[DEV] Ports reorganization

Postby Giovanni » Sun Jul 12, 2020 4:26 pm

Hi,

Ports are being reworked because the transition to RT7, my idea is also to reorganize them by family. Currently we have a single ARMCMx port, it will be split as follow:

- ARMv6-M for Cortex-M0, M0+ and M1.
- ARMv7-M for Cortex-M3, M4 and M7.
- ARMv8-M-ML for Cortex-M33 and M55.
- ARMv8-M-ML-TZ for Cortex-M33 and M55 with Trust Zone support, both host and guest RTOS scenarios (this one is already present in trunk).

It will be quite some work but Corex-Ms are growing and it has become a nest of inclusions and preprocessor directives, ugly code.
