Joseph Lo - Dec. 18, 2012, 2:30 a.m.
The "powered-down" CPU idle mode of Tegra cut off the vdd_cpu rail, it
include the power of GIC. That caused the SGI (Software Generated
Interrupt) been lost. Because the SGI can't wake up the CPU that in
the "powered-down" CPU idle mode. We need to check if there is any
pending SGI when go into "powered-down" CPU idle mode. This is important
especially when applying the coupled cpuidle framework into "power-down"
cpuidle dirver. Because the coupled cpuidle framework may have the
chance that misses IPI_SINGLE_FUNC handling sometimes.

For the PPI or SPI, something like the legacy peripheral interrupt. It
still can be maintained by Tegra legacy interrupt controller. If there
is any pending PPI or SPI when CPU in "powered-down" CPU idle mode. The
CPU can be woken up immediately. So we don't need to take care the same
situation for PPI or SPI.

This problem exists for any GIC-based SoC, and needs to be fixed in
gic_cpu_save or gic_dist_save, whichever one loses the interrupt.

Indeed, but may not need to be taken care for every SoC. It's depend on
HW design. Different SoC had different design about it. For ex, some SoC
only put CPU core to power saving mode not include GIC, or there is
another irq controller can handle the case when CPU go into power saving
mode. Differenc SoC had different usage here (some need to check all
pending irq, some need to check SGI only and some even no need to
consider this). So putting this into to common code may not a good
choice.

Not necessarily. It depends on the SoC design. On Tegra20, the entire CPU
cluster is railgated, including the GIC. This causes a pending IPI to be lost.
But for example on OMAP4, only the actual CPU cores are powergated. The GIC
stays alive until also the core domain hits idle. By that time a potential
pending IPI has long woken up the target CPU again, so no additional
checks are needed for functional correct behavior.

Cheers,

Peter.

I'm not sure that is correct for OMAP4.  C2 and C3 will put the power
rail for the GIC in retention, and I don't think an IPI will wake it
up.  I believe the same problem also exists for Exynos5.  In any case,
checking for an IPI early during idle and aborting won't hurt those
platforms, so I still think it should be in the GIC driver and not by
mapping the GIC registers into a separate driver.

Hi Colin,

If I move this code into common GIC driver, should I just take care
pending SGI also?

I will try to create a RFC patch for this.

Thanks,
Joseph

Hi Colin,

I just checked the scenario to abort cpu_pm_enter when there is any
pending SGI. This may break the current CPU idle driver that already
using cpu_pm_enter. If these drivers didn't handle the error return of
"cpu_pm_enter", the error will cause the CPU_PM_ENTER_FAILED be
triggered. Then the idle code will fail.

The other solution may just like this patch did. Adding an API
"gic_pending_sgi" to check if there is a pending SGI before putting the
CPU into low power mode. But I still don't think this is a common code
to be put there. It's still SoC specific code. So I still prefer the
current solution in this patch for Tegra.

Thanks,
Joseph

But even then PRCM will only trigger the transition to retention voltage after
both CPUs hit off mode. I guess a pending IPI will wakeup the core before the
PRCM starts the transition.

No it won't. You are talking about the voltage domain retention while
the point is SGI becomes useless once CPU power domain transition to
low power state. And btw, voltage transition also can not happen just
with two CPU's in retention. It does have dependency like cluster power 
state to hit retention.

CPUs have their own power domain state and once they enter into any low
power state apart from ON power state, SGI doesn't work. hope this is
clear.

So why does OMAP4 have working coupled idle without the SGI check then?

Because whenever the OMAP4 CPUs enter into any power states apart from
ON, clock-domain force wakeup method us being used to wakeup
secondary CPUs. And secondly CPU RET is not supported on purpose because
of some known IP block issues.

Aha. That explains indeed why you don't need the check.

Cheers,

Peter.

Just for the information on OMAP5 SOC, CPU RET is supported and the
couple idle works on it without IPI. As I mentioned, we do use
clock-domain force wakeup method for wakeup. Code is out of the
tree hence i didn't mention that in first place.
