[Ovmsdev] ESP-IDF v4 / v5 - baby steps

Hi list,

Another quick post to share with you the progress on the ESP-IDFv5 + 
cmake endeavour:

  * ESP-IDF v5 version of OVMSv3 is now officially booting and seems to
    work fine (then again, I'm not doing any real-world testing for lack
    of time / car at the moment - it's here that you can help me) with a
    few caveats detailed in the PR or the README.md

  * The branch
    is now ready for testing, sharing, studying, ...

  * I created a draft PR
    (just like for ESP-IDFv4), in order to show the diff and gather
    feedback. Not to be merged as-is.

  * I'll try to break it into smaller low-impact / easy-to-review PR's
    that could be merged as-is in current master (warning corrections,
    header definitions, xxprintf type impact, etc...), so that the big
    pieces could be more easily reviewed.

Please note that those branches / PRs are still Work-In-Progress, and 
that I may certainly (and wrongly) `push --force` some changes as I 
rebase, update or split the big PR into smaller, easy to study PRs. I'll 
try not to but can't promise :-)
So if you checkout the branch, please be warned and know your git 
commands to either reset or rebase your working copy...

Next on my list are, in no particular order:

  * Have a few patches/bugs fixed in upstream wolfSSL (in progress) in
    order to enable
  * Check to see if we could upgrade mongoose (not absolutely necessary
    because it works / compile OK with a small patch)
  * Fix the remaining warnings
      o And change the ADC implementation that is deprecated now
      o deprecation of esp_vfs_fat_spiflash_mount /
  * Fix the WIP WIP WIP commits
  * Resume work on

Boot time warnings to study and check if OK:

  * W (1091) esp_psram: Virtual address not enough for PSRAM, map as
    much as we can. 4MB is mapped
  * W (2132) ADC: legacy driver is deprecated, please migrate to
    `esp_adc/adc_oneshot.h`   (<- this one is easy to understand...)

Additional instructions:

When first building, your sdkconfig will be converted as some config 
options did change betwen ESP-IDF v3.x and v5.x.

Run `menuconfig` and :

  * *Unselect MG_ENABLE_SSL*(=n) "Enable MONGOOSE SSL/TLS support"

If any of you with some free time could be nice enough to try to 
reproduce such a build and share the experience here. Let me know how 
the instructions could be updated and what issues you are facing.

Best regards,
