 Enable the RISC-V Port to run in RISC-V's Supervisor Mode (S-Mode).




 RISC-V port was merged in October 2017. However, it only runs in Machine
 Mode (M-Mode) which only has base-and-bound protection, but not
 implemented in RTEMS. RISC-V has a Supervisor Mode (S-Mode), which has an
 MMU and paging-based protection.


 The goal is to be able to "optionally" run RISC-V port in S-Mode.


     Knowledge of assembly, C Programming language.
     Knowledge of RISC-V architecture.
     Study the implementation of riscv-pk project (RTEMS will rely on it).
     Debugging experience especially at low-level/system levels.


     Current RTEMS developers.
     RISC-V's user-spec and priv-1.10 manuals.

 **Getting started as a GSoC student on this Project**

 If you are interested in working on this project as a GSoC project, there
 are a few basics you should do.

 You'll need to build the simulators (hint: Spike and/or QEMU), from riscv-

 **Build the rtems*-riscv toolchain from rtems-source-builder**

 **Build & run the BSP**

 Build & run the current RISC-V BSP (e.g. using the test set) and run it on
 Spike and/or QEMU.

 To show that you're up to speed with rebuilding RTEMS, make a change.
 Showing the result must be part of your proposal.

 **The official requirement is a ​Hello World project.**
