The manual tells that I can use ETM in both self-host debugging and external debugging. With DStream and DS-5, the ETM works well. However, i find that i can not modify the tracing registers in DS-5, the command always leads to "verify error on memory operation".
Moreover, can i use ETM without JTAG and DStream? I mean i want to enable the tracing and read the ETB from the EL3, i guess it should be feasible as it supports self-host debugging. However, after i plug out the JTAG, I can not read the memory region CSS_DEVICE in trusted firmware. I checked the manual, all the debugging related (CTI, ETM, trace) components are mapped to this region (0x20000000-0x2e000000), but the read operation to this region in EL3 leads to stuck. I am really confused about it. I have checked the MMU page tables and even tried to disable MMU, but i still got stuck.
Really appreciate for any help!
Edit 09/02/2016: Not only the ETM, if i try to read from the coresight debug and trace memory region (0x20000000-0x23350000) in EL3 without plugging in JTAG, the system just stuck there. I think it is not caused by memory mapping as i got the same result even if i temporarily disabled the MMU. Did i miss something special?
SCP is definitely old. The Set Device Power State was supported but lots of issues were
fixed since last December. Since I am not complete aware of Linaro releases, I would
suggest(just for sake of getting the firmware and other setup right), use the latest mainline
(yet to be tagged v4.9-rc1, as there are few coresight driver bug fixes) with latest 16.09
