CONFIG_RISCV_SOC_CONTEXT_SAVE

Enable SOC-based context saving in IRQ handlers

Type: bool

Help

Enable low-level SOC-specific context management, for SOCs with extra state that must be saved when entering an interrupt/exception, and restored on exit. If unsure, leave this at the default value.

Enabling this option requires that the SoC provide a soc_context.h header which defines the following macros:

  • SOC_ESF_MEMBERS: structure component declarations to allocate space for. The last such declaration should not end in a semicolon, for portability. The generic RISC-V architecture code will allocate space for these members in a “struct soc_esf” type (typedefed to soc_esf_t), which will be available if arch.h is included.

  • SOC_ESF_INIT: structure contents initializer for struct soc_esf state. The last initialized member should not end in a comma.

The generic architecture IRQ wrapper will also call __soc_save_context and __soc_restore_context routines at ISR entry and exit, respectively. These should typically be implemented in assembly. If they were C functions, they would have these signatures:

void __soc_save_context(soc_esf_t *state);

void __soc_restore_context(soc_esf_t *state);

The calls obey standard calling conventions; i.e., the state pointer address is in a0, and ra contains the return address.
