at_compile_time_ (!) if the environment is
embedded within the U-Boot image, or in a separate
flash sector.
- CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN:
Size of DRAM reserved for malloc() use.
- CONFIG_SYS_BOOTM_LEN:
Normally compressed uImages are limited to an
uncompressed size of 8 MBytes. If this is not enough,
you can define CONFIG_SYS_BOOTM_LEN in your board config file
to adjust this setting to your needs.
- CONFIG_SYS_BOOTMAPSZ:
Maximum size of memory mapped by the startup code of
the Linux kernel; all data that must be processed by
the Linux kernel (bd_info, boot arguments, FDT blob if
used) must be put below this limit, unless "bootm_low"
environment variable is defined and non-zero. In such case
all data for the Linux kernel must be between "bootm_low"
and "bootm_low" + CONFIG_SYS_BOOTMAPSZ. The environment
variable "bootm_mapsize" will override the value of
CONFIG_SYS_BOOTMAPSZ. If CONFIG_SYS_BOOTMAPSZ is undefined,
then the value in "bootm_size" will be used instead.
- CONFIG_SYS_BOOT_RAMDISK_HIGH:
Enable initrd_high functionality. If defined then the
initrd_high feature is enabled and the bootm ramdisk subcommand
is enabled.
- CONFIG_SYS_BOOT_GET_CMDLINE:
Enables allocating and saving kernel cmdline in space between
"bootm_low" and "bootm_low" + BOOTMAPSZ.
- CONFIG_SYS_BOOT_GET_KBD:
Enables allocating and saving a kernel copy of the bd_info in
space between "bootm_low" and "bootm_low" + BOOTMAPSZ.
- CONFIG_SYS_MAX_FLASH_BANKS:
Max number of Flash memory banks
- CONFIG_SYS_MAX_FLASH_SECT:
Max number of sectors on a Flash chip
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_ERASE_TOUT:
Timeout for Flash erase operations (in ms)
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_WRITE_TOUT:
Timeout for Flash write operations (in ms)
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_LOCK_TOUT
Timeout for Flash set sector lock bit operation (in ms)
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_UNLOCK_TOUT
Timeout for Flash clear lock bits operation (in ms)
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_PROTECTION
If defined, hardware flash sectors protection is used
instead of U-Boot software protection.
- CONFIG_SYS_DIRECT_FLASH_TFTP:
Enable TFTP transfers directly to flash memory;
without this option such a download has to be
performed in two steps: (1) download to RAM, and (2)
copy from RAM to flash.
The two-step approach is usually more reliable, since
you can check if the download worked before you erase
the flash, but in some situations (when system RAM is
too limited to allow for a temporary copy of the
downloaded image) this option may be very useful.
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_CFI:
Define if the flash driver uses extra elements in the
common flash structure for storing flash geometry.
- CONFIG_FLASH_CFI_DRIVER
This option also enables the building of the cfi_flash driver
in the drivers directory
- CONFIG_FLASH_CFI_MTD
This option enables the building of the cfi_mtd driver
in the drivers directory. The driver exports CFI flash
to the MTD layer.
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_USE_BUFFER_WRITE
Use buffered writes to flash.
- CONFIG_FLASH_SPANSION_S29WS_N
s29ws-n MirrorBit flash has non-standard addresses for buffered
write commands.
- CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_QUIET_TEST
If this option is defined, the common CFI flash doesn't
print it's warning upon not recognized FLASH banks. This
is useful, if some of the configured banks are only
optionally available.
- CONFIG_FLASH_SHOW_PROGRESS
If defined (must be an integer), print out countdown
digits and dots. Recommended value: 45 (9..1) for 80
column displays, 15 (3..1) for 40 column displays.
- CONFIG_FLASH_VERIFY
If defined, the content of the flash (destination) is compared
against the source after the write operation. An error message
will be printed when the contents are not identical.
Please note that this option is useless in nearly all cases,
since such flash programming errors usually are detected earlier
while unprotecting/erasing/programming. Please only enable
this option if you really know what you are doing.
- CONFIG_SYS_RX_ETH_BUFFER:
Defines the number of Ethernet receive buffers. On some
Ethernet controllers it is recommended to set this value
to 8 or even higher (EEPRO100 or 405 EMAC), since all
buffers can be full shortly after enabling the interface
on high Ethernet traffic.
Defaults to 4 if not defined.
- CONFIG_ENV_MAX_ENTRIES
Maximum number of entries in the hash table that is used
internally to store the environment settings. The default
setting is supposed to be generous and should work in most
cases. This setting can be used to tune behaviour; see
lib/hashtable.c for details.
- CONFIG_ENV_FLAGS_LIST_DEFAULT
- CONFIG_ENV_FLAGS_LIST_STATIC
Enable validation of the values given to environment variables when
calling env set. Variables can be restricted to only decimal,
hexadecimal, or boolean. If CONFIG_CMD_NET is also defined,
the variables can also be restricted to IP address or MAC address.
The format of the list is:
type_attribute = [s|d|x|b|i|m]
access_atribute = [a|r|o|c]
attributes = type_attribute[access_atribute]
entry = variable_name[:attributes]
list = entry[,list]
The type attributes are:
s - String (default)
d - Decimal
x - Hexadecimal
b - Boolean ([1yYtT|0nNfF])
i - IP address
m - MAC address
The access attributes are:
a - Any (default)
r - Read-only
o - Write-once
c - Change-default
- CONFIG_ENV_FLAGS_LIST_DEFAULT
Define this to a list (string) to define the ".flags"
envirnoment variable in the default or embedded environment.
- CONFIG_ENV_FLAGS_LIST_STATIC
Define this to a list (string) to define validation that
should be done if an entry is not found in the ".flags"
environment variable. To override a setting in the static
list, simply add an entry for the same variable name to the
".flags" variable.
- CONFIG_ENV_ACCESS_IGNORE_FORCE
If defined, don't allow the -f switch to env set override variable
access flags.
- CONFIG_SYS_GENERIC_BOARD
This selects the architecture-generic board system instead of the
architecture-specific board files. It is intended to move boards
to this new framework over time. Defining this will disable the
arch/foo/lib/board.c file and use common/board_f.c and
common/board_r.c instead. To use this option your architecture
must support it (i.e. must define __HAVE_ARCH_GENERIC_BOARD in
its config.mk file). If you find problems enabling this option on
your board please report the problem and send patches!
- CONFIG_SYS_SYM_OFFSETS
This is set by architectures that use offsets for link symbols
instead of absolute values. So bss_start is obtained using an
offset _bss_start_ofs from CONFIG_SYS_TEXT_BASE, rather than
directly. You should not need to touch this setting.
- CONFIG_OMAP_PLATFORM_RESET_TIME_MAX_USEC (OMAP only)
This is set by OMAP boards for the max time that reset should
be asserted. See doc/README.omap-reset-time for details on how
the value can be calulated on a given board.
The following definitions that deal with the placement and management
of environment data (variable area); in general, we support the
following configurations:
- CONFIG_BUILD_ENVCRC:
Builds up envcrc with the target environment so that external utils
may easily extract it and embed it in final U-Boot images.
- CONFIG_ENV_IS_IN_FLASH:
Define this if the environment is in flash memory.
a) The environment occupies one whole flash sector, which is
"embedded" in the text segment with the U-Boot code. This
happens usually with "bottom boot sector" or "top boot
sector" type flash chips, which have several smaller
sectors at the start or the end. For instance, such a
layout can have sector sizes of 8, 2x4, 16, Nx32 kB. In
such a case you would place the environment in one of the
4 kB sectors - with U-Boot code before and after it. With
"top boot sector" type flash chips, you would put the
environment in one of the last sectors, leaving a gap
between U-Boot and the environment.
- CONFIG_ENV_OFFSET:
Offset of environment data (variable area) to the
beginning of flash memory; for instance, with bottom boot
type flash chips the second sector can be used: the offset
for this sector is given here.
CONFIG_ENV_OFFSET is used relative to CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_BASE.
- CONFIG_ENV_ADDR:
This is just another way to specify the start address of
the flash sector containing the environment (instead of
CONFIG_ENV_OFFSET).
- CONFIG_ENV_SECT_SIZE:
Size of the sector containing the environment.
