aarch64-cpu

Low level access to processors using the AArch64 execution state.

This project is developed and maintained by the Cortex-A team.

Documentation

Minimum Supported Rust Version (MSRV)

This crate is guaranteed to compile on current stable Rust. It might compile with older versions but that may change in any new patch release.

Usage

Please note that for using this crate's register definitions (as provided by aarch64_cpu::registers::*), you need to also import aarch64_cpu::registers::{Readable, Writeable}.

Example

Check out https://github.com/rust-embedded/rust-raspberrypi-OS-tutorials for usage examples. Listed below is a snippet of rust-raspberrypi-OS-tutorials's early boot code.

use aarch64_cpu::{asm, registers::*};

// Some parts omitted for brevity.

unsafe fn prepare_el2_to_el1_transition(
    virt_boot_core_stack_end_exclusive_addr: u64,
    virt_kernel_init_addr: u64,
) {
    // Enable timer counter registers for EL1.
    CNTHCTL_EL2.write(CNTHCTL_EL2::EL1PCEN::SET + CNTHCTL_EL2::EL1PCTEN::SET);

    // No offset for reading the counters.
    CNTVOFF_EL2.set(0);

    // Set EL1 execution state to AArch64.
    HCR_EL2.write(HCR_EL2::RW::EL1IsAarch64);

    // Set up a simulated exception return.
    SPSR_EL2.write(
        SPSR_EL2::D::Masked
            + SPSR_EL2::A::Masked
            + SPSR_EL2::I::Masked
            + SPSR_EL2::F::Masked
            + SPSR_EL2::M::EL1h,
    );
}
