Paul Mackerras c9a2076dd3 execute1: Remember dest GPR, RC, OE, XER for slow operations
For multiply and divide operations, execute1 now records the
destination GPR number, RC and OE from the instruction, and the
XER value.  This means that the multiply and divide units don't
need to record those values and then send them back to execute1.
This makes the interface to those units a bit simpler.  They
simply report an overflow signal along with the result value, and
execute1 takes care of updating XER if necessary.

Paul Mackerras 39d18d2738 Make divider hang off the side of execute1
With this, the divider is a unit that execute1 sends operands to and
which sends its results back to execute1, which then send them to
writeback.  Execute1 now sends a stall signal when it gets a divide
or modulus instruction until it gets a valid signal back from the
divider.  Divide and modulus instructions are no longer marked as
single-issue.

The data formatting step that used to be done in decode2 for div
and mod instructions is now done in execute1.  We also do the
absolute value operation in that same cycle instead of taking an
extra cycle inside the divider for signed operations with a
negative operand.

Paul Mackerras 2167186b5f Make multiplier hang off the side of execute1
With this, the multiplier isn't a separate pipe that decode2 issues
instructions to, but rather is a unit that execute1 sends operands
to and which sends the result back to execute1, which then sends it
to writeback.  Execute1 now sends a stall signal when it gets a
multiply instruction until it gets a valid signal back from the
multiplier.

This all means that we no longer need to mark the multiply
instructions as single-issue.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt e4f475e17f sprs: Store common SPRs in register file
This stores the most common SPRs in the register file.

This includes CTR and LR and a not yet final list of others.

The register file is set to 64 entries for now. Specific types
are defined that can represent a GPR index (gpr_index_t) or
a GPR/SPR index (gspr_index_t) along with conversion functions
between the two.

On order to deal with some forms of branch updating both LR and
CTR, we introduced a delayed update of LR after a branch link.

Note: We currently stall the pipeline on such a delayed branch,
but we could avoid stalling fetch in that specific case as we
know we have a branch delay. We could also limit that to the
specific case where we need to update both CTR and LR.

This allows us to make bcreg, mtspr and mfspr pipelined. decode1
will automatically force the single issue flag on mfspr/mtspr to
a "slow" SPR.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt 501b6daf9b Add basic XER support
The carry is currently internal to execute1. We don't handle any of
the other XER fields.

This creates type called "xer_common_t" that contains the commonly
used XER bits (CA, CA32, SO, OV, OV32).

The value is stored in the CR file (though it could be a separate
module). The rest of the bits will be implemented as a separate
SPR and the two parts reconciled in mfspr/mtspr in latter commits.

We always read XER in decode2 (there is little point not to)
and send it down all pipeline branches as it will be needed in
writeback for all type of instructions when CR0:SO needs to be
updated (such forms exist for all pipeline branches even if we don't
yet implement them).

To avoid having to track XER hazards, we forward it back in EX1. This
assumes that other pipeline branches that can modify it (mult and div)
are running single issue for now.

One additional hazard to beware of is an XER:SO modifying instruction
in EX1 followed immediately by a store conditional. Due to our writeback
latency, the store will go down the LSU with the previous XER value,
thus the stcx. will set CR0:SO using an obsolete SO value.

I doubt there exist any code relying on this behaviour being correct
but we should account for it regardless, possibly by ensuring that
stcx. remain single issue initially, or later by adding some minimal
tracking or moving the LSU into the same pipeline as execute.

Missing some obscure XER affecting instructions like addex or mcrxrx.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt b513f0fb48 dcache: Add a dcache
This replaces loadstore2 with a dcache

The dcache unit is losely based on the icache one (same basic cache
layout), but has some significant logic additions to deal with stores,
loads with update, non-cachable accesses and other differences due to
operating in the execution part of the pipeline rather than the fetch
part.

The cache is store-through, though a hit with an existing line will
update the line rather than invalidate it.

This makes the exts[bhw] instructions do the sign extension in the

Paul Mackerras 374f4c536d writeback: Do data formatting and condition recording in writeback
This adds code to writeback to format data and test the result
against zero for the purpose of setting CR0.  The data formatter
is able to shift and mask by bytes and do byte reversal and sign
extension.  It can also put together bytes from two input
doublewords to support unaligned loads (including unaligned
byte-reversed loads).

The data formatter starts with an 8:1 multiplexer that is able
to direct any byte of the input to any byte of the output.  This
lets us rotate the data and simultaneously byte-reverse it.
The rotated/reversed data goes to a register for the unaligned
cases that overlap two doublewords.  Then there is per-byte logic
that does trimming, sign extension, and splicing together bytes
from a previous input doubleword (stored in data_latched) and the
current doubleword.  Finally the 64-bit result is tested to set
CR0 if rc = 1.

This removes the RC logic from the execute2, multiply and divide
units, and the shift/mask/byte-reverse/sign-extend logic from
loadstore2.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt d415e5544a fetch/icache: Fit icache in BRAM
The goal is to have the icache fit in BRAM by latching the output
into a register. In order to avoid timing issues , we need to give
the BRAM a full cycle on reads, and thus we souce the BRAM address
directly from fetch1 latched NIA.

(Note: This will be problematic if/when we want to hash the address,
we'll probably be better off having fetch1 latch a fully hashed address
along with the normal one, so the icache can use the former to address
the BRAM and pass the latter along)

One difficulty is that we cannot really stall the icache without adding
more combo logic that would break the "one full cycle" BRAM model. This
means that on stalls from decode, by the time we stall fetch1, it has
already gone to the next address, which the icache is already latching.

We work around this by having a "stash" buffer in fetch2 that will stash
away the icache output on a stall, and override the output of the icache
with the content of the stash buffer when unstalling.

This requires a rewrite of the stop/step debug logic as well. We now
do most of the hard work in fetch1 which makes more sense.

Note: Vivado is still not inferring an built-in output register for the
BRAMs. I don't want to add another cycle... I don't fully understand why
it wouldn't be able to treat current_row as such but clearly it won't. At
least the timing seems good enough now for 100Mhz, possibly more.

Paul Mackerras 7fe84220a5 decode: Avoid multiplexing from instruction reg fields to regfile address ports
This aims to simplify the logic between the instruction image and
the register file read address ports and reduce the size of the decode
tables.  With this patch, the input_reg_a column of the decode tables
can only select RA or zeroes, the input_reg_b column can only select
RB or a constant (0, -1, or an immediate value from the instruction),
and the input_reg_c columns can only select RS or zeroes.

That means that the rotate/shift/logical ops now have their first
input coming in via the input_reg_c column.  That means we need to
add a read_data3 field to the Decode2ToExecuteType record, but that
will go away again when we split out the rotate/mask/logical ops to
their own unit.

As a related but not tightly connected change, this patch also sets
the read1_enable signal to the register file be 0 when RA=0 and the
input_reg_a for the instruction is RA_OR_ZERO (previously it was 1).

Paul Mackerras 96b402a4bf Consolidate add/subtract instructions into a single op
All of the PPC add and subtract instructions, including carrying
and extended versions, do much the same arithmetic operation:

	result = (I xor A) + B + C

where A is the value from RA, I provides a logical inversion of A
(i.e. I is 0 or -1), B is either from RB or is a constant 0 or -1,
and C is 0, 1 or the carry bit from XER (CA).

To consolidate all the add/subtract instructions into a single
OP_ADD, we add a column to decode_rom_t to indicate when A should
be inverted, and change the input_carry field to a 3-state selector
to select C in the equation above.

This also adds a new "CONST_M1" value for input_reg_b_t to indicate
that B is a constant -1.  This allows us to implement addme and
subfme.

The addex instruction appears not to exist, so the comments referring
to it are removed.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt ec1868f7d2 register_file: Move GPRs into distributed RAM
The register file is currently implemented as a whole pile of individual
1-bit registers instead of LUT memory which is a huge waste of FPGA
space.

This is caused by the output signal exposing the register file to the
outside world for simulation debug.

This removes that output, and moves the dumping of the register file
to the register file module itself. This saves about 8% of fpga on
the little Arty A7-35T.

Paul Mackerras 58b06eb5f3 decode: Remove const fields from decode_rom_t
The const* fields of decode_rom_t drove multiplexers in decode2 that
picked out various instruction fields and put them into the const*
fields of the Decode2ToExecute1Type record, from where they were
used in execute1.  However, the code in execute1 can just as easily
use the appropriate fields of the original instruction word, since
that is now available in execute1.  This therefore changes the
code to do that, resulting in smaller decode tables.

Paul Mackerras c9e92483b8 decode: Push mtspr/mfspr register decoding down into execute1
Instead of doing mfctr, mflr, mftb, mtctr, mtlr as separate ops,
just pass down mfspr and mtspr ops with the spr number and let
execute1 decode which SPR we're addressing.  This will help reduce
the number of instruction bits decode1 needs to look at.

In fact we now pass down the whole instruction from decode2 to
execute1.  We will need more bits of the instruction in future,
and the tools should just optimize away any that we don't end
up using.  Since the 'aa' bit was just a copy of an instruction
bit, we can now remove it from the record.

Paul Mackerras 25b9450475 divider: Do absolute-value ops in divider instead of decode
This moves the negation of negative operands for signed divide and
modulus operations out of the decode2 stage and into the divider.
If either of the operands for a signed divide or modulus operation
is negative, the divider now takes an extra cycle to negate the
operands that are negative.

The interface to the divider now has an 'is_signed' signal rather
than a 'neg_result' signal, and the dividend and divisor can be
negative, so divider_tb had to be updated for the new interface.

The reason for doing this is that one of the worst timing violations
on the Arty A7-100 at 100MHz involved the carry chain in the adders
that did the negation of the dividend and divisor in the decode stage.
Moving the negations to a separate cycle fixes that and also seems to
reduce the total number of slice LUTs used.

Paul Mackerras d5bc6c8824 Add a divider unit and a testbench for it
This adds a divider unit, connected to the core in much the same way
that the multiplier unit is connected.  The division algorithm is
very simple-minded, taking 64 clock cycles for any division (even
32-bit division instructions).

The decoding is simplified by making use of regularities in the
instruction encoding for div* and mod* instructions.  Instead of
having PPC_* encodings from the first-stage decoder for each of the
different div* and mod* instructions, we now just have PPC_DIV and
PPC_MOD, and the inputs to the divider that indicate what sort of
division operation to do are derived from instruction word bits.
