13.3. 2.9.0 (2023-05-16)

13.3.1. ⚠ BREAKING CHANGES

  • Libraries

    • EL3 Runtime

      • RAS

        • The previous RAS_EXTENSION is now deprecated. The equivalent functionality can be achieved by the following 2 options:

          • ENABLE_FEAT_RAS

          • RAS_FFH_SUPPORT

          See: replace RAS_EXTENSION with FEAT_RAS (9202d51)

  • Drivers

    • Authentication

      • unify REGISTER_CRYPTO_LIB

        See: unify REGISTER_CRYPTO_LIB (dee99f1)

    • Arm

      • Ethos-N

        • The Linux Kernel NPU driver can no longer directly configure and boot the NPU in a TZMP1 build. The API version has therefore been given a major version bump with this change.

          See: add protected NPU firmware setup (6dcf3e7)

        • Building the FIP when TZMP1 support is enabled in the NPU driver now requires a parameter to specify the NPU firmware file.

          See: load NPU firmware at BL2 (33bcaed)

  • Build System

    • BL2_AT_EL3 renamed to RESET_TO_BL2 across the repository.

      See: distinguish BL2 as TF-A entry point and BL2 running at EL3 (42d4d3b)

    • check boolean flags are not empty

      See: check boolean flags are not empty (1369fb8)

    • All input and output linker section names have been prefixed with the period character, e.g. cpu_ops -> .cpu_ops.

      See: always prefix section names with . (da04341)

    • The EXTRA_LINKERFILE build system variable has been replaced with the <IMAGE>_LINKER_SCRIPT_SOURCES variable. See the commit message for more information.

      See: permit multiple linker scripts (a6ff006)

    • The LINKERFILE, BL_LINKERFILE and <IMAGE_LINKERFILE> build system variables have been renamed. See the commit message for more information.

      See: clarify linker script generation (8227493)

13.6. 2.6.0 (2021-11-22)

13.6.1. ⚠ BREAKING CHANGES

  • Architecture

    • Activity Monitors Extension (FEAT_AMU)

      • The public AMU API has been reduced to enablement only to facilitate refactoring work. These APIs were not previously used.

        See: privatize unused AMU APIs (b4b726e)

      • The PLAT_AMU_GROUP1_COUNTERS_MASK platform definition has been removed. Platforms should specify per-core AMU counter masks via FCONF or a platform-specific mechanism going forward.

        See: remove PLAT_AMU_GROUP1_COUNTERS_MASK (6c8dda1)

  • Libraries

    • FCONF

      • FCONF is no longer added to BL1 and BL2 automatically when the FCONF Makefile (fconf.mk) is included. When including this Makefile, consider whether you need to add ${FCONF_SOURCES} and ${FCONF_DYN_SOURCES} to BL1_SOURCES and BL2_SOURCES.

        See: clean up source collection (e04da4c)

13.11.2. Changed

  • Build System

    • Warning levels are now selectable with W=<1,2,3>

    • Removed unneeded include paths in PLAT_INCLUDES

    • “Warnings as errors” (Werror) can be disabled using E=0

    • Support totally quiet output with -s flag

    • Support passing options to checkpatch using CHECKPATCH_OPTS=<opts>

    • Invoke host compiler with HOSTCC / HOSTCCFLAGS instead of CC / CFLAGS

    • Make device tree pre-processing similar to U-boot/Linux by:

      • Creating separate CPPFLAGS for DT preprocessing so that compiler options specific to it can be accommodated.

      • Replacing CPP with PP for DT pre-processing

  • CPU Support

    • Errata report function definition is now mandatory for CPU support files

      CPU operation files must now define a <name>_errata_report function to print errata status. This is no longer a weak reference.

  • Documentation

    • Migrated some content from GitHub wiki to docs/ directory

    • Security advisories now have CVE links

    • Updated copyright guidelines

  • Drivers

    • console: The MULTI_CONSOLE_API framework has been rewritten in C

    • console: Ported multi-console driver to AArch32

    • gic: Remove ‘lowest priority’ constants

      Removed GIC_LOWEST_SEC_PRIORITY and GIC_LOWEST_NS_PRIORITY. Platforms should define these if required, or instead determine the correct priority values at runtime.

    • delay_timer: Check that the Generic Timer extension is present

    • mmc: Increase command reply timeout to 10 milliseconds

    • mmc: Poll eMMC device status to ensure EXT_CSD command completion

    • mmc: Correctly check return code from mmc_fill_device_info

  • External Libraries

    • libfdt: Upgraded from 1.4.2 to 1.4.6-9

    • mbed TLS: Upgraded from 2.12 to 2.16

    This change incorporates fixes for security issues that should be reviewed to determine if they are relevant for software implementations using Trusted Firmware-A. See the mbed TLS releases page for details on changes from the 2.12 to the 2.16 release.

  • Library Code

    • compiler-rt: Updated lshrdi3.c and int_lib.h with changes from LLVM master branch (r345645)

    • cpu: Updated macro that checks need for CVE-2017-5715 mitigation

    • libc: Made setjmp and longjmp C standard compliant

    • libc: Allowed overriding the default libc (use OVERRIDE_LIBC)

    • libc: Moved setjmp and longjmp to the libc/ directory

  • Platforms

    • Removed Mbed TLS dependency from plat_bl_common.c

    • arm: Removed unused ARM_MAP_BL_ROMLIB macro

    • arm: Removed ARM_BOARD_OPTIMISE_MEM feature and build flag

    • arm: Moved several components into drivers/ directory

      This affects the SDS, SCP, SCPI, MHU and SCMI components

    • arm/juno: Increased maximum BL2 image size to 0xF000

      This change was required to accommodate a larger libfdt library

  • SCMI

    • Optimized bakery locks when hardware-assisted coherency is enabled using the HW_ASSISTED_COHERENCY build flag

  • SDEI

    • Added support for unconditionally resuming secure world execution after {{ SDEI }} event processing completes

      {{ SDEI }} interrupts, although targeting EL3, occur on behalf of the non-secure world, and may have higher priority than secure world interrupts. Therefore they might preempt secure execution and yield execution to the non-secure {{ SDEI }} handler. Upon completion of {{ SDEI }} event handling, resume secure execution if it was preempted.

  • Translation Tables (XLAT)

    • Dynamically detect need for Common not Private (TTBRn_ELx.CnP) bit

      Properly handle the case where ARMv8.2-TTCNP is implemented in a CPU that does not implement all mandatory v8.2 features (and so must claim to implement a lower architecture version).

13.11.3. Resolved Issues

  • Architecture

    • Incorrect check for SSBS feature detection

    • Unintentional register clobber in AArch32 reset_handler function

  • Build System

    • Dependency issue during DTB image build

    • Incorrect variable expansion in Arm platform makefiles

    • Building on Windows with verbose mode (V=1) enabled is broken

    • AArch32 compilation flags is missing $(march32-directive)

    • bl2: Missing prototype warning in bl2_arch_setup

    • bl31: Omission of Global Offset Table (GOT) section

  • Code Quality Issues

    • Multiple MISRA compliance issues

    • Potential NULL pointer dereference (Coverity-detected)

  • Drivers

    • mmc: Local declaration of scr variable causes a cache issue when invalidating after the read DMA transfer completes

    • mmc: ACMD41 does not send voltage information during initialization, resulting in the command being treated as a query. This prevents the command from initializing the controller.

    • mmc: When checking device state using mmc_device_state() there are no retries attempted in the event of an error

    • ccn: Incorrect Region ID calculation for RN-I nodes

    • console: Fix MULTI_CONSOLE_API when used as a crash console

    • partition: Improper NULL checking in gpt.c

    • partition: Compilation failure in VERBOSE mode (V=1)

  • Library Code

    • common: Incorrect check for Address Authentication support

    • xlat: Fix XLAT_V1 / XLAT_V2 incompatibility

      The file arm_xlat_tables.h has been renamed to xlat_tables_compat.h and has been moved to a common folder. This header can be used to guarantee compatibility, as it includes the correct header based on XLAT_TABLES_LIB_V2.

    • xlat: armclang unused-function warning on xlat_clean_dcache_range

    • xlat: Invalid mm_cursor checks in mmap_add and mmap_add_ctx

    • sdei: Missing context.h header

  • Platforms

    • common: Missing prototype warning for plat_log_get_prefix

    • arm: Insufficient maximum BL33 image size

    • arm: Potential memory corruption during BL2-BL31 transition

      On Arm platforms, the BL2 memory can be overlaid by BL31/BL32. The memory descriptors describing the list of executable images are created in BL2 R/W memory, which could be possibly corrupted later on by BL31/BL32 due to overlay. This patch creates a reserved location in SRAM for these descriptors and are copied over by BL2 before handing over to next BL image.

    • juno: Invalid behaviour when CSS_USE_SCMI_SDS_DRIVER is not set

      In juno_pm.c the css_scmi_override_pm_ops function was used regardless of whether the build flag was set. The original behaviour has been restored in the case where the build flag is not set.

  • Tools

    • fiptool: Incorrect UUID parsing of blob parameters

    • doimage: Incorrect object rules in Makefile

13.13. 1.6.0 (2018-09-21)

13.13.1. New Features

  • Addressing Speculation Security Vulnerabilities

    • Implement static workaround for CVE-2018-3639 for AArch32 and AArch64

    • Add support for dynamic mitigation for CVE-2018-3639

    • Implement dynamic mitigation for CVE-2018-3639 on Cortex-A76

    • Ensure {{ SDEI }} handler executes with CVE-2018-3639 mitigation enabled

  • Introduce RAS handling on AArch64

    • Some RAS extensions are mandatory for Armv8.2 CPUs, with others mandatory for Armv8.4 CPUs however, all extensions are also optional extensions to the base Armv8.0 architecture.

    • The Armv8 RAS Extensions introduced Standard Error Records which are a set of standard registers to configure RAS node policy and allow RAS Nodes to record and expose error information for error handling agents.

    • Capabilities are provided to support RAS Node enumeration and iteration along with individual interrupt registrations and fault injections support.

    • Introduce handlers for Uncontainable errors, Double Faults and EL3 External Aborts

  • Enable Memory Partitioning And Monitoring (MPAM) for lower EL’s

    • Memory Partitioning And Monitoring is an Armv8.4 feature that enables various memory system components and resources to define partitions. Software running at various ELs can then assign themselves to the desired partition to control their performance aspects.

    • When ENABLE_MPAM_FOR_LOWER_ELS is set to 1, EL3 allows lower ELs to access their own MPAM registers without trapping to EL3. This patch however, doesn’t make use of partitioning in EL3; platform initialisation code should configure and use partitions in EL3 if required.

  • Introduce ROM Lib Feature

    • Support combining several libraries into a self-called “romlib” image, that may be shared across images to reduce memory footprint. The romlib image is stored in ROM but is accessed through a jump-table that may be stored in read-write memory, allowing for the library code to be patched.

  • Introduce Backtrace Feature

    • This function displays the backtrace, the current EL and security state to allow a post-processing tool to choose the right binary to interpret the dump.

    • Print backtrace in assert() and panic() to the console.

  • Code hygiene changes and alignment with MISRA C-2012 guideline with fixes addressing issues complying to the following rules:

    • MISRA rules 4.9, 5.1, 5.3, 5.7, 8.2-8.5, 8.8, 8.13, 9.3, 10.1, 10.3-10.4, 10.8, 11.3, 11.6, 12.1, 14.4, 15.7, 16.1-16.7, 17.7-17.8, 20.7, 20.10, 20.12, 21.1, 21.15, 22.7

    • Clean up the usage of void pointers to access symbols

    • Increase usage of static qualifier to locally used functions and data

    • Migrated to use of u_register_t for register read/write to better match AArch32 and AArch64 type sizes

    • Use int-ll64 for both AArch32 and AArch64 to assist in consistent format strings between architectures

    • Clean up TF-A libc by removing non arm copyrighted implementations and replacing them with modified FreeBSD and SCC implementations

  • Various changes to support Clang linker and assembler

    • The clang assembler/preprocessor is used when Clang is selected. However, the clang linker is not used because it is unable to link TF-A objects due to immaturity of clang linker functionality at this time.

  • Refactor support APIs into Libraries

    • Evolve libfdt, mbed TLS library and standard C library sources as proper libraries that TF-A may be linked against.

  • CPU Enhancements

    • Add CPU support for Cortex-Ares and Cortex-A76

    • Add AMU support for Cortex-Ares

    • Implement Cortex-Ares erratum 1043202 workaround

    • Implement DSU erratum 936184 workaround

    • Check presence of fix for errata 843419 in Cortex-A53

    • Check presence of fix for errata 835769 in Cortex-A53

  • Translation Tables Enhancements

    • The xlat v2 library has been refactored in order to be reused by different TF components at different EL’s including the addition of EL2. Some refactoring to make the code more generic and less specific to TF, in order to reuse the library outside of this project.

  • SPM Enhancements

    • General cleanups and refactoring to pave the way to multiple partitions support

  • SDEI Enhancements

    • Allow platforms to define explicit events

    • Determine client EL from NS context’s SCR_EL3

    • Make dispatches synchronous

    • Introduce jump primitives for BL31

    • Mask events after CPU wakeup in {{ SDEI }} dispatcher to conform to the specification

  • Misc TF-A Core Common Code Enhancements

    • Add support for eXecute In Place (XIP) memory in BL2

    • Add support for the SMC Calling Convention 2.0

    • Introduce External Abort handling on AArch64 External Abort routed to EL3 was reported as an unhandled exception and caused a panic. This change enables Trusted Firmware-A to handle External Aborts routed to EL3.

    • Save value of ACTLR_EL1 implementation-defined register in the CPU context structure rather than forcing it to 0.

    • Introduce ARM_LINUX_KERNEL_AS_BL33 build option, which allows BL31 to directly jump to a Linux kernel. This makes for a quicker and simpler boot flow, which might be useful in some test environments.

    • Add dynamic configurations for BL31, BL32 and BL33 enabling support for Chain of Trust (COT).

    • Make TF UUID RFC 4122 compliant

13.13.2. Issues resolved since last release

  • No issues known at 1.5 release resolved in 1.6 release

13.13.3. Known Issues

  • DTB creation not supported when building on a Windows host. This step in the build process is skipped when running on a Windows host. Known issue from 1.5 version.

13.14. 1.5.0 (2018-03-20)

13.14.1. New features

  • Added new firmware support to enable RAS (Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability) functionality.

    • Secure Partition Manager (SPM): A Secure Partition is a software execution environment instantiated in S-EL0 that can be used to implement simple management and security services. The SPM is the firmware component that is responsible for managing a Secure Partition.

    • SDEI dispatcher: Support for interrupt-based {{ SDEI }} events and all interfaces as defined by the {{ SDEI }} specification v1.0, see SDEI Specification

    • Exception Handling Framework (EHF): Framework that allows dispatching of EL3 interrupts to their registered handlers which are registered based on their priorities. Facilitates firmware-first error handling policy where asynchronous exceptions may be routed to EL3.

      Integrated the TSPD with EHF.

  • Updated PSCI support:

    • Implemented PSCI v1.1 optional features MEM_PROTECT and SYSTEM_RESET2. The supported PSCI version was updated to v1.1.

    • Improved PSCI STAT timestamp collection, including moving accounting for retention states to be inside the locks and fixing handling of wrap-around when calculating residency in AArch32 execution state.

    • Added optional handler for early suspend that executes when suspending to a power-down state and with data caches enabled.

      This may provide a performance improvement on platforms where it is safe to perform some or all of the platform actions from pwr_domain_suspend with the data caches enabled.

  • Enabled build option, BL2_AT_EL3, for BL2 to allow execution at EL3 without any dependency on TF BL1.

    This allows platforms which already have a non-TF Boot ROM to directly load and execute BL2 and subsequent BL stages without need for BL1. This was not previously possible because BL2 executes at S-EL1 and cannot jump straight to EL3.

  • Implemented support for SMCCC v1.1, including SMCCC_VERSION and SMCCC_ARCH_FEATURES.

    Additionally, added support for SMCCC_VERSION in PSCI features to enable discovery of the SMCCC version via PSCI feature call.

  • Added Dynamic Configuration framework which enables each of the boot loader stages to be dynamically configured at runtime if required by the platform. The boot loader stage may optionally specify a firmware configuration file and/or hardware configuration file that can then be shared with the next boot loader stage.

    Introduced a new BL handover interface that essentially allows passing of 4 arguments between the different BL stages.

    Updated cert_create and fip_tool to support the dynamic configuration files. The COT also updated to support these new files.

  • Code hygiene changes and alignment with MISRA guideline:

    • Fix use of undefined macros.

    • Achieved compliance with Mandatory MISRA coding rules.

    • Achieved compliance for following Required MISRA rules for the default build configurations on FVP and Juno platforms : 7.3, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5 and 8.8.

  • Added support for Armv8.2-A architectural features:

    • Updated translation table set-up to set the CnP (Common not Private) bit for secure page tables so that multiple PEs in the same Inner Shareable domain can use the same translation table entries for a given stage of translation in a particular translation regime.

    • Extended the supported values of ID_AA64MMFR0_EL1.PARange to include the 52-bit Physical Address range.

    • Added support for the Scalable Vector Extension to allow Normal world software to access SVE functionality but disable access to SVE, SIMD and floating point functionality from the Secure world in order to prevent corruption of the Z-registers.

  • Added support for Armv8.4-A architectural feature Activity Monitor Unit (AMU)

    extensions.

    In addition to the v8.4 architectural extension, AMU support on Cortex-A75 was implemented.

  • Enhanced OP-TEE support to enable use of pageable OP-TEE image. The Arm standard platforms are updated to load up to 3 images for OP-TEE; header, pager image and paged image.

    The chain of trust is extended to support the additional images.

  • Enhancements to the translation table library:

    • Introduced APIs to get and set the memory attributes of a region.

    • Added support to manage both privilege levels in translation regimes that describe translations for 2 Exception levels, specifically the EL1&0 translation regime, and extended the memory map region attributes to include specifying Non-privileged access.

    • Added support to specify the granularity of the mappings of each region, for instance a 2MB region can be specified to be mapped with 4KB page tables instead of a 2MB block.

    • Disabled the higher VA range to avoid unpredictable behaviour if there is an attempt to access addresses in the higher VA range.

    • Added helpers for Device and Normal memory MAIR encodings that align with the Arm Architecture Reference Manual for Armv8-A (Arm DDI0487B.b).

    • Code hygiene including fixing type length and signedness of constants, refactoring of function to enable the MMU, removing all instances where the virtual address space is hardcoded and added comments that document alignment needed between memory attributes and attributes specified in TCR_ELx.

  • Updated GIC support:

    • Introduce new APIs for GICv2 and GICv3 that provide the capability to specify interrupt properties rather than list of interrupt numbers alone. The Arm platforms and other upstream platforms are migrated to use interrupt properties.

    • Added helpers to save / restore the GICv3 context, specifically the Distributor and Redistributor contexts and architectural parts of the ITS power management. The Distributor and Redistributor helpers also support the implementation-defined part of GIC-500 and GIC-600.

      Updated the Arm FVP platform to save / restore the GICv3 context on system suspend / resume as an example of how to use the helpers.

      Introduced a new TZC secured DDR carve-out for use by Arm platforms for storing EL3 runtime data such as the GICv3 register context.

  • Added support for Armv7-A architecture via build option ARM_ARCH_MAJOR=7. This includes following features:

    • Updates GICv2 driver to manage GICv1 with security extensions.

    • Software implementation for 32bit division.

    • Enabled use of generic timer for platforms that do not set ARM_CORTEX_Ax=yes.

    • Support for Armv7-A Virtualization extensions [DDI0406C_C].

    • Support for both Armv7-A platforms that only have 32-bit addressing and Armv7-A platforms that support large page addressing.

    • Included support for following Armv7 CPUs: Cortex-A12, Cortex-A17, Cortex-A7, Cortex-A5, Cortex-A9, Cortex-A15.

    • Added support in QEMU for Armv7-A/Cortex-A15.

  • Enhancements to Firmware Update feature:

    • Updated the FWU documentation to describe the additional images needed for Firmware update, and how they are used for both the Juno platform and the Arm FVP platforms.

  • Enhancements to Trusted Board Boot feature:

    • Added support to cert_create tool for RSA PKCS1# v1.5 and SHA384, SHA512 and SHA256.

    • For Arm platforms added support to use ECDSA keys.

    • Enhanced the mbed TLS wrapper layer to include support for both RSA and ECDSA to enable runtime selection between RSA and ECDSA keys.

  • Added support for secure interrupt handling in AArch32 sp_min, hardcoded to only handle FIQs.

  • Added support to allow a platform to load images from multiple boot sources, for example from a second flash drive.

  • Added a logging framework that allows platforms to reduce the logging level at runtime and additionally the prefix string can be defined by the platform.

  • Further improvements to register initialisation:

    • Control register PMCR_EL0 / PMCR is set to prohibit cycle counting in the secure world. This register is added to the list of registers that are saved and restored during world switch.

    • When EL3 is running in AArch32 execution state, the Non-secure version of SCTLR is explicitly initialised during the warmboot flow rather than relying on the hardware to set the correct reset values.

  • Enhanced support for Arm platforms:

    • Introduced driver for Shared-Data-Structure (SDS) framework which is used for communication between SCP and the AP CPU, replacing Boot-Over_MHU (BOM) protocol.

      The Juno platform is migrated to use SDS with the SCMI support added in v1.3 and is set as default.

      The driver can be found in the plat/arm/css/drivers folder.

    • Improved memory usage by only mapping TSP memory region when the TSPD has been included in the build. This reduces the memory footprint and avoids unnecessary memory being mapped.

    • Updated support for multi-threading CPUs for FVP platforms - always check the MT field in MPDIR and access the bit fields accordingly.

    • Support building for platforms that model DynamIQ configuration by implementing all CPUs in a single cluster.

    • Improved nor flash driver, for instance clearing status registers before sending commands. Driver can be found plat/arm/board/common folder.

  • Enhancements to QEMU platform:

    • Added support for TBB.

    • Added support for using OP-TEE pageable image.

    • Added support for LOAD_IMAGE_V2.

    • Migrated to use translation table library v2 by default.

    • Added support for SEPARATE_CODE_AND_RODATA.

  • Applied workarounds CVE-2017-5715 on Arm Cortex-A57, -A72, -A73 and -A75, and for Armv7-A CPUs Cortex-A9, -A15 and -A17.

  • Applied errata workaround for Arm Cortex-A57: 859972.

  • Applied errata workaround for Arm Cortex-A72: 859971.

  • Added support for Poplar 96Board platform.

  • Added support for Raspberry Pi 3 platform.

  • Added Call Frame Information (CFI) assembler directives to the vector entries which enables debuggers to display the backtrace of functions that triggered a synchronous abort.

  • Added ability to build dtb.

  • Added support for pre-tool (cert_create and fiptool) image processing enabling compression of the
