FallenouMMU generates exception, exception handler adds a tlb entry, and then it jumps back into the code where exception was raised20:18
sb0great success!20:18
Fallenousurprisingly it was not very hard to achieve !20:19
Fallenouit is still poorly tested, I just tried it once, maybe I was lucky with pipeline timings this time as well :)20:20
wpwrakwhee !!20:20
sb0congratulations! hopefully we'll get some serious Ya Nanonote ASIC done out of it ...20:20
Fallenouwo wo don't scare me with ASIC :)20:21
sb0I'd love to see a direct CPU bus interface on that chip too, so that it can be connected to a FPGA to solve the problem of the slow softcore20:21
Action: Fallenou does not want to be responsible for million dollars loss for a missing ';'20:21
sb0nah ASICs start at $10k20:21
Action: Fallenou feels better =)20:22
sb0it's quite annoying if we fuck up, but not a disaster either20:22
FallenouI thought you didn't think hooking an asic cpu to a bus connected to a fpga was a good idea ?20:22
sb0yes because those buses are crappy20:22
sb0but if we make the ASIC we can have a good one20:23
Fallenouhumm ok !20:23
Action: Fallenou had the armadeus in head20:23
sb0and also we keep a free arch20:23
sb0screw ARM20:23
Fallenouas a bad example of course ;)20:23
Fallenouhow is it going your US trip ?20:24
sb0last hours in Ann Arbor (I'm at the hackspace atm), going soon to Chicago for this 16-hour connection thanks to the train Amtrak cancelled20:26
Fallenouthink of it as the SNCF/RATP failure trying to reach you abroad20:27
sb0yeah, I'll take the car ferry next time. if only I had a good connection in those car shipping companies (which usually carry hundreds of cars, not one)20:28
sb0this will also rid me of the stress of flying and the TSA security theatre20:28
FallenouI guess you seem pretty dangerous with all your electronic stuff in your bags for a security agent20:30
sb0unfortunately the only "normal" way to go to the US by sea is with luxury cruise boats which cost 8000E and won't take the car20:30
wpwraksb0: maybe there's a ferry between siberia and alaska that will take your car ?20:31
sb0Fallenou, actually the TSA didn't bother me too much this time. but I guess this was only because the airport was so crowded there was a good two-hour queue...20:33
sb0wpwrak, I'm actually thinking about driving to China. but I'll probably need a Jeep (or similar) though.20:36
sb0I know someone who did France->Mongolia with a regular car, and it wasn't quite in a roadworthy state in the end20:36
sb0had to go back by plane...20:37
Fallenouquite an adventure anyway =)20:38
wpwrak(go back by plane) in how many bags ? :)20:40
sb0oh, no one died :)20:41
sb0despite niceties like landmines close to the afghan border20:41
sb0siberia is probably safer20:41
wpwrakfor this sort of extreme trip, you're probably better off buying an old used car and just ending the trip wherever it breaks down20:41
sb0hmm, I think their car broke down only a thousand kilometer or so after leaving the first world20:42
sb0they had to improvise fixes all along the way...20:43
wpwrakfreezing to death while stuck in the snow/swamp is probably nicer than dying of limbs blasted off by a landmine, yes20:43
sb0well, this needs very careful planning :)20:43
wpwrakand you should finish migen and llhdl before that trip :)20:44
Fallenoudefinetely =)20:47
mwallelol :)20:49
wpwrakmaybe leave a few tissue samples as well, in case we hit some bugs we can't figure out how to fix and need to grow a clone20:49
Fallenouthat could be a great idea to have several sb0 to work on different problems in parallel20:50
wpwrakvery good point !20:55
sb0anyway time for the train20:57
Fallenoudamn it, we didn't take the opportunity to grab a tissue sample :(20:59
wpwrakmaybe we can ask the TSA to share theirs21:06
