SW4STM32 and SW4Linux fully supports the STM32MP1 asymmetric multicore Cortex/A7+M4 MPUs

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world.
And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4.
You can get more information from the ac6-tools website and download two short videos (registration required) highlighting:

Retargeting getchar() function

Here my non blocking getchar. You need to clear the overflow otherwise the rx available will not rise again

bool getchar(uint8_t * ch)
       // check for overflow and clear

		*ch = huart1.Instance->RDR & 0x1FF;
		return true;

	return false;

And to make printf work in blocking mode:

void _write(int file, char *ptr, int len)
		HAL_UART_Transmit(&huart1, (uint8_t*) ptr, len, 10);
