Problem building bin-arm32-efi/snp.efi with CONSOLE_SERIAL
I'm trying to build the bin-arm32-efi/snp.efi target for the Raspberry Pi 3 model b+ but am getting the following compilation errors when I have the config option CONSOLE_SERIAL set.

Code:

make: *** [bin-arm32-efi/snp.efi.tmp] Error 1
rm bin-arm32-efi/version.snp.efi.o

My toolchain is running on Ubuntu 17.10 x64 with the environment CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf- set.

I'm enabling the CONSOLE_SERIAL option in an attempt to get console access to the device over the serial interface. I'm loading the snp.efi module from U-Boot which has the console working correctly.

Has anyone tried something similar or got the serial console working for iPXE on the Raspberry Pi?

RE: Problem building bin-arm32-efi/snp.efi with CONSOLE_SERIAL
Currently the only implementation of UART is in src/arch/x86/include/bits/uart.h "16550-compatible UART"
Meaning there is no implementation of UART for arm, and in turn the reason for this is that there is no outb or inb implemented AFAIK.

I think the U-boot people can help you out a great deal here.

Read the FAQ before posting.
Did you include relevant ipxe.org error urls?
