      bnx2x: Separated FW from the source. · 0eae2a4d
      Vladislav Zolotarov authored
      >From now on FW will be downloaded from the binary file using request_firmware.
      
      There will be different files for every supported chip. Currently 57710 (e1) and
      57711 (e1h).
      
      File names have the following format: bnx2x-<chip version>-<FW version>.fw.
      ihex versions of current FW files are submitted in the next patch.
      
      Each binary file has a header in the following format:
      
      
      struct bnx2x_fw_file_section {
      	__be32 len;
      	__be32 offset;
      }
      
      struct bnx2x_fw_file_hdr {
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section init_ops;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section init_ops_offsets;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section init_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section tsem_int_table_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section tsem_pram_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section usem_int_table_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section usem_pram_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section csem_int_table_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section csem_pram_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section xsem_int_table_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section xsem_pram_data;
      	struct bnx2x_fw_file_section fw_version;
      }
      
      Each bnx2x_fw_file_section contains the length and the offset of the appropriate
      section in the binary file. Values are stored in the big endian format.
      
      Data types of arrays:
      
      init_data            __be32
      init_ops_offsets     __be16
      XXsem_pram_data         u8
      XXsem_int_table_data    u8
      init_ops             struct raw_op {
                                u8   op;
      			__be24 offset;
                              __be32 data;
      		     }
      fw_version              u8
      
      >From now boundaries of a specific initialization stage are stored in
      init_ops_offsets array instead of being defined by separate macroes. The index 
      in init_ops_offsets is calculated by BLOCK_OPS_IDX macro:
      
      #define BLOCK_OPS_IDX(block, stage, end) \
             (2*(((block)*STAGE_IDX_MAX) + (stage)) + (end))
      
      Security:
      
      In addition to sanity check of array boundaries bnx2x will check a FW version.
      Additional checks might be added in the future.

      These are available elsewhere (for example in the linux-firmware.git
      repository); they have no business being added to the kernel source
      tree.
      
      We are only putting stuff in the firmware/ directory of the kernel
      source when it's extracted from long-standing drivers which used to
      include it directly.
      
      We didn't intend to open the floodgates to including megabytes of new
      firmware which was previously being distributed separately.

      Looks like we forgot to update WHENCE when we converted this driver.
