      scsi: fc: use get/put_unaligned64 for wwn access · ef3fb242
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      A bug in the gcc-6.0 prerelease version caused at least one
      driver (lpfc) to have excessive stack usage when dealing with
      wwn data, on the ARM architecture.
      lpfc_scsi.c: In function 'lpfc_find_next_oas_lun':
      lpfc_scsi.c:117:1: warning: the frame size of 1152 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Wframe-larger-than=]
      I have reported this as a gcc regression in
      However, using a better implementation of wwn_to_u64() not only
      helps with the particular gcc problem but also leads to better
      object code for any version or architecture.
      The kernel already provides get_unaligned_be64() and
      put_unaligned_be64() helper functions that provide an
      optimized implementation with the desired semantics.
      The lpfc_find_next_oas_lun() function in the example that
      grew from 1146 bytes to 5144 bytes when moving from gcc-5.3
      to gcc-6.0 is now 804 bytes, as the optimized
      get_unaligned_be64() load can be done in three instructions.
      The stack usage is now down to 28 bytes from 128 bytes with
      gcc-5.3 before.

      fnic: move printk()s outside of the critical code section. · 14cee5b4
      Maurizio Lombardi authored
      This patch moves a printk() outside of the code section where interrupt
      are disabled. In some cases a flood of error messages may cause a kernel
      panic.  It also removes one of the printk()s because the same error
      message was printed twice.

      cxlflash: Increase cmd_per_lun for better throughput · 83430833
      Manoj N. Kumar authored
      With the current value of cmd_per_lun at 16, the throughput
      over a single adapter is limited to around 150kIOPS.
      Increase the value of cmd_per_lun to 256 to improve
      throughput. With this change a single adapter is able to
      attain close to the maximum throughput (380kIOPS).
      Also change the number of RRQ entries that can be queued.

      cxlflash: Fix to avoid unnecessary scan with internal LUNs · 603ecce9
      Manoj N. Kumar authored
      When switching to the internal LUN defined on the
      IBM CXL flash adapter, there is an unnecessary
      scan occurring on the second port. This scan leads
      to the following extra lines in the log:
      Dec 17 10:09:00 tul83p1 kernel: [ 3708.561134] cxlflash 0008:00:00.0: cxlflash_queuecommand: (scp=c0000000fc1f0f00) 11/1/0/0 cdb=(A0000000-00000000-10000000-00000000)
      Dec 17 10:09:00 tul83p1 kernel: [ 3708.561147] process_cmd_err: cmd failed afu_rc=32 scsi_rc=0 fc_rc=0 afu_extra=0xE, scsi_extra=0x0, fc_extra=0x0
      By definition, both of the internal LUNs are on the first port/channel.
      When the lun_mode is switched to internal LUN the
      same value for host->max_channel is retained. This
      causes an unnecessary scan over the second port/channel.
      This fix alters the host->max_channel to 0 (1 port), if internal
      LUNs are configured and switches it back to 1 (2 ports) while
      going back to external LUNs.

      cxlflash: Reorder user context initialization · 5d1952ac
      Uma Krishnan authored
      In order to support cxlflash in the PowerVM environment, underlying
      hypervisor APIs have imposed a kernel API ordering change.
      For the superpipe access to LUN, user applications need a context.
      The cxlflash module creates this context by making a sequence of
      cxl calls. In the current code, a context is initialized via
      cxl_dev_context_init() followed by cxl_process_element(), a function
      that obtains the process element id. Finally, cxl_start_work()
      is called to attach the process element.
      In the PowerVM environment, a process element id cannot be obtained
      from the hypervisor until the process element is attached. The
      cxlflash module is unable to create contexts without a valid
      process element id.
      To fix this problem, cxl_start_work() is called before obtaining
      the process element id.

      cxlflash: Simplify attach path error cleanup · 8a96b52a
      Matthew R. Ochs authored
      The cxlflash_disk_attach() routine currently uses a cascading error
      gate strategy for its error cleanup path. While this strategy is
      commonly used to handle cleanup scenarios, it is too restrictive when
      function callouts need to be restructured. Problems range from
      inserting error path bugs in previously 'good' code to the cleanup
      path imposing design changes to how the normal path is structured.
      A less restrictive approach is needed to support ordering changes
      that come about when operating in different environments.
      To overcome this restriction, the error cleanup path is modified to
      have a single entrypoint and use conditional logic to cleanup where
      necessary. Entities that require multiple cleanup steps must be
      carefully vetted to ensure their APIs support state. In cases where
      they do not (none as of this commit) additional local variables can
      be used to maintain state on their behalf.

      cxlflash: Split out context initialization · 5e6632d1
      Matthew R. Ochs authored
      Presently, context information structures are allocated and
      initialized in the same routine, create_context(). This imposes
      an ordering restriction such that all pieces of information needed
      to initialize a context must be known before the context is even
      This design point is not flexible when the order of context
      creation needs to be modified. Specifically, this can lead to
      problems when members of the context information structure are
      a part of an ordering dependency (i.e. - the 'work' structure
      embedded within the context).
      To remedy, the allocation is left as-is, inside of the existing
      create_context() routine and the initialization is transitioned
      to a new void routine, init_context(). At the same time, in
      anticipation of these routines not being called in sequence, a
      state boolean is added to the context information structure to
      track when the context has been initilized. The context teardown
      routine, destroy_context(), is modified to support being called
      with a non-initialized context.

      cxlflash: Unmap problem state area before detaching master context · 6ded8b3c
      Uma Krishnan authored
      When operating in the PowerVM environment, the cxlflash module can
      receive an error from the hypervisor indicating that there are
      existing mappings in the page table for the process MMIO space.
      This issue exists because term_afu() currently invokes term_mc()
      before stop_afu(), allowing for the master context to be detached
      first and the problem state area to be unmapped second.
      To resolve this issue, stop_afu() should be called before term_mc().

      cxlflash: Simplify PCI registration · 961487e4
      Manoj N. Kumar authored
      The calls to pci_request_regions(), pci_resource_start(),
      pci_set_dma_mask(), pci_set_master() and pci_save_state() are all
      unnecessary for the IBM CXL flash adapter since data buffers
      are not required to be mapped to the device's memory.
      The use of services such as pci_set_dma_mask() are problematic on
      hypervisor managed systems as the IBM CXL flash adapter is operating
      under a virtual PCI Host Bridge (virtual PHB) which does not support
      these services.
      cxlflash 0001:00:00.0: init_pci: Failed to set PCI DMA mask rc=-5
      The resolution is to simplify init_pci(), to a point where it does the
      bare minimum (pci_enable_device). Similarly, remove the call the
      pci_release_regions() from cxlflash_remove().
