stekernone more fetchbug catched, we are getting closer to become bffs, the fetcher and I02:16
mor1kx[mor1kx] skristiansson pushed 2 new commits to master:
mor1kxmor1kx/master c2e0636 Stefan Kristiansson: cappuccino/fetch: remove old mmu exception workarounds...03:10
mor1kxmor1kx/master 28fc6f4 Stefan Kristiansson: decode: remove branch after lsu op workaround...03:10
stekernI like when fixing bugs also increase performance, about 0.3% in coremark and 1.3% in dhrystone03:44
jonibo99youtube video of yesterday's teleconference04:11
andresjknice work stekern04:12
stekernjonibo99: great04:15
olofkjuliusb: Regarding my awesome mor1kx patch, I don't think I can do a pull request easily from this environment. Can you extract the patch from the mail, or should I post it as a file somewhere?07:11
olofkcool. I just read that the CERN guys are contributing VHDL and SystemVerilog support to Icarus. Does anyone know more about that?08:24
@juliusbolofk: cool yeah I'll pick it up and add it in14:47
@juliusbno worries14:47
@juliusband nice to hear CERN are paying to pimp Icarus up14:47
@juliusbout of interest - it's a small world. I was googling for the Synplify option "srs_instrumentation" which there appears to be only 1 link on the internet for... and it points me at this:
@juliusbStefan Wallentowitz project for multicore stuff14:48
@juliusbwe should get Stefan Wallentowitz to talk about his work at some point14:53
@juliusbmaybe a google hangout presentation14:53
@juliusbthey have a nice logo14:54
@juliusbwe need a nice logo14:54
stekernI'm not sure I'd call that 'nice', but I agree, we need a logo15:13
stekerndog that bites wings, or what was the consensus from the last gettohgether?15:14
@juliusbdog that bites wings?!?!?!15:19
stekernjuliusb: I'm pretty sure that was one of the ideas, yes, although I have to admit my memory might have been clouded by good beer at that occasion, olofk maybe remember better15:42
@juliusbhmm, coudl have been15:45
_franck_anyway, I dog that bites wings doesn't sound sexy....15:48
stekernI agree, we have to come up with something better15:51
mor1kx[mor1kx] skristiansson pushed 1 new commit to master:
mor1kxmor1kx/master 5d1dd71 Stefan Kristiansson: mor1kx/top: fix typo in default value for IBUS_WB_TYPE19:24
stekernjuliusb: do you have any strong feelings against this?
stekernMy reasoning for removing the enable signals on the registers (and the multiplier) is that the valid signal is anyways controlled correctly19:32
_franck_juliusb: I pushed a new branch on github/openOCD. You can give it a try.20:46
_franck_./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-usb_blaster_libftdi20:46
_franck_./src/openocd -f ./or1k_usb_blaster_adv.tcl20:47
_franck_juliusb, stekern : don't you think this ( should be pushed to opencores svn repo ?21:09
@juliusbstekern: multiply enables: is for power - you don't want that guy continually wiggling, especially through the multiplier21:54
@juliusbit's for low-power ASIC, mainly, anyway21:54
@juliusb_franck_: awesome, thanks21:55
@juliusb_franck_: regarding that patch to de0 nano - I don't know if it's occuring on other implementations21:56
@juliusbstekern: really have problems reading the SPI on this de0 nano. Bootrom won't do it, and my little SPI flash reader software won't, either. I can't see any changes to bootrom.S tracked in your tree, and the pinouts all look good. I can't figure out what the issue is.23:51
@juliusbwill investigate further.23:51
@juliusbtomorrow, that is23:51
@juliusbbut are you sure there's nothing fancy you did to make it work, other than do the SOF file method to generate the .jic and then burn that in?23:52
@juliusbactually, that's got nothing to do with the problem23:52
@juliusbthe problem is reading the part in general, I believe23:52
@juliusbanyway, will look further tomorrow evening23:52
@juliusbin the meantime I fixed some debugging-related bugs in the fetch unit of pronto23:52
@juliusbwould lock up if stepping into a l.j 023:53
@juliusbadded a test to check that, too23:53
