Change U-Boot Variables for Different rootfs / bootfs Partitions

ASuar.1

I am working with the STM32MP1-DK2 development board and am trying to use RAUC to do image updates. I am using an SD card with two bootfs and rootfs partitions with one pair being active at a time. Currently I'm in the uboot integration stage where I need to create a script to change the active bootfs and rootfs, below is an example that rauc provides.

I've looked at the uboot environment variables but can't seem to find which ones set boot and rootfs partition to use?

I see reference to a scan that is done to detect a bootfs but not sure how to modify it. For this application the partitions are going to not change so maybe it's better to remove the scan all together and hardcode the values.

uboot env:

altbootcmd=run bootcmd
android_mmc_boot=mmc dev ${devnum};run android_mmc_splash;run android_mmc_fdt;run android_mmc_kernel;bootm ${kernel_addr_r} - ${fdt_addr_r};

My final solution.

In the end I changed the first boot partition to just have the boot.scr.uimg since it needs to be in the first partition after u-boot. Then created another rootfs and two bootfs with all the typical bootfs stuff ie. kernel, device tree and custom extlinux file with the root partition line removed.

In my machine file:

# disable vendorfs partition
ST_BOOTFS   = "1"
ST_VENDORFS = "0"
ST_USERFS   = "1"
 
STM32MP_BOOTFS_IMAGE = "boot-script-image" # just has boot script
MY_BOOTFS_IMAGE = "my-image-bootfs" # has kernel, dtb and other boot stuff
 
# Proposed value for rootfs in kB
# Define max size for ROOTFS image being built to this value
IMAGE_ROOTFS_MAXSIZE = "1536864"
# And configure the ROOTFS_PARTITION_SIZE variable accordingly
ROOTFS_PARTITION_SIZE = "${IMAGE_ROOTFS_MAXSIZE}"
 
# add two new bootfs and rootfs partitions for updates
PARTITIONS_CONFIG += "bootfsrauca"
PARTITIONS_CONFIG += "rootfsrauc"
PARTITIONS_CONFIG += "bootfsraucb"
 
PARTITIONS_CONFIG[bootfsrauca]   ?= "${MY_BOOTFS_IMAGE},bootfsrauca,${STM32MP_BOOTFS_MOUNTPOINT},${BOOTFS_PARTITION_SIZE},System"
PARTITIONS_CONFIG[rootfsrauc]   = "${IMAGE_BASENAME},rootfsrauc,,${ROOTFS_PARTITION_SIZE},FileSystem"
PARTITIONS_CONFIG[bootfsraucb]   ?= "${MY_BOOTFS_IMAGE},bootfsraucb,${STM32MP_BOOTFS_MOUNTPOINT},${BOOTFS_PARTITION_SIZE},System"

Looks something like this:

Don't forget to add u-boot-fw-config-stm32mp to your image as rauc needs it to change the active partitions.

One small thing to make rauc work that needs to be done is renaming fw_env.config.mmc to fw_env.config. I created an append file to the just that in meta-my-layer/recipes-bsp/u-boot/u-boot-fw-config-stm32mp_%.bbappend:

do_install_append () {
	install -d ${D}${sysconfdir}
	install -m 0644 ${WORKDIR}/fw_env.config.mmc ${D}${sysconfdir}/fw_env.config
}

After all those changes I now have rauc working 😀

Hi @ASuar.1​ ,

The bootfs partition is dynamically found by looking at the first bootable partition (see scan_dev_for_extlinux in u-boot-env variables).

Then, rootfs is found in extlinux.conf file located in bootfs partition (root=PARTUUID=)

In your case, I would not recommand to use the automatic detected, but set ${devnum} depending on A/B state.

Thanks for the reply

Hey Christophe,

Thanks for the reply I can see the scan command and will replace the scan with hard coded values based on the active partition.

I am now trying to get uboot to run the boot.scr.uimg script as recommended by rauc. I've created a recipe called u-boot-rauc-script.bb

    SUMMARY = "Provide script file for U-Boot"
    LICENSE = "MIT"
    LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://${COREBASE}/meta/files/common-licenses/MIT;md5=0835ade698e0bcf8506ecda2f7b4f302"
     
    DEPENDS += "u-boot-mkimage-native"
     
    PACKAGE_ARCH = "${MACHINE_ARCH}"
     
    SRC_URI = "file://boot.sh"
     
    PV = "0.1"
     
    inherit kernel-arch extlinuxconf-stm32mp
     
    UBOOT_BOOTSCR = "${WORKDIR}/boot.sh"
    UBOOT_BOOTSCR_IMG = "boot.scr.uimg"
     
    UBOOT_INSTALL_DIR ?= "/boot"
     
    do_compile() {
        mkimage -C none -A ${UBOOT_ARCH} -O linux -T script -d ${UBOOT_BOOTSCR} ${B}/${UBOOT_BOOTSCR_IMG}
    }
     
    do_install() {
        install -d ${D}/${UBOOT_INSTALL_DIR}
        # Install boot script
        install -m 755 ${B}/${UBOOT_BOOTSCR_IMG} ${D}/${UBOOT_INSTALL_DIR}/${UBOOT_BOOTSCR_IMG}
    }
     
    FILES_${PN} = "${UBOOT_INSTALL_DIR}"

and a st-image-bootfs.bbappend to include the recipe in the bootfs that gets generated.

    PACKAGE_INSTALL += " \
        u-boot-rauc-script \
    "

 I can see the boot.scr.uimg in the first bootfs partition but when I boot the device I never see the script being run and when I run it myself I get an error.

    STM32MP> load mmc 0:4 0xc4100000 /boot/boot.scr.uimg
    STM32MP> source 0xc4100000
    ## Executing script at c4100000
    Wrong image format for "source" command

Do you know if I am missing a step or incorrectly compiled the boot script?

I see now it's because boot.scr.uimg' U-Boot script is executed only if 'extlinux/extlinux.conf' is not found.

https://wiki.st.com/stm32mpu/wiki/How_to_start_the_coprocessor_from_the_bootloader

A follow up question though? Is there recipe I can extend or method of rewriting the uboot variables?

In the end I actually did not have to rewrite any of the u-boot variables. I removed the extlinux/extlinux.conf file from my bootfs and had the boot.scr.uimg script change the variables i needed.

Asuar, your post help me a lot,

As a precision, I would say that

load mmc 0:4 0xc4100000 /boot/boot.scr.uimg

points to a file in {bootfspartition}/boot{dir}/boot.scr.uimg{file}

It may be obvious for you but not for me!

a good way to check is to load the file with load mmc and check its content using

md 0xc4100000, you should see the hex content of the file instead of FFFF

Seeya!

Don't forget to add u-boot-fw-config-stm32mp to your image as rauc needs it to change the active partitions.

One small thing to make rauc work that needs to be done is renaming fw_env.config.mmc to fw_env.config. I created an append file to the just that in meta-my-layer/recipes-bsp/u-boot/u-boot-fw-config-stm32mp_%.bbappend:

do_install_append () {
	install -d ${D}${sysconfdir}
	install -m 0644 ${WORKDIR}/fw_env.config.mmc ${D}${sysconfdir}/fw_env.config
}

After all those changes I now have rauc working 😀
