Category: Software Debug and Trace – ARM

Rejoice, Linux kernel newbies. Last week, I hacked an Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel, but the hack didn’t work; it turns out that the driver I chose isn’t used in my native Linux image on my PC. This week, I tackled the problem again, with success! And if I can do it, you can, too.
You can always count on Larry Traylor to crank out useful new content for engineers. This time, he’s updated our Application Note on UEFI Debugging using SourcePoint on Intel Platforms.
In the article JTAG and run-control API in BMCs for at-scale debug, I described how embedding the Intel ITP run-control library down on a service processor provides for a rich set of target-based functions for debug forensics. How might this apply to reading MSRs, such as the ones created to address Spectre and Meltdown.
