The MIPS Boston board configuration tries to enable CONFIG_PCIE_XILINX.
That doesn't work since PCIE_XILINX depends on ARCH_ZYNQ || MICROBLAZE.
Remove that restriction.

Hi Guenter & all,

I'd prefer that this patch does not go in standalone. The intent for the MIPS 
Boston board is that this driver is enabled for MIPS by this patch:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9794361/

But not until after earlier patches in that series fix issues with the driver:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9794355/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9794357/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9794359/

That has been held up by disagreement about whether the driver should be using 
0-3 or 1-4 for hardware IRQ numbers, sadly, despite the driver already being 
in tree & clearly broken, and my series not changing which the driver uses...

In any case, I don't really mind if people would rather remove the 
architecture restrictions than just add MIPS, but I'd prefer this doesn't go 
in until the rest of my series since without at least patch 1 of my seres this 
will lead to various WARN()s on Boston boards.

Thanks,
    Paul

Not with qemu, at least not yet.

from the exchange, it doesn't look like that is going to be resolved anytime
soon.

Ok, I'll hold back with adding mips/boston to my qemu tests. Too bad.
Hope this is going to be resolved before qemu and/or platform support
for boston falls apart.

Makes me wonder - is there a way to add initrd support for the platform ?

It's true that your v5 series only changes xilinx from using hwirq 0-3
to 0-4 (with 0 being unused in both cases, and the addition of 4
fixing the "INTD doesn't work" bug).

However, I *would* like to see this issue cleaned up consistently
across all our drivers.  I mooted a couple ideas in [1], but nobody
seemed interested.  If I merged your series as-is, there would be even
less interest.

That isn't true - the xilinx-pcie driver already uses 1-4, and my change 
simply prevents it from hitting a WARN() in the IRQ code when doing so.

I've been travelling & haven't had time to look at any reworks as of yet, but 
I do think the driver as-is is clearly broken & my fix is a pretty obvious 
one, even if you would like the driver(s) to improve further in future.

Thanks,
    Paul

My apologies.  I was relying on the changelog, which says the current
code "creates an IRQ domain of size 4 (ie.  IRQ numbers 0 through 3)"
and the patch:

  -       port->leg_domain = irq_domain_add_linear(pcie_intc_node, 4,
  +       port->leg_domain = irq_domain_add_linear(pcie_intc_node, 1 + 4,

I'm not enough of an IRQ expert to understand why what I said was
incorrect (other than maybe INTD actually works, but emits a warning?)

My problem is that if all the drivers work because they use 5 numbers
(0-4), the issue will completely drop off everybody's radar.

The driver does create an IRQ domain of size 4, as though it is going to use 
numbering 0-3 with it. However the driver then goes on to use numbers 1-4, 
which leads to a warning from the IRQ code because the domain isn't big enough 
to cover the case where hwirq=4 (ie. INTD).

It still works because irq_domain_associate() ends up inserting a mapping for 
the IRQ into a radix tree rather than the linear_revmap array, but it's 
clearly wrong that the driver creates a domain of size 4 & then uses hwirq=4, 
hence the warnings.

I understand, and it's your call, but I'd argue that the driver as-is isn't 
just suboptimal but plain broken - and I think that fixing it so that it's 
"just" suboptimal is a worthwhile improvement that shouldn't be held up. But 
you're the maintainer, and if you'd like to use this to bribe me or someone 
else into improving things at some later date then so be it.

Does it really work?  It looks like irq_domain_associate() returns
-EINVAL after emitting the "error: hwirq 0x%x is too large for %s"
warning, so it doesn't look like it would call radix_tree_insert().

This issue has been raised before.  Each time it comes up it takes me
a long time to re-figure out what's going on, and I'm sort of tired of
doing that.  Given that I have no budget or staff, my tools for
getting things fixed are pretty limited, so I'm going to hold out for
a more comprehensive fix here.

True - the driver is more broken than I thought it was.

You're not unique in any of that I'm afraid, and I find it sad that holding 
out for a subsystem-wide improvement which will save one single entry in an 
IRQ domain results in a driver remaining broken for the time being despite a 
fix existing...

I'll have a look at the suggestions you made when I get time, but I have other 
things on my plate so can't yet say when that will be.

Thanks,
    Paul
