      PCI: shpchp: Use per-slot workqueues to avoid deadlock · f652e7d2
      Bjorn Helgaas authored
      When we have an SHPC-capable bridge with a second SHPC-capable bridge
      below it, pushing the upstream bridge's attention button causes a
      The deadlock happens because we use the shpchp_wq workqueue to run
      shpchp_pushbutton_thread(), which uses shpchp_disable_slot() to remove
      devices below the upstream bridge.  When we remove the downstream bridge,
      we call shpc_remove(), the shpchp driver's .remove() method.  That calls
      flush_workqueue(shpchp_wq), which deadlocks because the
      shpchp_pushbutton_thread() work item is still running.
      This patch avoids the deadlock by creating a workqueue for every slot
      and removing the single shared workqueue.
      Here's the call path that leads to the deadlock:
          queue_work(shpchp_wq)		# shpchp_pushbutton_thread
                    shpc_remove		# shpchp driver .remove method
      This change is based on code inspection, since we don't have hardware
      with this topology.

      PCI: shpchp: Handle push button event asynchronously · d347e758
      Bjorn Helgaas authored
      Use non-ordered workqueue for attention button events.
      Attention button events on each slot can be handled asynchronously. So
      we should use non-ordered workqueue. This patch also removes ordered
      workqueue in shpchp as a result.
       ("PCI: pciehp: Handle push button event asynchronously") made
      the same change to pciehp.  I split this out from a patch by Yijing Wang
      <wangyijing@huawei.com> so we fix one thing at a time and to make the
      shpchp history correspond more closely with the pciehp history.

      shpchp: update workqueue usage · e24dcbef
      Tejun Heo authored
      * Rename shpchp_wq to shpchp_ordered_wq and add non-ordered shpchp_wq
        which is used instead of the system workqueue.  This is to remove
        the use of flush_scheduled_work() which is deprecated and scheduled
        for removal.
      * With cmwq in place, there's no point in creating workqueues lazily.
        Create both shpchp_wq and shpchp_ordered_wq upfront.
      * Include workqueue.h from shpchp.h.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      [PATCH] PCI Hotplug: shpchp: AMD POGO errata fix · 53044f35
      Keck, David authored
      This patch fixes the AMD POGO errata on the hotplug controller where the
      platform will lock up or reboot if PERR/SERR generation is enabled and a
      slot is sent an enable command.  This fix disables PERR/SERR generation
      before a slot is sent the enable command by first saving related
      registers, turning off SERR/PERR generation, enabling the slot, then
      restoring the registers.

      [PATCH] shpchp: fix improper wait for command completion · bd62e271
      Kenji Kaneshige authored
      Current SHPCHP driver uses msleep_interruptible() function to wait for
      a command completion event. But I think this would cause an unnecessary
      long wait until timeout, if command completion interrupt came before
      task state was changed to TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE. This patch fixes this
      issue. With this patch, command completion becomes faster as follows:

      	user    0m0.000s
      	sys     0m0.524s

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
