From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>

The runtime PM of PCIe ports turns out to be quite fragile, as in
some cases things work while in some other cases they don't and we
don't seem to have a good way to determine whether or not they are
going to work in advance.

For this reason, avoid enabling runtime PM for PCIe ports by
keeping their runtime PM reference counters always above 0 for the
time being.

This version also removes the no longer necessary (and empty anyway)
port_runtime_pm_black_list[] table.

Thanks,
Rafael

Do you have any references to problems encountered when enabling
runtime PM for PCIe ports?  That information will be useful to anybody
who wants to take another crack at getting this working.

Well, bug 53811 is one example and problems recently reported by
Martin are another.  Do you want me to dig deeper?

OK, I got this one:

  https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53811

Martin has reported a lot of problems lately, and I don't know which
are related to runtime PM for PCIe ports.  I was hoping for a couple
URLs to put in the changelog so that when somebody gets the itch to
make this work, they have some useful info to start from.  If you
point me at a specific message, I'll dig up an archive URL for it.

Otherwise, I'm afraid we'll just oscillate between "enable PM, find
bug, disable PM, enable PM, find same bug, disable PM, etc..."

This is the message in which Martin confirmed that the previous version of
the $subject patch made insert/removal of devices into xHCI ports on his
system work again.

That's a valid concern, but I think we have an idea about what kind of problems
the runtime PM of PCIe ports may cause to happen (generally, PME and hotplug
notifications may not work as expected).

Rafael

In the thread

Re: 3.8.2: xhci port is dead until pcieport PME# goes to disabled
http://marc.info/?t=136328222600002&r=1&w=2

I reported that if an upstream express root port 1c.4 of the xHCI controller
at 0b:00 is suspended the USB3 socket on the laptop appears dead.
Initially I found that 'lsusb -v' rescues the dead socket and is accompanied
by these in logs:

[ 1445.597641] pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: PME# disabled
[ 1445.617667] xhci_hcd 0000:0b:00.0: PME# disabled

Ying Huang then realized elsewhere I am running laptop-mode-tools although
in their config file I set that they should NOT be run when on AC power.
Looks they do enable 'auto' power mode as seen in
/sys/bus/pci/devices/*/power/control files already upon bootup.
BTW, even worse, if I do /etc/init.d/laptop-mode-tools stop
they restore to some initial values. :(( So, if I meanwhile forced
'on' for some device they will return me back to 'auto' and the device
will immediately do suspend. ;-)

Provided I uninstalled the laptop-mode-tools and made sure all control
files say 'on' (and hence runtime_status files say 'active') then
my problem is with a dead xHCI port 'obeyed'.

Myself it weird that suspend of the port happens only upon USB device
unplug. The port does not suspend by itself if unused.


What is not clear to me how kernel is going to handle laptop-mode-tools
which enabled powersaving on the 1c.4. In my naive, user view kernel does
not realize and *check* that no user tool or a desperate user tried to
suspend an upstream port while there is something bound to it and it
does not apply a check for cascaded devices (1c.4 > 0b:00 and
1c.7 -> 11:00 in my case).

I am writing this without a reference but modprobe of a driver can overcome
suspended root port. I am in this particular case meaning my 1c.7 port
and its downstream 11:00 express card device. From the top of my head
I am not sure if modprobe overcame both 1c.7 and 11:00 being initially
suspended. I could dig it out from the

Re: 3.9-rc1: pciehp and eSATA card SiI 3132, no XHCI
http://marc.info/?t=136305008800001&r=1&w=2

thread if you want. Or it might be easier for you to test it yourself.



So, for me the issue is not fixed but if you decide to disable runtime
power saving for devices under pcieport I don't mind. Their mishandling
definitely causes my acpiphp hotplug issues under 3.7-3.8 kernels
(3.9-rc not tested) whereas these PM issues do not answer why pciehp
is broken on 3.7-3.9-rc1.


Anyway, this patch maybe only good because I would like to use the
laptop-mode-tools and they for sure will put one of the devices into 'auto'
and it will likely fall into suspend.

I was thinking about this one in particular:

For bug 53811, I have a debug patch posted in bugzilla to disable
runtime PM for PCIe port with hotplug capability.  It appears that
patch resolved the issue for the reporter.  Do think that patch can
solve the hotplug issue.

For Martin's hotplug issue, it appears that a similar patch I sent to
him resolve his hotplug issue too.  For Martin's "XHCI dead port"
issue, that is, PME issue.  I just sent him another debug patch to
try.  Sorry for late!

Sorry for late!  I am trying to fix a way to fix 53811 and Martin's
bug without disable PM for port totally.

I applied this to for-linus for v3.9, and added a stable tag for v3.6+.  Thanks!
