I just tagged and pushed skiboot-5.1.13
Release notes below:
skiboot-5.1.13 was released on Wed January 27th, 2016.
skiboot-5.1.13 is the 14th stable release of 5.1, it follows skiboot-5.1.12
(which was released December 4th, 2015). This release contains bug fixes.
- core/device.c: Sort nodes with name at unit names by unit
- This gives predictable device tree ordering to the payload
- This means that utilities such as "lspci" will always return the same
- Add OPAL_CONSOLE_FLUSH to the OPAL API
uart consoles only flush output when polled. The Linux kernel calls
these pollers frequently, except when in a panic state. As such, panic
messages are not fully printed unless the system is configured to reboot
This patch adds a new call to the OPAL API to flush the buffer. If the
system has a uart console (i.e. BMC machines), it will incrementally
flush the buffer, returning if there is more to be flushed or not. If
the system has a different console, the function will have no effect.
This will allow the Linux kernel to ensure that panic message have been
fully printed out.
- hmi: Identify the phb upon CAPI malfunction alert
Previously, any error on a CAPI adapter would assume PHB0.
This could cause issues on Firestone machines.
- Fix displaying 'cleared' gard records
When a garded component is replaced hostboot detects this and updates the
Previously, there was ambiguity on if the gard record ID or the whole gard
record needed to be erased. This fix makes gard and hostboot agree.
- fix spacing in slot name
The other SlotN names have no space.
OPAL Architect, IBM.
