      Bare CPU aka unknown means an SH-based system which is not one of the specific ones mentioned above, which means you need to enter all sorts of stuff like CONFIG_MEMORY_START because the config system doesn't already know what it is. You get a machine vector without any platform-specific code in it, so things like the RTC may not work.
      This option is for the early stages of porting to a new machine.



"Processor family"

    • default CPU_SH4
      This option determines the CPU family to compile for. Supported targets are SH-2, SH-3, and SH-4. These options are independent of CPU functionality. As such, SH-DSP users will still want to select their respective processor family in addition to the DSP support option.

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Default bootloader kernel arguments


  • Option: CMDLINE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Initial kernel command string"

    • depends on CMDLINE_BOOL
    • default "console=ttySC1,115200"
Platform-specific memory start and size definitions


  • Option: MEMORY_START
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Physical memory start address" if !MEMORY_SET || MEMORY_OVERRIDE

    • default "0x08000000" if !MEMORY_SET || MEMORY_OVERRIDE || !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && SH_ADX || SH_MPC1211 || SH_SH03 || SH_SECUREEDGE5410 || SH_SH4202_MICRODEV
    • default "0x0c000000" if !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && (SH_DREAMCAST || SH_HP600 || SH_BIGSUR || SH_SH2000 || SH_73180_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_7300_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_7751_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_HS7751RVOIP || SH_RTS7751R2D || SH_EDOSK7705)
      Computers built with Hitachi SuperH processors always map the ROM starting at address zero. But the processor does not specify the range that RAM takes.
      The physical memory (RAM) start address will be automatically set to 08000000, unless you selected one of the following processor types: SolutionEngine, Overdrive, HP620, HP680, HP690, in which case the start address will be set to 0c000000.
      Tweak this only when porting to a new machine which is not already known by the config system. Changing it from the known correct value on any of the known systems will only lead to disaster.


  • Option: MEMORY_SIZE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Physical memory size" if !MEMORY_SET || MEMORY_OVERRIDE

    • default "0x00400000" if !MEMORY_SET || MEMORY_OVERRIDE || !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && SH_ADX || !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && (SH_HP600 || SH_BIGSUR || SH_SH2000)
    • default "0x01000000" if !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && SH_DREAMCAST || SH_SECUREEDGE5410 || SH_EDOSK7705 default "0x02000000" if !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && (SH_73180_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_SOLUTION_ENGINE) default "0x04000000" if !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && (SH_7300_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_7751_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_HS7751RVOIP || SH_RTS7751R2D || SH_SH4202_MICRODEV)
    • default "0x08000000" if SH_MPC1211 || SH_SH03
      This sets the default memory size assumed by your SH kernel. It can be overridden as normal by the 'mem=' argument on the kernel command line. If unsure, consult your board specifications or just leave it as 0x00400000 which was the default value before this became configurable.


  • Option: MEMORY_SET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
    • depends on !MEMORY_OVERRIDE && (SH_MPC1211 || SH_SH03 || SH_ADX || SH_DREAMCAST || SH_HP600 || SH_BIGSUR || SH_SH2000 || SH_7751_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_SECUREEDGE5410 || SH_HS7751RVOIP || SH_RTS7751R2D || SH_SH4202_MICRODEV || SH_EDOSK7705)
    • default y
      This is an option about which you will never be asked a question. Therefore, I conclude that you do not exist - go away.
      There is a grue here.
If none of the above have set memory start/size, ask the user.


  • Option: MEMORY_OVERRIDE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Override default load address and memory size
XXX: break these out into the board-specific configs below

    • (on/off) Compact Flash Enabler support
    • depends on SH_ADX || SH_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_UNKNOWN || SH_CAT68701 || SH_SH03
      Compact Flash is a small, removable mass storage device introduced in 1994 originally as a PCMCIA device. If you say `Y' here, you compile in support for Compact Flash devices directly connected to a SuperH processor. A Compact Flash FAQ is available at <http://www.compactflash.org/faqs/faq.htm>.
      If your board has "Directly Connected" CompactFlash at area 5 or 6, you may want to enable this option. Then, you can use CF as primary IDE drive (only tested for SanDisk).
      If in doubt, select 'N'.


"Compact Flash Connection Area"

    • depends on CF_ENABLER
    • default CF_AREA6


  • Option: CF_AREA5
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Area5
      If your board has "Directly Connected" CompactFlash, You should select the area where your CF is connected to.
      - "Area5" if CompactFlash is connected to Area 5 (0x14000000) - "Area6" if it is connected to Area 6 (0x18000000)
      Area6 will work for most boards. For ADX, select Area5.

  • Option: BOOT_LINK_OFFSET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Link address offset for booting"

    • default "0x00800000"
      This option allows you to set the link address offset of the zImage. This can be useful if you are on a board which has a small amount of memory.


  • Option: CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Little Endian
      Some SuperH machines can be configured for either little or big endian byte order. These modes require different kernels. Say Y if your machine is little endian, N if it's a big endian machine.


  • Option: PREEMPT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Preemptible Kernel (EXPERIMENTAL)
    • depends on EXPERIMENTAL


  • Option: UBC_WAKEUP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Wakeup UBC on startup
      Selecting this option will wakeup the User Break Controller (UBC) on startup. Although the UBC is left in an awake state when the processor comes up, some boot loaders misbehave by putting the UBC to sleep in a power saving state, which causes issues with things like ptrace().
      If unsure, say N.


  • Option: SH_WRITETHROUGH
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Use write-through caching
    • default y if CPU_SH2
      Selecting this option will configure the caches in write-through mode, as opposed to the default write-back configuration.
      Since there's sill some aliasing issues on SH-4, this option will unfortunately still require the majority of flushing functions to be implemented to deal with aliasing.
      If unsure, say N.


  • Option: SH_OCRAM
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Operand Cache RAM (OCRAM) support
      Selecting this option will automatically tear down the number of sets in the dcache by half, which in turn exposes a memory range.
      The addresses for the OC RAM base will vary according to the processor version. Consult vendor documentation for specifics.
      If unsure, say N.


  • Option: SH_STORE_QUEUES
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Support for Store Queues
    • depends on CPU_SH4
      Selecting this option will enable an in-kernel API for manipulating the store queues integrated in the SH-4 processors.


  • Option: SMP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Symmetric multi-processing support
      This enables support for systems with more than one CPU. If you have a system with only one CPU, like most personal computers, say N. If you have a system with more than one CPU, say Y.
      If you say N here, the kernel will run on single and multiprocessor machines, but will use only one CPU of a multiprocessor machine. If you say Y here, the kernel will run on many, but not all, singleprocessor machines. On a singleprocessor machine, the kernel will run faster if you say N here.
      People using multiprocessor machines who say Y here should also say Y to "Enhanced Real Time Clock Support", below.
      See also the <file:Documentation/smp.txt>, <file:Documentation/nmi_watchdog.txt> and the SMP-HOWTO available at <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      If you don't know what to do here, say N.


  • Option: NR_CPUS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Maximum number of CPUs (2-32)" 2 32

    • depends on SMP
    • default "2"
      This allows you to specify the maximum number of CPUs which this kernel will support. The maximum supported value is 32 and the minimum value which makes sense is 2.
      This is purely to save memory - each supported CPU adds approximately eight kilobytes to the kernel image.


  • Option: HS7751RVOIP_CODEC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Support VoIP Codec section
    • depends on SH_HS7751RVOIP

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) RTS7751R2D Rev. 1.1 board support
    • depends on SH_RTS7751R2D
      Selecting this option will support version rev. 1.1.


  • Option: SH_PCLK_CALC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
    • default n if CPU_SUBTYPE_SH7300 || CPU_SUBTYPE_SH73180
    • default y
      This option will cause the PCLK value to be probed at run-time. It will display a notification if the probed value has greater than a 1% variance of the hardcoded CONFIG_SH_PCLK_FREQ.


  • Option: SH_PCLK_FREQ
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Peripheral clock frequency (in Hz)"

    • default "50000000" if CPU_SUBTYPE_SH7750
    • default "60000000" if CPU_SUBTYPE_SH7751
    • default "33333333" if CPU_SUBTYPE_SH7300
    • default "27000000" if CPU_SUBTYPE_SH73180
    • default "66000000" if CPU_SUBTYPE_SH4_202
    • default "1193182"
      This option is used to specify the peripheral clock frequency. This option must be set for each processor in order for the kernel to function reliably. If no sane default exists, we use a default from the legacy i8254. Any discrepancies will be reported on boot time with an auto-probed frequency which should be considered the proper value for your hardware.

CPU Frequency scalingEdit


  • Option: SH_CPU_FREQ
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SuperH CPU Frequency driver
    • depends on CPU_FREQ
    • select CPU_FREQ_TABLE
      This adds the cpufreq driver for SuperH. At present, only the SH-4 is supported.
      For details, take a look at <file:Documentation/cpu-freq>.
      If unsure, say N.





  • Option: HEARTBEAT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Heartbeat LED
    • depends on SH_MPC1211 || SH_SH03 || SH_CAT68701 || SH_STB1_HARP || SH_STB1_OVERDRIVE || SH_BIGSUR || SH_7751_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_7300_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_73180_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_SOLUTION_ENGINE || SH_RTS7751R2D || SH_SH4202_MICRODEV
      Use the power-on LED on your machine as a load meter. The exact behavior is platform-dependent, but normally the flash frequency is a hyperbolic function of the 5-minute load average.


  • Option: RTC_9701JE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) EPSON RTC-9701JE support
    • depends on SH_RTS7751R2D
      Selecting this option will support EPSON RTC-9701JE.



  • Option: ISA_DMA_API
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
    • depends on MPC1211
    • default y

Bus options (PCI, PCMCIA, EISA, MCA, ISA)Edit

Even on SuperH devices which don't have an ISA bus,
this variable helps the PCMCIA modules handle
IRQ requesting properly -- Greg Banks.
Though we're generally not interested in it when
we're not using PCMCIA, so we make it dependent on
PCMCIA outright. -- PFM.


  • Option: ISA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
    • default y if PCMCIA || SMC91X
      Find out whether you have ISA slots on your motherboard. ISA is the name of a bus system, i.e. the way the CPU talks to the other stuff inside your box. Other bus systems are PCI, EISA, MicroChannel (MCA) or VESA. ISA is an older system, now being displaced by PCI; newer boards don't support it. If you have ISA, say Y, otherwise N.


  • Option: EISA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
      The Extended Industry Standard Architecture (EISA) bus was developed as an open alternative to the IBM MicroChannel bus.
      The EISA bus provided some of the features of the IBM MicroChannel bus while maintaining backward compatibility with cards made for the older ISA bus. The EISA bus saw limited use between 1988 and 1995 when it was made obsolete by the PCI bus.
      Say Y here if you are building a kernel for an EISA-based machine.
      Otherwise, say N.


  • Option: MCA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
      MicroChannel Architecture is found in some IBM PS/2 machines and laptops. It is a bus system similar to PCI or ISA. See <file:Documentation/mca.txt> (and especially the web page given there) before attempting to build an MCA bus kernel.


  • Option: SBUS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)


  • Option: MAPLE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Maple Bus support
    • depends on SH_DREAMCAST
    • default y
