== r5152: Change in PS/2 keyboard API ==
+
 
+
Applicable if: local changes/additions to Super I/Os.
+
 
+
The [http://www.coreboot.org/pipermail/coreboot/2010-February/056012.html name and function prototype of the PS/2 keyboard initialization function changed]:
+
 
+
-void init_pc_keyboard('''unsigned port0, unsigned port1''', struct pc_keyboard *kbd);
+
+void pc_keyboard_init(struct pc_keyboard *keyboard);
+
 
+
This dismisses the first two arguments (which had to be the constant values 0x60, 0x64 before). This should only have an impact on locally developed Super I/O code that might require to follow this change. The changes required for porting old code are usually of the form:
+
 
+
-init_pc_keyboard('''0x60, 0x64''', 0);
+
+pc_keyboard_init(0);
+
 
+
or
+
 
+
-init_pc_keyboard('''res0->base, res1->base''', &conf->keyboard);
+
+pc_keyboard_init(&conf->keyboard);
+
 
+
== r5162: Move crt0s away from user servicable parts in the build system ==
+
 
+
Applicable if: local changes/additions to mainboards
+
 
+
The crt0s variable in the buildsystem, which collects the various parts that are combined to crt0.o, is [http://www.coreboot.org/pipermail/coreboot/2010-February/056062.html setup generically] now.
+
 
+
This change must be replicated with local mainboard changes/additions. It should be enough to simply '''remove all crt0s entries''' from <code>src/mainboard/$(MAINBOARDDIR)/Makefile.inc</code>.
+
 
+
If you want to check the behaviour:
+
* apply the Makefile patch (which adds the printcrt0s rule) to your tree
+
* run "make printcrt0s", note the result
+
* apply the entire patch
+
* run "make printcrt0s", and compare the results
+
 
+
== r5167: Reorganize i82801 southbridge drivers ==
+
 
+
Applicable if: your mainboard uses the i82801xx, i82801dbm, i82801ca or i82801er driver (Intel ICH).
+
 
+
The drivers have been unified and split up.
+
 
+
* If your mainboard has an ICH0 or ICH (ie. i810 based boards) use the i82801ax driver
+
* If your mainboard has an ICH2 driver (ie. i815 based boards) use the i82801bx driver
+
* If your mainboard used the i82801ca driver before use the i82801cx driver
+
* If your mainboard used the i82801dbm driver before use the i82801dx driver
+
* If your mainboard used the i82801er driver before use the i82801ex driver
