Trying to port openwrt to the Siemens SE515


currently, the following things are done, but I’m not sure if they all are necessary:
* changed kernel load-address to 0x80010000
* enabled CFE and EARLY_PRINTK in Kconfig (EARLY_PRINTK was added from the opensourced old prom-Routines)
* disabled the mpi_init – does this device have a pci bus?

So for now, the kernel spits out the following (the MPI-line is a fake ;-)):

Linux version (sven@lenni) (gcc version 4.1.2) #27 Thu Feb 21 03:36:16 CET 2008
Broadcom BCM963xx prom init
Boot loader is : CFEv2
console [early0] enabled

Normal 0 -> 4000
Movable zone start PFN for each node
early_node_map[1] active PFN ranges
0: 0 -> 4000
Built 1 zonelists in Zone order, mobility grouping off. Total pages: 3969

As far as good. Now I’m stuck at the delay calibration… it just won’t change the Jiffies.

while (ticks == jiffies); – never changes… maybe it has something to do with the mpi-Stuff, but it is also possible, that a necessary interrupt-handler doesn’t exist which calls the jiffy-updater.

It looks like mips-boards from arch/mips is used in your build, which doesn’t initialize the timer interrupt properly. Instead, a port of the brcm-boards stuff has to be included in the build.

Check following: SE515 standard filesystem is cramfs, of course big-endian? So the propriate fs driver has to be included statically in the kernel and the filesystem has to be compiled with mkcramfs (big-endian)? In addition the flash layout has to be set (see drivers\mtd\maps)? I assume the bootline of the kernel is correct?
