AR Minutes 1/17/2023
Topics covered in the AR meeting:
- Fast interrupts: It was noted that one of the CLIC CSRs had
been changed to be read-only, but that the new address was
poorly chosen given other anticipated CSR uses. A github issue will
be posted for this.
- IOMMU: No new substantive issues have emerged, but the AR committee
would like to read over spec changes one more time, with the goal of
having AR vote next week.
- Vector Crypto and Element Groups (EG): It was discussed how to
handle ratification of the EG proposal on which vector crypto
depends. The EG document does not add or change any functionality
in the base RVV 1.0 vector spec. The proposal is to include the EG
document in the ratification package along with vector crypto. The
EG doc will be folded into the vector base spec in future ISA
- RAS interrupt numbers: Brief discussion that AR still feels that it
is premature to assign numbers for RAS interrupt numbers until the
hardware that drives the interrupts is defined.
