Release is to happen today: based on our previous lessons about doing things at the last minute, we won't commit to both finishing this, testing it and then doing a rollout. I will keep the bug as Critical, which means it will be done over the next few days, but will not be in 2012.11 release.

After discussion on IRC with Fahad, it seems that u-boot binary being used can not easily load any boot scripts from the boot partition (unlike Linaro's u-boot which loads boot.scr). Since the used u-boot is proprietary, we can't really establish how to get it to take parameters we want to pass to it automatically.

We can only extend l-i-t to allow one to use u-boot commands to load the script manually, but I am not sure if that's the desired approach.

U-Boot is GPL, we can't ship a proprietary U-Boot; if it's a pre-existing firmware, the only solution is to conform to whatever it's allowing to interface with, but if it's based on U-Boot there should definitely be the source available for download...

you can download u-boot source code for origen4 quad from http://git.insignal.co.kr/insignal/u-boot/tree/?h=exynos-ics
And also, you can download bl1 image from http://www.origenboard.org/wiki/index.php/WiKi#Download_Proprietary

It includes a binary firmware code to enable secure boot. BL1 is built from the source and the firmware binary is added to it. BL2 is built from the source. Please update whether it is an accepted solution.

Yes, it's similar to our current Origen support.

But in current Origen u-boot, there is no firmware binary involved. Currently I need to get confirmations -
1. From Samsung that it is ok to put the firmware binary in u-boot tree (without the license) (Approval pending)
2. Whether it is ok to use the firmware binary in GPL u-boot.

Mark wontfix for Linaro Ubuntu. It isn't planned to have a hwpack atm.
In addition, bl1 issue is still not sorted.
We can revisit the Origen 4412 support later if there's interest and bl1 issue is sorted.
Indeed, patches are welcome.

Insignal has released the u-boot binaries. It has a total of 4 components.

bl1 - firmware binary, at offset sector 1
bl2 - spl binary, at offset sector 31
bl3 - u-boot binary, at offset sector 63
bl4 - trustzone firmware binary, at offset 761

Need to modify l-(a)-m-c to support this new structure.
