RE: Adding commands to RedBoot

Here is a version of redboot/current/src/main.c that supports 2 new

edit -b <address> -v <value> [-s <size>]
fill -b <address> -l <length> -v <value>

size is the size in bytes of the value, either 1, 2, or 4 (sorry, no 64 bit
support yet).
If the -s option is omitted, the default is 4 (32 bits)

The function that does all the work is called diag_edit().  I'm not sure it
go in main.c, so I've just included it here.  I put it in
infra/current/src/diag.cxx at the bottom, next to the dump utilities. From
the email
Jonathan suggests otherwise.

#include <cyg/hal/hal_io.h>

externC void
diag_edit(void *p, unsigned long x, unsigned long s)
  switch(s) {
    case 1:
      HAL_WRITE_UINT8(p,(unsigned char) x);
    case 2:
      HAL_WRITE_UINT16(p,(unsigned short) x);
    case 4:
      HAL_WRITE_UINT32(p,(unsigned long) x);

If you've looked at the sources, you've probably already seen RedBoot_Cmd.

diag.cxx? Surely not. Put them in main.c beside dump. Although once we
reach that point, we may choose to break some of the commands out of main.c
as it's getting quite big...

Yep, or whatever HAL macros are appropriate. There should probably be a
size argument to edit (byte, halfword, word, or perhaps instead just the
length in bytes).
