This article should help people who are writting a devicetree.cb for their system.

What you will need

  • lspci -nvvv output

Introduction

The mainboard's devicetree.cb file contains many build and platform configuration settings. One of the most important items is the mainboard device list.

A device needs to be listed in the mainboard devicetree.cb if it requires more setup than standard PCI initialization (resource allocation). Typically, that includes the CPU, northbridge, southbridge, and Super I/O. These devices are usually required for system specific configuration as well as indicate the system bus structure (pci_domain).

When a device in devicetree.cb is found during the coreboot PCI/system scan process the functions to do customized initialization are called via the device_operations and the chip_operations structures. You will find these structures in the devices source files.
