Hi there Matthew Gretton-Dann, or Richard Earnshaw, or anybody that
knows about this...
I moved from cortex-m3 to cortex-r4, just to discover that the
assembler seems to know nothing about banked registers, SRS/RTE
instructions and the like, which is worrying, as these AFAIK are basic
features for armv7-r/a architectures without any security or
Then I came around these posts that seem to imply that all this stuff
is suported as pasrt of the "virt" extension for the armv7-a
architecture. Am I right so far?
So, if that is the case, Do you have apropriate patches like these in
some ftp for latest binutils 2.23.1?
Otherwise, how can I make the binutils to recognize this stuff?
I'll appreciate a quick answer, although I understand that, so close
to holidays might make people to not read this list at all... :)
