Feature #5061: freebsd boot loader integration (loader project)
want ficl scripting engine in illumos (loader project)
As the loader project is progressing, I'm intending to build up the stage to make it possible to integrate FreeBSD loader to illumos. Loader is using ficl for command processor, the loader itself is depending on ficl, but also ficl is used as tool to extract information about loader settings in user space apps in loader project.
the intention is to have shared source path:
for both userland and loader, and this feature request shall bring in this source tree and usr/src/lib/libficl tree for ficl runtime library (32/64 bit) and usr/src/cmd/ficl shell (32/64 bit), packaged as developer/ficl.
The ficl version is 4.1.0 + many bug fixes to address 64bit issues, issues related to API change from 3.x to 4.x, also replaced LZ77 softcore compression with LZ4. In addition, libficl does provide access to loader emulator calls to mimic loader environment, implemented via bf_ prefix calls. The libficl interface is private, and subject to future development.
