1			Samsung ARM Linux Overview
2			==========================
3	
4	Introduction
5	------------
6	
7	  The Samsung range of ARM SoCs spans many similar devices, from the initial
8	  ARM9 through to the newest ARM cores. This document shows an overview of
9	  the current kernel support, how to use it and where to find the code
10	  that supports this.
11	
12	  The currently supported SoCs are:
13	
14	  - S3C24XX: See Documentation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX/Overview.txt for full list
15	  - S3C64XX: S3C6400 and S3C6410
16	  - S5PC110 / S5PV210
17	
18	
19	S3C24XX Systems
20	---------------
21	
22	  There is still documentation in Documnetation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX/ which
23	  deals with the architecture and drivers specific to these devices.
24	
25	  See Documentation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX/Overview.txt for more information
26	  on the implementation details and specific support.
27	
28	
29	Configuration
30	-------------
31	
32	  A number of configurations are supplied, as there is no current way of
33	  unifying all the SoCs into one kernel.
34	
35	  s5pc110_defconfig - S5PC110 specific default configuration
36	  s5pv210_defconfig - S5PV210 specific default configuration
37	
38	
39	Layout
40	------
41	
42	  The directory layout is currently being restructured, and consists of
43	  several platform directories and then the machine specific directories
44	  of the CPUs being built for.
45	
46	  plat-samsung provides the base for all the implementations, and is the
47	  last in the line of include directories that are processed for the build
48	  specific information. It contains the base clock, GPIO and device definitions
49	  to get the system running.
50	
51	  plat-s3c24xx is for s3c24xx specific builds, see the S3C24XX docs.
52	
53	  plat-s5p is for s5p specific builds, and contains common support for the
54	  S5P specific systems. Not all S5Ps use all the features in this directory
55	  due to differences in the hardware.
56	
57	
58	Layout changes
59	--------------
60	
61	  The old plat-s3c and plat-s5pc1xx directories have been removed, with
62	  support moved to either plat-samsung or plat-s5p as necessary. These moves
63	  where to simplify the include and dependency issues involved with having
64	  so many different platform directories.
