MATH_DATA & .tmp_data save/restore for FreeRTOS

by Isaac Marino Bavaresco

This is file "sections.asm".

; I found the following message in Microchip's support site. The URL is:
; http://support2.microchip.com/KBSearch/KB_Ticket.aspx?ID=Tt6UJ9A0003LM
;
; Unfortunately these pseudo-instructions don't work as inline assembly,
; so I had to make this separate .asm module.
; The functions are used inside 'port.c' and are called by 'pxPortInitialiseStack'
; (GetTMPDATALen, GetTMPDATAStrt, GetMATHDATALen, GetMATHDATAStrt) and
; by the macros 'portSAVE_CONTEXT' (SaveTMP_MATH) and 'portRESTORE_CONTEXT'
; (RestoreTMP_MATH').

; Issue
;
; I'm developping a RTOS for the PIC18F258 using MPLAB-C18. I need to save in the
; task context the "MATH_DATA" and ".tmpdata" sections. But their address and size
; are only known after linking. The question is: How can I know the address and
; size of both sections at run time?
;
; Thanks
;
; Solution
; You CAN get the section location and size at runtime using MPASM.
; There are a few undocumented operators and pseudo-instructions.
;
; The SCNSZ operators give you the size of the section.
; The SCNSTART operators give you the starting address of a section.
; The SCNEND operators give you the ending address of a section.
; The SCNSTART_LFSR pseudo-instruction gives you an LFSR instruction with the starting address of the section.
; The SCNEND_LFSR pseudo-instruction gives you an LFSR instruction with the ending address of the section.
;
; Example:
; CODE
; movlw SCNSZ_LOW .tmpdata
; movlw SCNSZ_HIGH .tmpdata
; movlw SCNSZ_UPPER .tmpdata
; movlw SCNSTART_LOW .tmpdata
; movlw SCNSTART_HIGH .tmpdata
; movlw SCNSTART_UPPER .tmpdata
; movlw SCNEND_LOW .tmpdata
; movlw SCNEND_HIGH .tmpdata
; movlw SCNEND_UPPER .tmpdata
;
; SCNSTART_LFSR 0, .tmpdata
; SCNEND_LFSR 0, .tmpdata
;
; END
;
; These operators and pseudo-instructions will be documented in the next revision
; of the MPASM User's Guide.
