boot_loader: Only load old package states in the boot menu

Normal boots should not be slowed down by old package states.

Should fix #12498.

Later I will fix the package kit to merge old states so they don't build up
indefinitely.

Boot options: add help text to state selection

To indicate this is a menu you can enter to select a previous
state to boot. Also rename "Latest version" to "Latest state" as
that is more correct.
Thanks waddlesplash for pointers.

Boot loader: Add support for choosing an old packages state

For potential boot volumes with older packages states the respective
item in the boot volume menu now has a sub menu for selecting a state.
The boot loader functionality for this feature is complete -- i.e. the
respective kernel is loaded and the name of the old state is added to
the kernel args -- but kernel packagefs and package daemon support is
still missing.

# 8540ec24 19-Jan-2014 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Save previous session's debug syslog during boot

Add boot loader debug menu option "Save syslog from previous session
during boot". If enabled (defaults to true), the previous session's
debug syslog data is copy to a separate buffer and passed to the
kernel, which writes it back to the file /var/log/previous_syslog.
As long as Haiku still boots, this should now be the most convenient way
to retrieve the output from a kernel crash.


# a3fe978f 10-Dec-2013 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

boot loader: Always show 4 GB memory limit safemode option

On x86 we mainly want to disable PAE, which is now also used with less
memory as long as NX support is available. Ideally we'd check this
condition as well and only add the menu item, if the kernel would
enable PAE.


# 65947ae5 30-Nov-2013 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

boot loader: blacklist menu: Set different title when disabled

When booting from CD (or when no boot volume has been selected)
blacklisting isn't supported. In that case let the menu title indicated
that.

boot loader: Add safe mode blacklist submenu

It's a browser for the system package content, where entries can be
selected to blacklist them. The selected entries are removed from the
packagefs instance in the boot loader, so that e.g. selected drivers
won't be picked up. The paths are also added to the safe mode driver
settings and will be interpreted when the system packagefs instance is
mounted by the kernel.

boot loader: Menu[Item] API improvements

* Make Menu and MenuItem polymorphic.
* MenuItem:
- Make SetMarked() virtual, so it can be overridden.
- Add SetSubmenu() and Supermenu().
- Delete the submenu in the destructor.
* Menu:
- Add Entered()/Exited() hooks. They frame the time the user navigates
the menu or any of its submenus. The hooks allow for subclasses
populating their item list dynamically.
- Add SortItems().
* Update boot loader menu copyright text to include 2013, now that it is
over soon. :-)


# 4b723e3f 06-May-2013 Axel Dörfler <axeld@pinc-software.de>

boot loader: Almost removed use of kernel_cpp.h.

* For some reason that is beyond me, fat/CachedBlock.cpp needs this header,
or else building the boot loader fails.


# 69a8b954 23-Jun-2012 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

FixedWidthPointer: Fix ==/!= operators, remove OtherType casts

* FixedWidthPointer:
- operators ==/!=: Change second operand type from void* to const
Type*. Also add non-const version to resolve ambiguity warning when
comparing with non-const pointer.
- Add Pointer() getter.
- Remove templatized cast operators. They are nice for casting the
pointer directly to another pointer type, but result in ambiguity.
* Make preloaded_image::debug_string_table non-const. Avoids clashes of
the const and non-coast FixedWidthPointer comparison operators. A
cleaner (but more verbose) solution would be to spezialize
FixedWidthPointer for const types.


# 17a33898 21-Jun-2012 Alex Smith <alex@alex-smith.me.uk>

Remove phys_addr_range, just use addr_range for both virtual and physical address ranges (as requested by Ingo).


# 93cb9538 20-Jun-2012 Alex Smith <alex@alex-smith.me.uk>

Don't store a KMessage in kernel_args for the boot volume, only the buffer address/size.

Pointers in kernel_args are going to be changed to unconditionally use 64-bit
storage (to make kernel_args compatible with both the x86 and x86_64 kernels).
KMessage stores a pointer to its buffer, however since KMessage is used
outside of the boot code it is undesirable to change it to use 64-bit storage
for the pointer as it may add additional overhead on 32-bit builds. Therefore,
only store the buffer address and size and then construct a KMessage from
those in the kernel.


# 34f10aee 08-Mar-2012 Humdinger <humdingerb@gmail.com>

# d11ea2b5 17-Jun-2011 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Introduce BootVolume abstraction class

BootVolume is initialized from a root directory of a volume. It finds
the system directory, and -- not implemented yet -- mounts the system
package, if the system is packaged, replacing the system directory with
it. Adjusted several functionality (main(), the loader functions,
user_menu()) to use BootVolume instead of the root directory.


# 5e78920c 12-Jun-2011 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

* Added platform_debug_get_log_buffer() which returns the debug log buffer and
its size.
* Added "Display current boot loader log" item to the "Debug Options" boot
loader menu. It displays what the boot loader has logged so far. Might be
interesting for early boot issues when serial debugging is not possible.

# 8837310c 23-May-2011 Rene Gollent <anevilyak@gmail.com>

* Slightly alter the semantics of the input gathering function to take the
menu item it's associated with rather than an input string. This allows it
to calculate the position to start the input at, as well as the correct
line to place it on. The previous solution always put the input at the
center line, which happened to be the right place by happy coincidence
unless one also had the menu items for viewing/saving the debug syslog
present.
* Implement input buffer scrolling, and consequently lift the previous size
limit on user input (it is now only limited by the size of the passed in
buffer).
* Implement parsing of the input buffer to allow it to handle comma-separated
options. Thus, one can now input things like "disable_smp true, serial_debug_output false"
and it will be handled properly.

# d2b49a00 18-May-2011 Rene Gollent <anevilyak@gmail.com>

* Implement support for user input of additional safe mode options that
aren't otherwise exposed via the safe mode menus. The option can be
found under the debug options menu, where additional settings can be
added one at a time with the same syntax used in kernel settings files
(i.e. disable_acpi on).

Scrolling of the input buffer is not yet supported (will implement that
soon), so currently the input is clamped to the size of one line. This
shouldn't be a problem for our current set of options though.

# e21407d0 14-May-2011 Rene Gollent <anevilyak@gmail.com>

When applying settings from the boot menus, aggregate them and then add them
to the kernel args in a single go. Otherwise we wind up with more link list
entries than expected, which in turn resulted in settings not quite being
parsed properly upon entering the kernel, which meant that if options were
chosen in both the debug and safe mode menus, only the debug ones were
applied. This might also have resulted in the kernel settings not being
loaded correctly in such an instance.

Should fix various issues people have had with safe mode settings not being
applied properly.

open_from() has got an optional "permissions" parameter for that purpose.
* Fixed errno. It would crash when being used. Also changed the POSIX functions
to return their error code via errno as expected.
* Added writev().
* FAT file system:
- Added support for reading long file names.
- Added support for creating files (8.3 name only) and writing to them.
- Enabled scanning partitions with it.
* Boot loader menu:
- Enabled the "Reboot" menu item unconditionally.
- Added "Save syslog from previous session" menu item to the debug menu.
Currently saving the syslog to FAT32 volumes is supported.

# 28a2172c 11-Mar-2010 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

kernel:
* The kernel syslog ring buffer is no longer emptied by the syslog sender
thread. Instead we only drop the oldest data from the buffer when we're
writing to it and there's not enough free space in it.
Advantages: We drop old data rather than the most recent data when the buffer
is full. The "syslog" KDL command has more data available now. So the odds
are that kernel syslog messages not written to disk yet are at least still
in the kernel buffer.
* Changed dprintf_no_syslog() semantics: Now it writes to the syslog, but
doesn't notify the syslog sender thread.

boot loader:
* Added the ring_buffer implementation and a dummy user_memcpy().
* bios_x86: Moved the syslog stuff from serial.{cpp,h} to debug.{cpp.h}.
* Moved the debug options from the "Select safe mode options" menu to a new
"Select debug options" menu.
* Added option "Enable debug syslog" to the new menu (ATM available on x86
only). It allocates a 1 MB in-memory buffer for the syslog for this session
in such a way that it can be accessed by the boot loader after a reset.
* Added item "Display syslog from previous session" to the new menu, doing
what its name suggests.

the function shall nevertheless return the length of the string that would
be written, if the buffer were large enough.
Added a touch of C++ while doing that. :-)
* Fixed the instances in boot loader, kernel, and kernel modules where the
wrong semantics were expected. The majority of uses actually.

# 6242fd59 08-Nov-2009 Axel Dörfler <axeld@pinc-software.de>

* Added the possibility to debug latency issues with spinlocks.
* When DEBUG_SPINLOCK_LATENCIES is 1, the system will panic if any spinlock is
held longer than DEBUG_LATENCY micro seconds (currently 200). If your system
doesn't boot anymore, a new safemode setting can disable the panic.
* Besides some problems during boot when the MTRRs are set up, 200 usecs work
fine here if all debug output is turned off (the output stuff is definitely
problematic, though I don't have a good idea on how to improve upon it a lot).
* Renamed the formerly BeOS compatible safemode settings to look better; there
is no need to be compatible there.

* Added option for enabling serial debug output.
* Moved device_manager/settings.cpp to debug/safemode_settings.cpp.
* Removed the somewhat hacky concatenation of kernel settings and safemode
settings in the boot loader. Instead, get_safemode_option() will now fall
back to the kernel settings, if it couldn't spot a setting in the safemode
settings. This allows for more control, and also makes enabling serial
debug output actually work (ie. overriding the kernel settings via safemode
options).
* Adjusted debug_init_post_vm(), and smp_init_other_cpus() to use
get_safemode_boolean().
* Therefore, I added safemode_settings.cpp to the boot loader as well.

# 9e8dc2a9 14-Jul-2007 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

[Sorry, couldn't split this one up any further.]
* Images preloaded by the boot loader had to be modules to be of any use
to the kernel. Extended the mechanism so that any images not accepted
by the module code would later be tried to be added as drivers by the
devfs. This is a little hacky ATM, since the devfs manages the drivers
using a hash map keyed by the drivers inode ID, which those drivers
obviously don't have.
* The devfs emulates read_pages() using read(), if the device driver
doesn't implement the former (all old-style drivers), thus making it
possible to BFS, which uses the file cache which in turn requires
read_pages(), on the device. write_pages() emulation is still missing.
* Replaced the kernel_args::boot_disk structure by a KMessage, which can
more flexibly be extended and deals more gracefully with
arbitrarily-size data. The disk_identifier structure still exists,
though. It is added as message field in cases where needed (non net
boot). Moved the boot_drive_number field of the bios_ia32 platform
specific args into the message.
* Made the stage 1 PXE boot loader superfluous. Moved the relevant
initialization code into the stage 2 loader, which can now be loaded
directly via PXE.
* The PXE boot loader does now download a boot tgz archive via TFTP. It
does no longer use the RemoteDisk protocol (it could actually be
removed from the boot loader). It also parses the DHCP options in the
DHCPACK packet provided by PXE and extracts the root path to be
mounted by the kernel.
* Reorganized the boot volume search in the kernel (vfs_boot.cpp) and
added support for network boot. In this case the net stack is
initialized and the network interface the boot loader used is brought
up and configured. Since NBD and RemoteDisk are our only options for
net boot (and those aren't really configurable dynamically) ATM, the
the boot device is found automatically by the disk device manager.

Booting via PXE does work to some degree now. The most grievous problem
is that loading certain drivers or kernel modules (or related activity)
causes a reboot (likely a triple fault, though one wonders where our
double fault handler is on vacation). Namely the keyboard and mouse input
server add-ons need to be deactivated as well as the media server.
A smaller problem is the net server, which apparently tries to
(re-)configure the network interface we're using to boot, which
obviously doesn't work out that well. So, if all this stuff is disabled
Haiku does fully boot, when using the RemoteDisk protocol (not being
able to use keyboard or mouse doesn't make this a particular fascinating
experience, though ;-)). I had no luck with NBD -- it seemed to have
protocol problems with the servers I tried.

Removed platform_boot_device_is_image() again; it's now replaced by a field
"booted_from_image" in the kernel_args' boot_disk structure.
Also, added fields "cd" and "user_selected".
A CHOICE_MENU menu can now have a choice text - this is automatically updated
as entries in the menu get selected.
The boot volume menu now has the initial choice text "CD-ROM or hard drive"
in case the boot loader was loaded from an image. The "Rescan volumes" item
is no longer selected by default (only if there was no boot volume found) - but

Boot loader: Add support for choosing an old packages state

For potential boot volumes with older packages states the respective
item in the boot volume menu now has a sub menu for selecting a state.
The boot loader functionality for this feature is complete -- i.e. the
respective kernel is loaded and the name of the old state is added to
the kernel args -- but kernel packagefs and package daemon support is
still missing.

Save previous session's debug syslog during boot

Add boot loader debug menu option "Save syslog from previous session
during boot". If enabled (defaults to true), the previous session's
debug syslog data is copy to a separate buffer and passed to the
kernel, which writes it back to the file /var/log/previous_syslog.
As long as Haiku still boots, this should now be the most convenient way
to retrieve the output from a kernel crash.

It's a browser for the system package content, where entries can be

FixedWidthPointer: Fix ==/!= operators, remove OtherType casts

* FixedWidthPointer:
- operators ==/!=: Change second operand type from void* to const
Type*. Also add non-const version to resolve ambiguity warning when
comparing with non-const pointer.
- Add Pointer() getter.
- Remove templatized cast operators. They are nice for casting the
pointer directly to another pointer type, but result in ambiguity.

the const and non-coast FixedWidthPointer comparison operators. A
cleaner (but more verbose) solution would be to spezialize
FixedWidthPointer for const types.

Don't store a KMessage in kernel_args for the boot volume, only the buffer address/size.

Pointers in kernel_args are going to be changed to unconditionally use 64-bit
storage (to make kernel_args compatible with both the x86 and x86_64 kernels).
KMessage stores a pointer to its buffer, however since KMessage is used
outside of the boot code it is undesirable to change it to use 64-bit storage
for the pointer as it may add additional overhead on 32-bit builds. Therefore,
only store the buffer address and size and then construct a KMessage from
those in the kernel.

Introduce BootVolume abstraction class

BootVolume is initialized from a root directory of a volume. It finds
the system directory, and -- not implemented yet -- mounts the system
package, if the system is packaged, replacing the system directory with
it. Adjusted several functionality (main(), the loader functions,
user_menu()) to use BootVolume instead of the root directory.

* Slightly alter the semantics of the input gathering function to take the
menu item it's associated with rather than an input string. This allows it
to calculate the position to start the input at, as well as the correct
line to place it on. The previous solution always put the input at the
center line, which happened to be the right place by happy coincidence
unless one also had the menu items for viewing/saving the debug syslog
present.
* Implement input buffer scrolling, and consequently lift the previous size
limit on user input (it is now only limited by the size of the passed in
buffer).
* Implement parsing of the input buffer to allow it to handle comma-separated
options. Thus, one can now input things like "disable_smp true, serial_debug_output false"
and it will be handled properly.

aren't otherwise exposed via the safe mode menus. The option can be
found under the debug options menu, where additional settings can be
added one at a time with the same syntax used in kernel settings files

Scrolling of the input buffer is not yet supported (will implement that
soon), so currently the input is clamped to the size of one line. This
shouldn't be a problem for our current set of options though.

When applying settings from the boot menus, aggregate them and then add them
to the kernel args in a single go. Otherwise we wind up with more link list
entries than expected, which in turn resulted in settings not quite being
parsed properly upon entering the kernel, which meant that if options were
chosen in both the debug and safe mode menus, only the debug ones were
applied. This might also have resulted in the kernel settings not being
loaded correctly in such an instance.

Should fix various issues people have had with safe mode settings not being
applied properly.

kernel:
* The kernel syslog ring buffer is no longer emptied by the syslog sender
thread. Instead we only drop the oldest data from the buffer when we're
writing to it and there's not enough free space in it.
Advantages: We drop old data rather than the most recent data when the buffer
is full. The "syslog" KDL command has more data available now. So the odds
are that kernel syslog messages not written to disk yet are at least still
in the kernel buffer.
* Changed dprintf_no_syslog() semantics: Now it writes to the syslog, but
doesn't notify the syslog sender thread.

boot loader:
* Added the ring_buffer implementation and a dummy user_memcpy().
* bios_x86: Moved the syslog stuff from serial.{cpp,h} to debug.{cpp.h}.
* Moved the debug options from the "Select safe mode options" menu to a new
"Select debug options" menu.
* Added option "Enable debug syslog" to the new menu (ATM available on x86
only). It allocates a 1 MB in-memory buffer for the syslog for this session
in such a way that it can be accessed by the boot loader after a reset.
* Added item "Display syslog from previous session" to the new menu, doing
what its name suggests.

* Added the possibility to debug latency issues with spinlocks.
* When DEBUG_SPINLOCK_LATENCIES is 1, the system will panic if any spinlock is
held longer than DEBUG_LATENCY micro seconds (currently 200). If your system
doesn't boot anymore, a new safemode setting can disable the panic.
* Besides some problems during boot when the MTRRs are set up, 200 usecs work
fine here if all debug output is turned off (the output stuff is definitely
problematic, though I don't have a good idea on how to improve upon it a lot).
* Renamed the formerly BeOS compatible safemode settings to look better; there
is no need to be compatible there.

back to the kernel settings, if it couldn't spot a setting in the safemode
settings. This allows for more control, and also makes enabling serial
debug output actually work (ie. overriding the kernel settings via safemode
options).
* Adjusted debug_init_post_vm(), and smp_init_other_cpus() to use
get_safemode_boolean().
* Therefore, I added safemode_settings.cpp to the boot loader as well.

[Sorry, couldn't split this one up any further.]
* Images preloaded by the boot loader had to be modules to be of any use
to the kernel. Extended the mechanism so that any images not accepted
by the module code would later be tried to be added as drivers by the
devfs. This is a little hacky ATM, since the devfs manages the drivers
using a hash map keyed by the drivers inode ID, which those drivers
obviously don't have.
* The devfs emulates read_pages() using read(), if the device driver
doesn't implement the former (all old-style drivers), thus making it
possible to BFS, which uses the file cache which in turn requires
read_pages(), on the device. write_pages() emulation is still missing.
* Replaced the kernel_args::boot_disk structure by a KMessage, which can
more flexibly be extended and deals more gracefully with
arbitrarily-size data. The disk_identifier structure still exists,
though. It is added as message field in cases where needed (non net
boot). Moved the boot_drive_number field of the bios_ia32 platform
specific args into the message.
* Made the stage 1 PXE boot loader superfluous. Moved the relevant
initialization code into the stage 2 loader, which can now be loaded
directly via PXE.
* The PXE boot loader does now download a boot tgz archive via TFTP. It
does no longer use the RemoteDisk protocol (it could actually be
removed from the boot loader). It also parses the DHCP options in the
DHCPACK packet provided by PXE and extracts the root path to be
mounted by the kernel.
* Reorganized the boot volume search in the kernel (vfs_boot.cpp) and
added support for network boot. In this case the net stack is
initialized and the network interface the boot loader used is brought
up and configured. Since NBD and RemoteDisk are our only options for
net boot (and those aren't really configurable dynamically) ATM, the
the boot device is found automatically by the disk device manager.

Booting via PXE does work to some degree now. The most grievous problem
is that loading certain drivers or kernel modules (or related activity)
causes a reboot (likely a triple fault, though one wonders where our
double fault handler is on vacation). Namely the keyboard and mouse input
server add-ons need to be deactivated as well as the media server.
A smaller problem is the net server, which apparently tries to
(re-)configure the network interface we're using to boot, which
obviously doesn't work out that well. So, if all this stuff is disabled
Haiku does fully boot, when using the RemoteDisk protocol (not being
able to use keyboard or mouse doesn't make this a particular fascinating
experience, though ;-)). I had no luck with NBD -- it seemed to have
protocol problems with the servers I tried.

added a boot menu option "Disable ACPI" and code to avoid loading the ACPI module when it's active. untested (because of sudden reboots when boot menu is used).

Mixed up concepts of a selected and a marked item - the Menu::ChoiceText() is now
set correctly (it behaved a bit fuzzy before).

Removed platform_boot_device_is_image() again; it's now replaced by a field
"booted_from_image" in the kernel_args' boot_disk structure.
Also, added fields "cd" and "user_selected".
A CHOICE_MENU menu can now have a choice text - this is automatically updated
as entries in the menu get selected.
The boot volume menu now has the initial choice text "CD-ROM or hard drive"
in case the boot loader was loaded from an image. The "Rescan volumes" item
is no longer selected by default (only if there was no boot volume found) - but
it's still functionless anyway.
The TAR fs will now appear as "Boot from CD-ROM" in the boot volume menu.
